Hello there, I was at DGS from 1961 to 1966 (I think � it seems such a long time ago now!) and remember the school with great affection. I am now a widower living a quiet life on the Hampshire/ Berkshire borders and contemplating retirement after a long and happy career on the railway. I suppose one day that I will always remember was when I was standing on Platform 2 at Crewe about 1980, �all peaked cap and arrogance, master of all I surveyed�, when I was approached by an elderly chap and his wife who asked about a train to Bangor. �Platform 1 at twenty past one, Mr Banfield�, I replied. Not sure who was more surprised by the encounter�.. I�m glad to learn that I wasn�t the only one with a juvenile fascination for the doings, real or imaginary, of Pat Tabernacle. I can even remember what sort of car she drove (a Wolseley 1500) and a group of us peering into its interior and our unmitigated delight at seeing an envelope marked �lover note�, which turned to disinterest when someone realised that it actually read �cover note�! Sat for a few minutes this morning on the train to work listing names of some masters in our time: Wally Allen, Dan Hendra, Len Muggeridge, Josh Broadfoot, ? Gibbs, John Wood, ? Harrington, ? Remington, Pete Lawman, ? Adlam Hill, ? Hateley . No real connections with Dunstable now, all I hear about the town is that the traffic can be dire. If you are the chap I�m thinking of, you told me one of your relatives went down with the Titanic, a member of crew? Finally, and to prove I was alive until fairly recently, here is a pic of me ( [on the left]) entertaining the troops in Norwich. Yours, Frank Cheevers.
