Thanks so much for your contribution Tim. I bet this photo brings back some memories of being an apprentice and the Craft School in 1963?!

The apprentice second from the right in the back row is indeed Peter Skelton who was my apprentice photographer from 1963. Pete turned out to be a more than able photographer and in fact was more than equal to me.

Thanks Brian for adding your memories and to everyone who has helped us add all the apprentice's names to this photo. It's the first photo we've been able to add all of the names to - now all we need some memories of this apprentice intake!

Gidday!  I have just spent a great hour looking at old photos of my times working [sometimes!] at Fielding's, and all my memories are flooding back. If anybody is still alive please contact me asap. Jimbo
