John Keenleyside Comments:
‘Mike Hodgson was not in the photograph for some reason. The numbers came up to 30 because Alfie Weir was originally not one of our year. He was a member of the 1950-1952 class but struck down by some rare disease and missed out on attending his final exam. He was married and his wife was a server in the school canteen. He bunked up with her in the YMCA building and sat his final exams with us in 1953, this explains the anomaly in the numbers game.’
