Thank you, Steve! The school was a bit like that (King Edward's School rejects- tho' it was my first choice as my dad'd old school -tho' he was removed at 14 to go on the dole 'cos he spent too much time playing soccer and not enough studying!!).
BUT, do I know you, Smithy, under another name? I've lost touch with all my old school mates. One came to my wedding but since then I've seen no-one. My dad has run across a couple since but never remembers to take their address or give them mine!
