Michael McBurney started the naming process with: “Since Barbara has started this and it will probably embarrassing to get names wrong I will start it off. The year I believe would be 1962-63. I trust I will not offend anyone with my bad memory but I now hope someone will fill in the rest and correct any errors.” Steven Thornton added: “I’m very impressed with Michaels memory (certainly better than mine). I think I can fill in a few blanks; Form 1A March 1963.” Bob Barton tells us: ”No.8 Middle row is John Watts whose family was very kind to me when I moved to Brotton from the West Riding.”

    Hi. Mostly done – great work Michael McBurney and Steven Thornton – but just to fill in a couple of blanks. Back row – Ben OBrien was proerly called Peter James O’Brien; Next to him is Geoffrey Flannery. Middle row – Michael Wright; Andrew Gamble. Front row – David (?) Standring; Ronald Beedle; Mr Stairmand; Ian (?) Sillett. And I think this was form 1 Alpha (not A) in 62/63. (Alan Munday)

  • Andrew Gamblin

    Hi Alan, it is Andrew Gamblin, not Gamble. Middle row, on my right is Leon Greenwood (I think).Front row far right is David Sillett (Young Egg)
    Middle row #6 is Richard Souter (only one T if I recall correctly) and #7 is Robert Crighton)
