The man holding the trophy was a doctor who was a partner at the surgery in Sunderland Road.I was in the scouts in 1940. The tin shed in 5th street was opposite the then drill hall. THE DAY WAR WAS DECLARED the T.A. were called up and stood in rank in 5St. in the hot sun for 3 hours waiting for the bus,s to take them off to war.
