  4. That sounds like them. Stanley Taylor who was hit in the head with the gun-butt and wounding his friend Mr Lawton who was shot in the thigh
  5. The Sheffield Mob, weren't so gentle. In fact they were brutal. I think they did a house somewhere just over the border in Derby shire and also a house on Cavendish Road in Sheffield which belonged to a market (Potato) trader called Stanley Taylor.

  9. It obviously seems to be a trait of Rowlinson. I was there in 1955 to 1960. And there was a little "B" called (Todge) Askam. He would be prosecuted today for his cruelty. I think he was a Geography teacher, plus assistant head master. The Head Master the was C V Kay who was also a sadistic SOB but not quite as bad as Askam. They have clearly left their Psychological marks on people including myself.
