The Prescotian Webzine

I have been planning and working on a list of all the boys who were at any time in my form at PGS. My ageing memory being what it now is, completing the list proved to be quite a memory test. There is no guarantee of the list's completeness/accuracy of course! Boys who spent at least SOME time in my form while I was at PGS (1948-1954): I have added a brief comment beside some names.)
1. Alan A'Court
2. Brian Ashall
3. Brian Boocock
4. Brian Nulty (we "swapped" bikes after mine got "twisted" in an accident.) (See notebelow)
5. Cliff Barnes
6. David Baty (we did our Scouts' Linguist badge together, with Mr Scott.)
7. David Hayes
8. Derek Rowlands (always at least one step above me in form position!)
9. Don Moran (died in our first year)
10. Ken Mackie (or his brother)
11. Edward Wright (superb artist/sketcher)

29. Leslie Jones
  30. Micky Curran - a little "strange"
31. P.J.P. Priest (always "envied" his expensive- sounding holidays on the continent).
32. Robert Geddes. Always wore boots rather than shoes.
33. Roy Silcock (my main "sidekick" in "helping" the groundsman Mr.Gurney pick blackcurrants and redcurrants in Mr. Briggs' garden at the end of  spring term, thereby avoiding some class time!)
