I'm sorry to hear of Martin's death. He was before my time but I have heard his name mentioned many times. RIP.

The ? Jones in the OP's rugby photo (? late 1950's / early 1960's) next to Paddy Collins is Mr D (? Derek / Dave?) Jones who was a teacher at Purley when I arrived there in 1960. He was a PE teacher but also taught English and, perhaps rather surprisingly, Latin, although, since I had Ed Stachak all the way through to my GCE year, I was never taught Latin (or anything else) by Mr Jones. I think he may also have taught RE but I can't confirm this.
