Hi Canny Lass, whilst John Shelley posted the photo on Facebooks Bygone Bedlington, I am in the front row and have helped with names.

It is I who thinks it is Moira Climpson, whilst I am happy to be proved wrong, I know she was a Netherton girl who was in our class.  I agree with you that she didn't have short hair. Perhaps she had it tied back for the photo. On closer look at the photo maybe this is the answer. Anyway, if someone else can have a look and help out with this query, then hopefully we can clarify who No. 14 is. It would also be very helpful if anyone can fill in the missing names.

You're probably right, Ovalteeny. On closer ispection she seems to be wearing a hairband which would take the hair away from her face. The year is about right. Moira was a couple of years younger than me.

11 is Joyce Peacock who lived in North Blyth. 12 is Pamela Straw. Joyce and Pamela were friends of mine at school. 20 is Ann Crosby.

I am 21 Valerie Straker.

Previous discusion re Moira Climson, I remember she used to have her hair clipped back. 

Now I`m about to be 70 I wonder what happened to everyone. I left Northumberland 44 years ago but remember all of them as in this photo, I still have my copy.
