Appleton School photos from 1960s/70s

And some of the Boys Brigade

I was a pupil at Appleton School from 1968 to 1976 starting in class 1P, Miss Pollitt’s class.

I was more interested in working backstage on all the school plays than anything else, and I have attached a couple of pictures. One shows me (back to camera) at the old lighting control board backstage (Photo 1), and the other is a cast photo from Caucasian Chalk Circle (Photo 2).

Does anyone else remember the Inters Youth Club? It met once a week in the Benfleet Methodist Church hall. The picture (Photo 4) is of me, left and Jonathan Harris, right with another boy winning the Initiative test one week. All very exciting!

I have also included some pictures of the 6th Southend Boys Brigade who are mentioned on another page of this site.

  • My father, Brian Byford, was a part of the Boys’ Brigade group but was not in either image. He may have been taking the pictures, or was the Mace Bearer at the time and therefore not in the pictures.

    Between my dad, brother and sister and I we recognise the following people:

    Ron H
    Vince C
    Martin H
    Adrian Pegg
    Dick Fawcett (1st of the two images)
    Barry Brazier
    3x Hurrell boys

    Best regards, Sam.
