Classics

I did Classics (Latin, Greek and Ancient History) for A-Level and never regretted this choice as I was lucky enough to be taught by five excellent teachers duing my three and a bit years in the sixth form (1967-70).

Can anyone identify this boy (or boys)?

http://www.rgs.saund.co.uk/images/jarvisbenjamin.jpg I was wondering if anyone could identify the boy (or boys) in the photo above. It is a composite taken from the 1958 Junior, 1960 Senior and 1962 Senior school photos. I thought they were all the same boy until Mike Horrex wrote to me and positiv...
