Thanks for posting this, I remember Henry Meadows, he lived a few doors away from us in the early 1950's in Birkett Bank.

The name of the girl between myself and Robert Fairhust is not know plus it should of course be Brenda Carter not Brendan. If any of the class are out there please make it known, especially if you can identify the missing names. I know that Alan Gaskell has been dead for some years and Vivian Grange (married) emigrated to Australia in the late 70s.

Good heavens John, that's a blast from the past, have you found a time capsule somewhere. There's not half some long forgotten faces on there. If the date's correct we must only have been five years old.
