It did when they tucked their skirts into their knickers to do hand stands.

I sat near the window overlooking the playground. Needless to say my concentration wavered a bit when the girls were doing PE. Happy days

Anyone remember the shops that used to be on Lindsay Road 1950's. first shop was Hirst's. They had a daughter Josephine I think here name was. Was at Lindsey Road School with her.

Bottom shop was Co-op. In between there was a chip shop, paper shop Burgoyne's I think the name was. Cannot remember the others

Mine were navy blue too.   At a school in London as part of our PE lessons we had to run through the streets in our knickers and Aertex tops ....  😂

We all used to hate it and what made it worse was that we used to run right past my mom and dad's newsagents shop.  I remember if my dad saw us he used to stand and laugh at us.   😂  😂  😂
