Hello William, I am standing in front of you and remember a few names in our class. 

Front row l to r ? David Wolf, Billy Mcfarland, Michael Jenkins,Trevor Fawbert, Colin ...? ? Barry Ousley.

Time is going too fast now. Mr Packam was a good teacher although I didn't appreciate it at the time. My husband remembers him in 1945/6 when he was in the men's choir at St Anne's Church, Kemp Town. My husband was 12/13.

I am Trevor Fawbert. I am in the middle of the front row next to Colin Cook, my twin sister Valerie second row down r/hand end next to Barbara New. Sadly John Clegg passed away quite young I believe.
