Bob (Robert at school) Page discovers our website

click the photo to see it full size.

Robert Page writes " was at PCGS from 1961 to 1966. Unfortunately I never kept in contact with anyone as we moved away from Surrey when I left.

I have only recently found the Fasetpatria website and have been amazed at the wealth of information there and in your archive. I was particularly intrigued to see Martin Jones' class list for 1A in 1961 - there I am: R.C.Page! (and wondering what the little "x" means..?) No mention as to why "Tom" is written at the top of the page : it was the name of the (pre-) Portakabin style classroom we used, just alongside the junior bogs. Classes 1B and 1C were in matching temporary classrooms known as Dick and Harry.

I have a number of photos and documents which I am happy to make available - what is the preferred format? PDF makes for more manageable file sizes. My pictures also include some of 1610 squadron of the ATC - something that doesn't seem to get a mention anywhere in the archives. "
