When Denise Pinard (Banfield), walked in to my office recently I sensed that she had something important to say....and boy, did she ever......."Here are some old team pics of the Forest Reserve School that might mean something to you, as I don't know most of the people but thought that you might". The pictures are all framed on their original settings and I was lucky enough to get some fair reproductions without having to disturb their settings at all. The old typewriter wording, the homemade backing sheets of old bristle-board or manila files themselves are of value if their link to the past is to be preserved. I have reproduced the pictures as best I could, and grouped them as they are framed. Hope that you enjoy them as much as I did.
Just based on my own recognition the following are pictured standing from left - Christian "Dobby" de Verteuil, Robert May, David Gammon.
Kneeling from left - John Archer, ??, Richard "Roughy" Rostant, ??, ??.
Sitting at front from left - ??, Jeffrey "Lanny" Govia, Peter Rostant, Leon da Silva, ?? Rostant, and Michael "Cacashat" May.
