Awards for Apprentice Tinsmiths.
The awards are based on the annual examination and class work results of the apprentices. Included in the assessment of the results are marks for practical work, conduct, punctuality, neatness, and condition of drawing instruments.
The awards were subscribed to by the Company and the Shop Stewards’ Committee. They consisted of money with which the students could buy tools, books, etc., of their own choice.
The prizewinners were :
1st Prize senior, Mike Egginton.
Runner-up, Jim Trevelyan.
1st Prize junior, David Yeomans.
Runner-up, Malcolm Layfield.
Mr Swindle examined some of the work and thanked all the personnel concerned for training our apprentice tinsmiths to such high standards.

UPDATE: Mike Egginton is pictured front row centre (third from left). Thanks to Martin Murphy for the info.
We assume the others on the front row are the winners too. Perhaps Jim Trevelyan, second left and flanked either end by the junior winners – but can you help which is which? ED
