  • The two teachers at the back could be Mr. Turnouth (Headmaster) and Mr. Eastwood.

  • I’m glad that Bob Kennett has added his thoughts to this and I now totally agree with him that this is John French.  His family lived in Mill Cross Road as I recall.

  • Yes, they were my next door neighbours at number 17. David, Richard, John, Clive and the youngest Christopher. I remember you Tony (Bev) from Hove Grammar – a demon bowler if I am not mistaken responsible for the memorable dismissal of Rex Hepburn first ball in a school vs. masters match. Halcyon days. Have you visited the school website http://www.hovegrammarschool.org.uk ?
