Empire Day 1957 or 58

Empire Day celebration
From the private collection of Georgie Hole

Anyone have a copy?

This is Empire Day being celebrated at Patcham Junior School in 1957 or 1958.  David White has been in touch with Patcham Local History Group to say that he was at the school in the late 1950s, and would like to acquire a good copy of the original picture. He thinks the picture was first published in one of the local papers, the Brighton Gazette or the Brighton and Hove Herald.  Inquiries via My Brighton and Hove have shown that the original negatives don’t exist any more. Does anyone own a good copy, by any chance?
