HUDSON: At the end of November I wrote asking if any reader might be related to a teacher I fondly remembered from some 60 years ago when he taught at Reginald Road Primary School in Eastney when I was about 10 – in 1957 my family all left for Canada and at 14 years of age and no e-mails, lost touch with all.

In about one week I received replies from not only the man’s two sons in different parts of the world but subsequently from Mr Hudson himself, now a spry 93-year-old.

To say I was thrilled would be an understatement and guess what?

Mr. Hudson has a first name, Bill, still Mr. Hudson to me though. The News, thank you very much you bridged a void from my school days.
