To the left of Billy Hooton is Stephen Green. To the right of Billy Hooton is Alan Anders. To his right and slightly forward is Alan Fairhurst. Below Alan Fairhurst and to the right is Alan Berry. Phillip Bentham is the 7th "nose" from the left. First person on the left squatting is John Edwards. If this trip was to " The Old Battery " on the cliff top above Peel, I went on that trip.

I seem to remember we went to the IOM 3 times twice at the old Battery and once on Peel front in 2 B&Bs on the 1st trip
the 1st time at the old Battery we were with a school from Burtonwood and one of the trips cost £5 all in and about £3 spends, what would it cost now I wonder.
