Image 18 The two girls in the triangle are Joyce Drewell (my Mother) on the left and her sister, Norma Drewell on the right. The photo The Sporting Life – looks like my Grandfather Jack Swain forth from the left in the middle row. Good to see the photo of Dad (Vic) with the Junior Imperial League float. I have not heard of the league I will have to look it up!

Best wishes
