I am sure that the brother is Bailer or Baylor. Not sure of the spelling.

Bottom right is my dad, looks just like my brother! Will show him this, sure to make him smile.

Brother Bailey was form master. Second line, second right I think is Brian Winters from Billinge, think he became a bank manager in Wigan. Peter

That's me right enough, a much slimmer version, between Peter M and Phil W. Still in touch with Chorley contingent of Phil Waring and Phil Berry. Nice to hear you're all still out there.

Blimey - 50 odd years on and I still recognize most of these guys. Put on to this archive by Mike Sweeney. This was the 'A' stream of year 1960/61 I think. Happy days - mostly!
