    The Foster on the middle row is my dad, John Foster. Joe Faye went on to teach history at Sacred Heart School, Redcar. He taught me and remembered my dad.

    The Robson on the left front row is me, Frank Robson, the one on the opposite end is I am sure Graham Marlow.

  • Jack Ferguson

    My name is Jack Ferguson (dob 1950). I am working on my family tree and think the Joe Tyreman in long trousers would be my cousin if his mother was called Elizabeth Alice Ferguson who married Joe Tyreman (Snr). My father was John Ferguson (1903-1971) and one of his sisters was called Elizabeth Alice. I visited Loftus once as a small child but cannot remember meeting young Joe. He might have been away doing his national service. Does anyone know if he is still around and has a contact.
