Pity the Wellfield photo's are not the right way up, they are very interesting and your comments about the pub are interesting also.The one that you have named as John Mulholland,I think is John Mulqueen, although I am not 100% sure.I have enjoyed a game of snooker with your father in the Legion from time to time,good to see he is still around and active.
