Rod Ackers mentioned Fairlight School (Letters, May 23). That brought back memories.

I started at Fairlight Junior School in 1943. I came to Brighton from Tiverton, Devon.

I can remember headteacher Miss Blackman and Miss Cox.

Whatever happened to these boys and girls: Teddy Holgate, Leslie Rolf, Bert Page, Denis Youngman, and my cousin Keith Blunt and Pat Mitchell?

I can remember them sending me a bundle of comics when I was in hospital. Also, Brian Attree, George Novis and Donald Edge.

Where are they now?

I went from there to Coombe Road School and then to Moulsecoomb County Secondary, leaving school in 1947.

Those were carefree days, you felt a lot safer then than you do now. In those days, they taught the three Rs and discipline and respect.

Thank you Mr Ackers for bringing back many happy memories.
