Market Lavington Cubs

Today we have a delightful photo of a very smart looking set of cub scouts believed to date from around 1950. We don’t know the occasion, but there seems to be a ratio of one adult for each cub, so one hopes it was a well organised affair.

We can name many of the people so let’s start with the adults from left to right.

Felix Travis, Percy Webb, Joan Ellis, Nan Pearce, Fran Francis, Jean Potter, not known and Don Baker.

The boys are, also from left to right, Brian Cook, not known, Roy Chapman, not known, Robin Tucker, Ray Pollard, Malcolm Little and Philip Francis.

You probably have enough to do in the run up to Christmas but if you happen to know any of the people in this photo that we haven’t identified then please spare a couple of minutes to let us know.

    I believe the lad second from the left is either Gordon or Michael Ellis.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
