Yes, Metal work lessons with Mr Callaghan were without doubt the best! English with Mr Sheldrake was Ok! but PE with Morgan stunk! He was a bully!

I doubt Brian will remember me, but in our last year we used the end room up stairs in the block as our form room. Mr Callaghan got me started on motorbikes, he had a very nice Moto Rumi. Because I showed an interest he let me help with servicing it. Mr Roberts our Headmaster had a friend who ran a motorcycle workshop in Kings cross and put in a good word for me. Sadly I only have one photo from 1962 If anyone has class photos of 4b & 4c that time I would love to see them.
