- We were the class that joined Central  School in September 1956 and 50 years later - on 29th July 2006 we had a  reunion attended by 18 - although I am in touch with 26 who show an interest in  getting together. I would dearly love to hear from any others - we know  there are some still living in the Gosport area that we haven't managed to get  contact with yet. The next class reunion is proposed to take place on 12th  July 2008. Some of the names we are still looking for are:-  Pat Dyke, Sheila Harris, Evelyn Hibberd, Barry Marsh, Anne Smith, Alex  Calvert, Richard and Michael Berridge, Eddie Flux, Peter Phelan, Ian Duxbury, Marian  Winmill, Eileen Webb, Maureen Martin, Jane Gray, Sue Hoskins any news would be  welcomed.

- While I didn't recognise any faces, (Brockhurst Primary School) the names  certainly were familiar. In those days I lived at Greenlea Grove and  was known as Michael Grant.  Anyone remember me - I went to the Grammar School in 1951/52 I think!! Michael Warby (Added 13th January 2008)

- I used to live in Gosport (110 Kings Road), I attended both Stone Lane  Primary School and Central School in the Fifties. I would like to try and track down some old friends, and am hoping to do  so through this site that I just discovered about 20 minutes ago. My family migrated to Australia in 1959. We went to Sydney but for the  last 30 odd years I have lived in Western Australia. I am filled with nostalgia reading the content, I remember attending the  Siskin Church each Sunday as a very small child, I used to go with my  sister and we were escorted by two boys whose mother was my mother's  best friend, they were Graham and Nicholas Smart. I used to be  fascinated with the brass eagle on the lectern there. I am now 63 years old, but my happiest memories were of Gosport. My Dad  was in the Royal Marines. Wendy Atkins (nee Stevens).(Added 3rd February 2008)

- I have just discovered the web page about Gosport.  I attended school at Newtown (approx 1949) Stone Lane Primary, New  Elson and Privett Girls School (1958/9). My name was then Carol Stevens and I lived in Kings  Road, Gosport. I had a very good friend Nina Bosberry and another friend Diane ( who lived at the National Childrens Home) We sailed for Australia in 1959 and now I live in  Canberra.A.C.T.  My married name is Carol Bloomfield and I would be  interested to hear from anyone who may remember me. (Added 17th February 2008)

- You maybe of help in this respect. It relates to a  mate of mine during the latter years of the war, who lived in Gosport. His name is Tom Buxey and was fantastic  company. The last time we met was about 1948-9 and he was working in the gasworks. Have kept in touch  with his wife Grace each year by way of a Xmas Card but this Xmas failed to hear from her. Hopefully she is  still around and if someone (a relation maybe) could make contact, give her our best am keen to hear how she is getting on. From memory, they  had a son, but never knew his name. Don Sutherland (Added 2nd March 08)

- I was wondering if you would be kind enough to obtain Mark Diments  E mail address for me . My name is Dave Thomson and I am living in Australia. Just trying to track down an old friend. Thanks Dave (16/03/08)

- Is there a list of e mail address's of former  residents who were resident from 1955 to 1961? My wife ,Jacqueline nee Burchell ,  was there then and remembers Sister Edith Day and Mr Thomas. She would like to  contact others to share memories. (I have advised about Careleavers United

- I am looking for help in locating mister Jim / James Hooper. He is a well known American journalist / writer. He wrote books like Koevoet!,  Flashpoint!: At the front line of today's wars, Beneath the visiting Moon: Images of combat in Southern Africa, Bloodsong!: An acoount of executive outcomes in Angola etc. The last information I received is that he is living in Hampshire England and writes for The Sunday Telegraph, but this is unconfirmed.
