Miss Tugwell's class c1952/53

By Derek Ost

I noted with interest Barry Planks photo of Miss Budd's class.  Although I cannot recall Barry, he and others of our generation may find the attached photos of interest.

This is Miss Tugwell's class c1952/53. If this date is inaccurate, no doubt my old class mate, Robert Niblett, with whom I am still in touch, will put me right.

Can you recognise yourself, or anyone else here? If you can, please leave a comment below.

Front row: ?, Robin Hemsley, Alan McKenzie (not sure), Peter Whitcomb, Terry Porter, Ricky Harrison,?, Des Ost, Michael Preston, ?. Some of the other names seem to be on the tip of my toingue and I may recall them later. Vicki Moffit? Pauline Campbell? Good luck - hope someone else sees this and can name a few more.

Would anyone mind if I transfered these names to the same photo we have on the archive section of our school website? Tracey Bowers - Hertford Infant and Nursery School

I certainly don't mind. Since the posting I haven't remembered anyone else though, except between Jennifer James and Teresa Graham is perhaps Jackie Clark?

I have just seen this class photo - I am in the middle row, 5th child from the right!

I'm 2nd row, 2nd from right

Amazing. I'm standing fourth from the right in the third row. These were happy days, the family had not been back from South Africa that long. And after a few short terms in rough schools in Hove, all three Winch brothers, John, Paul, and Michael attended Hartford Road Junior School and then passed on to Varndean Grammar. Does anybody remember the teachers there then? 'Bubbles' Wiley, 'Slash' Dellar, Foster (with his metal edged ruler over the knuckles), The little, red-haired, Mr Tough. Mr Cain, who taught religion and boxing. etc. My form master then was a Mr Thorne by far one of the nicest of the bunch. When one of my brothers turned up there, somebody made the comment, "Oh no, not another Winch." Claim to fame? Not sure about that. And, I certainly remember the name Robert Niblett, so Robert if it's possible, I would love a copy of this picture. Contact me on the message board of my web-site please. I will then give you my e-mail address. www.john-winch.de

Front row, end nearest the doors, I am sure that is my brother Roger McCabe.
