Very good to see this old school photograph of my uncle,Jack Fairhurst. He was killed in Imphal,India in May 1944. His sister,my mother,Georgina Turton nee Fairhurst,who died in 2005, left behind some interesting memoirs of her childhood at the Westwood Hotel,Poolstock, and of her schooldays at Notre Dame Convent.

My Dad, Roger Taylor, is in the front row. He died in 2006. He looks just like the kind of pupil you wouldn't want in your class!

Edgar Barry was my uncle and lived in Coppull Lane, unfortunately he died approx 17 years ago aged 72. He was a Weights and Measures Inspector in Wigan Market hall and later Bolton having also worked at Pilkingtons. In WWII he served in the RAF as an Observer Navigator in East Africa, the middle east, India and Burma having trained in Florida with Pan-Am on seaplanes. He was a member of the central Conservative club and Dean Wood golf club for many years. I would welcome any further information about him.
