Ashford School - a Memory of Ashford.

My name is James Cracknell and I went to Ashford Middlesex school from 1949 to 1951. I was caned on the first day of school aged 7 (six of the best on the behind) for writing on the blackboard after having been told not to. I lived in Ashford in number 10 lansdown road (I think). I left in 1951 when my father was transferred to Gutersloh in Germany.
