The teacher on the far left with the bold head is Mr Hayes, he was still there when I went in the 70s.... he was the headmaster then.

I have mentioned this on previous photographs. Mr Hayes, or was it Heyes?,, was the teacher,teaching the "A"class, in the Spring of 1945, when I first went there, from St Mary's Junior school.

My God... so it is Mr Haliwell! He was at the Brittania Bridge when we had woodwork with him... I would never have guessed it was him, but now you mention the name I can that it is.
