photo made the long journey to Australia and then on to New
Zealand in 1960 when Leslie and Gladys Batt emigrated with their
boys John and Julian. It returned to Caerleon at the speed of
light via email!
who is second from the left in the back row, sent us the picture.
Can YOU help by putting names to some of the faces? Julian was
born in 1952, so his ex-classmates will now be 52 or 53.
also a photos of Caerleon Infants on the school field taken
the previous year:

identify the following pupils with 98% certainty:

Lentle, Paul Llewellyn, Kevin Murray, Paul Dowden, Timothy Nash,
Peter Turner, Phillip Dowden, Glyn Macey, Goeffrey Eddolls,
Geraldean Penn, ?, ?, Betty Dominie, Eileen Barker, Gillian
Baulch, ?, ?.
have been sent these names by another visitor to Caerleon Net:
Frank Snook, Julian Batt, Simon Fry, Joan Williams, Wendy Nash,
Kenneth Lentle, Paul Llewellyn, Kevin Murray, Paul Dowden, Neil
Barker, Peter Turner, Phillip Dowden, Glyn Macey, Goeffrey Eddolls, Paul Townsend
Christopher ?, Margaret Ronertson, Susan Crossman, Gillian Raikes,
Jean Waggett, Gillian Baulch, Brenda Harvey and Gillian Williams
anyone help with positive identifications of any of those pictured?
interesting to note that the children featured in this photograph
and also the other two 1957 feature groups of children from
different aged classes I can only presume that the photographer
was allowed to muddle the different groups up as the different
classes lined up for the shots. (I imagine being a school photographer
in those days was a thankless and unrewarding occupation and
he/she just got it over with asap.)
