Shame it did not ask who Marjorie Varley was, it could have answered Alan's question.

Someone told me this morning that Marjorie was a local Earby girl and that the Varleys had a butchers shop in Earby, does that sound right Moh?

I'm fairly sure that there was still a Varley's butchers when I was working in Earby, I started in 1970.

I've bumped one of John Hartley's articles on the site concerning the Varleys.

Now you mention it it rings a bell, but I can only remember the pork butchers on Water Street and the one one the opposite corner to the council offices (Ian will remember that one).

If anyone is still interested in Jack Miller Croft, we own his medals, log book and complete archive of letters, certificates and photographs. Some make sad reading. I can post a link to the complete material if anyone is still reading? Steve
