I was born on 6th feb 1944 at 199 Havant Road, Drayton and had a happy childhood there with my 5 sisters and parents.    My father was a painter and decorator and we lived in the house until the late '50s. I believe the house is now a home for the elderly, how things have changed. I went to Portsdown school and the to the high school between Drayton and Cosham.I now live in Northern Ireland but have great memories of the area and going to the George to get my uncle his quart of mild and bitter.

RE: 199 Havant Road, Drayton

Hello John......I went to school with your sister Pauline Cowan AND I do remember your BIG house as well! Give Pauline my regards. Also... Pauline will remember Peter Keat who now runs a website on school memories and other nostalgic local items. Check it out on or contact Peter through the website to be put on distribution lists. We are particularly looking for old photo's of schooldays and of course any memories.
