  Comments The site won't let me register for some reason. I'm looking for anyone who went to St John's C of E primary school 1963-1969, then Pemberton Boys School 1969 - 1974. The senior school turned into comprehensive, I think Mesnes Community School, not sure. If you were there then, or know someone who was, please e-mail me at bradder.ab@gmail.com. Thank you.

  Comments Hello Alan,
Thanks for your reply. I've been in Canada for 50 years. Lived and worked in Toronto for twenty years, then moved to a small town in Midwestern Ontario, finally moved into the country proper, living in a former farm house, last year.
I was indeed in the photo you mentioned you had been given by Mr.Studdert (what a terrific person he was).I was in Form 2A, second left, front row. I have fond memories of Mr Studdert, even though he advised me, in fourth form to give up on studying Latin! I visited him a couple of times after leaving UGS. The last time was,I believe,about a year before I emigrated.
Best wishes.

  Comments To Sandra in St Helen's.

I can still see Mrs Pollitt in her shop from when I was a kid.She would give us an apple when we saved up newspapers and took them in to her. Her son was Alan who went to school with us. Sorry, I don't know anymore. Have you tried facebook?

Also I remember Alan Porter and have worked in Nanaimo myself.

  Comments Hello Ellen.
How nice to connect with you ! Your sister's name I remember but, like you, I cannot see a face.

I am in Nanaimo. I spent a number of years as a medical officer in the Canadian Armed Forces and ended up at the Navy Base Esquimalt in Victoria.

If you were at UGS in 1951 I might have a photo that you were in. I have the complete album of all the school photos that were taken in Sept 1951. It was given to me by Mr Studdert before he passed away.

My best wishes to you.

  Comments I was at UGS 1951-57. I can remember your name,But cannot put a face to it! You problably wouldn't remember a lowly first-former, when you would have been an exalted third, or was it Fourth year for you. You might have known my sister,who was in her final year in'51; she was a prefect.(she was Jean Patten).How long have you been in Canada,and whereabouts in Vancouver Island do you live?
