Thanks also to David Soar, John George and Derek Donaldson.
Thanks also to Ken Creed whose uncle Jack Davies (Row 1, No 2) was able to supply many of the names.
The sign behind the players says: "Edison Swan Electric Company Limited", so the photo looks to have been taken on the premises at the factory at Lower Lydbrook.
Members of The Ross and District League 1952/53.
