  • I am on this photograph, section 1, 5th row from the front, but my face is not visible, as I am turned slightly to my right, talking to my pal John Lee. Obviously not a very competent photographer, or he would have spotted me and made sure I was facing front!
    Photo taken just before we did “ O’ levels. I recognise Perrons on the end of our row, Dave Needle, Chris (?) Jenkins , A R King, Dave Smith, Pearson, Shooter, Topp, and Townsend. In picture 2, I spot Alan Woodward, who later played football professionally, and Ian Thomas, who I am still in touch with. I did have a copy of LOB’s History of the school, but it seems to have disappeared during one of our many house moves.
    Thanks for posting the pictures.
