Memories - Class of 1974

Mark Paul - written in Jan 17th 2005

Forty years ago, this class would have been preparing to go to ‘Upper KG’. I’m sure there are some mistakes in the list – Mike. Briony, Tinkerbelle, PC and Jakes please check. I’ll send you an Excel file attachment separately so you can download work on the list. It goes out of alignment when I copy/paste it on the message. Those
from the 63 to 73 and 65 to 75 batches will also be able to contribute – either you contributed to our batch or we did to yours.
I’ve put question marks against those I’m not sure of – eg. I don’t remember if Christopher Cunningham was in our class or if I just used to play with him during
the holidays. His mother was a matron in either Blackburn or Preston.
I started this list one night while I was traveling in Orissa. The first 50 names came quite easily. The rest kept popping up at odd hours. I had to keep getting up
(at least about 20 times) and adding them to the list, lest I forgot them in the morning. When Mike and I met a few years ago, Mike started on some line from our 3rd standard Reader and we found we could almost recite quite a bit verbatim. The line
were :
‘ Through the long grass, creep, creep, creep came the Hobbiyahs(sp?) etc etc
But little dog Toby could neither slumber nor sleep etc’ not bad at all after all those years.
