Stand to attention Sub O. Sherratt. This takes me back a bit Dave. Most of you on the picture have gone on to bigger and better things - where am I - still plinking away on my typewriter (or pc as we have now - now who's gone up in the world). Just a few I can't put a name to, but I'm still working on it. Good to remember.

The one knelt down in the middle of the front row is Steve Johnson, infamous for his squash playing. The lad third from the left on the back row is Peter Iddon, and I think the smaller lad to the left of Peter is Phil Benson (Benny)

Hope someone can help... Trying to get hold of Brian Hope as pictured here. I was in the Navy with him and have lost his contact details. We get Christmas cards from them every year but have no idea how to get back in contact with them. Does anyone know Brian, his wife Hilda or any of the kids?

Any help much appreciated!

Can someone confirm if a alan wilson was in the wigan fire brigade sometime in the 1970s, he was also stationed at widnes about 1972/3. Sure he came from wigan and would be in late 50s/early 60s
