Item #: 267
I am on the back row on the far right. Mr Johnson is class teacher.
I travelled to school with Ivor from Standish. 4th from L on back row in between Alan Storey and (i think) Phillips? To save embarrasment I won't mention how many of those young ladies I was madly in love with but remember them, and Vic Johnson, our form master, with affection. Have just remembered, Phillips is 4th on the L, middle row.
Brings back some happy memories!! This is Form 4 Sci. I am back row extreme left viewing photo.3rd back row left is Alan Storey (Lower Ince), Alan Hudson is 5th left, Kevin Swann (ex Leigh road, Hindley Green)is 5th left middle row next to Frank Philips ( ex Bickershaw)- 4th left. Ivor Hilton as he states is extreme right back row - he and I were good school friends - he lived in Standish.Pamela BrindleÉ is I think front row 2nd right. James Shepherd is 6th left middle row.
Some other names but not recognized from photo are Marjorie and Kathleen Ashurst,Rita Stretch,also the daughter of our Physics teacher `Saint`sitting RHS of Vic Johnstone, Pamela Green, Andrew Crossley (Headmasters son), Godfrey Caunce,
John Croswell is 6th from the left top row. My brother-in-law
I remember John very well from Westhoughton. We had a phase of playing Subbuteo when we swapped visits.
I had some good friends in the parallel class, (4Lit).Would be good to see them again after over 50 years! Possibly someone could put a photo on this site?
I remember most of boys names but not too many of the girls. I was surprised how easily it all came back to me.I am indeed fourth from left in middle row.Wonder where everyone is now,anyone know?
