What a lovely surprise after so long i had never seen this photo before Thats me on the mat front right
you must have known my brother, the tall fellow middle of back row-Tony Bate- he is 6'4" I am all of 5'2
Just seen the photo, what memories it brings back. I remember Anthony Bates. I am Margaret Smith on the front row at the end on the right. Can't remember everyones name but I remember quite a few.
3rd from the right on the back row. Now married with 3 children and 5 grand children.
That's my mum, Margaret Owen (as was) r/h end of the middle row. I showed her this pic and she recalled how the tall guy in the middle of the back row, used to eat worms in biololgy classes.
Can anyone tell me exactly where in the school this photo was taken?
A blast from the past. Yes I too remember Anthony and Nobby - they amused the class on many occasions. I especially remember the ear piercing trick! Happy Days.
The photo is taken in the corner of the playground - Chemy Lab window on right and Geography Room window on left. Taffy Jones used to gaze out of the window towards the boys' toilets when referring to somewhere "Beyond the Urals".
I visited Anthony Bate at his house in Ashton. Had plenty to talk about. I am presently living in Westhoughton, Bolton.
Happy christmas everyone. 1cmap
Very fond memories, I am next to Tony Bates, on his right. There were several brass band players in the class, we often marched to school whistling marches.

What a surprise to recognise Aubrey Fairclough 4th from left from when I lived Hindley back in the 1950. Lovely guy.
