The boy at the back with the fair hair, standing in the doorway on the right hand side I think is me. I don,t remember the photo being taken, but I do recognize the names, in particular Tommy Blinkhorn. I was there from 1945 to 1950.

The little blonde haired girl on the second row behind the front row could be my mum Alison Meadows...can anyone confirm that? The girl looks just like my youngest sister at the same age.
