The last time I saw Robert was about 6 years ago in my Aunts café in Moseley St. He hasn't changed a bit, I think he lives over Rubery way now, but I wouldn't swear to it.
 
As for the boys club incident I don't remember it, I'm not saying that I wasn't there just that I don't remember it. I was just thinking the other blond headed chap you mention could have been Wilkie who lived in Vincent St he was my uncle sadly another one who is no longer with us.

Yes Wilkie Houghton is correct he was my mothers youngest brother. He was a mate of Roberts as well so it might be him you were thinking of. These are the only two photos of myself that I can come up with from around that time. Though they are a couple of years later.

I can't really remember teachers as I hated most of them the two that stick out were Mr WILSON Miss Pitt,oh and Mr Green,Mr Drayton(head master)god I hated my school days thinking about it,but it done me no wrong.
Hi I remember all those teachers, Mr Drayton left shortly after I started at Hope St, and Mr Benson was the head teacher then, he was ok, Mr Green was ok, I started Hope St when we went into the seniors, I was just thinking about the 3 girls we mentioned, I think it was Joan, not Jane, your cafe sounds very interesting, lol, I left school in 66, were you in the same year as me, theres someone else I chatted to who was in our class, Dave Pedan, if you find a thread called Bishop St, I was talking to him on there.

Hi Phil,Would you send me your email address and I will send you a photo of me as I cannot figure out how to post one on here,
