Phillip Meyers added (May 2010): "...Most of row 6 were in the X stream - lads like myself that took a '13 plus' exam to do technical subjects to prepare for apprenticeships. Jones, Fern, Meyers and Sleeman all played 1st XV Rugby under the eye of Mr Goddard, leaving in 1967 with GCE 'O' Levels. I lived in Lydney 1963 to 1967 then went to Bristol. I took 'A' levels then went to Shoreditch College and qualified as a Metalwork teacher. Thanks Ivor Brown for showing me how to do it so well. When I qualified I taught in New Zealand".

Rex Crook added (September 2013): "... You are correct about the x form. There were fourteen in our form, Ian Sleeman, Tony Beech, Andrew Phillips, Tony ("Fanny") Hill, Stephen Jordan , John Fern, Gordon Lambert, Leon Grabowski and myself. The other names slip my memory but if they come back to me I will forward them to you".

Steve Jordan added (Sept 2013): "... To fellow x form colleagues, the person in row 6, tenth from the left is from Yorkley, I cannot remember his name".

Thanks also to Tony Tovey, Dave Meek, Dave Nash, Sarah Green, Geoffrey Peacey, Jackie Lane, Colin Mann, Robin Phelps, Michael Beard, Dave Tuffley, Eric Marshall and Sandra Robinson.
