note from Gordon Bannister (1944-1952) and some names from Peter Happé
plus Oct11 updates from Tim Cheyne.
I think the photo shows Mr Jordan with School and House prefects of that
time rather than a particular form.
A few names have come to mind plus a few guesses!
row: Colin Gredley, Ronald Shaw, 3rd Brian Lang, 4th Roy Clark both of
whom sadly died recently, 5th Peter Happé 6th Michael 'sticky' Glew 7th
Tim Cheyne 8th Ian Porteous 9th Alec Wardrop 10th Bryan Nicholson
11th Gordon Bannister, 12th Brian Chaplin

Harrington, 6 ?Riley, 7th John Iffland [ Mar 2015
- See note below ], 8 Colin Peplow
row 1 Maurice Holt, 2 Sidney Bull, 3 Dennis Mabey, 4 John Taylor, 5 Mr
F. Jordan, 6 Derek Gay, 7 Geoffrey Bullcock, 9 Andrew Salisbury
The boys in this photograph were from Arts and Science Sixth
The House Captains are on the front row
More Tim Cheyne notes:
At that time John Taylor was School Captain (Head Boy) and I am reasonably
sure that Maurice Holt was his deputy.
I am puzzled by three absences from the photograph:
Roderic Cook who surprised and delighted us with his 'Lord Chancellor'
in Iolanthe and later went on to a career on stage and screen.
Ian Jarvis, who joined the RAF and sadly was later killed in an accident.
Paul Mier with an incredible enquiring mind who I would think went into
science of some sort.
I thought that they were still at the school at that time but perhaps
