  • I am in the process of mailing this photo to Chris Cotton in Auckland. I spoke on the phone with him last week and he remembers many names which I have forgotten. Hopefully, I will be able to add a few more names to faces when he replies. Should he read this, Tony Betteridge also has an excellent memory and could no doubt take us back to 1947.

  • Thanks to Chris Cotton there are four more of the girls identified. Next to Doreen Baker is Barbara Ellis and Sylvia Herring, with Veronica Leonard at number 18 ( counting from top left) and below her is Marion Godsmark.

  • I have to disagree with Barry and Chris about the girl next to Doreen Baker.  This is not Barbara Ellis.   Barbara Ellis is the 4th from the left in the third row.  Masses of golden curls !   I’ve another photo which includes her.
