Photo from John Kitchener

Roy D Christon Radford House 1951


John Kitchener I was at Wyre Farm from 1951 to 1954 and I think the photo was around 1952. I was in Radford Dormitory and Mr Musgrove was the master. I am second from the right. the good looking one. My Cousin Peter Storrie was also in the same dormitory but at the other end.

I remember a big lad called Judge who now lives in Leyland Lancashire, and another lad called Franze muller but I have no idea where he is nowerdays. I am retired, 73 years old and live in Thornton Cleveleys Lancashire. I spend a lot of the summer in my static caravan in Brecon South wales.
Nice to hear from you.
Kind Regards
John Kitchener

Roy D Christon Just found my school reports for 1951/53 teachers were Daddy Hadfield. Mr Ham, Mr Richards, Mr Martin Headmaster.

Mad Carue I remember Daddy Hadfield, Mr Martin, Mr Cosgrove, Lambley and Langley , I was in Radford but can’t remember the Masters for certain, The names Ham and Richards ring a bell but that’s all.

Roy D Christon Daddy Hadfield was housemaster in Radford House the low numbers. 





Nigel Tuckey SS Uganda.

Dill Holmes Correct, docked at Malaga l think. 
Lisburn was the first stop, I can't remember which year though, more likely 70.

David Stuart Think you are right 70 remember Chris Green nearly through me overboard because I fixed his deckchair to collapse and he trapped his finger in it.

Nigel Tuckey I was on another one in December 71. We flew and toured around Venice before the ship left for Athens, Rhodes, Haifa, for Jerusalem & Bethlehem, and back to Venice.

Adrian Rosenlund Hudson There was also one in the late 70's, which i couldn't go on, but Jon Steane did.

Jon Andrew Steane Yes I did go on one, but it was March 1980, started in Yugoslavia, and went to Cyprus, Turkey, Santorini, Crete and finished up in Venice. George and Mrs. Parker went along to keep us under control. Now if I remember correctly there was Mark Babb, MarkShekespear, Rob Wood and Aubrey Wood, Mark Watson and Dean Watson, plus two more whose names escape me. Oh yes and I remember Sally Watson, not from the school but from Alcester. And I wonder if one of the other guys (who shall remain nameless to protect the guilty) remembers Mandy Bond?

Mark Shakespeare I remember that as well. Got us away from School for a while. if i am correct, we also went to Egypt. We docked in Alexandria and visited Cairo and saw the pyramids.

John Billing no, but I have vague memories of canoeing down the Wye...

Stuart McDonald John, canoeing down the Wye was the only trip I recall. Fishy Place ran it and I think Grubby Mush Harper was the other staff member on the trip. I was in a canoe with Phil Stevenson.

Keith Ison Steve Mosey second from left middle row Pennington front row with stripped top.

Dill Holmes Harkin front left?

Keith Ison Yes looks like Steve Harkin his older Brother Rich was also at the school.

Photo Stuart McDonald

Stuart McDonald I believe it was likely 63 or 64, but don't have a date on the back of the photo.

Deli Kurbaga Mick Oh Yes Brings them Flooding Back up Clee Hill on a Sat with your Packed Lunch. Pack of sausages from the village Shop, light the fire and cook them up there. Great Times.

Stuart McDonald I can confirm it was the side of Dudley House, I was in Dudley.


Christopher Applebey The path in the foreground leads to a gateway onto the roadside footpath. Just before it is a bench. Those of us who attended Methodist chapel (just to the right of where the dark car is parked in the middle of the photo) would wait on the bench until the one Methodist teacher (Baz (Ollie) Matthews) would turn up and then go in. If he didn't we'd bunk off church! Non-Conformists 1, C of E 0.

Photo from Andy Gibson

Andy Gibson Yeah, that pic was '78 or '79 I think. Colour was the new black, as it were!!!

Hadrian Wall Speaking of old technology, does anyone remember Mr. Rowlands coming into the class with a tape recorder and asking each pupil to state his name? I was horrified at how I sounded. It was the first time I had used one.

Tony Baker That looks like Arley where railway goes over river Seven.

Andy Gibson It could well be, Tony, as I remember a trip to the Severn Valley Railway.

Martin Hull Victoria Bridge, Arley.

Tony Baker Yes I remember him, same class. Wally Clarke took us through from 2nd, 3rd and fourth year. John Davies is also in the picture, on the right of Dave Scrivens looking from front.

Ken Hammond He was House Master of Blount, before Jim Lovatt. He had a spaniel that would find dirty socks in your locker.

Tony Baker Spaniels name was Descant, now how's that for a memory.

Ken Hammond Amazing, I remember that if someone got 'the slipper' off Clarke, you could see an imprint of the Dunlop 'badge' on their backside.
