The small guy at the front of the group photo is Raymond Bradley who was involved with the Netherton Colliery Band. Directly behind him looks like John Carr.
Ted Stewart pictured in the last photo at The Grapes was a great friend of our family (Leonard's) I remember him winning the pools many moons ago. Seem to recall it was around £11,000 which was a fortune at the time. He unfortunately lost his young son in a tragic accident when he drowned near Choppington Brick Yard. I used to see him in the last Top Club along with Jimmy Cunningham who ran the Institute at Netherton. Sadly neither with us any more.
