A GOLDEN Years photograph reunited two friends who had not seen each other for about 20 years.

Ray Lee, 74, from Rustington, said he believed this photo was taken of RW Scotts factory, which was based in Fort Road, Littlehampton.

Ray said he had fond memories of his time working there, from 1955 to 1958, and would often play football with many of his workmates.

He said: “They used to do copper roofing on churches all over the county.

“It was one of the biggest factories in Fort Road and Littlehampton at the time.”

Brian Denyer, 71, from East Preston, also phoned to say he believed the photo was taken at RW Scotts, where he also worked.

The pair mentioned each other individually in their phone calls, and asked to have each other’s numbers.

Brian said they had not seen each other in around 20 years.

He added: “Those really were the good old days.”
