    • 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?
