  Outside the Royal (my dad's local). The cups are the RFL Challenge Trophy and the Lancashire Challenge Trophy - year I'm guessing 1951/52

Bill.Please excuse my ignorance but where is or was The Royal?.

Is The Royal in Hindley? The name Aldridge makes me think it may be; I remember someone from school called Aldridge. If so, I had my Wedding Reception there but the pub is now demolished. When it was pulled down, they found a gravestone in the cellar, as if someone had been buried there; I think it was that of a child.

Memory might be playing tricks, but I think I recognise a few of these blokes. Second from left at back looks like Charlie Priestley; the bloke in the middle with glasses looks like Jimmy Brennan, and the tall one on his left shoulder at the back could be Tony Easterway, who used to own Westhoughton dog track. My mum and dad used to go in the Royal in the fifties when we lived in Sandy Lane.
