Sacred Heart Walking Day, 60's?

Looking at the "visble" faces, only, in the near line, the third from the front looks like Joe Prior whilst the lad with the white jacket at the rear is almost certainly Alan Buckley. Just in front,and partially obscured, is possibly Peter Flanagan. The photograph is taken coming down Gidlow Lane just before the junction with Park Road at the Pagefield Hotel.
