RGS High Wycombe: Boys in the 1956 photo

I have numbered each boy according to the Picture, Row (A (top) to H) and numbering from the left.
E.g Mr Tucker is Picture 3, Row F, Number 10 and therefore earns the coordinates 3F10. (Clever stuff, eh?)
A question mark by a name indicates uncertainty, corroboration or otherwise welcome.
My thanks to all who have helped me with the identifications.
Click here for a list of contributors
Some of the identification will be guesswork. Please let me know if you can confirm identification, Christian name, spelling etc. I apologise if I do not know the Christian names, but RGS was like that wasn’t it?
Likewise let me know of any errors
Please email me to add yourself (together with a potted history if you’re not too modest) and others to the list.
