THIS is a great privilege. News Shopper’s editor has invited me to take an occasional journey back into that magical world which we know as nostalgia.

My aim is not just to please the over-50s.

With the help of your letters, photographs and anecdotes I hope younger people, too, will enjoy a glimpse of a past in which they never participated.

Every other week I will look at an aspect of the 20th century (or even earlier) with an emphasis on anniversaries and personalities which may have a topical or local relevance to the area.

I have written a number of books about Kent and have met many people with great stories to tell especially in north Kent and the towns and villages in the area served by this newspaper.

However, I would like to hear more. If you have a story, photograph, letter or an anecdote to pass on, write to me at Bob Ogley, News Shopper, Mega House. Crest View Drive, Petts Wood, Kent BR5 1BT or email bobogley@globalnet.co.uk. You can also visit my website frogletspublications.co.uk

What wally wrote the headline?

The whole point of Bob's nostalgia column is that it is about North West Kent, not "SE London".

Beginning an historical series by rewriting that history is ridiculous.
