    Hello Harriet. One of the posters on here @Henry Irving met him a few years ago. So maybe your search for more information might start with him..?

    My Dad remembers your grandfather well and speaks fondly of him.

    Just after the war my dad lived in Flaxton Road, Plumstead and Eric would often stop and talk to him and my uncle on his way home - they were both young boys at the time. When we reached the cup final in 1947 Eric gave a couple of tickets to my grandfather who took my uncle to the famous match - my own dad deemed to be too young!

    Dad met Eric again at the unveiling of the Sam Bartram statue and spoke at length with him - I think he was pleased to be remembered from his playing days during such a successful time in the club's history.

    While way before my time, I have a sheet of autographs, Eric's included, from the cup final team that your grandfather had arranged for my Dad.

    I hope you get to uncover plenty of articles/pictures etc about your grandfather.
