Fond Memories - a Memory of Andover.

This photo is significant to me since I attended this school in the late 1930s/early 1940s. I was a member of Hanson House and played football on the sports field to the right of the pool. I rode a bicycle to school from Weyhill. I was a volunteer student air raid warden at the school. The male students spent the night in the male teachers room, the women in the female teachers room. We were never hit! The school's air raid shelters were at the back end of the football field. We were always very orderly! I was a school Prefect. In 1944 I joined the Army and attended University College, London after the war. Peter Kent

Peter,
Interested to find this memory. I started at AGS in 1948. I was also in Hanson house, & played centre forward for the school. I rode my bike to school from Vigo Rd (not far from the church). My experience of the war is rushing out to the shelter. I was also a prefect. In 1955 I attended Imperial College, London, to study mathematics. I have lived mostly in Canada since 1958, but come back every year to visit friends & relatives. I have attended 2 AGS reunions in the last 5 years, held at a country pub..
