I don't think I have ever seen a school building so imposing. I have never actually seen the school close up it was always in the distance.

I can remember playing 'British Bulldog' in that yard. Bill Spencer was the headmaster at the time, a real character.

This bleak scene for the little inmates gives me the shudders. Oflag IV-C looks more inviting.

As a St George's girl from 1948 - 55 I have only find memories of the school, headmaster Bill Spencer pinching my liquorice stick during class, running home to Portland St. at them time for a banana, and being part of the Rose Queen retinue parading round and round the playground in our lovely dresses. Happy times for me.
