All these chaps were all 5th and 6th formers, and a few were prefects. They were all of Indian origin either from India or South Africa. If my memory does not fail me, one was called Patel and another Yacobs - the rest I can not remember. But I am sure most of them were on the school hockey team.
Incidentaly do you remember how passionate old Mosey was about hockey? I appear somehere more or less in the middle of the photo. King's paid each of us - per week - 25 shillings pocket money. That was a lot of money, when considering going to "Roxsea" movie theater for one shillings and six pence, and 2 different films were shown! The good old days!
At the bottom of picture - second from right - was the landlord's daughter who was called Susan. One night she kissed me good night on the cheeks, and I did not sleep all night.
