  • This is amazing. My Mum and Dad met at Forest Gate rink in 1934. I still have a silver medal which my Dad left me when he died. It was inscribed with his name P.W Millidge and Football on Skates Forest Gate Rink. He was so proud of it.
    I wonder if anyone remembers Lily Grain or Percy Millidge? I loved watching that clip. Thanks so much. Sue.
