Chadwell-St-Mary. Working men's club

Off to the races.

The annual trip to the races, usually on a Bill Watts coach. Never won much but a good time was had by all.

Those faces I can remember are.

Jimmy Edbrook. Jack Richards. Charlie Blake. Colin Edbrook. Ray Nottage. Dave Friend. Malcom Shaw. Pat McBride. Freddie Ryder. Bill Yates. Dave Drum. Another McBride?. Paddy A’Hern. Mr Edbrook. Graham Elder. Rod Elder. Dave Jevons. Alec McCarthy. and Bill Watts.

Perhaps someone can remember the others or correct if I have any wrong.

  • Can anyone tell what year this photo was taken reminds me of “The Jolly Boys” outing in the classic comedy series only falls and horses

  • I had the good fortune to play with the Tilbury boys briefly in 1962/3(I was 18).I think Eric King is sitting next to Alec McCarthy and Johnny Harrison is standing 3rd from the left. Ron is the other McBride.It would nice to know how any of the lads are.

    Happy Days

  • Hi: don’t know anything about the photo but it brought back memories of the Chadwell Working man’s club. My father-in-law Jim Brown ran  their Christmas club during the 40s and 50s and worked as a Tally Clerk (hope that’s the right name) at the docks until his retirement and my mother-in-Law Win worked at Batas  in Tilbury. They lived in Chadwell from 1930 until the late 60s. My sister-in-law had her wedding reception at the club in 1958.

    I also have a photo of my husband rowing the kids on the moat at Tilbury Fort. Taken in 1966 just before we left England.

  • Shirley, thanks for this memory. We’d love to have the photo of your husband rowing on the moat on our site.

  • Thanks Audrey, hopefully someone else comes up with more information. Gordon Richards the plumber who I worked with for some years in Tilbury docks, is he still with us.

    Also do you know Charlie Cole from Tilbury, my best man, I would like to know his whereabouts. Thank you.

  • I am Jack Richards wife Jack died in 1997 and David Javens died in 2001. Sorry can’t help with anyone else

    By Audrey Richards (16/05/2014)
  • As I have had no comments about this photo since November last year, is it because I am the only one still alive.

    Any information would be appreciated.
