Another name for the list is my dad (who found the picture and told me about it, saying that it brought back so many memories, and he rattled off a whole load of names including the teacher, Mr Latham!)
He's Roy Picton, 3rd row, 4th one from the right.

I remember this photo very well. A magic time in our lives. All about to step out into the real world.
