  • The girl between Pauline Gilbert and Pam Jackson is Mary Topps, sister to Peter and Jonathan Topps.

  • Maureen (nee Cooper) my old neighbour, thanks for reminding me about Mary Topps not being on the list, as she was the original person who compiled the first list of names and I added one and corrected one. And after all that we forgot a person on the front row far right Richard Sellars, he was on the first list but I left him off. So my appologies for the error. Please give Maureen my email address if she would like to make contact.
    Regards Michael Bradshaw
