David Humpries added: "... I don't think that the teachers name is correct; Miss Marfell was a teacher (she taught me) but this may be Miss (Mrs) Johnson".

Willie Beckett added (January 2015): "... I am the 5th pupil on the back row (scruffy tie etc. to the left of Vince Roberts). Believe it or not but I can remember the photo being taken. Mum insisted that I wear a tie and comb my hair before going to school that day. However, she failed to factor in that there would be a play and lunch-time before the photo shoot. As it was we played football that lunch time and I ended up getting trampled upon in a free for all melee - hence the 'slightly' dishevelled appearance".

Thanks also to Ruth Jackson.
