Memories from the 1960s

David James (OB 1960s) has got in touch with some photographs and memories from his time at School.

The first, from 1967, depicts Milford Harrison (L) and David James (R) in front of their work as school poster artists.

  1. Graham Ford — the name brings back memories. I think we ran cross country together, and Graham knew the rules; once when a human arrow disappeared from the course, Graham led some of us farther and farther into the muddy woods. But we survived, and we were right! So thanks, Graham.

  2. Re South Cerney:
    Back row:second from right Ian Mackenzie, third from right Jim Coakes
    Front row: second from left Chris Riley, third from left Doug Deedman
