    I am very lucky to find this clip, I and my family are in the family group photograph, My mother was 2nd prize winner and received a cheque for £15, I have the original letter send from the Sunday Pictorial. I would be grateful if any body could tell me the date of the original publication in the newspaper. The article was also reproduced in the magazine
    Reveille.
