Thanks mcsporran, He is the first one listed there, as I know he was a year older than I am, and I recalled the second initial 'G'. Thanks for your suggestions. I will try Google.

Prof. Look on "FreeBMD". Enter Jackson, David G, marriages, and you'll see a marriage to a Dorothy Corden in Coventry Now enter Jackson, mother Corden, births, and you'll see two children born in Coventry This might well be who you are seeking, and give you more info to use There's also 192.com although if you find something of interest you would have to pay a small amount to extract full details Good luck Thumbs up

Thanks Midland Red. I may have found him at Cardiff University, a Professor no less (mine's just a nickname!) and photo could fit with passage of time. However he retired in 1980 from that post.

Thank you mcsporran, the Hugh Rd entry is of interest as his brother lived at that address. It was back in the 60s that I knew them. May investigate, but it is a very common surname. Edited by member, 15th Oct 2016 9:32 pm

When I tried that site yesterday there was a longer list and a couple of David G addresses, but today they've started limiting the results to 100. Unfortunately I didn't take a copy, but you can now search by postcode district so just use CV5 instead of Coventry. Edited by member, 15th Oct 2016 10:22 pm

Woodlands School Cross-country team 1956/7 Back row - L to R. Mr. Twistleton (Trainer), Malcolm Siddle, Frost, McBain, Pettifor, Bates, Ken Dickson, Atkins. Front row - L to R. Cressey, Robins, Brian Cockerton, Bill Adcocks, Clarke, West, Tony Hoffman. We won the Coventry Schools Championship that year. Following that success 6 of us were selected for the Coventry Schools Team for the Warwickshire schools championship. Bill Adcocks became a very successful long distance runner who represented Great Britain. Some members may recognise some of the lads.

On 21st September 1954, Woodlands Comprehensive School opened, becoming one of the first comprehensive schools in the country. The Headmaster was Mr. F. West M.A., previously Head of the Coventry Technical Secondary School. The official opening by The Right Worshipful The Lord Mayor of Coventry, Alderman T.H. Dewis J.P., took place on 12th October 1955. Post copied from topic What happened on THIS day in Coventry's history? on 21st Sep 2017 9:01 pm

Midland Red, I was one CTSS boy of 500 in the first intake of Woodlands. I was in the Lower Sixth, in Sparks House, named after the Deputy Head at CTSS 'Ned' Sparks (I had been in Spencer House at Tech), Mr Long was the Housemaster, and I was made a Prefect.

I wonder who might remember Colin Dick, art master, Perrens House, in the 50s and 60s? He was also involved quite often in school drama. I am his wife, or rather widow, as he died last week after a long life of painting and a spot of teaching. His funeral will be at Holy Trinity church at 10 am on Friday, 17th November, should any one wish to go, and l am venturing on this website to ask if any old Woodlanders of his period have memories of him that they would like to share to be included in a celebration of Colin's life.
