  • Hi John
    Was a surprise to hear that you live in Australia. I haven’t found myself in the photograph yet but I remember it being taken. I remember your mum and dad, your brother and your grandad. We had some great times down your dad’s place with the workshops, playing with motorbikes and there was always a boat under construction somewhere. You had an Enterprise and I think your brother had a Merlin Rocket. We used to go to your place at Brandy Hole sometimes as well.

  • Hi Gerald and also Alan, a lot has no doubt happened since we last knew each other 58 years ago! I became a carpenter/builder in Sydney Australia, retired to the “bush” in 2000 to 7 acres of land and built my own place, got involved in the Bush Fire Brigade and ended up a Deputy Captain and driver of the local fire truck and at the same time fell in to earning a bit of a living from my hobby which is computers. I am known as “The Computer Doctor” up here in the mountains west of Sydney now.

  • I remember you John from school – also friends with Derek Keele/Kiel? & Pete Irvine. I’m in the picture – second window from the left, third row down with hair flopping over my face. Don’t have any hair now! My brother Graham also lives in NSW.

  • I should have gone to Specsavers! I have just blown the picture up and it turns out that I am number 25 from the left on the top row and I seem to have gained a sister! That is not Maureen third from the right on the bottom row! Apologies – my mistake.

  • Hi Gerald, it cannot be your sister bottom row 3 in, as that is me,
    Val Harris (Barber). The first one in is Jennifer ?, the 2nd one Wendy Miles, and me 3rd.

  • Hello John. Do you remember me? I used to serve you and your mum in Nix Chemist. I am in the photo, 10 along in top row on right. My sister Maureen is on bottom row, 3 in from right. This photo taken a couple of months before I left. I was in Mr Butlers class the last year.
