Long Long Time Ago

A Memory of Bellingham

I attended Brownrigg for the winter term of 1953/54; I was in Tyne dorm and our dorm master was a Mr Robson (no relation), his wife also taught at the school. Mr Walsh was the Headmaster and if I remember rightly Collin Wilkinson from Bedlington was, I think, the school Captain. Another lad, Eric Tait from Holy Island, I think went for football trials for England Boys. We went home for the Xmas holidays, but I did not return as my mother fell ill during those holidays. Reading these stories brought a lot of memories back, I wish I had looked at the page earlier and found the dates for the reunion.
