Photo of West Mon visit to Houses of Parliament in the nineteen fifties

I have just received from Geoff Nicolle a photograph of West Mon boys, of Six and Seven Arts, when they visited the Houses of Parliament in the nineteen fifties. I enclose it below together with some notes of the names of most of the boys in it. If anyone has any further details please make a comment.

West-Mon-6th.

On the picture are (left to right) John Rogers, Tony (Sam) St. Dalmas, Dick Cleverley, Keith Vann, J.D.Jones, Bill Jordan, John Clark, ‘Nobby’ Clark (History) – (John’s father), B.D.Jones, Roger Wood (behind Granville West (MP)), ’Oggy’ Mason, Ron Bente, Geoff Nicolle, Alan Brown, Arthur Westren, Tom Morgan, Terry Harper, Neville Cule, A.G.Davies, John Watkins, Deri Lloyd,I have forgotten the names of the one who seems to have a spot on his nose and the third on the far right, Bill Hillier, Jack Haig (Geography)

We had an interesting tour led by Granville Wes. Some boys from the Pontypool constituency went in to watch a debate. We were told they had seen and heard both Winston Churchill and Nye Bevan speak.
Afterwards Nobby took some boys to see a Shakespeare play. Our lot went with Jack to see the musical ‘Call Me Madam’.
I would be interested to see if anyone else in the picture can add more information . Sadly some of my best friends like Terry Harper, John Watkins and Arthur Westren died many years ago. I think John Rogers became a vicar. Deri Lloyd played for Pontypool R.F.C. when he was in 7Arts.
