Just thinking back to my teachers, one lovely man, Mr GiIllespie, our Science Teacher, hate to bore anyone, but I loved this man,
a Scotsman with a lovely sense of humour, I started to style my hair like Christopher Lee, back combed, to which he said, "Hugh,you look
like Sneaky Sam from the Beano", I loved the guy, I later found out he'd lost his mind in class, long after I'd gone, he machine gunned in
his mind, the students, thinking they were the enemy. When my late friend told me this, I was broken hearted, he was such a funny guy,
God alone knows what horrors he had seen in the war, Mr Fearon , our Geography teacher had been a prisoner of war in a Jap camp.My Maths master had flown bombing raids, My Woodwork master had been a very successful spy behind enemy lines and had a full page dedicated to him in the local paper, our teachers......... they were bloody heroes. I think back often, and realise how blessed I was to be in their company. As a rider, although it sullies the exploits of my teachers, I've never been in a gang fight, I've taken on a gang, they took off, fought a gang and took out the gob, winner on both counts, but what these men did is just incredible, my exploits are nothing compared to these
wonderful men...... who kept it hidden. Knighthoods for Geldof and Elton John, what an insult to brave men who taught me and my mates. I only found out this info long after I'd left school.
