  • Can confirm no 49 is Keith Gibb.

    By Alyson (01/06/2019)
  • I have a feeling hat 49 is my dad Keith Gibb. Seeing him today will confirm. Nice job guys.

    By Alyson Gibb (29/05/2019)
  • 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.

  • No. 6 – Marilyn? (Harsent)

    By Andrea Ash (nee Pinnell) (26/11/2016)

    By Isabel Smith (14/06/2014)
  • 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


    By David Muncey (25/12/2013)
  • No 30 on this page i would confirm that it is Colin Shipton.

    By David Muncey (25/12/2013)
  • No 31 this page shoul read John Sloper


    By David Muncey (25/12/2013)
  • I can confirm 48 is Lionel Moorcroft. Does anyone know where he is now? We used to fly model aircraft together.

    By Trevor Collison (20/08/2013)
  • 30 – Is Colin Shipton who I still bump into from time to time – although at school it was his fist.

    By Mike Smith (17/12/2012)

  • No: 35 We think is Margaret Hoare

    By Roy Webster (11/04/2012)
  • 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).

    By (CH) Andrea (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?

    By (CH) Andrea (05/04/2012)
  • Could 14 be a girl called Carol Little?

    By Andrea (05/04/2012)
  • No 38 is myself Isabel Beaney and next to me no 40 is Wendy Fox [now Liddle]. we are still in contact. I know quite a few others when I have time to go through the pic.

    By Isabel Smith [nee Beaney] (04/04/2012)
  • No.10 is Pauline Jellows Pauline’s father had a small hardware shop in the High Road – we called it the oil shop as I had to do errands there to buy paraffin. No. 12 Michael Taylor ?? No. 24 is definitely Owen Jones.

    No. 1 is Valerie Skudder who is sitting next to Josie Hunt.

    By Ann Dolton (14/02/2012)
  • I think 38 is Isobel Beany, can anyone confirm?

    By Steve White (09/02/2012)
  • No 28 is me Dave Coleman and No 29 Rodger Burroughs

    By Dave Coleman (03/02/2012)
  • No 10 Is JACKIE Nightingale not Janet who is the older sister

    By Christine Hutchings (24/01/2012)
  • Just to say, Jackie Nightingale’s older sister was Marilyn

    By Linda Clarke (24/01/2012)
  • I think that number 36 is Brenda Cauffield not sure if thats how its spelt but I went dancing with her.

    By Jean Rowe(Pattle) (31/12/2011)

  • 19 is Leslie Webb

    By Ken Page (18/12/2011)
  • 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.

    By Andrea (18/12/2011)

    By Eddie Lewis (16/12/2011)
  • Hi Gloria, really think that is Christine Austin and yes, Shirley Newman was found on another page (though that girl is very similar).

    How about number 22 – could that be Colin (?) Hussey

    By Andrea Ash (née Pinnell) (16/12/2011)
