That's me 4th from the left on the back row next to Lawrence Wilson. Only memory of Wareing was him always telling his ridiculous war stories. Kevin Sharkey was the best woodwork teacher. Trevor Duckett and Paul Bagshaw were also great teachers. Wasn't fond of any of the 'Christian' ?????? brothers. Bunch of sadists. Used to save bus fares and pocket money for having a day off with a trip to Southport. Hated that school with avengeance.

That's me on the left of Eddie Marshall - third row from the front, second left. No happy memories of those days unfortunately....
