Shown outside St Catharine's Infant and Junior School in Schoefield Lane I think in 1967. In the photo front right on side drum is Alan Ashcroft, officers Brian Perry and Roy Brookes, solo buglers at rear, John Hankin (right) and Harold Mercer (left). If anyone can put names to the others it would be great.

Thanks for posting - it really brings back the memories I have, some 60 years later, of that area, when I attended St. Catharines.

Hi Harold, how are you keeping? Pauline and I see Pauline (Cheers) in town occasionally and she tells me she sees you from time to time. It would be nice to keep in touch so if you wish send me an email. I don't think the drummer is Ronald MacDonald. Do you see anyone else from our time apart from Ronald Davies?
