  1. HI Phil, one of your posts that has intrigued me for sometime is the one in which you refer to the Barry Fisher Incident.Can you recall what year this was, what was written and was the boy expelled?

      Yes, got that. I knew Dawkins and Reddish as they were in the same form. Not seen them since 1961.

      I would think about 58 to 60. He wrote a long derogatory piece about ‘Pig’ Hutchinson, the geography master, and pinned it up on the notice board in the 5th form corridor. He was expelled. Barry was a good lad. I used to run with him in the senior cross country team. What he wrote was probably true but he must have been seriously upset by something to make his feelings so public.

  3. Good Morning Phil, I do not recall your name so maybe I was in the year below you.My birthday is in December so I would not have been 11+ until 1955 so would have taken the exam that year I assume. Some names I remember from my year are David Randall Norman Swallow Billy Thomlinson  all from Hucknall Mick Chambers Jack Chambers and Chris Draper from other areas of Nottinghamshire . I like you enjoyed my time at the Mellish and am grateful for the start it gave me to the rest of my life.

      Yes Geoff, it looks like you were in the year below me. Some names I remember from Hucknall were Mike Carson, Richard Bullock, Keith Dawkins, Brent Reddish, Allan Bell (father ran Terminus Garage). Ring any bells?

  4. Thanks What I know about about computing would fit easily onto a postage stamp.On a lighter note I always knew 1943 was a vintage year.

      I’m also 1943 so must have been at Mellish the same time as you.
