Remembrance Parade – 1950s

Brandon Remembrance Parade

Brandon Remembrance Parade

I was handed a photograph of a Remembrance Parade from just after the war and am not sure of the date of it, but it is after the war because some of the men involved did serve overseas, but it appears to be not too long afterwards. It is obvious that it would be sometime within a 10 year period from November 1945 to mid-1950s.

I would appreciate any assistance in identifying anyone from the photo – either those in the Parade or those watching the event and to help with this I have reproduced the image with numbers next to the person.

Can you identify anyone from this Remembrance Parade from the 40s or 50s?

The image was taken along the London Road, from a window possibly from what used to be G&I Autoparts, but is now the Starfish chip shop (Oct, 2013).

List of names – Please email me a number and name if you spot someone here who you think you might know.
