This photo shows a class at Burymead School, Stevenage, c1917 with my father, William Charles Welch, in it. He is marked with an x. I attended this school 1943-1947 and I can assure you nothing had changed. It was still lit by gaslamps and we had slates with chalk to write on them with.

One incident I remember was a teacher looking into my mouth and saying something to the effect that I would always be very talkative because my tongue is joined at the front not at the back.
