 With reference to the pictures.

They were all taken when we were all bandboys. The one in the barrack room in the New Block is of Les Humphreys with the accordion, little chap is Peter Gorbet, then myself, Tony Gould and Ted Whealing. That was about 1956-57.

The one of us in the Barrack room once again (curtains drawn)
L-R Geoff Ettridge on washboard, Chas Pelling, Tony Ward on tea-chest bass and Ted Whealing at the end.
The other one is as follows.

This one was taken at the Globe Theatre at one of the Christmas concerts we did.
Tony Ward on bass, Ted Whealing John Collison on drums, Chas Pelling, Geoff Ettridge and myself on washboard. We all had make-up on, note my long painted sideboards.…
Hope that these details are of some use to you.

Take care
