   With regard to your Hambrook School photos, I can tell you that in the 1928a photo the headmaster is George Samuel Palmer. He was my great grandfather. His children also went to the school, and all three can be found in the other photos in your list in the years 1928, 1929, 1930, 1936 and 1937. Their names are Frank Palmer, Arthur Palmer and Barbara May Palmer (my Grandmother). All three are still living, Frank in Reading, Arthur in Yate and Barbara in Kendleshire
