I would like to send messages of gratitude to some of Mayfield’s teachers that I feel I must thank. I know it may not be possible to contact them personally so perhaps I can do it through Mayfield Memories. I often wonder how they are and if, indeed, they are still with us, which makes it doubly important for me to say a vey big thank you to them.
I was saddened to read that Mr. Cutting had passed away. He would have been one of the great teachers that I would have dearly loved to have thanked. I remember him telling the class about how many brain cells he had lost during the war through fright, whilst serving as a Spitfire pilot. I spend much of my time these days researching aviation subjects and would have cherished knowing more of Mr. Cutting’s wartime exploits.
I have very many happy memories of my school days at Mayfield. It was a school that had a special quality that rightly deserves a website such as this where ex pupils can reflect about their youth.
