Handcross headmaster Mr Scofield retires (2 of 2)

At Christmas 1957, headmaster of Handcross School, Mr Edward Scofield, retired and was succeeded by Mr Frank Hawkesworth.
The pupils were not going to let their headmaster go without a rousing send off and the photograph captures the mood perfectly.
The Large Version shows a close up with pupils numbered. I think the Tooth Fairy has been quite busy in Handcross!
1 Jennifer Faulkner, 2 Dennis Hotten, 3 Jackie Messer, 4 Graham Pateman, 5 Laurence Ray, 6 Peter Wheeler, 8 Janet Housby, 15 Stephen Housby, 17 Jim Beet.
