American servicmen were still stationed next to the school huts separated by a barbed wire fence. They often gave us packets of chewing gum.
The army huts was only a temporary move untill the new school was built.
I then attended the new Netherton Moss Primary when it first opened. I think you were in the same class as me Rob.
They were very happy school days and we were so lucky to have excellent teaching staff and a brilliant headmaster Mr Lord
