I recognise Malcom Birkett, far left with trombone and Ellis Collier far right with guitar.

Third from the left - Norman Skellon?

Next to Ellis Collier, Bill Whelan, and then to my right Fred Archer, now in Windsor.

Yes, Frank is right, that's me third from the left 50 years ago. Amazing! That was my last year at Thomas Linacre. I went on to Teachers' college at Bath, and then to Australia in 1969 and have been there since. Now 68 years old. Would love to hear from Frank.
