Anyone come from Grimesthorpe? (Part 2)

Recommended Posts

Can any former Grimesthorpe BB members identify anyone from this 21st and 53rd BB Camp at Sheringham about 1962. Come on TFishcake and Hawkshead Boy you are pictured on here!

Hiya Walt, Seen a few faces some i can't put names to them

but 2nd row up 4th one on is John Howe next to him is Harry but can't

remember secone name. 7th on is Les Cudsworth and 9th on is

Charlie Wise. Hope your well. Brian.

 

Hi Brian, You are right about Les but I don't think that is Charlie Wise. Amy Wise is not there either & I am sure that if one went, the other would too as other officers have taken wives.

Best wishes, John

Hi Johnpm,

I think the officer sat on the left side of Les Cusworth is Philip Thoday from the 23rd Beck Road Co.

Hi Clown, Would Phillip Thoday be dad of Michael (I think) Thoday who I remember was similar age to me?

Do you mean Mick Thoday, and no its not him. Its Mr Stephenson an officer at 21st Boys Brigade Company . At the time he lived on Birdwell Road in Grimesthorpe.
