Talavera School 1969 1971

A Memory of Aldershot

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.’
