Would particularly like to make contact with old friends - Arthur Pratt, who lived in Over Norton Road, and Horace Weston. I now live in Waterlooville, Hampshire and am now 80 years of age. We were all in the RAF in the Second World War.
John Thompson c. 1933 Login or Register to view email address. I was at Chipping Norton School in the early 1930s when Mr Orme was Head Master. I remember discipline being very strict then.
After leaving school I did electrical work in the area around Oxford, including a spell at Bliss Tweed Mill. During the war, I was in the RAF, stationed in Canada, close to where I was born. Les Sewel, another ex-Chipping Norton pupil was with me there for a time. I returned to Chadlington after finishing military service and in the late 1950s started my own business in Electrical Engineering Contracting. I was a local representative on the Chipping Norton RDC and then on WODC for many years.
In 1958 I married my wife Julie. We have four Children and seven Grand-children. Julie and I still live in Chadlington and would be interested to hear about any other ex-pupils of my generation. The e-mail address belongs to one of my Grand-children.
