Scouts, Cubs, Guides, and Brownies concert

With a cast of thousands the local Scouts, Cubs, Guides and Brownies entertained the residents of Handcross in the Parish Hall.

3 Margaret Briggs. 4 Sylvia O'Shea, 60 Cathy Rice.
I also think the year is 1954 or 1955. Or maybe 1953 for the coronation of QE2.

Sally, I have adjusted the list above to include these names. Thank you.
From the Troop Register I have listed the dates the scouts joined, usually "upgraded" from the cubs. The date of the photograph cannot be 1953 as David Knape, Norman Leppard, Barry Cox and I did not join the scouts until 1954.
David Knape joined the scouts on 12th December 1954, and Donald Wheeler did not transfer from the cubs to the scouts until 12th April 1955. It follows that the photograph would have been taken between these two dates and consequently I have reduced the above year from 1958 to 1955. Well done. 10/10
