Fox hunt in Slaugham

I moved to Slaugham from Canada with my parents, Bill and Lorraine Jones, and we lived in Jenners, next to the Chequers pub, from 1963 to 1966. I had two brothers, Mark who was 18 months older and Mark who was 7 years younger.
I went to Handcross school from 1963 and then to Warden Park school in 1965.
The above photograph was taken sometime during our stay in Slaugham and shows the fox hunt passing by the Old Rectory. At that time the house was the residence of Thomas Dundas, MBE, former director of Barclays Bank, and his wife Isabel.
There is an excited boy in the middle of the picture and I am wondering if it was Mark Botting from Carpenters Arms Cottages. Please can anyone help with the identification?
