Memories 

George Haley

Good Morning, I managed to attend with no distinction whatsoever Bristol, Croydon and finally Southend on Sea, which you don't mention strange to say. I do recall Croydon especially when looking at the 'blockhouse' photo. Bristol I didn't recognise the outside but it fits with my memory of the classroom I occupied. I can only remember a few names from Croydon, Martin Devonish or Devonshire and a lad called Gaillard [pronounced Guy-yard]. I also remember the headmaster but not his name and an English Teacher a Miss Armstrong I always thought she was very attractive, that I do recall. From Southend I seem to recall a red haired lad with a family name of Butler whose father owned a Garage on the Arterial Road just past Jones Corner towards the Eastwood side. Also, a Sports Day at Prittlewell Park. I don't recall the dates at the moment other than late 50's early 60's. My father was a musician and we moved all the time probably that is why I do not remember many other pupils. I would be interested in any photographs of Southend, it was situated on the main road into the Town Centre, I think it was Victoria Avenue. All a bit vague but that is why I am looking to find any memory triggers. Hope some of the info was useful, all the best,

George Haley
