My dad john jackson was standing to the right of this picture with people who were housed in chadwell prefabs.. After the flood. Lined up what we call the new hill and waving at her majesty queen Elizabeth the 2nd as she came down to tilbury to veiw the floods. He was 15 then. He's now 78. Still tells me all about it
