This photo of King’s School’s 1933-34 rugby team was brought in by Nick Bason who bought it in a job lot at auction.

Nick is not a former pupil but told the Journal he knew J. H. Nightingale (back, far right) had a farm at Woodnook, and Herbert Pacey (front, far right) went on to become headmaster of Huntingtower School.

Others, from left, back – A. F. Scannall, J. F. Cheesewright, J. H. Martin, J. H. Stevens, G. R. Appleby, H. B. Law, E. W. Pacey and C. J. Hind; middle – A. F. Culley, C. J. Duncan, S. S. M. Nussey (c), T. J. Wild and J. C. Aveling; front – R. H. Peel and L. H. Simpson.
