Was I real shock seeing this photo of my old class, don't remember ever having seen it before. Lots of familiar names and barely remembered faces from nearly 50 years ago. My family emigrated to S Africa in 1972 and I have had no contact with anyone in this picutre since. You seem to have most of the names, all I can add is front row 3rd left is my old neighbour from Nantybwch, Duncan Skeates. And that middle row far right is Peter Davies (me!).

"The working class and the employing class have nothing in common."

I taught some of the pupils in the photograph from September 1972 until December 1972 in Dukestown Junior School . I remember them well especially Stephen Sandercock, Gary Bevan ,the Dando twins (also taught Stephen Dando and Sharon Riding's brother Kevin)I just hope they are all alive, happy and well.
