Third row, third from the left could be Carl Sherry. I am his cousin and we lived at 271 Gidlow Lane with my granny. Brian Farnworth, Ian McKenzie, the Partington brothers, I remember them well. I had already left and was working at the Peppermill brass foundry. I now live in Melbourne, Australia. I returned to Wigan to attend Carl Sherry's funeral and remember most of those faces at the gathering.
