Many thanks for your note about your father Peter Holmes and his involvement with AEI Dramatic Society. Our knowledge of this Society is limited and comes from a couple of programmes found on eBay a few years ago. Would you have any more information that we could use? I would be really interested as I founded the Aldermaston Players in 1993 and the history of drama in Aldermaston is fascinating.

My father Peter Holmes worked at A.E.I. and directed and performed in plays by the Dramatic Society.
Thanks for this as we now have permission to reproduce the article on the website … for a small consideration. Just do an onsite search for ‘Tatler’ and you’ll find it.
Thank you so much for the research. I did find the article and it’s really interesting. I have written to seek permission to reproduce on the website , so we’ll wait and see. I’ll also let Polly know.
Polly (and other readers) may like to know that the Tatler magazine article she recalls seems to be available on the British Newspaper Archive website. It’s the 29th March 1961 edition, over several pages with photos.

I think date range for this photo is between 1984 (lift bridge was installed) and 1990 (Sterling Cables left the Swan Drive/Kingfisher Close site). Other notable features – restoration of Aldermaston Lock was 1983 and the “new” building at what is now Alderbridge School (formerly Bridge House Home School) was built in 1980.
Apologies, I have now found two Arthur Tulls on CWGC, so Arthur Dick Tull is not the one who lived at The Slade, Bucklebury. I do have a birth for Arthur Dick Tull in 1881 registered at Kingsclere, so he would be 34 when he died in 1915. But no trace as yet on the census.
I have traced Arthur Dick Tull, mentioned on your Centenary War Memorial, as I came across him while looking for WW1 soldiers at Thatcham and Midgham. He was born in Bucklebury in 1886, son of George and Lucy, and lived at The Slade, Bucklebury (census 1891, 1901), by 1911 he was living at The Bothy, Aldermaston. Confusingly he is listed as born at Tadley, but there is no Arthur Tull registered in Hants for that period.
