Have your say

These two photographs of teachers were both taken at the same school, but either side of the Second World War. The chap in the first photograph, back centre, is believed to be named Routledge. He can be seen again somewhat older after the war following service in the Parachute Regiment.

These are the type of teachers who were called Sir or Miss and headmaster or headmistress and you knew where you stood with them.

The same location but different staff except the tall man back row, an older-looking Routledge.

Gez Groom of Waterlooville, who sent in the photographs, tells me that he would very much like to find out where the school is (or was) so that he could send copies for any school archive.

It is obvious that the framed picture at the rear is the same in both photographs and it rings a bell with me. I wonder whether it could be Stockheath School, the former HMS Daedalus III at Bedhampton?
