Train Set at the the Summer Fete

Do you recall the joy of sitting atop the wall bars in the old Gym ?  Here is one from the Summer Fete during the 1980's - anyone have a name to the face?

Looks like Andrew Kerner. If it is Andrew, he was one of the Kerner family who were closely involved with the St Andrew's Coulsdon Scout Group in the 1970's and 1980's. Younger brother was Stuart (I think) but not sure whether he went to Purley. I also recall the Oxford brothers who were with the Scout Group at one time as well. Lots of OP's out there who will remember the Scout Group which unfortunately closed in 2007.

The Kerner brothers are Andrew and John.
