St. Chads 1948/49
2nd. Year Boys.
These boys came from Chadwell Primary; Landsdown Road; Manorway. Some lived the dream, that several had, and became merchant seamen. Now, those elderly gentlemen can still get together at the MN Club, Community Centre, Civic Square, Tilbury.
The daily class register call would have sounded something like:- Allberry; Arthur; Baldry(G); Baldry(J); Barness; Berry; Blamey; Bradley; Burns; Carver; Cook; Fairchild; Faulkner; Fordham; Gent; Gibbons; Grant; Hodge; Ingasole; Jenkins; Jones; Nelder; Pizzy; Pudney; Pulfer; Read; Rednap; Russell; Salmon; Seeley; Shamp; Smith; Tible; Wiffin; Worrell.(Apologies to those missed out or mis-spelt, and thanks to John Gent, who like me is in the front row, for the face/name recognition).
Hope you can see yourself, or can find your Dad, or Grandad.
