Identification list

Add a name

Updated October 17, 2010

Another picture supplied by Martin Bemment. This picture is 50 years old, I find it quite impresive that a copy has survived. It may be a long time ago but as usual your help is requested in identifying as many people as we can. People are fairly well spaced on this picture, making the task of counting faces a little easier than normal. There is one oddity - row 4 peters out about half way across the picture.

Listed below the picture are those people identified so far. If you can identify any more, then please use the form below to submit the information. If I've got anything wrong then please e-mail me to tell me about it. Please note - unlike other school photos I haven't created a second page with the list only. This saves my time, but if you are feeling the lack of it let me know and I may reinstate it.

75% currently identified.

I have identified the following person
