Is that "Jock" Shaw maths teacher in back row? The chap in front isn't Jack Gilliett is it?

Shaw had no connection with fishermen or the industry he just liked collecting money.

"Jock" Shaw maths teacher was a rum un we could always get going off on a side track about the war. Jack Gilliett was a strict discilpine man even though he was short in stature many times had me stood on the balls of my feet by grabbing the sideburns. God that hurt. Ernie Griffiths was a terror as well. Pity the Deanery doesn't have the same standards now. Any photos of Roy Jackson (Taffy) and Tommy Gore? I remember Roy taking me with a couple of others lads in his football team to watch Bolton Wanderers play Sheffield Wednesday at Burnden Park in the early sixties. Wouldn't be able to do that on his own these days! What about Mr Cutter??? his classes were always a shambles that is untill Derek Hurst came in (I think he had the classroom next door) We soon quietned down then. I can still feel the split cane he used on my bottom. Liked Derek and also Ken Richardson (art) ? Banks science and biology was ok too. It was a great school then.
