Is Kenny Johnston the tall lad next to Patty's right side ?

Sorry Stewart, I am at the spelling errors again. I see I made a mess o Patty's name as weel. There john how's that for peedie letters. Now does anybody question the year. I think it may be slightly earlier

Thanks everybody. I'll pass the names on to the former assistant teacher. At our age, memory isn't as good as it was!!
