Two more photographs from the Costs Department.
Thanks again to Annemarie Mabbs for submitting them. They are two photographs taken very close to each other show the presentation for Annemarie, she says,
“I was emigrating. I was determined not to cry. They even made a huge wall poster with surfing photos etc and bought me luggage.”
The first photo (above) the names are: L to R
Brian Skelcher (Office supervisor)
Addition: Geoff Smith (I am on the front row, second from the right. I am wearing the waistcoat, standing next to Sue Le Strange).
Can you help with any other names? Please get in touch

UPDATE: In the photograph accompanying the Cost Office Part 2 article on the website (Oh! What memories that brought back!) I think I can identify one person not already named, the gentleman 6th from the right, just behind Susan Lestrange, we used to call Harry. I think his surname may have been Gordon, or possibly Bennett.

UPDATE 2: Me again, standing next to Sue Le Strange. However on this photo I can see John Bowerman standing at the back directly behind me. I can’t remember Gordon’s surname but he was known as Harry (I think), and travelled in from Studley daily, I believe. Geoff Smith
