Hello

This is a tricky one but I'm having s go! It will probably take a while and I'm  not sure it will be very good. I expect others will be working on it though.

I've noticed that the left side seems to be missing a section. There is definitely someone sitting there as I can see part of her, including a hand. Do you have the full photo?

It takes me back all those years. Those uniforms and short socks. I feel I could be sitting there but I think I would have been a couple of years ahead - in 5a - and in North Wales  ;D

Intriguing isn't, Gadget. What young girl was cut out of the picture? And why? (I think it would only be one - if the boys at the back have been put in the centre properly.)

Nice one, Pat. A lot of work isn't, repairing 21 of 'em!

My try. :)

Nice work, you two  :)

I'm still doing the detailed work on the middle row as I can only do it in short bursts. Best estimate is Monday!
