I know who is, but cant tell who it is....
Chris: Second row down, fourth in from the left. I'm the 2nd in..
smile I'm guessing second row, fourth from the left?
Chris: Yes indeed Elizabeth. He's still recognisable all these years later
Joli noir et blanc pour cette photo de classe.
Chris: A long time ago now Martine..

Oh yes, I know! Happy Birthday to him! I agree with Elizabeth. Nice that there girls and boys in one class in the Primary School! So many pupils in one class! (we were 40 pupils)
Chris: These were happy happy days Philine, a wonderful childhood.

I never took any notice of the girls in the class, they meant nothing to me then..

And where are you - in the last row?
Chris: Second row down, second in from the left
You didn't have a beard in those days then? You can see it is Chad
Chris: I grew a beard at a later date

Strangely, there seem to be far more boys than girls in the class.
Chris: Why is that strange?

"During my second year at school we played a game of eye spy to help us with the alphabet. It was my turn to think of something, and I spied a vase of flowers. "I spy with my little eye something beginning with wuh", I proudly announced. Nobody could guess, and the lady teacher was getting a little irritated. "Are you sure, Andrew, because we have named everything beginning with w", she asked of me. I was sure of my choice and in the end the class gave up. "What is it?", asked the intrigued teacher. "Wuh for woses", I declared. Everyone laughed and I felt terribly ashamed and embarrassed. The problem is that I knew that roses began with the letter 'r', but I could not say it, it always came out as "wuh'.

Chris: But he cured himself in the end Philine

I might be able to

Chad hasn't changed one iota, has he? Your beard is yet to come in....
Chris: Chad has always seemed the same to me Penny

My beard was a quarter of a century away at this point
You have not changed much either. I am surprised by the scarcity of girls there. I would say my classes were about equal.
Chris: If this was current I'm sure all classes would be equal male/female
Chad hasn't changed hardly at all over all those years has he. It is great you are still in touch, I am still close friends with two of my school friends, we are all 75 during the next few weeks.
Chris: Yes it's nice to keep in touch Brian

Oh dear! Are we allowed to show pictures of schoolchildren these days? I hope you don't get your door battered down before dawn with the police then confiscating your computer. Thanks to your answer to Frank, I reckon it is young Chad. A photos from such innocent days.
Chris: It could not have been more innocent..

How lovely that you still have this picture. I don't remember getting class photographs at junior school only at secondary school.
Chris: And I still remember most of the names too Anne!

Chris: It was Chad's 70th today Peter
