Photos of   440  of the 448 boys identified , so far  =   98%.   Names in bold have been confirmed by, themselves or more than one individual.
Note: Re-photographing the panorama as well as illness prevented some boys being present:

"this panorama, which depicts the state of play at the end of Summer Term 1946, was in fact taken at the beginning of Autumn Term because something had gone wrong with the processing. Those of us who had departed to take up our various careers were called back on a three line whip by Nora. Some could not get back, hence some notable absentees. 

The large smattering of sports jackets instead of all blazers is because clothes were still rationed at this time and the clothing coupons would not run to both blazer and mufti so we got special dispensation to wear mufti in school." Keith Tompkins

"What can I say about this photo in spite of the delay in responding.  I was bowled over when I first saw it, scanning along the lines of faces and then finding my image there.  It was a strange feeling, somehow I was back there with my school friends and the masters although I knew it was all years ago.  Who was it said that the past is another country and that people do things differently there?"  Michael King

I cannot find Keith Lovell at all. John Cook.
