n I’M afraid it’s a slightly tatty picture we have for Looking Back this week, but the ‘girls’ on it should still be able to recognise themselves.

They were a 2nd XI hockey team at Rugby High School in the early 1960s.

It was brought in by Linda Roberts (then Vaughan) who is second from the left on the front row.

On the back row she can only name Lynne Haworth, who was second from the right. And on the front row (from left) was Louisa Barraclough, Linda Vaughan, ?, Susan Walduck and Valerie Elsworth.

The picture was taken in the school field at Longrood Road and Linda thinks it must have been her first year at the school in 1961-62, because it had just moved to the new building in Bilton from Clifton Road.

Like generations of Rugby High School girls, Linda remembers they were taught PE by Miss Munden.
