This action-packed photograph, sent in by David Sale, shows contestants at the annual sports day on the Nevill estate in Lewes in 1953. If Rouser remembers right, one of the organisers was Maurice Breese, who also had a lot to to with the local cycle proficiency test.

David lists some of the sports day participants as Allan Brown, John Downey, Neil Godden, Melvin Piper, David Marchent, Eileen Seymour, Jenny Peacock, Allen Underhill, Terrance Funnel, Sammy Hammond, Stan Brown, Glen Bolton, Jillian Euston, Anthia Day, Susan Sale, Keith Pratt and Peter or Brian Rattan.

Added David: ‘If anybody reading this can put some name to others, or correct any that might be wrong, I would be grateful.’
