Fuzzens’s Blue Plaque

England / Europe

Fred Fuzzens’s Blue Plaque is on the wall of the Post Office in Peascod Street. It commemorates Fred Fuzzens (1921-1995), a Windsor postman, who was passionate about local history and contributed many stories of Windsor past to Windlesora, the magazine of the Windsor Local History Group. Of him it was said: ‘He strove for a perfect Windsor.’ He much disliked Ward Royal (1969) and was astounded when it won a medal and diploma from the Ministry of Housing and Local Government. His father, Fred Fuzzens, won the Military Medal in May 1915, during World War I, for staying at his post during a gas attack. He served with the Labour Party, undertaking Trade Union work, became a Councillor and Alderman, and the first labour Mayor of Windsor in 1947, during the year of Windsor’s worst flooding in recent times. Fred was born at 21 Albert Street. In an early Saturday job he pushed a Tate and Lyle wooden sugar box on two pram wheels to the gasworks. He was at school in Windsor, and a choirboy at All Saints, Frances Road. As a boy, he spent his spare time in the Great Park, the Castle and at the riverside. Fred Fuzzens was also head of the Windsor Branch of the British Legion.
