OHR 1967. My friend Banjo brought round this scan of a photo from 1967. It's not great quality, and I don't have the energy to type out all the names, but my nephew Paul Murray is third from the left in the back row. Sadly, Paul passed away a few years ago. David 'Banjo' Parker is in there somewhere too. Banjo pointed out that 2020 is the Bus Pass year for this class.
