Some of the Crispin regulars circa 1952.

Back left to right:- ?, - Holding, ?, Tommy Banks, ?, Bob Anglesey, John? Burgess

Front, left to right, --?, - Parry, Bob Gannon, - - ?, Jimmy Priest, with hands resting on shoulders of Arthur Burgess, --?, Bill Bennett (he worked at the Clarington Forge which was literally across the road).

The Crispin Arms was known as a "jerry" pub (sp?), which apparently referred to the fact that it sold only beer, it did not have a licence to sell spirits.

Could one of the men on the front row be Ernie Halliday from Lorne St.
