This is a photo from the Alan Ralphs Collection (now in my custody)of members of the FCSF some of who were founder members of FOPS.
Can anyone identify those not named especially the young boys?

Regards
George. :grinder:

What a task for George Palmley to get this monster, (which was on solid tyres) from Barry Island in Wales up to the North East without a mishap,and then restore it to playing condition. :clap2:
I think there is a good story in there somewhere

Hi George.

Thank for the 'plug'!

I noticed on that picture with the dancers that there is a public address speaker in front of the organ. Having heard the Marenghi at the Widnes Rally recently, I don't think the PA would have been for the organ!
