THIS photograph of the staff of Heckmondwike Grammar School in 1954 appeared in Looking Back in September last year, after it was loaned to us by Pat Williams (nee Bradby).

It has come to the attention of former Grammar school pupil Malcolm Thomis, who now lives in Brisbane, Australia.

He attended the school from 1946-54 and can provide some of the names which were missing from our line-up.

First left on the back row is PE teacher Mr Davies, fifth left is Mr Fox who worked part time book-keeping, and next to him is Mrs Brenda Firth (née Cowling) who was a PE teacher.

On the middle row, biology teacher Miss Chard is first left while Mrs Edwards (née Fox) is third from the right. Her husband Col Edwards was a former head at the school.
