Ron Bowman's letter regarding Fairlight School (Letters, June 3) reminded me of happy and some not so happy times there. My brother Fred and I were pupils there in the early 1940s.

I recall times when we got under the desks during air raids. Also, I fell and fractured my leg in the playground and was taken to Brighton General Hospital by ambulance.

Some of the names mentioned are familiar. We also went to scout meetings at the school.
