Bernard, Kevin Wall is my cousin. He used to live in Hindley Green up until a few years ago when he and his wife Maureen moved to Southport.

Hello Roland. Sorry I called you Bernard before. I don't know Kevin's other cousins. They must be on his mother's side (Aunty Ethel).

Bill, I have an original photo with the names written on the back,so I think we can now solve the mystery of the missing names. Back row 1st left,Joe Bannister,3rd from right Terry Wilson. Middle row 2nd left Sid Green. Front row 1st left John Walsh, 2nd left Gerald Leyland. I think that's all of the queries. I knew them all well,except for Sid Green,who unfortunately I just don't remember at all.
