    Help Needed

    Can't see anything in the online local Nottingham newspapers of 1929 about the club
  2. The Robin A Soar who married Madeleine B Dewhurst in 1962 (found by Jill) emigrated to New Zealand in 1967 with his wife and 2 children. He was naturalised in New Zealand in 1977, date of birth given as 1 Feb 1941 and birthplace as Attenborough, England. Unfortunately he appears to have died in Auckland in 1999

    What was his christian name and what year did he die?
  6. I did my A Levels at BGS in 1975 and passed 3. Don't know the figures for our year, but can think of quite a few who passed 3, certainly more than 9, I would think. Something a bit dodgy, though, about A Level French grades that year!

    Notts County....

    So sad. I'm a Forest fan but was so sorry to see what happened today. Hope they'll soon bounce back

    Nottingham cinemas

    Think this must be the cinema I used to go go in the 70's. They showed arty subtitled European films, often with strange titles - I remember going to see The Goalkeepers Fear of the Penalty - a German film, I think

    Unashamed Political comment

    Documents lost in a fire is often the standard reply concerning adoption - ask for proof

    Who was your first crush on ?

    Think your definition of men to avoid, Jill - immature, rowdy, badly turned out thickos is spot on!

    Notts Schools Trips

    You missed out on a good experience, Jill I went on an exchange visit to France from school when I was 13/14. Very nerve wracking at that age - first time on a plane and having to stay with strangers and cope with the French language all day. Ended up being good friends with my French friend who came to stay with us in Nottm a few weeks later.

    I for one loved school. Grew up on a Council Estate, passed the 11+ and went to Grammar School. Not a perfect school but always grateful for a good education. Both my Mum and Dad passed to go to Grammar School in the early 30's, but neither set of parents could afford for them to go
