I found the above pic. in a second hand book some years ago. A handwritten note on the reverse side says 'Wigan G.S., Yugoslavia'.
No further info. I'm afraid.

I would say it is maybe the sixties as I think the guy on the back is Bernard Stock who used to teach there. He only started around 1963.

I could me lining myself up for a backhander but I think the person on the extreme right on the back row is Tommy Martindale of St. Judes fame.

Thanks Broady, but we couldn't afford to buy a camera. These lads are older than me.
