Thanks to Lawrence Wragg (1956-63) for the following comments on this photo:- “The back row is (from the left) J.A.T. Goodborn (John), M.F. Jones (Martin), T.C. Bass (Tom), C.B. Stillwell (Colin) and J.R. Marshall (John). The front row is K.H. Walker (Kenneth), T.G. Pettigrew (Tom), K.H. Stimson (Keith, but known as Henry; younger brother of R.F. Stimson, also at Rendcomb), J.T. Wood (John – sadly killed with his girlfriend in an air crash on the way to a holiday in Yugoslavia in the late 60s or early 70s) and G.C. Chapman (George). Since this was my form, I should have been there, and I suspect that my absence was caused by having an organ lesson in Gloucester (which means it would be a Tuesday, between 12.00 and 16.00). Curiously, I can’t think of any other missing persons. The ties have always puzzled me: I think they must have been put on for the event. Curious to think that just having one’s photo taken was sufficient of an incentive.”
