I recently found our Form Photo with Ernie Renshaw and I’m not sure whether it was 4A or 5A, but I have the names on the reverse. No-one signed their Christian name so those I have remembered I’ve put in. So here we go
Back row from the left:
Roy Gregory, Neil Mason, Steve Price, Graham Smith, B Watson, J Beardall, Joe Broadfoot
Next row down from the left:
John Berrill, Robert Grattage, J A Hickling, John Newbery, Stephen Redfern, John A Pemblington, S Oliver, John Stanley
Second row from the front names from the left:
A Clarke, Stephen Lee, Alan Farmilo, David Holt, E B R Renshaw, Albert Pinder, H W (Bill) Wiffen, Chris Wragg, P Savage
Front Row names from the left:
Robert Laughton, R Gibbons, Brian Pickard, Gregory B, Philip Richmond, R Rawlinson, David Williams, Robert Vickers, D Dobb.
I remember going through my school years with nicknames such as “no-neck” & “hunchback” given my two disabilities from birth. (As you see me in the photo with a pronounced left shoulder problem). But that was only from a few and I don’t remember any of my form mates using those names. Memory seems to tell me that we simply got on.
Have I got any names wrong? And is it 4 or 5A? Ernie had his chess club and the store of Brooke Bond tea cards for us to swap. Maths was not my best subject, and I’m not sure what was, but he never gave up!
