Some of the other names seem to be on the tip of my toingue and I may recall them later. Vicki Moffit? Pauline Campbell? Good luck - hope someone else sees this and can name a few more.      Peter Whitcomb (13/01/2010)

Miss Budd's Class.            photo provided by Gary Murphy (middle back row)

The same photo was submitted to the My Brighton and Hove website by Barry Plank 

I found this old school photograph again recently and thought that it might make some of you smile - if you can recognise yourselves that is. I can only remember a few of the names (if my memory serves me correctly). In the photo are: Jean Arrun - Harry Wolven - Peter Braddick - Maurice Bowles - Jean Peel - Peter Meadows - Ann payne - ? Jefferies. Now that's not bad, considering that with the exception of Jean Peel, I have not seen any of them for fifty seven years! So can anyone identify themselves - or anyone else here?

additional names since added by Gary Murphy (via My Brighton and Hove website)

Front, L-R, William White, Christopher?,Robin Campbell, Peter Medhurst, Philip Morgan, John Sussex, Roger Townsend, Alan Burton, Geoffrey Steel. Next row, can only remember Jean Peel, Maureen White, Linda Verrion, Joan Payne, Sandra Crouch, Gillian Dorman. Next, Michael Hickman, Peter Braddick, David Cowstick, Michael Wilson, -, John Eastwood, Terry Gray, -,-, Charles Parks, Maurice Bowles. Next, Deidre Hancock, Shirley Challen, -,-, Derek Wolvern, Anne Chapman, Malcolm Jeffries. Back row - Jean ?, Graham Childs, Me, David Funell, Philip Ward. Maybe someone else can fill in the blanks!

Hertford Class @ The Annex at St Josephs 

photo provided by Gary Murphy (far left back row)

 Information from Digby Monk - I was at Hertford Road school from 1952 and have just noticed myself in the photo of Gary Murphy's on this site of the Annex Class at St Josephs of 1958. After all these many years, other then to identify myself (4th from right - back row) and Gary Murphy from the photo, the only other I can i/d is Stewart Coblenze  (not sure if  I have spelt this correctly) middle row seated - 2nd from left.  I have fond me memories of the school and in particular Mr Grant one of the teachers at the annex.

It's taken a little while, but I've managed to find and scan the two class photos from Hertford Infants in the early 70's. The first I think was taken around 1972, our first year in the Infants. Unfortunately I can't remember our Teacher's name, but I do remember some of the other faces.  I'm in the second row, 4th from left.

I think our Teacher was Mrs Kenny, and I seem to recall that prior to Herford Middle opening, the years were mixed, as some of the faces in this picture, were in the year above me once we moved up to the middle school. Again I'm 4th from left in the second row (seated). Both were taken in the hall.
