Barry Ray Year: 1953 Villages: HandcrossSlaugham scouts win marbles trophy
Further to picture #968 here are a couple of photographs from the same year showing the presentation of the Dawn White Shield to the 1st Slaugham Scout Troup for winning the junior marbles tournament.
The winning team comprised, from the left, Barry Ray, Tom Chamberlain (Capt), David Mitchell, and Ron Cosens.
The Large Version is a poor-quality photograph of the actual presentation. Presenting the prizes that year was John Blythe (1921-1993), an actor and writer who appeared in feature films and on television.
The shield was well made and quite heavy but Tom seems to be making light work of it. The team patiently await John Blythe to work out his appearance money on a yet-to-be-invented calculator!
