Great photo which I feel has been on the board in the recent past. I can only name three individuals...
1st on left front row : John Stoker 1st on left back row : Jimmy Thompson 6th from left front row : Freddie Clarke
First two lived in Arthur Street Freddie lived just over the lines on Argyle Street Those lads were two to three years older than me so I would say that the date was a little earlier. I left the Colliery Board School in 1950 so that photo might be nearer 1947/48.

That photo came from Bob Porter and he was born 1943 and he estimated those class mates were 5 or 6 then Don, so they are a bit younger than you. Bob didnt tell me where he is on the photo unfortunately. Maybe someone might recognise him.

Norman (Dunn), I can't argue with that and if you are right then I have wrongly identified those three individuals. All I can say now is that the lad on the extreme left, front row is definitely one of the Stoker brothers of Arthur Street. They all had very similar facial features.
Norman (Holmes), very sorry to hear that Freddie passed away. He was one of the few people I occasionally bumped into long after leaving school. The reason was that he married a girl who lived on the same road (Elmfield) as my wife. That lad in the photo looks very much like him but now I come to think about it, Freddie Clarke always wore spectacles.

Well we left in 1947, had it been then, I feel sure one of my brothers would have been on it, as they were close in age. Norman 5,Leslie 7, Ronnie 9.( The Goodall boys)
