The above photograph was taken at the beginning of the 1958/59 school year.
I received the following communication from Andrea Ash (née Pinnell) on the 4/11/2011
Like most folk, I recognise so many faces but not always their names. I have just been going through an old autograph book and its prompted me to think of sending a list. One list would of the teachers (not the old die-hards who everyone knows). The other list would be of names of some of the pupils. Perhaps it might click some-one’s memory – they might then be able to name more faces. What do you think?
Regards and thanks for all your hard work.
I thought it was a good idea as some of the names could well trigger some bodies memory so I asked Andrea to provide the information. No sooner said than done, I received the following Yesterday.
Your suggested Addendum
I have managed to get the lists together. Please look at these and if you know that some of the names are not relevant, then please delete them and feel free to alter my note too and the columns may need lining up!
Best wishes from Andrea
LAINDON HISTORY SITE – NAMES FROM AUTOGRAPH BOOK
Like most folk, I recognise so many faces but not always their names. I have just been going through an old autograph book and it has prompted me to think of sending two lists. One list is of the teachers (not of the old die-hards who everyone knows). The other list is of some of the names of pupils. Perhaps it might click memories – they might then be able to link some names to faces, if only a couple more. Obviously some may be earlier/later than the photo, but here goes just in case:
Heather Burt J Leach
G Smith Jim Parsons
D Durrant B Huxen
J R Phillips Christine Burden
E A Wells Evelyn Hollington
Margaret Parris Ann Bullimore
J G Richards Brenda Coffield
D A Foley Linda Peppit
D N Finch Brian Forshaw
A W Seaman Maureen Wright
Kenneth A Smale Sandra Dibley
C P Gane Arthur Cudbill
J C Angel Wendy Griffiths
C G Poole Ernie Strong
P M Bane Janet Rawley
(and a couple of indecipherable names)
Perhaps someone else might have an autograph book that will give up some more names. Good luck !
I was going to add this as an addendum but felt it would be better on the front page
