Plenty of memories, some good and some not.
'Penny stales' from the baker's shop outside our school. They were the buns and cakes left from the previous day - perfectly edible but wouldn't be bought by anybody but kids!
Mr Hutchens. My teacher at primary school for 2 years. The kids would have run through fire to follow him. Wonderful teacher.
Attending a rural primary school where they still used slates and chalk and the head bragged about never getting "Any RAF kid" through the 11+. Far from good memories there! My brother having to walk to and from school because he was over 8 and the distance under 3 miles. There was no normal bus running in time to get to the school and we didn't have a car. All the older RAF kids had to walk!
