Tramps' Ball in the Handcross Parish Hall

The cream of Handcross society descend on the Parish Hall to celebrate something, but nobody can quite remember due to the bottles of Manns Brown Ale consumed.
In fact, it must be a Tramps’ Ball as that was the sort of quality event enjoyed in the village in the 1960s.
The Large Version is a numbered copy, from which I can name fewer than a half. Surely someone can add more names.
