  • Yep!! Know all of the boys in the back row and some of the girls too.Eddie Hoad was tragically killed in a scooter accident on Essex Way sometime in the late 50s John Wolfe was the elder brother of my playmate Sydney Wolfe.Audrey Hunt was always considered hot as I remember and Tony,your sister Valerie was my first great love.I think I was six at the time.

  • Hi Darryl.I’m truly sorry if my post raised bad memories for you ,that was certainly not my intention.I was away at sea when it happened and i was shocked and sad when I came home on leave and heard about it,he was one of a group that I knocked about with when I i was home. Regards geoff Graydon.
