Hi Pauline. I don't recognise any of the four grown-ups. Were they teachers?

I recognise the names you posted. Most of them were in my class, but I did a bunk to Gidlow S.M. in '49.;o)
I did, however, manage two hols in the Southport Summer Camp, on the Esplanade. One with Gidlow Sec Mod & one with Wigan Sea Cadets...Those were the days!!

Hi Pauline. Thank goodness for that: thought that my memory had finally gone. Where did the lads go, I wonder? :o)
