  • Re ‘probably the folk group’ standing in front of the King John School band at a concert at the Palace Theatre in Westcliff, 1970 – 72, that is correct. I recognise Terry Butcher on Trombone and he would have left in 1972.

  • Re photo ‘King John School date unknown’, it is 1965. Line up, as far as my memory goes is: Back row: Kevin Wright (?), Lorraine Duncan, Jean, Jean Palmer, Jane Taylor. 2nd row: Me (Rosemary Mitchell), Linda Goodard, Susan Beasley, Christine Lake (I hope I chose the right twin!) Next row down standing on left: Linda Goodchild, Carol Young, possibly Shonagh, then sitting: Jeanette, Maureen Patrick, Janette Whaling, Pauline/Paulette?, unkn, next row: Donna Thomas, Linda Johnson, Wendy Watts, Christine Clubb, Pauline Fulford, unkn; standing on right Wendy Weeks, Elaine Walker behind her, unkn. Front row: Martin Levinson(?), unkn, David Soloman(?), Mr Blaker, Robert Bone, Barry Trussler. Lovely seeing this picture!

  • I believe the photo labelled “King John School date unknown” is 1965. I recognize myself and classmates and it looks like our first year at King John. There are many of the same students in a photo on a King John site titled the “Class of 1970”.
    Seated in the second row from the front is Donna and beside her, myself. In the same row and behind Mr. Blaker is Christine, I believe

  • I think the teacher was Mr. Blaker and the picture was taken outside “the huts”.

  • I lived in Benfleet from about 1954 to 1966 and it would be interesting to see photos.

    Editor: This link will take you to other pages on The King John School.

  • Although I didn’t go to King John School, I recognise several people in this picture so it’s probably about 1965. Rear row: unknown, Lorraine Duncan, unknown, Jean Palmer, Jane Taylor, unknown.
