David Tyler added (June 2014): "... Back row no 2 is actually my granddad Jack Duggan who chaired the Lydbrook old folks committee for some time. The lady on the right of chubby wadley (front row) I believe is Hilda Barnett nee Duggan, Jack Duggan's sister. The first bit of info is 100% the second is 80%".
