Any news on where these could be all Painters and Decs, Roy Morrison, Tony Thomas and Brother Paul, Mick Annel, Roy’s mate Brian ? , Alan ? Who was serving his time with us, most lived around the Marsh Lane area of Bootle and worked for the old Bootle Council well before it became Sefton. Old timers Billy Bibby, Don Radley, Matt Gibbons, George Boughey, Jack Brimage, Charlie Armstrong, Frank Prentice list is endless of mates that have passed away and not forgetting Dave Smith who kept me entertained for many a year when we left the Council and worked for Chattertons until I left for Integral and pastures new.

Smashing photo of Roy and Tony Bob. I'll PM you.
"awlfryn" - Roy used to drink in the Grapes Thornton, don't know if he still does but his son (also Roy Morrison) is on face book and is a pal of Bernie R (on here).

Hi Bobby, is it Billy Bibby with Johnny ? Remember John’s little gang, Billy Scraggs, Hughie Dawson and Jack Conklin. Most of them drank in the Jollies, went to school with John’s Son.
More photos, meant to tell you Dave Smith passed away if you didn’t know
