Anyone out there who remembers the war years, evacuation to South Wales, and the bomb damamge to the school (a whole day off). I think (Gussy) Gilbert was headmaster and Evans taught English. The Art teacher, a woman, gave me a love for drawing and painting and I later pursued that in Paris and even now. I left in '47 and, an Electrical Engineer, I have lived in Australia, naturalised, for the past 50 years.

I attended the Road School for Girls in Devonshire Drive from 1949 to 1954. I left form 5L when my parents moved to the Midlands. I would love to get in touch with any one who can remember me! Hazel Poore, Maureen Page, Beryl Rainbow, Glennis Heard, Jean Hunter, Jill Brown, Pauline Lee, Avril Davies, Barbara Rook, Tich Beaver, Joyce Leng , Margaret Simpson, Jean Chadwick,Brenda Knowles - I could go on! I'm living in Brighton now, and snowed in until it thaws! I'm still in touch with Diane MacDougall, but haven't seen anyone else since going back to receive a 5th form prize, so it would be fantastic if any one does get in touch.

I was at Roan 1959 to 1966. Remember Hank,Sam,Gab,Basher etc
A very good friend of mine died on 4th Jan PAUL CLEMENTS. Paul was at Roan 1957-1962 when his family moved to Leicestershire. Paul was an exceptional sportsman who payed football for England at amateur level in the 1970`s.He also played professionally for Wigan. His brother Tim also went to Roan. I just thought anybody who remembers Paul would like to know. I am sending flowers from all who remembered him at school. Please contact me if you want to be include on list of former friends/classmates(no cost!!).... Regards to all... Bob Gowlett

I was at the school from 1974 to 1981 (Les de Hoog's and Ian Daniels's era). From about the 5th form upwards, I used to play in the school band run by Bill Ellis (maths teacher). We had some great music to play ranging from the James Bond theme tune (great for Carl Woody's electric guitar solo) to Glenn Miller and Hollywood musicals. I would like to know what has happened to the sheet music? If any one has any ideas, please can they let me know.

Peter J.Bailey, were you in the 5th form leaving in 1949? The gollywog bit
I don't recall, but our dates are the same at Road.Lawrence Bowen, seems to cover my dates too 1943 to 1949. I recall that Mr., Gilbert had a
right hand man who did all the whacking!Dave Bryden, Arthur Smith did
mention that he went to Roan but only briefly....

I was at Roan between 1971 & 1977. Good to see Alfie Knott is still going. Remember going back to his place after the school band had traipsed around Blackheath just before Xmas terrorising the locals with a selection of carols! Checked out the 1977 picture and it looks like I've been cropped out, I think I was near the R/H end. Shame, as I can't find my copy of the photo. Recognise a lot of faces, but hazy on the names.

Hello There All,
I am trying to trace evacuee's that were apperently sent to the town of Ammanford at the start of the Second World War. This may sound difficult, but in particular a girl/ lady today, by the name of Audery who I am led to believe had Red hair.
She lived at my fathers family home called, 'Gwynfryn' in Collage Street, Ammanford.
Any leads would be very welcome indeed.

Many Thanks,

Stephen Evans, Malta, G.C.

Hi. I know that it's over a year since Kevin Jacques asked the question about the skiing trip(s) to Austria in the early 70's and I expect that he has probably found out the answer by now, but as I recall the resort we went to was called Reith (im Alpbachtal).
