“Dylan had been studying the First and Second World War and had watched the film about the Dambusters with his mum and he wanted to go as one of the Dambusters.

“We were very proud of them all, everyone had gone to a lot of trouble and looked brilliant. We had kids coming in as David Beckham, members of the royal family and movie stars. It really showed the children’s personalities and what interests them."
