Re: Header Photo 'Then & Now'
As Eddy said John Costello was in our class at school, l was under the impression that John died in an explosion on the ship over in wallsend dock, John was a burner, oxygen and acetylene bottles where leaking overnight, and when John and his mate went down in the tank the next day, they light the oxy torch up and the whole place went up killing both of them, that's my memory of John, mind that was back in the early 70's
John's older brother was called Frances.
