    This picture was uncovered by Joseph's granddaughter Helen Bachari while sorting through family photographs. There may be more photos to be uncovered from this source in due course.Hope this is of interest.

    Thanks to Helen for allowing the photo to be shared.

    Would it be possible to share this with the Heritage Group of the Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway Association?

    Hi Duncan,

    No problems in sharing the picture. I would respectfully ask that proper credit is given to Helen in any posting. If anyone on the RH&DR Heritage Group has any info relating to Joseph Pritchard, or indeed the loco's time at Bellevue, I would be very pleased to pass this on to Helen.

    Thanks

    Keith
