  2. Brian1941 I remember the tree very well as I fell off it more than once. I also remember trying to climb the fence at the back of the homes with Tommy Botham but he got his arm impailed on a spike on top of the fence and the firemen had to get him off (Was nasty he still has the scars apparently) Do you remember climbing up inside the outhouse where the dustbins were kept and hiding from Miss Linley?

  10. Silly what is the book that you mentioned is it available to buy and if so where. Mick Davidson worked on the Co-Op mobile stores after leaving school and earned really good money. I was doing an apprenticeship and earned peanuts. He had a brand new 250cc BSA C10 and I had a clapped out old two stroke. At Brook school I was in a skiffle group called the Five Rivers organised by the music teacher a lady whose name I forget. At the height of our fame? we played at the Locarno Ballroom in Sheffield.
