Hi Brian or rather Chip
After the apparent demise of Friends Reunited and not being a Facebook fan, I googled SW Tech and found your excellent photograph collection. It was very good of you and with great foresight to build up this lovely collection, I should imagine many have been pleased to see them, they certainly bring back the atmosphere of T3 to T1 or was it T3 to T ?
I should imagine, like me you can recite the class register. We were at opposing ends:...... "Coombs, Cooter" and finishing of course with yourself. My nick name then was something like "Plonk" or "Conk" or similar.
Not a prize pupil, achieved the grand total of two "O" Levels. Left school Friday 26 July 1963, started work Monday 29 July 1963. Continuously employed ever since and still working!
Attended a couple of re unions at the Gamecock donkeys years ago - 1985-90 ?
I hope you are keeping well and it would be nice to hear from you even if it meant listening again on (Griffiths held the boring autopsy post exam) how I wasted an hour going wrong on the hemispherical bowl question in the 63 paper. Mind you I think you passed Maths "O" level before this and was already flying away.

Hi Chip (aka Brian) Wow! What a blast from the past, stumbling across the photos on your website. Over the years I kept in touch with Roger Teagle, John Bright and Gary Kenny in particular. Gaz is still in Australia and when he retired from the army became a Vicar. He visited UK some years' ago and with his wife Jeannie, stayed with us for a week or so. My life has been interesting (for me anyway) ... leaving school joined Westminster Bank and became a tutor at the London Training Centre. Like Gary I ended up in full time ordained ministry with two parishes under my care. Later years established a computer training school in USA and Banbury, UK. Sold this about 2 years ago and at the grand age of 60 retrained as an 'alternative therapist'. For the last 9 years we live half the year in Florida, the remainder in cold & wet UK. Thanks for brightening my afternoon. All the best ... glad you are still alive and kicking!! Blessings Dave (Abel)

Hello Brian I just found your fascinating photos and they brought back a lot
of memories. I am in regular contact with Jeff Williams and occasionally
exchange e mails with Ian Putley and Eric Watson, otherwise I have lost contact
with most of the others. In your photo number 1109 I think that the missing
name is Geoff Walsh.
Send mail to Brian Wood (Chip) chipbwood.co.uk , I'd love to hear from you.
