Mrs Downes is pictured in the photograph in the front row on the left sitting on her mother’s lap, the late Gwen Mullenger.

Other faces she recognised in the photo were Doreen and Stephen Alger, sitting in the front row second from right, and Joyce and Paul Cole sitting in the back row second from right.
