NIGEL'S PHOTS (results)
Not all have been identified...
Here is the info we have thus far:
Nigel Muir (who sent the photos) wrote:
The first was taken in February 1960 by a photographer for the Sydney Morning
Herald. From left to right, it shows Paul Hohnen, John Harkness and Nigel Muir.
The reason for these Falconians being perched in the boot of Chevy (I think) is
that we had been hitch-hiking at Cremorne Junction in an unusually diligent
effort to reach school during a bus strike and were offered this seating by a
passing driver whose car was already full. The photo did actually appear in the
next day's paper.
The second was also taken by the Sydney Morning Herald. It shows eight NSBHS
cadets getting organised on the train at Grand Central on the way to Singleton
in 1958 or 1959 (I believe it was most likely 1958). I cannot identify
everyone. Third from the left is David Lincey, and fourth is Ken Walker (I
think). Of the three faces on the right of the photo, I can only identify
Graham Birse (at the top) and myself in the middle. I don't recall whether this
photo was ever printed.
Hope these bring back some old memories for some.

Ron - can't yet name all the characters, but recognise myself with the kit
bag - it was in the SMH and my mother still has it proudly displayed!

Unfortunately, the car is easier to recognize than some of
the people. It's a Chev Bel Air about 1957 model.

Paul Hohnen on left and then John Harkness perhaps. No idea about the third
guy. Could the car be a Chevvy.

Who is the unnamed teacher in the backrow between Boardman & Devir?
In the backrow are 14 teachers of which only 13 are named.I recognise Devir 6th on left but is the 5th named.If Boardman is on the left,of
the 4 teachers between Boardman & Devir only 3 are named. Who isnt?
