I remember some of those names from Castle Hill school, but by 1960, I'd left that school.

Is there any chance that "Malcolm Barrington" was in fact Michael Barrington? I'm looking for him - his mother was married to my Uncle but she died in Canada and he was returned home to his father catherine.uffen@rogers.com
