Panto407 viewsNot sure what date but probably 1954 - I know it was February time as after the show I went swimming and it was freezing - thats me on the extreme right. The show was on Manoel Island in a small theatre attached to the Small Ships Training Centre. Cannot remember who put the show on but we did the Hornpipe. No names I am afraid although a Heather was there! 2 commentsrobinwilliams05/04/15 at 18:35robinwilliams: Sorry no idea re Theatre name - it was at the end ...
