This looks like an international of some kind with England players Nicky Jarvis, Denis Neale and Trevor Taylor – Jacques Secretin from France is there too.  Do you know the other players and the occasion?

I would imagine this is from the 1950s with Johnny Leach and Peggy Franks in the centre, both World Champions. Can anyone help identify the other players?

From an even earlier era with a young Michael Thornhill in the centre. All wearing England shirts so a very early junior match. Any information on the other two players and the occasion welcomed.

A splendid trophy held by David Tan of Middlesex presented by Albert Shipley. Who is the other player and what was the tournament?

Any information would be appreciated and can be sent to me on [email protected]
