Hello Ian, has soon as I saw the photo I said oh there's Mr Jones, I lived in the same street on Marsh Green, a long, long time ago now, 1960's! The man stood next to him also looks familiar.

The person on the right of the front row also lived in Marsh green, Billy Maloney.

Unfortunately my dad, Les Jones passed away at the very early age of 59.
