*** UPDATE - Thanks to T-J Hitter for explaining the Jock Ford Photo ***
"I Think Jock Ford left in about 1974. The trek was an annual trip run
by the boy's school by the late Mr Moore and the biology teacher with a
foreign name to Romania. I can remember watching a film of it in
assembly accompanied by Mike oldfield Tubular Bells."
I am not sure who sent these in but they have been languishing in the

Class of 1945
Anyone still around from the war years, I went to Sharmans Cross Boys
in 1940 and left in 1945. The Headmaster was Peter Orret, a
disciplinarian, very strict, but he taught us respect, and where
necessary, manners. Other teachers who come to mind, Messrs Peppitt,
Parker, Horseman, Charles, Madames Bootand Gardener. We were
all caned on a regular basis for minor misdeeds.but it certanly did not
do me any harm, and I probably deserved it anyway.
I was given a sound basic education at Sharmans Cross,and encouraged to
go on to further education,which I did.
The girls were taught upstairs and played in a separate playground from
the boys, I think the idea was to stop us getting distracted.
If there are any re unions in the offing, I would like to hear from
you, and if any old boys and girls would like a little talk on life at
the school during the war time years,School dinners! live ordinance,
what went on in the air raid shelters during air raids!! (not a lot I
can assure you) . We had four "Houses" named after well know local
families.Odingsells (red) Archer (blue) Greswolde (green) Hawes
Well thats a window of life at the school during the war, if you want
more just let me know.
