This photo shows the class of 1956 they are in their 1st year. The teacher is Mr Cocram, who i have no doubt lots of you chaps will remember. But can any of you name the lads.

Third row up, second one from the left is, I think, Keith Hurst, fourth from left is one of the Moore boys, but can't remember his first name. Recognize, faces, but forget names...

Bottom row, second from left, is I think, Kenneth Yates. Second row, first right, could be Sidney Byrom, although I thought he went to the Grammar School..It was a long time ago, not seen any of these people in over fifty years.

Hi Janet, Regarding the Moore boys only remember Geoff and John. It is Sydney Byron it was his elder brother Leonard who went to the grammer school.

Hi Janice, as I said it was a long time ago. There was a Kenneth Moore too, think he may be the one on the pic, they also had a daughter, Dawn, remember that, as it is the same name as one of my daughters. Sid Byrom was right, knew there was some connection to the Grammar school, your mind plays tricks as you get older, lol..
