Identification list

Updated November 5, 2014

The 1958 picture was kindly supplied by Martin Bemment.

Trevor Payne was one of the pupils photographed, standing at the front. He recalls: "I can still recall my relief at being stood on firm ground rather than balanced on benches or tables. If I recall correctly the back row were on benches on top of tables!"

School blazers with the castle badge are in evidence on this picture. Mike Grinnell-Moore tells us: "Castle blazer badges were used as Colours awards when I was at school. I have one for Athletics dating from 1948!". In later years the badge was worn by all boys on their blazers.

Please count with great care on this picture. The front three rows in particular are muddled in places.

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.

1958Identification list

Row 1 is the back row, row 9 the front row. Numbering is from left to right. A "?" indicates a tentative identification.

Front rows
The front three rows are so muddled that the system of counting heads really doesn't work on this picture. I am experimenting with putting numbers directly on the picture to see if this is more effective. If you want to identify anyone in these rows, email me giving some information about roughly where the person is, what they look like and what the people next to them look like.
