  1. It's been a while since I logged in to this site (2009!). I read Allen's posts in 2013 and 2015 about the hacking and ruination of Steve James FPGS.website. I hope he can eventually renew it. I wrote to Steve many years ago concerning the 1949 pupil intake. I was listed there as deceased in 1960? Steve said he was traveling abroad and couldn't change it. The current version of his site still lists me as dead for the last 56 years! In 2016 I'm now 79, playing tennis singles twice weekly and looking forward to my second marriage in August. I live in Reno, Nevada and have been in the States since 1965. I still fondly remember playing Sunday pick-up soccer in Concord Park and quaffing pints at the Wharncliffe in Firth Park afterwards.
  2. I went to FPGS from 1948 to 1954. Just happened on this site and read a bunch of posts. Knew Spike Johnson well. I'm pretty sure he invented all the ghost stories. He told many in his History classroom in the tower building. I was taught by Joe Over, Holy Joe Fawcett, Mr Parry (I sang in his special choir), Gags Gagan, Drags Draycott, Prods Rhodes, Mr Belton, Bunny Warren, Joe Eker. I remember Duke Wetherill, Arcy, Ken Bown. Classmates included Gerald Brooks (studied Russian, became an interpreter, and was later imprisoned in the Soviet Union before being swapped for Russian spies in England). I remember Mike Elwood, Harry Cousins, Jack Tingle, Don Cartwright, Roy Palmer, John Haddock, Barry Oldham and many others from the 1952 whole school photo which sits on my bedroom wall. I'm on the top row, fourth from the right end. I havn't changed a bit in the last 60 years.
