Dursley Pigeon Racing

This photograph was taken at the annual show of the Dursley Pigeon Racing Club about 1966/68. The only name I know is
the left hand person at the table, Eric Organ. The show took place in Mawdsley's canteen.

Just signed up after seeing this photograph.
The person on the far right, with hands in front, looks like my granddad David Dolbear. It looks remarkably like him, I know he was involved with Pigeon Racing and he used to have a photograph at an event with them flying away. He unfortunately passed away a little over a year ago, but his younger brother and his wife are still alive and living in Dursley, so they may recognise them.

Thanks for that Chris. If you manage to get confirmation that it's him that would be great.

Hello Ken
I came across this photo during a search for an Eric Organ in Dursley, Eric Organ was my Grandfather. I only met him a few times in his later years, when I was about 14 years old. We're you related please?

Hi Ian
No I was not related, but was a workmate at Mawdsley's. I took some photos for for Eric, including several at the Pigeon club.
