HI DAVE.
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING ON THE TRYING TO FIND PAGE AND SPOTTED TWO NAMES I REMEMBER.
PERCY MILLS WHO DROVE THE SCHOOL LORRY WHICH WAS GARAGED NEAR THE TINSMITHS SHOP,
AND EVERY MORNING WHEN WE ARRIVED AT SHOP HE WOULD BE HAVING CHAT WITH HAROLD DeBOECK
THE SHOP MASTER. I WENT WITH HIM A FEW TIMES FROM GOLDINGS TO BOYS GARDEN CITY WOODFORD
TO VISIT MY YOUNG BROTHER.
I HOPE HIS GRAND SON READS THIS AS I FOUND HIM TO BE A VERY FRIENDLY GENTLEMAN
PS. I HAVE MENTIONED HIM IN MY HISTORY OF GOLDINGS

ANDREW ORELLO.
THE OTHER NAME THAT CAME TO MIND WAS JOSE ORELLO HE CAME FROM SPAIN PROBABLY ABOUT
THE TIME OF THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR, HE WAS A VERY GOOD FOOTBALLER AND SCORED MANY GOALS
FOR THE SCHOOL FOOTBALL TEAM.

JOHN HORN. 1942-45

















Peter Mills found lots of lads who remembered his grandfather from their time at Goldings (John Horn, Jimmy James,
John Hunt) all remembered
Percy Mills

A nice touch at this years reunion 2010, Bill Roe who's best mate at Goldings was Ernie Dawson, his son has been in touch
to contact Bill and send him a picture from Corris House (this was the home they were both in before Goldings) as Ernie
passed away in 1990, Bill got in touch with Barnardo's for information on him but they felt they could not put him in touch
with Ernie's family, so it dried up! but all Bill wanted to do was to pay his last respects to him, it now seems it has come to a
happy conclusion via the site.
Bill met up with his old friend Ernie Dawsonís 2 sons Mark and Andy at the reunion then Mark and Andy took Bill with his son
Frank to pay his respects, to Ernie his best friend.

I have been looking at the Barnados web site, My grandfather
Percy Mills worked & lived at Goldings during
the 1930's & 40's my memories of him are vague he died around 1945 I believe he drove an Albion lorry &
may have worked in the shoe shop. This could be before your time, I am hoping that some of your older
members may have known him. any information or photos{ which I can copy & return] would be great.

A couple of mails I received over the last few days. James Medland can be contacted through myself if you can help.
We believe James came into Goldings Winter 1957, if you remember him, or any incidents of that time he would
appreciate your help. Dave

(I was in this team
jamie medland i know of one other the little person is whippet.)

(Sorry I was so vague about the gym team i was talking about Bob Newtons team. I think those photos where taken in
the 50s. My recollection of my time at goldings is very sparse . If there is anybody that you know of that could help
me to recall my time at goldings I would be so gratefull as i want to sit down with my grandchildren and talk about
my time at school.)
With all my heart felt thanks
Jaime Medland.
