    Hello Again,

    Just wondered if anyone still remembers or knows an elf, from this Pathe News film clip? Where was it recorded?

    My Dad, was married to Delphine Gwilliam, who was one of the elves, and aged 9 years at the time.

    Please contact me if you do?

    Kind Regards

    Keith Hogben 01908 615825 [Son of Delphine Gwilliam]
