Chris Thatcher writes: "Some of the names are there, despite people being unidentifiable. Paul Wrench and I are sitting at the back - he introduced me to the French horn and played alongside. Trevor Corless played the trumpet, and it looks as if Trevor Wilson was on the timps. Vic Laird is just behind Mr Baker's arm on the violin. Some from the first picture are still there in the second, posed photo (1966), so we all hung in there. It was quite an experience for me starting to play in the orchestra after just a few weeks getting to know the instrument. In all, orchestra was fun and it was a pity it wasn't so popular as the choir, but the reasons are fairly obvious if it's about socialising. "
