The Lancaster Mystery

I also found this old photo of a Lancaster band sometime in the 1950s. The clarinet/sax player with all the hair is me and on piano is Ronnie Blamier. Mick Unthank, in the back, appears to be playing drums? I wonder if any of your readers can identify the others. As I approach 75 my memory isn't what it used to be.

I recognise one of the guys on's the trumpet player, whose name was Brian Myers. He was quite good: Armstrong-influenced, as I remember, but I think he left the district before making much of an impact. I met him a few times, but never heard him play with a band - even the one pictured. Incidentally, Ray Briggs and Ronnie French are still around, and playing.
