“Bardy” Wilkinson was the headmaster when I was at school and I was also taught by “Freddie” Waugh. Fred Young and my brother Arthur, married two sisters Molly and Eileen Lacey. Frank Richardson used to bully me for some reason, Joss smith used to be on the school football team and George Jaques was my barber and kept a shop on the Green.

I was one of these children five years later. How I hated not being able to see out. I expect it was good for me as I was always dreaming out of the window. Nature was always more interesting than learning Tables. I remember the smell of the newly built air-raid shelters on the land below the school ( concrete and newly sawn timber ) and the “big boys ” bringing in the frozen milk, the cardboard tops pushed up on a column of ice. I wonder where we all are today in our eighties. Shirley (Bailey).

As I said when I saw this photo on Facebook, it was definitely not taken between the years 1935 -1938. I recognise several of the kids here, including myself, and I estimate the year the photo was taken to be somewhere between 1952 and 1954. Also when I saw the photo on Facebook via my tablet I had a stab at providing some names, but now I have had a look on a larger screen, I realise that I might have got a couple wrong. Apologies for that.

Ken Lee, I am afraid you got it wrong this time, this photo was about 1935/7 as I recognise Eddie Lennon, Willie Flaxington and quite a few more and they were only in the class above mine and by 1952 I was married so either you are mistaken about the dates before you looked on your tablet or you don’t recognise your own photo.

The truth of the matter is that these two photos were taken years apart. My comments relate to the top photo and Janet O’Carroll confirms my observations. I may be getting on a bit, but I can still recognise my own photo!!

I am afraid that you are both wrong with the dates gentlemen. Image V886 was originally posted on our previous website as Photo ID: D378 and dated as 1935/1938 and to which your comments refer. I can date this image to 1932, as it was given to me by my late father who is seated on the second row, fifth from the left, when he was then coming up to eleven years old. I also refer to Photo ID: S52, dated 1931, on the previous page. Walter Sutcliffe, third row, second from the right, was a year older than my father Jack Brayshaw, shown in the 1932 photograph. Jack Brayshaw was 10+ yrs old then and when war broke out in 1939, he was just old enough to enlist which he did. My father and Walter remained friends throughout their life and even lived on the same street in Rawdon after the war and sadly where they both died.
