THE ABOVE picture shows Joyce Ballinger (nee True) with drum majorettes in the BTH Rag Week procession of 1956.

Joyce is pictured centre in the top row. She said: “I was born in Rugby and lived there until my marriage in 1962, moving to Leicester for approximately two years and then to Stroud, Gloucestershire.

“I also worked at the BTH and was involved in several of the Rag weeks, so when a friend sent me a cutting of your paper about the Rag I hunted out some old photographs of when I was a drum majorette in the procession. The year, I think, was 1956.”
