Comments by Keith Beckett, 7th January 2018  
Is that the Wigan Warriors owner 4th from right back row?

Comments by irene roberts, 7th January 2018  
I think all the ladies are very attractive and very feminine and am a bit puzzled by Johnny's "pie shop" comment on the lady sitting on the floor; she isn't at all "big" and is very pretty. Have I misunderstood his meaning?

Comments by Veronica, 7th January 2018  
Keith that's correct.

Comments by Veronica, 7th January 2018  
Irene that lady Margaret Stockley organised the re-union and died soon after. RIP. She was a good swimmer and she is on the group photo with the shield on. Another lady in the green coat passed away last Christmas RIP Maureen. This photo was taken on arrival in St Pat's club before everyone else had arrived. There was a really good turn out.

Are you on here, Veronica? I can't see you! xx.

Comments by Veronica, 8th January 2018  
I joined the Red Coats at Butlins Irene!

Comments by Scholes Malc, 8th January 2018  
second right back row - that Jeff Holland?

Comments by Maureen, 8th January 2018  
Irene,Veronica is the one in red..cue for a song.

Comments by Veronica, 8th January 2018  
That is Jeff Holland I seem to remember he travelled from America ( I think) to come to the re-union.

Comments by irene roberts, 8th January 2018  
I hadn't realised that was you, Veronica. Hi-de-hi! xx.

Comments by Scholes Malc, 8th January 2018  
thanks Veronica - Jeff was my cousin - he died in the US a couple of years ago - sadly missed by his family & friends

Comments by irene roberts, 8th January 2018  
Hi-de-hi, Veronica! x.

Comments by t, 8th January 2018  
is that bernard swift , middle front row ?

Comments by Veronica, 8th January 2018  
Thats sad to hear Malc I also worked with his mother Margaret when I left school at John Whites sewing. That is Bernard Swift on the front.

I played darts with Jeff in the Black Horse ( now the Lychgate ) in the late 70's. He was a lovely chap with no airs and graces despite him being quite high up at Pilkingtons. I remember on one occasion we were playing golf at Haigh Hall and Jeff, who had just recieved a brand new top of the range Vauxhall Carlton company car said if I beat him on the round I could drive the car back to Standish. I just pipped him and true to his word, he gave me the keys. I remember he emigrated with his job when he got another promotion. I was unaware and saddened to learn he'd passed. RIP Jeff.

Comments by Robert Howe, 8th January 2018  
Is that Brian Baxter, back row, third from the right?

Comments by Veronica, 8th January 2018  
That is Brian Baxter who used to live in McCormack St. I remembered him when I saw him but some of them I didn't recognise.

Comments by Telly Nelly, 8th January 2018  
Ian Beale off Eastenders. Front row second left

Comments by Frank, 8th January 2018  
I bet there's a barrel full of laughs with that lot.
Knees up ????

Comments by Veronica, 9th January 2018  
Well we didn't roll out the barrel, stand on our heads for the photo,or perform cartwheels,but we certainly had a very enjoyable and memorable evening. I'm sure we all agreed on that,each and everyone of us.

Comments by t, 9th January 2018  
disregard the comment from frank, i bet he is a bundle of laughs, always one who has to make a crass comment. i'm sure veronica you had a beltin night meeting up with old
friends and swapping memories.

Comments by Frank, 9th January 2018  
At least I have the guts to say my name.
who ever you are!

Comments by Veronica, 9th January 2018  
We certainly did T -I'd like to think there was another re-union booked in the future.

Comments by t, 9th January 2018  
know a couple of those veronica,was at john fisher when i was there.

Comments by Veronica, 9th January 2018  
I don't mind saying T the years rolled away - they were a great bunch to meet up with. When you consider one came over from America and another came from Ireland just to be there - speaks volumes! It's a pity that not every one is on the photo who did turn up.

Comments by WN1 Standisher, 11th January 2018  
It would be nice to see a copy of the b/w photo the lady at the front is holding uploaded on here if anyone has access to it. Just a thought

Comments by Veronica, 11th January 2018  
Standisher there are two group photos under St Patrick's Junior Mixed School Items 5255 and 5256. Mr McDermott's class. I'm on the 5256 at the end of the first row left.

Comments by WN1 Standisher, 11th January 2018  
Is that Peter Birkett on photo 5256, 3rd row, 4 in from the right Veronica ?

Comments by Veronica, 11th January 2018  
No it's not Standisher it's Terry Sedgwick who is on the end right middle row on the re-union photo.. I don't know anyone of the name you are enquiring about. I believe Terry has passed away RIP.

Comments by WN1 Standisher, 11th January 2018  
Sorry to hear about Terry Veronica. He's got the look of a lad I used to work with.
