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.

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?
