Re: Header Photo 'Then & Now'(Mike Bamborough).
Mike the lad you mentioned who got killed in the yards was also out of our class at school,his name was Laurence Burdis .It happened as you described and it was in Hawthorn Leslies yard on one of the Rover boats being built there.(The Blue Rover I think).I remember it well,it happened on a Monday and I had walked down Leslies bank with Laurence on the way to work.A real tragedy to me.Hope to see you at the re-union.Take care.
