My sisters are in the picture

Even though I was only either four or five years old at the time, I recognised two of the faces on last week’s 1953 Ernest Bailey Grammar School 5th form picture –my twin sisters Sheila and Shirlie Smith.

Despite playing cricket for several years with Dave, the husband of Sheila Ramsden, who supplied you with the picture, I did not know until I read the Memory Lane article, that she had been in the same class as my sisters.

They must have been two of the “Darley Dale brigade” she mentioned!
