The chubby girl {she'll kill me for that} standing on the left of the photo, is my cousin Kathryn Lightfoot she later went to live in Aden for a few years and came back when she was about 16, my other cousin Jacqueline Dixon should be on her somewhere to but I can't find her.

Mr Tennant, I stumbled upon this picture and noticed that some people had mentioned a 'Mr Tony Tennant'. As far as i'm aware he may be my grandfather's Arthur's cousin. I am in the process of writing to tony regarding our family tree. If anyone is willing to share information please feel free to email. Cheers
