Formal Portrait of Sid and Lucy Edwards taken in 1943, it would be their Silver Wedding Anniversary portrait as they married in 1918.

Sid continued to work for the railways, eventually becoming an Inspector on what was by then the LNER. After he retired - presumably at aged 65 in 1958 - he worked at Export Packing Services, Chipping Warden, then as a gardener at Eydon Hall until shortly before his death.

Lucy retuned to being a maid, becoming ladies maid for Mrs (later Lady) Brand at Eydon Hall. Lady Brand gave her a dolls house in 1935 for Lucy's youngest daughter to play with. (KL244) She later worked for Lady Brand's daughter Virginia and her second husband Sir Edward Ford, who was an assistant private secretary to King George VI. In summer she would travel to Balmoral to cook for the Fords. She met the Queen Mother on several occasions. For their Golden Wedding see KL210 Photographer: Unknown professional
