WHAT a happy bunch this lot were, judging by those smiles. They were pupils at Caslon Primary School in Cradley, and the picture is thought to date from around 1953 or '54.
It has been brought in to us by Gary Billingham (third from left in the back row), who would like to get in touch with any of his former classmates if possible, and has provided as many names as he can. They are, from left in the back row:
?, form teacher; Derek Worton, Gary Billingham; Shaney Griffiths; Ray Cole; Glyn ___; Martin Moore; ?; ?; Bruce Yarnall; Robert Skelding; Dennis Woodward.
Middle row: ?; ?; ?; Stuart Rollason; Patricia Tilt; Judith ___; ?; ?; Paul Taylor; ?; Sandra Penn.
