I was at the school after it moved to Gleadless. Think Mr Woolhouse's first name was Don - can't remember which subject he taught.

I went to Central Tech just before and just after the move to Gleadless. Old Herbert was Head then. I used to be in awe of John Henry Hunter who had eyes in the back of his head and nobody talked when he left the room!

jolalujois,

There is no doubt about it, we were classmates. If you check your PM, I had tried to send you a message last night in which I mentioned at least six of the names on your list. Question. Is your name on the list? Mine is.

Here are a couple more names.

Darrock Porteous, Harry Schweitzer, Ray Scholey,

It was a long time ago but what great times they were. What are you doing now? Hope you are well.

Regards,

Gerry
