We mentioned that this photo has a strong Caribbean Flavour  and we seem to have it well sorted except for the date it was taken.  We believe it was taken outside the Stourton Block at Prospect, and  Orson Daisley confirmed that it is the Police Cricket Team about to embark on a tour to the Bahamas. Orson also advises that Lenny Edwards (D/Sgt at the time) and Wilhelm “Willie” Bourne did not actually go on the tour although both were keen cricketers.  There were some great cricketers in this group and we would like to know how they all faired on their tour. 

Several guys have helped with all of the names which are posted under the photo.

We have one more follow-up question.  Can you tell us how many of these guys played in Cup Match and for which team?

 

Police Cricket Team headed for the Bahamas
Back row (l-r)  Orson Daisley, Bob Hinds, Barry Walkes, Adrian King, Junior Durrant, Roosevelt “Rosie” Maronie,
George Jackson, Ron Greenidge, Lenny Edwards, Willie Bourne.
Front row - Dave Purcell, Bob Anthony, Vendal Bridgeman, Braxton Stowe, Huron Vidal, Winston Esdaille.

Back row from L:- Orson Daisley, Bob Hinds, ?Barry Walkes?, Adrian King, Junior Durrant, Rosie Maronie, George Jackson, Ron Greenidge, Lenny Edwards, Willie Bourne. Front row from L:- Dave Purcell, Bob Anthony, Vendal Bridgeman, Braxton Stowe, Huron Vidal, Winston Esdaille.
And I'd go for Prospect as well, outside whichever was the Training School block: Stourton was the block nearer the road, and Henderson was the one up the hill.

Whats with the "?" Davie.

Quoting Orson Daisley:
Police Cricket team just before departure to the Bahamas on a tour. Wilhelm Bourne and COP Edwards (Det.Sgt) at the time were not included on the tour.


Well Orson that's you on the left, Roger Hinds, Barry Walkes, Adrian King, next two I know, just can't remember their names, George Jackson.....
Front ...Dave Purcell, forgot, Vendell Bridgeman , forgot, Huron 'Sasoon' Vidal, and Marlborough Esdaile.

Datz it folks.

And it looks like outside Training School at Prospect. I saw the "G" and that made me think.

A great day to all.
