Three photos taken at Markham's Chase School during the time my future wife's, who appears in all of them, was there. A date on the back of the second photo is 20 July 1960 but not sure of when the other two were taken.

I think the teacher is Miss Wheatcroft. She is also in the photo in the article "Markhams Chase Teachers 1956" where Ann Rugg has also named her as Miss Wheatcroft.

Teddy Llewellyn is No. 16. not No. 3.

Editor: Thanks Nina, I will see if we can improve on this photograph

Hi Nina, I remember Charlie Llewellyn from Markhams Chase, I think he had only one good arm, the other a prosthetic? Have been trying to think of his name for a while and you have jogged the cells.

Editor: I have altered the page to allow the names to be added. I hope I have got them correct.

Hi David. In the first photo I recognise the twins Gladys and Teddy Llewellyn. Gladys is fourth from left in the front row. Her brother Teddy is in the row behind her just to her left. They lived in Devonshire Road not far from me. They had an older brother called Charley and another called Freddy who was the same age as me and in my class.
