31st Britannia Cubs Gold Arrow awards January 1977

AS we continue on our historical trip through the archives we come to 1977 and bring you these latest images.

This week we have found pictures of the Arcade Amateur Boxing Club lining up for a group picture in Ipswich, the Springfield Follies’ production of Cinderella, and members of SCOPE getting together for a Scottish evening at the Town Hall. We also found images of the new x-ray unit installed that year at Anglesea Road Hospital and 31st Britannia Cubs’ Gold Arrow awards.

Are you in any of these pictures? Drop us a line.
