Natalie, I was useless to be honest! My Uncle played for them (and is in that photo too) so he asked me just to fill the numbers; I enjoyed it though.

That link I put in my first message should take you to the page and scroll through then. Otherwise you could pm "M" who posted the pictures and she might be able to send you a better copy (or post one on your thread there) as she has the book.

[/quote.    Green castle suffered a lot.The blitz in the Second World War.There were around 80 deaths.After that a lot of houses on the main road were knocked down for no apparent reason,there were more knocked down because of the motorway.The same thing happened to whitewell village,which was completely destroyed because of the new road.I was born in whitewell village.Both Greencastle and whitewell suffered because people in high places were not interested in the common man.Thanks a lot for the photographs,I like them a lot.
