Class photograph 1953

This is the class of 1953 at Whitehawk Primary School. I am in the back row, second from the left and sixth from the left is Eric Fogdon.

Second row from back, seventh from the left is Linda Mauvement, and on the far right is Pamela Cousins.

Third row from back, first left is Richard Kitchen, next to him is Peter Adams, fifth from the left is Val Kipling.

Front Row, first from the left (I think) is Richard Andrews.

  • My partner Maureen is sure that the girl 2nd row down and 2nd on the left is her sister Jenny Blunt. Could anybody confirm this? I used to play football with Eric Fogden and his brother Jack.

  • Hi Peter , yes that’s me. Also in the same row 4th from left is Maria Clark, 7th from left is Pat Smith, 9th from left is Linda Maidment. On the row below 6th from left is Carol Moore with John Cottle at the very end. I haven’t a clue about anybody else though.

  • Peter, just spotted myself top row, second in from the right. Second from the right in the front row, behind the 1953 sign, is my old near neighbour from Whitehawk Way Malcolm Sturgess and second row up, third in from the right is Brian Muzzle.

  • Hi Richard, great stuff! Looking at the top, I think next to you is Dave McCulloch, 4th left Glen Ince, 3rd from the right Colin Watkins, 1st row on the left looks like David Wilde, 3rd left Susan West, 2nd right Tyrone Bean, and all of the others mentioned I did recognise quite a few. And hello to Peter Mole!

  • Hi, Peter Adams here, second row and second in from the left. Nice to see old photographs. Glen Ince seems to ring a few bells.
