The children in this photo went to the Thundersley School, Dark Lane, in about 1938. If your family lived in the Thundersley area before and during the Second World War, then it is likely one (or more) of these children is related to you.
We estimate this picture was taken in 1938 when the children were about nine years old. Many of the names have been recalled in a remarkable feat of memory by Marjorie Iredale (née Horner) and no doubt there are other folk around who can corroborate this information and even help fill in the blanks.
