1947 Norman Drane R.I.P.
Norman Drane, my husband, was at Mayfield when I was there. In fact one of the first times I saw him was on the 63 bus from The Hawbush, which we all used to catch from Chadwell Heath to Mayfield. We were married in 1955 and had 46 very happy years together, having three children. Sadly he died on the 2000 New Year’s Eve. He, like me, was very happy at Mayfield and often used to speak fondly of his school days there. His best friend Alan Dyer was also a pupil at Mayfield and we were very close to him, and his wife and family, all our married life.

Hi there Norma,
Did you have a sister called June? I think I used to come to your house to play with your sister. We lived in Lexden Drive. Would love to know about June.
