Philip Amos who is first on the right, has identified Brynley Allen as second from the left, and Christopher Arnell as third from the left.  Philip is not sure but thinks that the lad who is first left could be Frances Flynn.

Thanks to Stuart McArthur for these scans, he said "Whilst trying to find some photos, I came across a sheet of paper where most of the more senior boys had written their names and "nick-names" etc."  Stuart's other photos can be seen here

Thanks to Angela Mack for these three photos.  Taken in one of the Houses where her brother stayed after the family returned in 1968 to the UK, so that he could finish his 'O' Level Curriculum, and sit them at St. Johns.  See Angelas' other photos here, and also her Singapore in the '60s photos.
