Top left- Is that Evan Potts?
Martin Powell   [Oct 03, 2010 at 07:39 AM]
Could be - I know he was playing cricket with the big boys when we were only in 3A.
Tex Brown   [Oct 03, 2010 at 12:46 PM]
No, Top Left is Graham Roberts...see the football team pic ( also top left)
Chris Willmann   [Oct 03, 2010 at 06:25 PM]
I doff my non existent chapeau to you Tex. I had the same thought as Martin- EP played with the big boys when we were in 3A and smoked everyone that year in the individual skills competition. Is that a suppressed memory Tex? Wink

But if EP was U6 in 1970, he could only have been 1st Year when this was taken?
Martin Powell   [Oct 04, 2010 at 06:27 AM]
He was - with me - but we didn't know when it was taken (tho I suppose could have guessed from the fact that it was sent in by TB who I knew was your & Les's year. Wonderful thing hindsight, I have loads of it). We could just delete this whole chat and start again.

Certainly not, it is such minutiae that make life interesting to pedants. Laughing
Tex Brown   [Oct 06, 2010 at 11:54 AM]
Chris I think that EP and I may have been in the Block 18 Smoking Squad at the same time! In terms of chronology, the team was pictured in 1963 and the photo appeared in the Summer 1964 School Magazine
Martin Powell   [Oct 06, 2010 at 03:20 PM]
Doubt v much if Ev (1A1) wd've been smoking with U6-ers.
Tex Brown   [Oct 07, 2010 at 06:05 AM]
Martin, I was using irony: see Chris Willmann's comments above re "smoked".
Martin Powell   [Oct 07, 2010 at 08:05 AM]
Oh irony. Like fourth prize after gold silvery and bronzy.
Chris Willmann   [Oct 07, 2010 at 02:22 PM]
As Martin said, we (I) didn't know what year the picture was taken. I didn't realize you Tex were that far ahead of us. Admin, it would be a pity to delete this little bit of banter, so I'm with you on that one.
Prefect   [Oct 08, 2010 at 01:07 AM]
Fear not, all will be preserved for posterity! Wink (He said hopefully!)
