I was at Fawcett 1952-55/6 and can identify back row 9 as me next but one to me should be Brian Skinner, next to him is ? Baker, front row 4 is Peter Bayes. Smithy back row 2 is almost certinly looking over at the girls school. Mr Webb was a good teacher but I don't look back on my time there with any affection

Hi John, you won't know me but if you are who I think you are then I remember you when you lived in Clarence Square.  You and your brothers were in the Boys' Brigade and as I was in the Scouts - we would sometimes clash. The only other face that I recognise is Augustus Engleman. John Wignall

I probably was looking at the girls. However No 8 in the back row was named Mercer, I can't remember his christian name.

I was in form 1a when John smith was there. He probably won't remember me but it is nice to see a few of the old boys are still around because we are all in our 70s now. I have lived in Australia for over 30 years but will be in Brighton next year so may pay a visit to the old school.

Yes that is me No 8 back row - Christopher Mercer - how did you remember me after so long John ? I can only remember Mr Webb from this photo - that is the names not the image. Have been in the Royal Navy and the oil world as a medic for over 40 years and now live in Fareham. Still have a friend from the school - John Reany - who still lives in Brighton.
