1950s Boys Brigade: nearly all faces indentified
« Reply #1 on: January 03, 2016, 04:19:51 PM »
In June 2015 some photo relating to Marple Boys Brigade from c1955 were added to the Virtual Tour. They included two images of the Boys Brigade PT Teams but at the time we only knew the identity of Leslie Atkinson because the photos were provided by his sister Hilary. Hilary has put a lot of effort into finding out who the others were and she's done extremely well. There are only a few unknown now. It's interested to learn that one of them is the late great Jack Turnbull, who passed away just a couple of months ago. Jack looks quite a bit older than the other boys, so maybe he was a coach for the team?

Back: Jimmy Turnbull, Peter Brown, Jack Turnbull, Dave Ingham, Peter Sherratt.
Middle: John Frost, Bob Ingham, David Wood, Unknown.
Front: Derek Cropper, Leslie Atkinson, David Cropper, Unknown.

Back: David Bannister, Mick Close, Peter Sherratt, Jimmy Turnbull, Eddie Edwards.
Middle: Unknown, John Frost, Derek Cropper, David Cropper.
Front: Raymond Berry, Stuart Lyndsey, Leslie Atkinson, Unknown.

Can you help fill those last few gaps?
