    I made a mistake. To Ron Bikerdike’s left is ? Wedgewood, can’t recall who is to his left but next to dave graham is on of the Lumas brother Peter or David they were twins so your guess is a good as mine.

    I am afraid I am not in this photograph, I was never a Cub Scout. I believe someone has mistaken me for Andrew Tabner (front row, 3rd from the right)? In the 3rd row, the Scout on the left of the young lad in the brown top is my brother Guy and on his left is Ray Barnes I believe. Finally, the young Cub in the front row, with all the badges, is Tony Biddlestone’s son, sadly unable to remember his name.

    Kind Regards
