Title: Marple Sea Rangers Photo
Post by: admin on January 23, 2017, 04:36:41 PM
Two images dropped off today by @badger have been uploaded to the Virtual Tour this afternoon: (

One of them is known to be from Marple Carnival in 1966 and features the Goyt Search and Rescue Team.


The other is more of a mystery, so here's a larger version for people to have a closer look at. The scan tells us it is SR'S Deido - Marple Sea Rangers and they are on a lorry owned by Marple Urban District Council. We think it's Marple Carnival in the 1960s and that the picture was taken on Arkwright Road. Does anyone out there know more about Marple Sea Rangers or recognise anyone in the photo?
