  • I too went to Whitehawk primary. I can’t remember any names, but the kid on the left in the back row, with the curly hair lived in Wiston Close or lane. I know this because he can be seen in pictures I have posted of the coronation street party in Wiston close, Whitehawk.

  • I’m 4th one from the right in the back row, haven’t got a clue who else is there!

  • Browsing through this site and I came across what looks like my ‘auntie Sandra’. Back then she would have been Sandra Steele. She is married to who I call ‘my uncle Eric’! That being Eric Fogden (not Fogdon) who appears in another photo. They live in Brighton area still, as does my dad, Peter ‘ tweet’ Steele who I would love to have seen in a photo but can’t make him out. He was born Dec 1945. Oh – and Sandra is second from right, sitting on chair, in the white! I will be showing them tomorrow.

  • Is the lad sitting on the far right in the front row Billy Ticehurst’s brother?

  • Yes, that is Roger Ticehurst, brother to Billy / Bill. They had another brother, David, but he sadly died some years ago.

  • I used to do a paper round at the same shop as Billy Ticehurst. It was at Nash’s in Whitehawk Road. If I remember rightly Billy had the uphill Wilson Avenue round which I believe ended up near to his home.
