Notes / History These young men were amongst the musicians taking part in a talent competition organised by the
St. Helier Jazz Group, at the
British Legion Hall, Newminster Road, Morden.

Pictured here are Roy Pursey, Victor Spinks, Alan Edward Rust and
Frank Tomes.

This era witnessed the rise of skiffle music and rock ‘n roll – one wonders whether these youngsters progressed any further with their music.
