Winchmore Hill School - a Memory of Winchmore Hill.

I was born in Middlesex hospital in 1937. We lived in Carpenter Gardens. I went to Winchmore Sec Mod from 1942 to 1952. My dad was a policeman in Winchmmore Hill, we moved to Great Yarmouth when my dad retired in 1953. I went in the army in 1954, came out in 1958, lived in Gt Yarmouth till 2001, then moved to USA, big mistake but too old to do any more moving now. I remember the Sulivans, the Colliers, Moody's, the Nichols. The Booths the Kirbys - does anyone remember me Eddie Shearing?
