"Previous update wrong - No 1 is Joe Grant".

Joe was a short, stocky kind of guy, frequent visitor in my childhood home. I don't think this is him. Joe was never a trombone player. His instrument was the cornet, which he played excellently. He was usually the one playing the cornet solo for the judges outside the old council offices on Front Street.

He was already an adult when I knew him so I don't think he could become any taller.

No 1 (the same guy) is  named as Barron (Biff) Smith on a previous photo of the band taken outside the Brentforn Nylon Factory, under the sign.

@Canny lass - I will have to be more patient, looks like I jumped the gun. The photo was posted on the Facebook group, by John Dawson, yesterday so I add mine, with a few names. Loads of members commented but a couple kept contradicting each other and unfortunately I missed a few of the comments (on Facebook  it doesn't show all the comments once it reaches a certain number it only shows the subsequent comments and then you have to click on a link  - 'View nn more comments'. I have  asked then to check and I will update, when I think they have finished - my fault I was too hasty:(

No need to apologize. You do a fantastic job with these photos, which is greatly appreciated. It can't be easy!

I have wondered a couple of times if No 15 could be Joe Grant. He's holding a cornet, his  build is more like Joe's and he's also got glasses. During my time in Netherton Joe was the only band member I can remember with glasses.
