‘Childhood Portrait’

“I was listening to Desert Island Discs just now and the actor Brian Cox said he always carries a photo of himself as a child. It reminds him of how the world seemed bright and full of endless possibilities. Looking at himself as he was then helped him through the dark times as well……anyway this is a photo of me ..he does look quite happy ..can people guess who it is?…what I don’t understand is that the date of the picture is June 1969 so why am I wearing a jersey with reindeer on?…Can you hear me mother?……”
