Hasn't dave weston got a brother called Roy & is it true that Digger passed away a couple of years back?
yes mark thats true, roy was a glazier i think, me and dave used to meet him in the manor club along with digger, digger was a great bloke but he once chased me and his brother dave for making him look daft, he had been for a drink in the elm tree and when he came home he asked us to give him a knock at 5 am as he had to be at work for 6

 

we put daves girlfriends make up on him while he was asleep and pinned a picture of superman out of a comic on to the back of his work jacket, we woke him at just turned five and said we had overlayed, he grabbed his workboots slipped on his jacket and shot out of the door to get the rotherham 69 bus on prince of wales road

 

none of his workmates explained why they were all having laughter fits, not until dinner time when he saw his reflection in the pub mirror, then come tea time,me and dave were to be seen running like mad away from a bloke who still had traces of makeup on...:hihi::hihi:

 

digger.rest in peace mate, god bless ya..

When I was there it was Prince of Wales Middle School, 74- 80 ish. It was a great school, I was in Conway the best! And it was a giggle to have a headmaster who`s school letters, reports etc were signed A. Batty Headmaster

The headaster with the slipper was Mr. Cross. Very strict he was. Never had the slipper myself but know plenty who had. Richard Stewart and Michael Topham I think got it for playing truant.
