Six Unidentified School Children

SS_With_QueriesThis picture of the 1947 Kilmore State School class was published in ‘Kilmore Connections’ with a plea for identification. Most of the students have now been identified, thanks to Alison Thomson, but six remain without names. Alison has suggested that some of the unidentified children may have been visitors rather than long-term students at Kilmore.

Back row – Kevin Maher, Gordon Wilkie, Ron Lingard, unknown, Margaret Suttle, five unknown.

Middle Row – Dawn Buckley, Pam Clarke, Margaret Johnson, Nola Chapman, Lucy Crew, Malcolm McKenzie, Ron Goodman.

Front Row – Des Lingard, Tony Davern, Dorothy Buckley, Dianne Clarke, Robert Elliot, Alan Berry.

If anyone has any memories of the unidentified, we would love to hear from you.
