  1. Been on the go for years, got the info just needs putting together and finding a publisher. I am focusing on Arthur Dyson and family since other people not really covered that part. No point doing thing other people have done. I do talks .
  2. I cant find a pic either. Interested because it was a house burgled by Charles Peace and need a pic for my book.
  3. Large one at Grenoside near the mental hospital, Amazing building. Brick built with concrete roof. Heavy steel doors, metal bunk beds. Used to play in it. No one seems to know anything about it now, It should have been photographed documented.
  4. Interesting stuff. Had a look around and absolutely nothing left apart from the goit to the dam. No sign of the bridge. Drawing by William Lowe c 1850
  5. Hi, I have been on that forum as Wharnie and failed to make any contact. I dont believe there are any relatives, ot close any how. I, am a Dyson but not close. Most Dysons are 90% related. Thanks for help PS I am doing a talk on the family in March at Darnall Library
  6. I have been recently told that the Banners material was privately purchased and is now at the Aircraft Museum Doncaster. I intend to visit shortly. Looking for ARP ambulance info.
  7. Very interesting. Do you have any more information please, where was he based? My mother was a member and I am trying to piece things together
  8. Hi Andy, I am afraid I had to sell it, I mentioned it to the archives but they didnt want it.
  9. Brilliant photos, thanks. This pic below shows a Pye Bank group. Other pics mention Pitsmoor (will that be Pye Bank?) I searched "Ambulance" http://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;u01662&action=zoom&pos=126&id=37002&continueUrl= Some stories, detail of photos, names would be interesting - before they are lost. Do you have any artefacts? The City Museum only has a uniform and no information at all.
  10. I have been trying to write up my mothers story and the story of May Mirfin, very little info on the Ambulance service. My mother was base at Hartley Brook, Mirfin was but also had a connection with Corporation st. I wondered if I might send you the draft story to have a look at and perhaps add something more. I would like to use the photo if I may please, credit given Its for yet another none commercial venture, I will give it to local studies. The uniforms suggest later years of the war? The pic below is Corporation st. theres another copy on picturesheffield with others. Thanks mike
  11. Marvellous photo can you give any more information please. My mother was also a driver.
