- My name is Barbara Sole, and I am a Canadian senior citizen who is trying to locate my sister whose married name is Pamela O'Flaherty. After emigrating to Canada in1951 I made a brief visit to Gosport in 1962 at which time I visited my sister who was living in the Chantry Road --Eastbourne Avenue area. Since that visit all contact has been lost. If anyone in Gosport has any information of the whereabouts or demise of this person, please contact me by e-mail at (Added 18/3/07)

- I went to Privett Secondary School 1964-66, I would love to get in contact with somebody who might have pictures. My family moved to Toronto, Canada in October of 1966 but I have very fond memories of the place. It is so long ago I only remember 1 name a John Richardson who went to Privett Secondary and lived on Elmore Road in Lee-on-the-Solent. My maiden name back then was Rosemary Bird, we livd at 4 Elmore Road. Anyone out there who has anything can contact me at . I haven’t been back to England for 40 years but what actually happened to the old School I have been searching the Internet but can’t find anything Rose White (Added 3rd June 2007)

- I have emailed to advise that the Privett School was merged with Bay House in 1972 later was closed and houses and flats are not built on the site. Ian

- I am trying to locate a family that was in the children's home in Alverstoke Gosport, I went to school with Catherine Weir at Bay House Comprehensive in 1972 and her and her brother and sisters were regular visitors to my families home. We moved back to Portsmouth and our friendship continued with Catherine and her siblings still having regular visits to our house, my Mother & Father were also very fond of the children and treated them as their own. We emigrated to Australia in 1974 and lost contact, I would dearly love to find this family, I have thought of them often over the past 33 years, and would like to know that they are happy with families of their own. Catherine would have been born 1960, John 1958/59 not to sure about the younger siblings. Sandra Smith (3rd Jun 07)
