Hello Charlotte, this is the first time I have visited the Tavern having spent my time cleaning up my and Jack's Tavern after the rabble had left.
A little bit of history, I attended the WCCB in 1942 in fact the same time as Jack, yet we never met {narrow escape} Joined the Shazada in Prince Albert dock August 1943 bound for India.
When you left the WCCB in 1963 what did you do ?

Well, sadly I didnt enjoy the pleasures of being a student at WCCB only the pleasures of being a grammar school girl who enjoyed the pleasures vicariously by 'associating' with young men who DID attend and I also lived round the corner and over the road to Wavecrest.
My mother said I was like the woman behind the aspidistras as I was always spying out from behind the net curtains.. WOW!!!!! some of the time!!!!!!!!
Many of us did go out with wireless college lads!!!!!!!!!  Very Happy
I left school and went to college in Kingston, accompanied by a wc young man who was employed by Marconi for a while.......
I then worked at the college for 4 years, met my now ex husband and became a
social worker.....................
Three years ago a number of  us colwyn Bay grammar school friends started to get together twice a year, although the one with me in the pic outside the Miami have always met regularly....as one gets old..er one wonders what happened to people, especially those one knew well...sadly some have died.
So nothing very exciting about my history.........

Maybe you and your friends could co-ordinate a get together with our Reunion, Charlotte, or might that be a source of some embarrassment? (Well, you know what sailors - and ex sailors - are) Very Happy  Very Happy

Hello all ! this is my first visit to this site cannot think why ! You are indeed very brave Charlotte mixing with this bunch of reprobates, I got wise to them from the beginning and removed myself to darkest Peru where I come to grips with the descendants of the Inca's,not quite true, I actually came here in 1978 and have lived here since that time with the exception of ten years in Florida from 1988 to 1998. which means in reality that I have spent a total of twenty five years here. I attended the WCCB during the same period as Jack 1942 to 1943, I am now like Jack an old codger of 86 years of age,don't let Jack fool you, he is not a youngish lively 48,in fact I heard many years ago that he has never been in that state, Sorry I have spilled the beans Jack !
It is now lunch time so I will remove myself forthwith,sighs of relief all round.[b]

What you fail to point out Alan is that it takes YEARS of dedicate practice to become a State Registered Reprobate, unless, of course, you "fast track" it via HM Forces.

Charlotte,nice to see you back. Please stick to yards,feet and inches like I do and you wont have any meter troubles! You wouldn't have got a chip from the old Electra Chippy on Abergele Road,stuck in your throat. They were lovely! Keep digging you'll find that oil well yet. Best wishes Jack.

So, Charlotte, do we now call you "JR Ewing" and do you have a permanent invite to the "Oil Baron's Ball"?

It's good to have you back onboard, I was fearful that Jack's malicious slurs on my character (most of which were probably deserved) had frightened you off, although I'm sure you are made of much sterner stuff.

Anyway, welcome back and I hope your problems are soon sorted.

Hi All,

It s marvellous reading some of these posts. I am Alan huddart (1061-1963) and some of the  names mentioned I am sure I remember. Maybe Charlotte can help - was Hugh Gillespie from Ireland, if so he and I were in the same group and if the phote you have on the prom is the one i have then He and I are on it. I also have to admit to probably being the Alan with a beard and glasses. while at ta WC I grew the full set and then shave at the end of that term.
Terry Plant also rings a bell. I'm not 100% sure but I think Terry came to work and Portisheadradio, perhaps went to a coast staion and eventually emigrated to Canada. If there is another Terry plant around then i apologise to him but the one I think I remember has recently died out in Canada.
Hope to meet everyone at the reunion again this year.

Alan
