* 25/6/07 Neil Holmes 52 writes: I notice that the early 1950s Christmas Card submitted by June Lawrance shows signs of two tennis court nets on the lawn in front of Armitages study. I won the inaugural School Junior Tennis Tournament final against Brian Lofty Ward (score 6-1, 6-4) in 1955 or 1956, so I would suggest that the photo is more mid 50s than early 50s. Not that it matters, but every picture tells a story, if you look for fine detail.
