All Saints Church choir pictured Easter, 1945.


A former Exmouth choir boy has provided a great memory of Easter from 70 years ago.

The photograph on this page was taken of the choir at All Saints Church at Easter 1945.

One of those pictured is Michael Board, now 83, who submitted the photo to the Journal.

He says, of those pictured, he would be particularly interested in hearing from Christopher Everest or Eddie Goreham, but suspects the photo will bring back memories for many, and many more will recognise their father or grandfather.

The list of those pictured is as follows: Back right: H Howarth, J Saturley, B Saturley; Back row: C Kendall, C Selby, P Dorman, E Goreham, B Marshall, R Dent, D Terry, R England, C Everest, M Board, A Cooper, P Piesse, J Cook, E Roach, Baines, B Mensforth; Middle row: R Dodd, L Noad, K Jones, J Pike, D Hulse, B Jelfs, E Davis, D Pratt, F Bastin, W Graves; Bottom row: G Skinner, J Pratt, D Selby, C Williams, AJ Marcom, the Reverend WJK Harris, the Reverend EC Long, A Carter, G Skelton, D Pratt, J Fairchild; Front: R Stradling, P Tolman.
