Image of the Week: Girl Pipers on Dagenham Heathway (1948)


Girl Pipers march on Dagenham Heathway in 1948

This photograph was kindly donated to the archive this week by a relative of Grace Simmonds, who was a member of the Dagenham Girl Pipers from 1937 to 1943. It shows the famous band marching on Dagenham Heathway in 1948. Do you recognise any of the girls in the band? Or perhaps you remember the Gas Light and Coke Company Shop?
