I remember walking in the bottle green uniform ranks! I must be somewhere amongst that lot. I think they made us walk in uniform so that we could wear it all through the year. It wasn’t as exciting as wearing a frilly frock!
They were never short of a good crowd veronica all gone now ,we didnt have much round scholes but they all did a smart turn out
You’re right there Tom it was a big day in the Church calendar.. Scholes at every point was bursting, I think it was the skirrrl of the bag pipes, especially when the pipers did a bit of a dance. I think they saved themselves for coming through Scholes on our own territory. Whit Monday was a proud day.
I was an altar boy at St Marys and one year lead the procession up Greenough street alongside a lad called Terence Hyland. In 1951 we lived in a flat at 3 Greenough Street, Dr Johnsons surgery and felt proud walking past the front door.
I could be in this lot . I was living on Gaskell street in 1956/1957. Though I was very young then.
Remember Dr Johnson just below Reggie Sutton ,I lived in bolton st
