Tom Bennett: Scruttons Football Team

Obituary from Daily Telegraph

Hi Annie I have attached a photo showing a team from Scruttons Ltd.  The interesting thing is that the person standing next to the referee is named Tom Bennett.   Tom’s obituary was published in to-day’s Daily Telegraph  perhaps you could read it.   I certainly did not know of his war record and it was something he never spoke about. It just goes to show your can walk with giants and still not know their size. Regards Tony Downey
