Start the ball rolling with the obvious - John Lennon.

Experience suggests newscaster Peter Sissons may well be in there but can't say which one?

Lennon is correct Bern. Peter Sissons has his hand on John's right shoulder.
The boy with the clenched fists thinks he is funny "Boom Boom"

Is correct.
The tall boy at the back right was an exceptional footballer who could have had a World Cup winners medal but chose to get married instead. Met him on a number of occasions at my local in Lydiate.

It is Bern.
Photo taken on a school trip to the Isle of Mann 1951.
All born in 1940.
Think that you will agree a cracking photo and that it had four 11 year olds who would go on to be household names for various reasons.
