That's me, second from the right in the second row. Started off with a drum but ended up with a triangle. However, I did get prime position - next to Marilyn Morris!

Hi David. I too had a triangle, always bought we were the poor relations who had triangles! I never did get over you taking Joan Baxter to Platt Bridge Palace when you were about 11. !!

Marilyn - Just one of many bad decisions I've made in my time!

I think that is Anne Taylor third from the left on the second row. Brian Robbo said that she grew up to be a real stunner! By that I think he meant that she worked at the abbatoir!

Robbo. Anne Taylor is first one on the left of the front row on HAGS form 4C photo from April 1962.

Dave I've realised after all these years why you were demoted from the drums to the triangle.It was because myself,Dave Pugh and our Alan were that good, we could knock a tune out of the drum using only one stick.Another 50yrs & you might get back on the drum.(all in good fun,never mind, you got to sit next to Marilyn.)Dave,please alter or fill in the ? if you can.To any other ex St Natsers on this photo, apologies for any mistakes I've made.Please correct me or insert names.'Robby'.

I'm pretty sure that the door behind the girl in the back row led to Miss Molyneux's office. (That must be why it gives me the shivers after all this time!)
