Sorry to revive an old thread, but I have Denis 'Denny' Grogan (my Grandad) sitting beside me, and he is the son of Marjorie (on the left of the photo on here).

He reliably informs me that the woman on the right is called Daisy Clemo née Meek, his aunt, and that she lived in Beach Cottage, with her sons Rolly and daughter Clare, who now lives in BC Columbia, Canada. Her husband was called Bert and he was a Japanese POW having been taken in Hong Kong.

Good to see that Denny Grogan is still going strong. I remember him well. Great swimmer.
