Hi there,
Many congratulations on a grand website. One question, please, if I may. On the second row, right hand side, is that "Graham Myers?" He used to live in Scholes ( in Wigan ) and we used to be very good friends in our teens. But I understand "Mowgli" is no longer with us. Even so, please answer my question if you can. Many thanks again.
God Bless,
Malcolm ( Bannister ).

Yes it was Graham Myers on the photograph and it was so nice to see again. It would be nice to know the boys name on the back row second left I can't remember but he looks very familiar.

Hi Malcolm, Graham Myers was my cousin and believe it or not i didn,t know that he attended St Michael,s. Yes he passed away a few years ago, i attended his funeral in Bolton. If you were a friend of Graham,s as a kid then you must remember Graham Kearns.

Hi, I was in top infants when this lot were here, but I think 5th from left, back row, is Ian Oakes from our street. Teacher on the right is of course Alan Boggis, whom everyone called Joe, never found out why.

Hi Thelma
It's so long since your plea for help, you may not even see my reply !! Just a stab in the dark from the back of my failing memory (I was in the class above )....
Could it possibly be Billy Kirkham ?
