This smartly-dressed lad is Ryan Gledhill of Saxton, a new Honorary Member of Norwood College, wearing an original cap, tie and scarf of that time though the photograph was taken in October,2004 - so the uniform is about 46 years old!
The cap has a blue rim around the peak and a blue panel beneath the Norwood badge, new features over previous design. Also, the cap style is more like those caps worn by rowing or crickets teams - more streamlined than the earlier design which was more rounded.
The stripes in the scarf now follow the length of it rather than cutting across it as the picture at the top of this page shows.
Thank you very much Ryan!
Here is a picture of the inside of that cap, suitably disguised to hide the real owner's name and any +40 year-old remains of fag-ends.
An optional black blazer was also introduced in the 1960's; the reason may have been to do with the viability of Horne Bros. stocking large quantities of Norwood striped blazers as of course by then demand was steadily decreasing and a more generally available alternative had to be found. The Harrogate supplier of uniforms, Allen's was gradually phased out but Horne Bros. continued some time after.
