Is this the Dick Gunn  from Elm Drive, Hove who became bore racing commentator?

Late to this page, I am confused.  Was Goldstone Junior School what I called Ellen Street?  And was it really co-ed?   I was there between '48 and '51 alongside my near neighbour and best friend Derek Blinkhorn. But in '51 we would have been ten. These folk look younger than that. So is the date of 1951 sure?  They certainly do not look ready for Grammar School. And yes, I do recognize some faces.  Buswell, Aslett, Gunn and just maybe that is Derek Blinkhorn in front.
