"The picture was taken on the bandstand in Bathurst Park, and we think the year was 1964 but we are not 100% sure, it could be a year either way".

The Scout Leaders standing left to right are Michael Butcher, Ron Day, Tony Butcher. The lady I can't recall then the suited man is Sid Nunn.

David Essex added: "... Row 4 second from left is Andrew Woodhead and Row 3, holding the standard, is his brother Mark, who both lived in Victoria Road, Lydney. I think this is a year or two earlier than 1964 (the year I left LGS), as I believe Tony Butcher joined the Royal Navy well before then, though I'm not sure. I was a Sea Scout and remember Ron Day with great affection. Great to see David Parker, who I was at the Church School with".

Michael Lewis added (February 2021): "Miss Jones stood next to Sid Nunn was also our teacher in primary school and later married Maurice Thomas also one of our teachers, I remember them courting in the break times".

Thanks also to Andy Wyman, Brian Reece and to Mike Edge who added (July 2014) "... both were in my class at Lydney Junior School. The lady was our Teacher at school, though I don't remember her name. She moved at the end of that summer, so it would be 1963".
