Note my chosen Email address though no longer in South Harrow! Went to Welldon Park Primary School 1944 to 1950 so know all about the many interesting references on this website (and all about Mr Goodhead's cane). So I'd have made the journey twice a day from Roxeth Green Avenue there and back during the threat of V1s and V2s: certainly a V1 landed near Merton Gardens anyway (26 June 1944). But I just cannot remember where at WPPS the school air raid shelters were, as I must have been in them. Perhaps someone out there can say. By the way, before Roxeth Library was built I would cycle to I think Perivale Library via Northolt Park, the first loan being The Swiss Family Robinson.

Lived in Whitby Road 1945-1969 Primary school at Weldon Park 1949-1956 great school with good teachers - 42 children in the class, then on to Pinner County.

Great times and lots of places to explore in rural South Harrow.

Still in touch with my mate Colin Charles' and Elaine Tadd who both live closeby

Colin has some Weldon Park School photos at about age 7 and can name nearly everyone there.

Also a photo of the two of us at the top of Parkfield Road, where Colin lived, on Halls Milk Float with Horace the milkman and Snowball the horse!

Happy memories
