Here you go, pictures provided by Rich Kid:
 
 
And not to be modest (and can you spot the famous face?)
 
 
and a little bit further away, the A413 Chalfont St Giles in the early 50's

I think the famous face is Peter Brough, ventriloquist of Archie Andrews.  Are you his son ArtB?

I did have an Uncle Peter... but not that one. My quip on modesty was regarding Rich Kid.
 
However, there is definately one famous face in the rh photo and the possibility of another one, so that raises the possibility that the third could be as well.

The head and shoulders behind my picture is that of John Laurie (Dad's Army), who was a local resident - he used to drive an open top sports car around the village. The other man I believe was possibly Wilfred Pickles but I'm not too sure who the lady was.
