Fancy Dress 


Eric Heeley is the young soldier bottom left, but do you recognise anyone else? Possibly Hilltop estate children. 


Thanks to Eric Heeley who now lives in Australia for the following:

Left of me in the photo is Jimmy Austin (footballer) then Kathleen Corcoran (Hawaiian), Pauline Scott ??

(gypsy) , ?,  (bride), Lorna White (doll in a box), Hilary Newton (bandage on head), Barry White (air raid warden ?) and Neil White (coal miner). I think the older lady at the back with the nun's headgear was Freda Wilkinson. The Chap at top right of photo was not in fancy dress, he was the mayor's chauffeur !!.

The Mayor & his wife were also not in fancy dress
