Taken circa 1930s
I recently came across the attached photo of my father in law who was a student at Varndean Grammar School in the 1930s. I believe the photo was taken in about 1937 or 1938. Jack Manning, (my father in law) is in the second row down on the right.
A famous ‘old boy’
Jack went to school with Sir Paul Scofield, whose ‘Time‘ obituary states ”At Varndean School for Boys, in Brighton, he played Juliet and Rosalind, but showed no interest in further education and left in his mid-teens”. It is possible therefore that he is also present in the photo, though I have no idea where.
Recognise yourself here
As most of the boys in the photo would be in their 80s by now, identification of individuals might be difficult. But if you do recognise yourself or anyone else, please leave a comment below.
