Thanks for your reply,to the best of my knowledge the Bermondsey riders in the photograph are Left to Right
BERT FUNNELL--CHARLIE DALE--TOMMY JARRETT
R. DIGBY--PETE PRESTON--(CANNOT RECALL)
RONNIE JARRETT--(CANNOT RECALL).
the photo on the vets page has got the Bermondsey riders muddled up, the Tooting line up is correct.
Out of interest the photos numbered 3003-3019 on the vets web site were submitted by myself, number 3003-3005 were taken at the Verney track and 3007 was taken at the Cardinal Monarchs track which was close to the Old Kent Road/New Kent Road junction.
I now play golf(badly) one of the members of our club has a brother JOEY MENDETTA who was a Lynton rider, I have been trying for about 12 months to get him to obtain some photos for me without success. There are quite a few riders of our era still in circulation,in fact only today I was with two of them (Ron Johnson & Wally Dighton), This coming Thursday we have our Vets golf day at Darenth Valley and on the 23rd of this month a group of us will be meeting up for a ramble visiting some of the ancient waterside pubs along the Thames in the Wapping area, stopping for lunch at one of them, I am informed this is not a pub crawl but an educational and cultural visit to an historic part of London
