The Archive thought was at Rosecroft school, as we are sure that is Mr Gratton in the background and Mr Tough is second right, with Mrs Tough with the bouquet on her lap.

    Mr Gratton taught me maths at Loftus school. I also have a photo of him when he played for Moorsholm Football team when my Dad Les Jackson played in goal.
    Ray Tough and I have known each other for nearly 50 years when we worked together.
