Loftus Wolf Cubs (1957/8)

Loftus Wolf Cubs (1957/8)

Originally posted this image was listed as Loftus Scouts, but we now know they were Wolf Cubs! This following a comment by Malcolm Covell: “Firstly they aren’t Scouts they are Cubs. I’m 1st left on back row and I was only about 8 or 9 at the time, next to me is Brian Lightfoot ( 2 years younger). Next to him is my brother Dennis Covell (as Sixer = two stripes), he would be about 10; he was born 1947, so it puts the photograph at 1957/58. I can vaguely remember this photo being taken I think there was some sort of big Jamboree that year. Michael Jones is in front of me to the left.”

Back row: Malcolm Covell, Brian Lightfoot, Dennis Covell, ?? , ?? , ?? , ?? .

Bowls Club, Carlin How

Another photograph from the jubilee brochure of Carlin How Working  Men’s Club, this time taken on the bowling green. We asked: “We are sure you will be able to tell us the names of some of the men there?” Derick Pearson told us: “First left is Norman Robinson, Dennis Preston, Jack Verrill; kneeling Mr Carveth and Jack Dredge., Standing Jim Nicholson. Group on right: first left standing is Bill Harrison (nicknamed Mellon or Lemon); far right Mr Husband. Mrs Bob Butterworth and ? Blenkey sat on seat.”

Thanks to Derick Pearson for names update.

Boy Scout Jamboree – or just a big Pow Wow?

Loftus Scouts – and yes it is Loftus Cricket Club! – known to have been taken in the late 1930’s, but what was the occasion? We have been given two names by Eric Johnson, but can anybody name any more or assist with any information?
