Loftus Sword Dancers

This is a good print of the Loftus Sword Dancers.  I’ve no idea of the date or the group members, or even where they were performing – any ideas would be welcome. Unfortunately the group disbanded quite a while ago. We are told by Ron Gittins that this could possibly be Darlington.

Back Row: Harry Cuthbert, John Hill , Brian Snowdon , William Morrish, Arthur Marshall. Front Row: Derek Cuthbert , ?? , Ron Gittins, Jim Fishlock.

Thanks to Eric Cowe, Eric Johnson, Ron Gittins (via Jean Gittins) and David Snowdon help with missing names.
