I now have all Room Photo's, but I STILL need the names to fill the blanks under many of them.  Can you help to fill the blanks from your memory?

We later had 'Ollie Hall, Kyi Win and Hla Aye in 14-4, but does anyone remember if anyone moved out to 'make room' for them? I can't think of any moving out, but that would make 21 bedspaces in the room. Any Thoughts?

July 2003 - Thinking on it, perhaps Colin Quinn ( Hospitalised) Mick Stagg, & 'Tom' Finney may have moved out, but that's only a guess.(WebMaster)
