Digby James sends some photo memories. 

Can you name names? Let us know michael.peagram@gmail.com

Can I interest you in the two attached images for the Old Priceans 
web-site? One is the 1969/1970 upper sixth (I'm at the back 
somewhere). I could probably name about half those pictured with some 
effort. Kev O'Carroll's in the middle somewhere. I notice that he's 
been making comments on the web-site. The last time I saw him was 
probably 1972 when he came and stayed the night in my college digs in 
order to see The Doors play at college (sans Morrison who was dead by 
then). The other picture is a CCF parade day from, I would guess, 
1968. Again, I could name a few. Steve Chappell is in the middle I'm 
behind him to the left. Osborne (with an 'e') is the corporal on the 
left. I could never remember his first name because everyone called 
him 'Spaz'.

Here's the list (above) I've got on my web-site which I think fills in some gaps. I've just tried naming everyone for my own site
(http://www.quintapress.com/AncientHistory/Schools.html).

 
Chris Starr is definitely NOT there. He was in the lower 6th that year. Having failed maths and physics in 1970 I had to stay on for another year and got to know him quite well.

Brian Moxey offers:

Hi Michael,
A few more names following on from Kev and Robin.

Second row next to Nigel Balchin is Beasley, that is not Chris Starr
next to him.

Third row on my left, is Cotterell ?, between Steve Kimberely and Mike
Crawshaw is Bartlett, end of the is Tony Beaton.

Fourth row  between Richard Corby and Tony Beaton is Clive Nicolson.

Loose back row next to Steve Dear is Pilkington, on the left of Pete
Long is Ian Scott (I.R.). On the left of Digby James are Scammel and
Hugh Smith (behind oon either side of Collin Stevens Hoare).

Regards
Kelvin Parker

Just a few remarks on the 6th form photo:

As far as I remember we referred to Cotton (front row, left) as Nick (his initials were R.N.). Second from the left in the front row is not me (I left in December 1969 after staying on after the summer to do my S levels), but Keith Wilkes. Mike Dashper is certainly correct (so the question mark can be removed). Burgess's Christian name was I believe Mark. Brian Carriss's surname is spelt Cariss. The second from the left in the back row (the back row being loosely construed as everyone standing at the back) is Brian Gamblin, the sixth from the left Paul Hawes. I remember that Rob Unwin was often referred to as "Stan". I recognise some of the other "missing persons" too but unfortunately just can't put a name to them.

 Sitting front row on Bob Lee’s right is Chris Bard, and next to him I think is Crocker.  On his right is Mike Dashper
Brian Kellett adds:
Sixth form 1970 photo: back row, 6th from the left is Paul Hawes (son of
the rector of St Mary's church, Rowner, Gosport).

A friend came across this - I am Paul Hawes' wife (top row, 6 from left. If you want to see what we are up to, look on our web site (see below!). I knew quite a few of the lads in Paul's year as we knew each other as 15 year olds - I went to Bay House, Gosport.
