Class photograph c1955/56

What a great band! Unfortunately I don’t have a list of names to go with this but I can identify a few from memory, which may or may not be correct.

Back row far right Andrew Henbest.

Middle row far left Simon Spalding, second from right Roger Storey? far right Chris Dawson (me)

Front Row third from left Graham Openshaw.

I’m sure there are people out there who can fill in a few gaps.

Can you help?

  • I was at Rottingdean Infants from 1954 .So would be a class below the children in this photo.But most of the names are very familiar .I believe my dad was friends with Roger Storeys dad .They worked together .Happy days .I can’t believe how the years have gone .I was glad to loose the surname .De,Ath .
