Several boys from the homes were in my year at Lydgate Lane School 1948-54.  I contacted one of them on this site about 10 years ago. Melville Deakin. He ran a wine exporting business in America.

Hi Mike,  Seem to have lost touch with some lads that came on here, but did notice you put Melville Deakin,

i knew him as melvin deakin and the boy use to be in No6 house with me and our first house mother was
