Looking for Old Friends?
Over 500 people have now registered on the site and we have had over 38,000 hits, but the news is drying up Please send me some new old photographs to keep the site fresh.
Do you remember Farnborough House?
I have had a request from Mr Bryan Homer now of Rugby for information on Farnborough House School . Bryan and his brother were there in 1939/1940and remember being evacuated to Tewkesbury. As far as I know all the Greenmore and related records and photographs ended up in a skip except a few that were liberated by some former pupils who were passing when the skips were being loaded.
Please email me if you have any information on old school documents locations that I can pass onto Bryan.
