Barry Haines appears here on the left wearing his ABC Picture Club Minors coronation cap.

He recalls that the girl next to him at special tea was a girl with the surname Weston. Others around the table included Ray Martin, Terry Weston, Sally Weston, and a boy and girl named Lovelace with their mother behind them.

He says: ‘It was quite a spread in those austere times. They did us proud.’
