Phil Ashworth - Charlie Horwood reacquaints himself with the guard's green flag

There was a surprise birthday party in Rewley Road. VAMES oldest working member, Charlie Horwood, was expecting a quiet day working on his pet project, the station at Denham Green.

He was lured away under the pretext of meeting a friend. Many friends in fact, as unbeknown to Charlie a special 90th birthday party had been laid on for families and friends and of course the birthday boy.

Charlie worked on the railways as a guard, on services from Aylesbury to Marylebone, so what better way of marking the event than to take up the guard's flag once more!

Quainton News would like to add our congratulations. We look forward to Charlie's ton up. Ed.
