Where are they now?  Jackie Nightingale lives in South Green, Billericay, her brother David lives in Thailand, married to a local girl, hence living where he does.

To whom it may concern it is chrismas day 2013 and to my best belief no 23 in the picture above is my brother Norman Clifford Muncey he has an older brother John Gorden Muncey.

I also remember several of the names and faces in the photo

Checked with Fred Penson who says Michael Lawrence is definitely Number 24 in Picture 2 and Owen Jones is Number 24 in picture number 1, (he was friends with Owen and wife).

Could 14 be a girl called Carol Little?

By Andrea
On 06/04/2012

Jackie and Janet Nightingale is the same person - she didn't mind being called either. Her older sister was Marilyn and her brother was David. Re number 6, is that the Harsent girl? And number 23, could that be a lad called Gordon Muncey?

Gloria; not sure about that being Rosa - she had very light blonde, longer hair - but - hopefully she or her brother Paul will read this and confirm? He has been emailing so I know Rosa is still local. It would be good if they came forward with some of their local memories.
