Hello Margaret,yes I to like John Shearer remember the gas mantles at the Quay school as well as our house in Tyne st,and many more houses in those times of the early post war years ,and having to feed the gas meters with coins.l think we got our mantles at the chemist in Lyon st they came in a little box we had to be ever so carefully as they were very fragile,l don't think they were exspendsive.Margaret you said you were in Mr Dunlops class in the years of 1949 -50 l am sure that l would know you as l was in his class at that time,prior to going to Clegwell, it would be nice to know Margaret.
