I lived in Royal Military Avenue during the '50s and went to Sir John Moore Primary School, I remember once a year we used to march to the cemetery and lay a posy of flowers from our garden on the grave of a Canadian soldier. I also remember the 'Six Windows' on the Manage (Menage?) which was a horse riding centre. We used to climb up a flight of steps outside to watch the horses.
