Arise, Sir Tommy

A real Bermondsey hero has today been awarded a knighthood by the Queen. 

Here is the young Tommy Steele signing autographs outside his house in the shadow of St James Church. The houses are long gone but the block of flats in Frean Street that replaces them, Hicks House, bears Tommy's (real) family name. 

Congratulations, Sir Tommy, from everyone in Bermondsey.
