This may look like a scene straight out of the Just William books, but it is actually of Spitalgate schoolboys back in the 1940s.

Pictured, from left, are a young Desmond Hides, Barry Cox, Brian Matsell and Garry Miller.

The nostalgic snap was brought in by our regular contributor, Michael Matsell.
