The Quay School header from 1929

In 2002 I borrowed this class photo from the late Norman Robb.Norman had dementia setting in and his son said his dad couldnt tell you what he did half an hour ago yet he's remembered all those names.
I wonder what those other boys did after leaving school.Did they also go off to war?
One boy was off school the day the photo was taken and his name was Tommy Kidger. Tommy like Howard Langlands also went into the RAF and was awarded a DFC by 'Bomber Harris'.He survived and had a long life.
