Barry writes: The forms were 1S (headed by 'Sid' Saunders) and 1T headed by 'RAT' Taylor). These later became 2S and 2T before merging into 3L (for Latin under 'Punch' Lawrance) and 3T [Trevor Parfitt says T for Taffy Thomas rather than Tabraham]. I am very sure about Chris Southgate and Andrew Nunn. They were close friends - we formed the 'ABC' club after our initials. We used to organise football and cricket matches between our respective villages (Soham, Burwell and Newmarket) in the school holidays and cycle to each others village to play them. We also played in the first chess match the school played in ( I can provide some details of the early SGS Chess Club, if you would like). I am certainly not aware of Wally being a nickname for David Register, although I have a vague memory of that being the nickname for his younger brother, Richard. He also had an older brother, Alan, I believe.

sources: Michael Clark, Barry Lowe, Philip Oakes, Terry Lupson, Trevor Parfitt, Tony (Richard) Sharp: * = are also listed among the 1954 entry.
David Cross says a number of the above were in their third year in the Sixth Form.
It would be really helpful to be able to borrow the School Calendar & Lists for 1955, 1956
