and a way of life.

I also worked at Gartons as did my dad who worked there for 40 years. My parents got married in St Peter's Church in 1950.

Looking for IA n

I know this is a pretty long shot but I am trying to find a guy called Ian, his surname I'm not sure of but it may be Deans, Denes or something like that.

He lived in Balham in and around 1967 when he was about eighteen or nineteen. His dad was a copper and the only other information I have is that Ian and some mates went on holiday to Ostend in 1967, possibly 1966.

Not much for anyone to go on but you never know.

Cheers, Roger

Mr Charles L Wallace was my form master in class 5T and I was also in Newton-Macaulay Red house. I left Spencer Park with 2 o levels and took an apprenticeship at Morgan Crucibles in Battersea Bridge Road (long since demolished)

Sun Feb 17

I grew up near Wandsworth common and had a Mr Doughty for science when I attended Graveney secondary school on tooting. I later transferred to Spencer Park School in 1957 and left in 1960, during which time Mr. Doughty joined Spencer Park, although I did not attend any of his classes. Mr N.C. Fischer was a sports master who allowed me to use the swimming pool when I was recovering from a skiing accident on a school trip to Norway. Two of my cousins also attended the school during my time there. I was born in Woking in 1944 where my mother was evacuated from Battersea for the birth. Back at home I experienced the war time air raids aimed at Clapham junction.

re Hi All, I was bought up in Battersea in the fiftys and sixtys my dad had a pub in Nine elms lane nick named the wedge due to its shape but was really called the steam packet the brewery was Meux. it was located just behind the gas works and opposite was a bomb site the pub had two rooms at the top that had been fire bombed during the war and had never been restored as kids it was quite scary to go up there, we used to have to use the public baths down the road. After the pub dad took on a shop at 127 battersea park road opposite Battersea polytechnic and filled it with junk,it was painted blue and called the Bargain shop,does anyone remember it ?.I went to Spencer Park school,it would be great to hear from any of the mates Cavern Curruthers, Harrold McLucus, Abdul Kwaja, Peter Potter, we were born in 1947,would be great to hear from anyone of that time. hope they did well.
