I attended B.S.B.E. in the 1940/50 and help to make the stained glass window of the Royal Pavilion the art master was Eric Mckinley known at school as Erik Kinley. He won a prize for designing the fake money for the show “Zip goes a million” Somewhere I have a picture of the window and of course I wonder what happened to the window Fellow pupils I recall were:-Stuart King, Bill Harvey, Mark Dudney, Brain Moser, Colin Thomas.
These pages need to be more open so we can get messages from people instead of trying to remember to look at posts we made ages ago.
I attended Finsbury Rd School from 1934 to 1941 I lived in Lincoln St. Not many of us left ! Anybody remembers the toy shop in Southover St opposite Southampton St I think it was run by two ladies Miss Foote and her sister.
Ok, I will be in touch by email.
I have spent the last three years writing a biography of George Gouraud and could answer everyone’s enquiries, had I time and space! I have only just stumbled on this site, so this is something of a knee-jerk posting, but the story is a fascinating one – so much so that 40,000 words on, I have a deal more to write! Watch this space…!
I am trying to find the Maslin family, who were living in or around Brighton in the 1930’s. One member of the family was a young woman called Paddy. This young woman is mentioned in my late grandfather’s diaries and I would like to know what became of her.
