Wow! Normans hanging pretty cool there for the 50s. Nonchalantly posing with hands in pocket, cool jacket. Must have been the fashion icon of the school. And is that Jimmy Cheatham behind him. Could it be Joe Green with the glasses and behind him with the black curls, Rob Ockleshaw. Maybe that’s Freddy Laithwaite right up there on the right.
And I think I recall a lad with red wavy hair, Clifford Housely. Never know how I recall that name.
And no Cliff Higham wow! He was probably up to mischief in the girls yard anyway.

Is the lad in the middle with the cap Alan Addlington? In front of him - almost burried - little Maurice Cheers.

Comment by: Dosser on 8th December 2010 at 18:51

Naw Jas ,, thats not Clii. He's too handsome to be Cliff. That lloks a bit like Joe Hill to the left of Norman Taylor but its probably not.
