David Morris added: "... would the policeman between the two ladies at 27 and 29 be Mr Qail* (can't remember the spelling) He taught physics and had a penchant for wearing plus fours. Hence his nick name "Caddy" and came from the Isle of Mann?"

"Mr Roberts did not join the School until 1954/55. ... *Mr Quale did not tread the boards in the operas but was fully occupied with the lighting and special effects". - JR
