My brothers Hugh and Paul Beeson, who were twins and then eight years old, had joined the school the previous year when we had moved from Hampshire and back to my father's hometown.

Hugh Beeson, who died in 1994, is the first child on the left in the second row. Paul, who is still alive and lives in Kent, is third from the right in the front row.

Both later went to Fawcett School, and then Hugh to the new Westlain Grammar and Paul to Dorothy Stringer Secondary Modern.
