Re: Rhyddings School 1956

I didn't go to Rhyddings but I am in that age group.
There is only one face I recognise and I don't recall his name - the chap with the 'kiss curl' on the row next to the back.
He was a teddy boy and a west Ender I think.

There are lots of photographs of Rhyddings from that era, and others, on this site.

He was a nice lad, drove a milk float for the Co-op Dairy for a while in the early 60s. We used to meet at silly o clock in the morning when I was running for the bus. I always gasped Hello at him.

I'm nearly sure Derek became a warden of HBC when he finished on the ambulances he was on our Estate, sadly he died a few years go if its the same person, he was a real first class guy and a good friend to the residents
