    • Indeed – he would have been 32 when he started as a head. To anybody of 11 years or under 32 is already quite old. 32 was for those times quite a young age to become a head, not exceptional, but not common either. The post war years saw a shortage of qualified & experienced teachers for obvious reasons.

    I commenced attending BG Primary, the year that disciplinarian Mr. Hickman became Headmaster.
    Just my rotten luck!

    See : FRIENDLY GLIMPSE – A Friendly Glimpse.
    Compare the photo in which grumpy Mr. Hickman appears, with that which shows the following Headmaster – grinning Mr. Field.

    Colin Mann : Is that Alec Broad, the Sevenoaks and District Football League referee – with the bushy ginger beard, short shorts, and long white legs?

    Colin Mann : Are you related to Sue Mann?

  5. Mr Field, we all called him frog eyes!! RIP Mr Field. Mr and Mrs Hickman were our neighbours on Maidstone road when they were pensioners.
