Jimmy, If I had to guess where you were on the photograph, I would say, fourth from the left, back row.
Albert,that is Dave Holland from Repton Ave Spring View.I am first on left middle row next to Tommy Medows.
Hi Jimmy. I can see the Edwards likeness. Smartly turned out. I took papers down Repton Avenue, My first street of delivery, from Tatum's paper shop. Didn't you have a relative who served in the R.A.F.,during the war. He was an air gunner? I know his surname is/was Edwards. My dad knew him well. I met him a couple of times. Have you a relative named Margaret? I'm sure she went to St Mary's school, the same time that I did.
Albert,my Dad,(Miah Edwards) born Ainscow St 1923 served in RAF during Second World War in Burma,will try put some photos on site.not to sure about Margret will ask pur Billy.
Great pictures Jimmy. I had a mate called Kevin Weaver who, I think, went to Spring View school. Can you put any names to the lads in any of these three photos?
John,go on Spring View School Kevin is on a picture stood on back row near our Keith
Jimmy. . . Back row - second from left?
john,it's the 1964 photo Kev on right back row.
Got him. Thanks a million Jimmy, you're a star. His hair was a darned sight longer when he started work at Eckersleys with me (hee hee). Thanks again.
john,no problem,waiting for more photos to come on, will name who I can.
Jimmy the photo I put on S.V 64 was your billys last year at school your Keith and myself did another year with moss lane I was mates with themall my school days I lived in the same row as Mrs Penningtons off license do you remember the shop.
Jimmy. Having thought about it. It is highly likely that it was your dad that I referred to, (the airman). it would have been about, 1941/1942. He was probably on leave from. R.A.F. training, before being posted out to the far east. One evening My dad, and I, and the airman, whom I believe to be your dad, we all walked home together, to Spring View, probably from the Regal Cinema, in Lower Ince.
Owd Viewer,Used to go to Mrs Penningtons on Friday night with our spends when our Dad come home with his wages.
Albert,could be right there,think it was about 1940/1when Dad joined up he was 19/20 years old.Have got photos of Dad in Burma will get them on here.Regal Lower Ince spent loads of Saturday Mornings in there.
Jimmy. They would have conscripted your dad in 1941, when he was eighteen, if as you say he was born in 1923.
The lad on the back row left looks like Ken Green.
Bill, long time since I've seen him but I think your right.
Jimmy. Relating back to the Regal. They finished building it, just before the outbreak of war, in 1939. It was a great asset to the local community.
