Here are the list of names Bob gave :-
Bethel Church Walking Day, 1953.
Back row (L-R): Gordon Housley, Bob Aspey, Ian Rayner, John Liptrot, Ken Parkinson, Abel Jones, Derek Blackledge, Brian Yates, Brian Winnard, Les Charnock, Maurice Monk.
Front row (L-R): Eric Yates, Arnold Gore, Harry Prescott, Keith Platt, Alan Bishop.
The trilby, usual headgear, for that generation, at this specific period of time.
I enjoyed enhancing the above photo but only after reading the names that Bob listed on the original submission did I see the name Abel Jones. Jones of course very common, Abel not so.
It just happens that I have a few Abel Jones's on my mother's family history side, (Earlestown, Golborne etc.,).After some early research, which I will have to check, but it looks as if this Abel Jones might well be a 3rd cousin.
Extremely satisfying from a family research point of view.
This is lovely to see, so many young men ready to join the walk.I wonder how many would join in today?
