Hi Robert White
I was a late arrival to Mundella and I can blame you for my nickname of Blackie(which incidentally is still with me after all these years. You and I were sat together on a bench for school dinner. The others were trying to decide whta they would call the new boy. I had a mop of black hair(then). You were already called whitey so they settled on blackie for me.
One question for you. Your middle name begins with an H you used to tell us it was a name descended through the family from a notorious person. Tell me now was it true or just your joke.
Lovely to hear from you Blackie W
