Thanks to all who replied, so quickly, to my request. The ringers of 2 and 5
are now deceased. I know not of the whereabouts of the tenor ringer Geoffrey
E White. He was in the R A F doing his National Service at the time,
stationed at R A F Yatesbury; his home was in East Anglia. I wonder if he
still rings? Anyone know?

Dennis Powney.
