Hi Jenny how are you associated with the picture? I am in it and remember some of the boys but I am not able to remember that far back to give any names to the missing lads. David Carter.

Can help you out a little David the boy hiding behind Paul Simmons we think is Kenny Harris.

It could be him as it is about the only name I can remember that is not on the list.

Hi.  Just discovered this great site.  I am quite excited about it and would like to contribute!  I lived in Australia for 40 years and have been back in the UK for the last 9.

I have been moving a copy of this photo around the world for approximately 64 years or so, together with another one, taken in the playground, depicting a re-enactment of the Tolpuddle Martyrs judgement.

I can fill in a gap for you.  My name is David Goatcher and I am fourth from the left in the back row.  The year was probably 1955 but could be 1956.

My very best friends were Roger Walford, David Seal, and John Angel.  I would very much like to contact them again.  Do you have contact details for all that are identified?  How would I go about it?

Has there ever been any school or class reunions, or are there any planned?

(If you would like to contact David please post a comment and will put you in touch.   Editor)

I note that there were 7 boys named David  in the class!  Quite a high percentage!

I really look forward to hearing from you.

Very best regards, David.
