Many thanks to OOs John Batchlor and Stephen Hodge for sharing the following photos with us.

The first is a picture of of Holbache House pupils with house master Dr Peter Merriman with his wife, children and Matron in 1962, taken in the grounds of the boarding house in Welsh Walls. All members are wearing their Harris tweed jackets that were worn in the school day, with a herringbone suit reserved for Sundays. This is the only known picture ever taken of the House and its incumbents in that generation.

The second photo is Holbache House's winning interhouse football team of 1967 who were a blend of football and rugby players. In 1967 the boys played football and rugby in both Michaelmas and Lent terms.
