- My name is John White, while browsing thru U.K. sites I found yours and reminded me of a friend from Gosport of many years ago. While in the U.S. Military in the late 1950's some friends and I met some young ladies that worked in the summer theatre touring the U.K. I became friends with a lady named Doris Hall we stayed in touch but lost contact over the years. I know that's not her name now and she most likely has grand children but at the end of each season she would go home to Gosport where her mother lived. I'd just like to find out if she is still alive and doing well. list my email address, thank you. JWhite3564@aol.com
