Hi Philip, I'm not sure but I think the blonde lad, first on left back row is my ex-husband Vincent Wadsworth.

The girls on the second step up on the right are Margaret Crinnigan, myself, and Maureen Johnson. I think the girl holding the badge is Joan Lavin and on the right of her Janet McLoughlin,Noreen Bohannan and Lorraine Higham.

Hi Anne, It isn't Margaret Crinnigan - the girl on the left of you Anne is Pat Price, and yes you are right it is Joan Lavin holding the badge. There are few more faces on there I remember {:o)

Hi Maureen. You are right now that I look at it. I remember the photo being taken but I cannot remember for what reason.

On the back row right in the centre is a tall guy possibly the teacher on his left as we look at it I am fairly sure is Brian Thornton. We were best friends growing up he lived at 4th street Bryn Gates until he went to university to become a PE teacher. He came to my wedding in 1974 but I havnt seen him since I would love to know where he is now. Dose anyone know anything
