Thanks also to Stephen Daly who also added: "... Bob Merriman was known as 'Mersal', David Watkins as 'Ottie', Robert Hale as 'Monte' and me Stephen Daly known as 'Danny' - last 2 based on filmstars? ... the PT teacher was Geoff Goddard - I recall this as it was same name as a cricketer. The 'head' was known to everyone as 'Tim' which I can't understand as his initials were C L"

Su Hayter added (August 2010): "... I am writing to ask if anyone has the contact email of Brian J Stephens noted in the picture of East Dean school. I have found some sketches by someone by this name and my mother was originally from May Hill so I wondered if it was the same person. If you have any details I would be grateful if you could forward this email to him as I would be keen to find out more. They are sketches of Stratford however his address is in Stourport on Severn".
