Re D960

Good to see ‘Otter’ Harry King, Don Wollam, Dennis Ostick and Jean Rue Arkala’s.
Kim is not present neither Jim? Fawcett. I suspect this was taken late 59. My finial camp was with the 10th, to Hardanger Fyord in Norway in 60 or 61 as a senior scout. Great fun. Most of this group of older scouts Tetly Boys, and more I cannot recall the names of, except Gerrald Harrison, maybe went on the Norwegian Adventure with Don Wollam and Mr Teley, and I believe Otter may have been their.
The gent in the plain suite was our sponsor the Local Henshaw Joiner and Builder Syd Dennison.

I believe the gentleman in the suit is actually Syd’s son Thomas. In the late 50’s Syd would have been close to 80 years old, he died in 1966 at the age of 86. Additionally, I believe it is my father Kenneth Ostick not Denis.

This is where I got married in 1952, and I sat out and did a drawing from this very angle in the late 60’s early 70’s and gave it to a Mrs Corker who lived in the cottages to the left of the church at that time.
