Sorry after the family and me having a closer look, it is after all 28.

Editor: No 28 has already been identified as George Bartley.  Some confirmation regarding Nos 26 and 28 would be appreciated.

No. 26 is I'm sure me. Where Brian Rentcombe was I was always near.  I also remember a leather jacket the same as that one. Brian wrote 'kick me' on the back in pen and my mother went mad. I notice someone wrote No. 26 looks like Gary Cooper, well so did my dad. Lovely looking back and seeing familiar faces.

Hi Gloria, you wont find Lin on the photos as she didnt start at LHR until 1960. Pam has been identified by somebody already although the girl picked out looks a lot different to how I remember her, as you said she always had the fringe, longish black hair and glasses. However 1958 is a flippin long time ago and anything is possible. Why not show Fred the photo I know he will soon pick her out.

I can't locate Linda or Pam on photos yet Rich, still trying to get her round to have a look.

Colin, thanks for the info on Dorothy Hollington, she may remember me being a 5X prefect in 62/63 when she was in Mr Angel's class 3CA (my allocated duty). Her best friend was Linda Callow.
