Antony Torpy(torchy) second from right, Malcolm Mcmarn third from left not counting the little chap half on. That looks like Albert Garry on the left of the group. Iknow the chap in between Albert and Malcolm but his name wont come to mind

Hi, Just seen this photo it seems like a long time ago when we were at tommy moore as we called it. I wonder if all of us are still on this planet hope so. Great picture thanks for the memory Joe. Frank Smith

Hi Carl, also sorry to hear Barry died, it must be that time in our lives as I recently heard of 4 old pals gone west. Stan, I was in the B stream all the way through school,last teacher was Mr Anderton. Went into electronics after school. Just about to move to New Zealand where 2 of my kids live.
