The unknown cadet between myself and CWO Whitehouse is Peter Eaton, the unknown at the top next to the wedding couple is Jeff Southgate and the unknown next to CPL Richardson is Paddy Green. I can't remember the others but they will come to me later.

The base drummer's name is Eaton and the Sgt over on the right is Green. My memory is a little slow but it gets there in the end. The church of course is at the bottom of Church Hill, Nehaven.

Thats me with the somewhat long hair third on the left, the hair was my eventual cause of leaving the cadets, the reason stated in my record of service was "he wishes to retain his present hairstyle". Great times were had in those days and watch out everyone as I still have all the photographs from the annual camps at the various RAF stations.

The trumpeter just to the right of the bride is James Martin. Went to school with him. He did ATC, I did Sea Cadets, sometimes a source of 'friction'.
