Gedling School Class Photo - 62/3.

Recommended Posts

Wouldn't have recognised anyone from that newspaper clip apart from Dave Green .

Funnily enough the name of Trevor Chaplin just came into my head this morning (before seeing this). Is that him on front row ? I know he was at Westdale , did he go to Gedling or Cavo ?

With reference to post #187 - The photo shows Ronnie Madden on a 1963 school trip to Germany & Switzerland. I could be wrong but I think this might have been the first trip abroad by the Trent bus company.  Here is another photo to hopefully bring back some memories.

These two photo's would have been taken August 4th/5th in Heidelberg and the only two people I can put names to are Philip Shaw on the right and next to him Mr Davies.  His lady-friend/wife is next to him and the dude in the middle with the cigarette was from the hotel and acted as our guide.  It might be Carol Barnes to the right of him but I'm not sure on that. The group was made up from different classes and from different years so names don't readily spring to mind.

29160082472_82fe900636_b.jpgGreat photo....beats my out of focus effort !

We were in an annex to that building that must have been either a kitchen or bakery previously . There was a hatch and when we prised it open we could see the teachers smoking and drinking in the adjoining room . I've mentioned it before but John Frudd and Philip Shaw and others burst in one night to our room and pelted us with black grapes that were growing up the side of the building . Grape juice made a right mess on the bed sheets !

As for that other picture I don't remember going to a castle at all !

I have just read the sad news of the death of Roger Bannister. Though I am not a sport fan of any kind I admire  people who dedicate themselves and accomplish great things and Roger was one of those people. His name has stayed in my memory for another reason personal to me and other old Gedling School pupils, of which I know there are a few of us on NS.

 

We had four houses at Gedling School and I'm sure our NS members will all remember which one they belonged in. Mine was ( as I imagine you have guessed) Roger Bannister, our colour  was Blue. He was the last surviving man that our house names were dedicated to.

 

Names and House Colours

 

Robert Scott 1868-1912, Red. Donald Cambell, 1921-1967, Yellow. Edmund Hillary 1919-2008,  Green. Roger Bannister 1929-2018, Blue.

 

Well Done to them all.

Third from left would be John Haberla if my memory/spelling is correct, so a typo above.  Polish parents and had an older sister Yolande.

As I said previously I played in that team for a few games but don't remember John Haberla but somewhere have a photo with Yolande in it. She went out with one of my pals at Digby College . Lovely girl .

John Landon is on that video, in the red jacket. I remember him in the 60's playing with The Incrowd, think his dad was the manager. He lived off Mapperley Top so probably went to Gedling School. Roger Lymn is also there, he was in Sons of Adam, before they became Sons and Lovers. My good friend Bill Moseley is there too, he was a member of the Beatmen in the 60's. I saw Roger interviewed on TV recently because the HS2 railway line is going through his front room!

Apart from the name John Landon ,I don't know the other names , were they ex Gedling school too ?

Niger Smith & Mick Noble were also in the Incrowd
