So, this is a call to all members of the Class of ’61 (forms 1 and 1A, joining in 1956) of Gunnersbury Catholic Grammar School, to get in touch with me at peter.maggs at mirlibooks.com Alternatively, you can respond with a ‘comment’ to this blog.
The register of form 1A is almost hard wired in my head I heard it so often, so in case there is any confusion here is the list as I remember it with some Christian names:
Tony Anderson, Michael Axe, Batters, Tim Bolton, Bradley, Bray, John Brian, Burton, Peter Corey, Chris Dargie, Evans, FitzGerald, FitzSimmonds, Patrick Harvey, Heaney, Martin Hewstone, Dunstan Holden, Ken Howe, Barrie Jones, Kane, Kemp, Kine, Peter Maggs, Frank McCourt, Diarmuid Moloney, John Moriarty, Peter Morris, Gerald Olley, Sharples, Turner and Bernard Wheaton.
Some of the spelling might not be correct, and for that I apologize. Any of you who remember me might also remember that spelling was never my strong suit. Please do get in touch. Sufficient water has ‘flowed under the bridge’ in the last 55 years that any remaining animosities or prejudices should have been assuaged.
Added on 28 May... Here is the approximate class list for form 1, 1956, around 95% correct:

Mitchell, Murphy, O'Rourke, O'Sullivan, Michael Paul, Bob Reeves, Tony Swaisland, Thorton, Bridges, Carter, Clive Casey, Day, Roger Jones, Martin, Tony McCann, Murphy, Mick O'Donnell, O'Higgins, Quinn, Tiley, White, Stringer, Zac.
