Isn’t it great how something unexpected comes out of the blue…
I received an email from one of my oldest friends [oldest not in age because he’s younger than me, but in years we have known each other]. Attached to the email was a picture of our school building – Wembley Independent Grammar – which no longer exists. The site was demolished many years ago and in its place is a whole “new” housing estate.
Looking at the photograph brought back a flood of memories: I certainly made some good friends, and I sometimes wonder what happened to the majority of my classmates. The only one I have remained in contact with is Tony [he who sent the photo]. Seems Tony might have found this in the following website, as I just stumbled upon it myself: http://www.friendsreunited.com.au/school/Memory/a2c592b3-4b74-483e-a89a-a0e30107cb83 The link is of the school pupils and teachers. I’m there somewhere: I think I was at the end of the back row. Tony actually has a copy of the photo at his home [I lost my copy years ago], but what a great find. I will have to join the website and see if I can track down my friends from my senior school, Christs College Finchley which I went to in 1969/70……… what fun!!
