Thanks to the several correspondents who have written in with names, including Michael Kell for all his family's names.  He tells me that all are alive and well. 7025.307 Also Mo Fredricks and Tom Gregory-Jones who tells me that his relatives are also alive and well. (Nov 11)

Can you identify any more of these children? Are you in this group?

In addition to identifying the children, can you help identify the Priest?  So far we have ruled out Fathers Cremin, Porter, Flannigan and Steffe.

Tersa writes "I think the original Priest at the Oratory was Father Steff (spelling ? ). I feel sure this was not an abbreviation, and my memory is of a well-built, round-faced man always wearing his biretta." 7021.307
Michael says "I remember Father Steffe as an old priest. I don't know who the priest is in the photo but he could have been visiting from the Sunningdale training collage." 7025.108
