I have just found reference to Mundella Grammar School on the internet and am hoping that you may be able to help or point me in the right direction.
The history of the Air Training Corps is currently being updated and we have a photograph from April 1941 that we are unable to obtain any information about. It is a photo of the first ATC officers course and it includes the image of a Fl.Lt R.B.Calder who was the first commanding officer of 674 (Mundella Grammar School) Squadron, when I believe the school was evacuated to Stamford.
I have contacted all the squadrons on the photograph that are still in existence but none have any information. I did see a small photograph of the squadron on your website and was wondering if you may have any archive information (school magazines) that may give us a clue as to where the photograph was taken. I believe I have narrowed it down to possibly having been taken at one of the Cambridge colleges but am still trying to confirm this rather than publish a guess in the history.
If you are able to assist in any way I will be happy to forward a copy of the photograph and give you what little information I have.
Any help you could give will be greatly appreciated especially as the grammar school appears to no longer exist.
Thank you in anticipation
Ray Fisher

My name is Russell Emmony. I attended Mundella
from 1933 to 1937. That makes me one of the oldest ex-pupils I have seen referred to on this web site. Can anyone remember me and/or tell me where I can buy an old school tie i.e. with maroon, gold and black diagonal stripes?

Hi. My grandad, Donald Richard Wilson, attended Mundella. He was born back in 1918 so I guess he would have attended Mundella back in the mid to late 20's?

He died a few years ago and is sadly missed!

I would love to see some old school pictures of him if any were ever taken.

Regards,

Paul

I left Mundella in 1941,having been evacuated with the school to Stamford in 1939. I hope to attend St Mary's Church on November 10th. It would be nice to hear from any old scholars who I knew at the time. Names I remember are Denis Godfrey, Barry Parsons, Alan Grice Mills, Sid Richards, Ron Morris, John Thornton,
Joan Deacon, Sheila Suter, Brenda Hutchinson, Dorothy Truman. (these are maiden names).
I am in touch with Stan Greatorex.
