I think the girl between Iris and Dennis (3rd row) is Pamela Payne, ***** Kennard is Valerie, and ***** Green could be Theresa Bean (I'll check with her brother who's a neighbour of mine). Lesley - 2nd row - joined at the hip to Terri Eason!

Hi Lesley, thanks for posting a comment. As soon as I saw the names you mentioned I remembered them; I had it in my mind that Theresa Bean was Theresa Green but I was sure it couldn’t be that name. I seem to remember you were good friends with Theresa Eason; you are still joined at the hip on the 1967 photo too.

Kelvin Holmes is my brother. He emigrated to Australia about 30 years ago and has not been back since. He is in construction now but was taking tourists on coral diving trips over there.

Hello Marina, Hope you don't mind me getting back in contact, but my brother was visiting and we were going through some old pictures that lead us on to Friends R. It just seemed so weird that old school photo, all the time I knew your brother I never realised we went to the same infants school. I have a class photo from the year after with Mr Smith & Co. Marina, I hope that I didn't offend you in some way the last time we had contact, I would really love for you to get in touch. xx

Hi Marina, I was good friends with your sister Julia when you lived in Manor Crescent. I remember Karen, Kelvin, Julia, yourself- is there one I've missed? I lived in Hervey Road. Give my regards to Julia.

I think that's me "front row, fourth from left" Kim Orzynski. I've got a feeling that is earlier than 1965, though; maybe 1961 which would make me 9 years old.

I went to senior school with Oliver Cowl, not heard the name in many a year. If this pic was in 1965 then you'd all be about 9 years old.

Kim, This photo is definitely 1965, I'm sitting in the front row.
Ken, Oliver lived in St Georges Road, Kemp Town, he also had an older brother. His mum was a local schoolteacher. The last time I saw him, he was a mens' hairdresser in Church Street, Brighton, but that was a few years ago now.

Thanks Michael. Ollie a hairdresser yet he always had dead straight hair. I think he also had a younger sister who had long dark hair.
