David, owd block, as you call him isn't on this picture. I don't know who these teachers are, but block was Mr. Heyes. He taught my father and uncle, and was headmaster when I attended. He is on other pictures within this section, take look and judge for yourself.

OWD AGGIE, I think his last name was Middlehurst!
