Where are these lads now? most of them left school in 1951 & I only saw a few of them after that, the last time I saw Harvey Cowan was in a queue outside the Majestic cinema one Saturday afternoon, Derek Charlesworth I last saw in Lower Basinghall Street I believe he told me he was learning to be an engraver, Jimmy Miles I occasionally saw at the Carlton cinema, he had at that time recently lost a finger in an accident at work as an apprentice engineer. I left Leeds in 1956 when I joined the R.A.F. & rarely get back there. If anybody knows about any of the others please add a comment.
