Memories of Aldershot, Talavera Junior School c1965

Early Schol Years

I remember this so well, what wonderful innocent memories! My siblings and I would get a bus every day there and back from North Camp where we lived. I too remember the pink bus passes we had to guard with our lives. The playground games stick in my mind, skipping, ball games, clapping songs and "I'm Shirley Temple, the girl with curly hair......." we sang that endlessly to the actions. I remember the NAAFI after school and buying Lucky Bags and sometimes Caramac Bars. Remember picking chestnuts sometimes on the way home whilst waiting for the bus. Such sweet happy days!


so pleased to have found this site, i grew up in aldershot and i remember all the places in the oics, i swam at the lido and whent to sat morning pictures, i played for hours in manor park and attended manor park school. i was married at holy trinity church in 1957 and had my first baby at the cottage hospital, things where so different in those days. our first house was 800pounds on alice road. then we moved to cargate hill then to fellowes road farnborough before we moved up here to blackpool. i remember dancing at the central ballroom and sneaking in the naffie club on a sunday afternoon and getting thrown out if caught. such a happy childhood. i grew up on high street number 147, we had a cobblers best friend ...Read full memory

Talavera School 1969 1971

I too lived in Ramillies Park between 1969 and 1971 (185 Ramillies Park,) and went to Talavera. I remember getting the bus from North Camp with a pink bus pass up to the top of hospital hill, walking up past the old officers mess, past the water tower and down the hill to the Naafi at the bottom of the hill. After a little bit of sweet shopping would head into the playground. Yes, I remember the two concrete cats faces that you could climb over, or run through? I had many happy school memories from that Talavera. School dinners with silver jugs of thick yellow custard, small bottles of milk for morning break, playing marbles, and collecting chewing gum cards of the TV show ‘Land of the Giants.’

Talavera Junior School.

I too have very happy memories of Talavera Junior School. I was a pupil there in the late 1960s, having moved up from Marlborough Lines Infants School. I now live in Essex, but over the years on my travels, I have visited these old schools. Does anyone remember the cats' masks in Talavera Junior playground? I also remember that on a Monday, the shield for the winning house (Wolf, Wellington, Clive or Gordon) was announced to the children. As previously asked by someone, I believe that the head of Marlborough Lines was a Mrs Searle, and my teacher at Talavera was Miss Milton. I too also lived in Ramillies Park, although thankfully these terrible looking boxes have now gone. Who on earth was responsible for designing those places?! Julie Barker (nee Wilkes).

Talavera Junior

Happy memories indeed! I have many of those both from Marlborough Lines Primary and Talavera Junior...marbles, hopscotch, Shirley Temple and all the games we played in those days and reading Beano comics when it was pouring down with rain! Does anybody remember any of the Talavera teachers 1968-1970? Or the headmistress of Marlborough Lines School? I lived in Ramalies Park, Army Quarters until 1972. Did anybody else live there?

I remember this School very well. I was a pupil here in approximately 1968/69 after moving up from Marlborough Lines School. I now live in Essex but on my travels have been to see the old place. Does anyone remember the cats mask in the Junior playground? Julie Barker (nee Wilkes).

Talavera Junior School

I went to this School from 1968 to 1970 and have such happy memories! I remember lots of school friends and teachers too...especially a Canadian teacher we used to have.....

Talavera Junior School 1970

Talavera Junior School is still standing and used, whereas Aldershot Manor School is now no more.  I went to both - living for a while just outside the gates of Talavera Junior.
