I remember at Redwell there was a guy called OMO he was a nutter everyone was scared of him, maybe it was HOMO, that would be scary. Anyone remember him I'm talking 1959.

Aye, it was a shock to hear about Deca, but even more so was Paul Millett.
Many of the lads are dying off - Olly, Garters, Deca, Paul M. I'm sure there's more I haven't heard of over here. Sad, really. :cry:

Hello Barney.

It is sad to hear of any death but these are just moving into middle age by modern standards. You mention a lad known as Garters, would that be Paul Garthwaite by any chance?

Hi nesr012;

the Garters I mentioned was Kenny Garthwaite, who lived on Gainsborough Avenue (number 99) from the mid-1960's, and went to Brinkburn from 1970-1976. He passed away a couple of years back, in Sheffield, around Christmas time. He had a long-time relationship with Mandy Barrows before leaving Shields.

I've heard of Paul Garthwaite, but didn't know him personally.

I believe Mandy lived on Raeburn Road, or in that area. Her father was big Brian Barrows, one of the sandblaster crew, and a hard lad with a heart of gold.

Mandy and Kenny had a least one child - not sure if they had more.
