Stockton’s St Paul’s Church Boy Scouts going to camp on the back of one of Devereux trucks to Pateley Bridge, Saturday 30 July, 1955.
My name is Keith James I am 68 years young, went to Newham Grange Secondary Modern School in the 1950’s and worked at Head Wrightson’s Steel Foundry. I joined the Royal Navy in 1961 and served 22 years. I am now retired and live on the south coast in Fareham, Hampshire. My sister Mrs Pamela Bullock nee James still lives in Stockton. With regard to the pictures I am 2nd in the line, the front lad was called Ian ?? and the 7th lad called Camble Claud Bosenquet. The Devereux truck was possibly driven by Mr Devereux himself. I have been in touch with the Devereux Family a few years ago and they showed extreme kindness to me and my wife Margaret.
