Taffy Williams ...........

The 1st XV 1965 ish? Taffy Williams is the coach and teacher. Names please.

Martin Jones spent some time researching the names - "
Had a spare hour so had a run through my copies of The Bourne. Comments are as follows:
"Rugby photo with Taffy Williams is 1963-4 or 1964-5, more likely the latter. Looks like P E 'Fingers' Simmons in the front row, 4th from right, his nickname came from his cricketing prowess rather than anything else. Not sure about anyone else but following names may prod some memories - Charman, Britton, Jackson, Peters, D E Smith, Bowen, Osborne, Green, Southon, Lyles, Lee, Sparkes, Dean, R G Smith - all in the rugby 1st XV at about that time. Is there anyone out there who can put names to faces?

I can put him out of his misery by publishing the note on the back of the photo:
