Yes I think it is Mr. Whitehead I was in his class the following year in 1958. In 1957 I was in Miss Gray's class so that must be her in photo no 2. I didn't know Mr. Thompson but I had Mr. French, Mr Brown and Miss Mckrill as class teachers. Not sure who the two infant teachers I had were, might of been Miss Gulley or/and Miss Watson.

Mr Thompson photo's 10 and 14.

He was a ferry pilot during the war and once crashed a plane onto a frozen lake in Canada. Apparently the plane slid across the lake and ran into a snow pile. All the crew escaped unhurt. Leaving late from school one day, I found Mr T. in the ditch that ran down Dark Lane. On enquiring what he was doing he said,

'Digging for worms. I'm taking my Dad fishing tomorrow(must have been a Friday). Would you like to come?" Obviously I said yes as I'd never fished before. He told me where to go and at what time. Long story short, I caught 3 Carp, he caught a cold. I've never caught a fish since, but have managed to get my pilots certificate, not that I'll be flighing bombers any time soon.

Hello Eddie, hope all is well at your end. I used to live on the Caravan site and we would hang around together. I have fond memories of you and your "crow" sitting on the handle bars of your bike. My name is George Whitehead and in 1964 I emigrated to Canada.

If you get a chance contact me and we can go over all the old times together.

Take care, George
