Think he lived on Melbury. There was a commemorative tree outside the main entrance but don't know if it is still there since the school was knocked down. There was also one to a girl who was knocked over riding her bike and, I think, one to Mick Winkley who was killed with his family in France. His brother survved the crash. That's correct about Taff - a great bloke and a traumatic event for our whole year when he died. I think he got a knee in the head in the first half of a match and felt a bit groggy, but played the second half nevertheless. He started to feel unwell that evening and was rushed to head injury unit at Derby hospital, but didn't recover. Head injurys in rugby - still a hot topic more than 50 years later! My brother, Bill, later married Liz. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
