    I was a local lad living in The Square in Five Oak Green.
    Picked hops at Ploggs Hall in 1950 when I was 11 years old. Had half a bin.
    Picked hops in 1951 now 12 years old.
    The whole workforce went on strike for a better rate per bushel in 1951.
    As a young lad remembered a bad fire when a lot of huts were burned down.
