My mother once told me that her grandfather, Alexander Hannah, was the landlord of the Sailor Prince in Peckham. **

In her collection of photographs there is one taken outside that pub, and it has an inscription on the back that says "Sailor Prince 1914 Gordon Road Peckham". It shows a group of people outside of the pub (the name "Sailor Prince" is displayed on the window behind them) with my great grandfather Alexander Hannah in the centre, who is clearly the landlord.

He is flanked by two ladies, one being my great grandmother Rebecca Hannah (nee Walton) and the other my Grandmother Ellen Hough (a year before her marriage to my Grandfather John Hannah who was in the army). **
