TitleMemory Lane - Underwoods Coaches
AbstractFollowing on with Underwoods story, we have two pictures taken during a White Hart Darts Club outing to Felixstowe - or Gt Yarmouth with an Underwoods coach. The pictures come courtesy of Jenny Gibbons who appears on both images.

The first picture shows the group - from the left - Ernie Hempstead, Hector Hewes, Doug Stoker and wife Barbara. The young man in dark jacket is Billy Mole, next him is Alfie Mole, Reg Jay, Cyril Green and Jenny Gibbons at the back. There are four people at the back I can't name. Next to Cyril is Gordon D'wit, then Bill Jenkins, Syd Milgate, Pinky Hewes, Ron D'wit, Brian Hart and Richard Procter. The young man in the light suit I dont recognise but the last four are John Gant, John Waring, Barry Weaver and Lucky Mayhew. The youngsters in the front are believed to members of the D'wit family.

In the second picture Jenny and Sylvia Brook pose at the front of the coach and to the right of the small group in the background the man in the dark glasses looks to be Jack Saye who would have been the driver. Time has not permitted me to get names of the others and I would like to hear from anyone who can name them - or correct any I have wrong.
