Welcome to the Forum Stephen, keep browsing and start posting with those memories. There are quite a few of us on here who were dragged up born and bred in old St Anns.

Hi Stevie

I was at Blue Bell Hill school until I left, aged 11, in summer 1961, so I just missed you. I expect some of the same teachers were still there in your time - headmaster Mr. Leigh? My last year I was taught by Mr Lowe.

Somewhere else on this site you'll find one or two memories of the school, including a class photo I posted taken in 1960.

Sorry - I thought you meant you were at Blue Bell Hill from 1962. You were well after my time then!

I've just spotted a George Johnson, living in Lincolnshire registering as a member.

 

Are you George 'Johnnie' Johnson, bomb aimer with 617  Squadron, by any chance? Long shot (no pun intended) but if so, this site is honoured to have you as a member.

 

If not, a warm welcome all the same. We look forward to sharing your memories.

And Jill's post prompted me to look at all the people who've registered here over the years with the name George XXXXX.

 

There are 10 others; 7 never made a post or returned after the day they registered.

 

I hope the new George - famous or not - turns out to be an exception to the rule.

Just me getting excited, CT. The Dams Raids have always been a particular interest of mine. I think that particular George Johnson is now the only surviving crew member and I believe he's domiciled in Lincolnshire.  We would be honoured indeed!
