Dennis Frank White, of Spalding, was also part of the town’s VE Day celebrations 70 years ago.

Dennis was aged seven when he was pictured in this soldier boy outfit for the fancy dress parade that was part of the fun.

Frank says he came third, but doesn’t remember if he received a prize.

He adds: “It was made of paper so it’s a good job it didn’t rain.”

Frank, as he is known to friends, also recalls there being a fight going on in a boxing ring.

As vice-chairman of the Spalding branch of the Royal British Legion, Frank says they are always looking for new member to join. The branch meets on the second Tuesday of every month at 35b Spring Gardens (6pm).
