Yes I was there-a bit before you time though.I left in 1952 and 6 weeks later I was in the RAF.They called it National Service...a salutary awakening I can tell you. The schools website shows a great number of photos throughout the years.Iam on some of them notably the 1st year Sixth 1951/52 .Some of the lads have unfotunately died over the years.However my best friend standing behind me with the "Huron" haircut is still my best friend!!

Hey,
My old school too! I left in '81 so you were a bit ahead of me.
Room 4 was my second home, shudder....

Ah - good ol' Room 4

Post by Barney » Wed Jan 03, 2007 3:37 pm

I remember it well, although I was there 1971 to 1977.
I was known as Barney then, and had mates like Olly, Clag, Sos and Vou-bag. The infamous 3S-4S-5S Flock!

Harry Wake used to reside in Room 4, too, and Zoony (aka Mr Smith).
Tunnicliffe was just Year Master at that time.

Jimmy Emerson - God rest his gin-pickled heart - was my main protagonist - I had a few stripes from him!!

And then there was Miss Drake and Miss McDonald, who made it all worth while!!!

T'is my almer mater too, 1967 to 1975 (long story about that tenure)

I made it up the ladder all the way to "The Boss" (Bill Egner), only took three off him, but never went back. Jimmy Emerson had a good swing but the sting was short lived.

Your mate Sos was here a couple of days ago Barney, I let him know where you are and what you are up to (known him since we were four :oops: )

Anyone know the Hall brothers who attended the High School over several years. Names, Peter Hall, Adam Hall, John Hall, Holdon Hall, Gilbert Hall. They all lived in South Frederick Street for many years.

The names Adam and Peter Hall ring a bell, but I don't recognise the others. Sorry baldy.

Peter and Adam were the oldest, so I reckon they would have left the school in the very early fifties. They were a large family of five boys and three girls and into the "Salvation Army" in a big way. All of the girls attended the Girls High School.
The girls were named Ann (I think) then Jessie and Cathy (the twins).

Hi baldy-smith,
We corresponded a while back but I had lost your email address during hard drive and o.s. changes. I am Gilbert, the youngest Hall aged 65. Then it is John, Holden, Adam, Jessie, Cathie her twin, (who died in 1991), Peter, Betty and Bob. I still cannot put a face to you but I did notice, before I had registered, a family photo on this site but I couldn't enlarge it. What info. would you like?

Knew it was you straight away Gil when I read your comments on the Marchers photo.

Lost your email address in a similar way to you. My last computer blew up and almost set the house on fire.

So you're 65 now eh! just a mere lad :lol:

I think I'm the same age as your brother Adam.

I'll dig out an old photo of myself which was taken in the 1950s. It may help you remember what I look like although I doubt it, Ill put it in the photo gallery.

Welcome to the site anyway. There are a lot of nice people on here but like anywhere else on the net we have the odd loose cannon. You can form your own opinions as to who they are.

I'm not seeking any information at the moment but I will let you know when I do.

I haven't looked down this end of the menu very often! :shock:

Hi folks. I was incarcerated in that establishment from 1960 to '65.

Have you investigated the unofficial school website (for us oldies) at:

http://www.ssgtsfb.info/

Much information available there, along with many photos.

Who's fault was that then?

All right lads?!
Jimmy Emma was Ok and a war hero. He never liked giving anybody the stick, and I think he always felt bad about it at the time, and later. Something to do with his time in Burma I think. For the record, he got into the habit of drinking G&T in the Far East because (as he explained to our 4th Year Geog. group) the more fluid you drink in humid countries, the more you sweat. Also the quinine in tonic water was a necessity to protect against malaria. He was always very fair with me, although he did give me a few whacks. Let's be honest, these blokes had seen, lived through, and then had to deal with, horrors that we can't even begin to imagine. Today it's called PTSD, and is treated. What help did these blokes get? When I was 7 or 8 I remember seeing a poor soul lying in a gutter in Roman Road, obviously dead drunk, although I didn't know it at the time. I went up to him and asked if he was all right, to which he mumbled incoherently. Across the road, an old lady came out and went to help him. She said, "He's all right, he's just been through a lot." I never found out who that man was, and it wasn't until much later I found out what 'a lot' actually was. Thank God for Jimmy Emma and his kind.
