I am looking for the whereabouts of a Mr Peter Clive Larkin, last heard of in the Hastings area.

If he is still alive, he would be 81. We were great friends in the 1950s and if it isn’t too late I would like to meet up with him.

So if anyone knows of him, please let me know via the newspaper.

I know that he went to Australia before coming back to Sussex.

He was born in Goudhurst, Kent and was a qualified mechanic.

Back in the ’50s he was a Skid Kid (all the rage then).

A book has recently been written about life in Horsmonden in the past and Peter is in it.

If you have any information about him please write to the Hastings Observer at observer@trbeckett.co.uk
