ADDED 16 APRIL 2007
Regarding your article about
featured in the April 2007 issue, I wonder if anyone can remember Mr.
Wrightson at Ferrybridge School? I should think that from around World War
One, if not before, he had the nickname ‘Daddy Wrightson”. I often
wondered why he was called this until I asked an ex-pupil from before my
time (1950s) if he knew. He said it was because Mr. Wrightson’s father,
who before a strong resemblance to him, was the truant officer, so he was
called ‘Daddy’ after him. I thought I would just write and explain in case
anyone else wondered.
Also on page 14 of the April issue are some photographs of
taken in 1955, the top of which shows my mother, Mrs Barker, the class
teacher. There is a photograph on page 12 also of Ferrybridge School in
the same year, and Paul Hansom is featured in the middle of the back row.
