Hello Steve - yes, I remember it well. I also remember the small shop and petrol pumps in Exchange Steet. I left the school in 1947 for the Bridlington Grammar School.. I remember Mr Dukes very well and also Miss Galtry, who is still in the town. Nice to hear from you. I do vaguely remember the name. We lived in Harper Street.
