  1. Perhaps a bit of a long shot, but I know a few members are former pupils of Chandos St School for Boys, and am wondering if anyone may have known, or remember Alan Brown,from the mid 50s. Lived on Conway Rd and played football for Chandos Old Boys. Sadly Alan passed away last week and the funeral is 25th Feb 2-45 At Bramcote Crem.

  20. I've not long finished writing a "proper" letter to an old friend when my thoughts turned to my courting days, especially the long distant courting, i.e. 4/5 miles, seeing each other only at weekends but with letters in between in our best joined up writing. The letter duly stamped and ready for posting, who never put little initials on the back of the envelope. s.w.a.l.k b.o.l.t.o.p, or even the rather racy b.u.r.m.a, perhaps a few more may come to light.
  21. I remember watching Zulu in 1965, just before going through the Panama Canal on our way to New Zealand we had exchanged films with another ship and thats what we got. The screen was a sheet of canvas rigged between two derricks, the stalls, the aft deck, the millions of stars on a velvet backdrop the lighting, just the gentle noise of the sea, oh, and the sound of a train in the distance.
