  1. I, too, had a teacher by the name of Mr Claude Allen who was called ‘Bulldog’ because he looked like one. He would be in heaven by now as I am 73 years old.

  2. I was a pupil at this school during the 39-45 war, there was a Mr. Thomas and Mr, Claude Allen who was my teacher in grades 6 and 7, I used to walk to school from 5th Ave Wilston, live opposite the bakery owned by George Bott and after school cleaned out the stables, taking the manure home for our garden. also, in those days watered, rolled and marked the tennis court next door, owned by Mrs .Biddle and was paid the princely sum of one shilling and threepence, my age now is near 86.
