4th from the right middle row Roy Pitcher
4th from right next to back row ken sturgeon
Front row 1st right looks as if it could be my cousin, Jean Roughley.
is her maiden name Orrell if it is that's her
Anne, her name as a child was Roughley. On reflection, if the approximate date of 1950/51 for this shot is right, it couldn't have bee Jean as she would have been about 12/13 years old by then and in secondary school.
