Do I see a young Gerry O'Hanlon (California Dreamin') at the back....possibly Sean McLoughlin 2nd left (not as confident about that one) ??

A long shot.....our own Bandsman (Paddy Luckie) 4th from left standing ???

Do I see a young Henry and McNulty just to the right of Jim McCart ????

(I probably need another trip to Lee's)

spot on Pat...that's our Sean standing beside Jim McCart.

1972 would be about right Liz - our Sean would have been 10 years old then.

I believe this was somewhere between 1973 and 1974 as I was in either P6 or P7. I am more leaning towards P6. The test took place down in Dromore Primary School and I believe I still have the triangluar flag somewhere in the house. I will see if I can find it. I took the test on my bike which was a Raliegh 14 bike (blue) and that Christmas I got it swapped for a chopper.
