Identifying the pupils: The picture has the names of the pupils written at the bottom and, making allowances for handwriting,  it has been possible to match all surnames with the 8th edition of the Haileybury Register . In a few cases the initials on do not match the full name given in the register - and where this has happened it has been noted.

Dating the picture: All the pupils where there is no uncertainty in initials were there for the Summer 1914 term with one exception. The exception is Terence Howard Tatham, who joined in the Autumn term. However his brother was already at the school and he may have joined towards the end of the summer term.

Photographer: Soame, Oxford. - The image is of high quality as this detail shows:
