    Knott for confirming that Michael Knowles who played Captain Ashwood in the classic Britcom It ain t half hot mum was in the Sixth Form in 1953 54 and played the lead in the annual Shakespear play To read comments made by people about this page scroll down to below this thumbnail If you were a former pupil then you may also be interested in my modern Bemrose 75th Anniversary photos HERE DP OLDBEMROSE 01 Guestbook Comments about this page Hi Andy Those new photos of Bemroses are very good I wouldnt recognise the place now The Hall is still the same with one exception 1953 54 they had a new organ installed on the Balcony at the back of the Hall which seems to have flown out of the window Mr Eades the music teacher was quite proud of that instrument It sounded a little better than metal drums I dont have any fond memories of Bemroses in fact no memories at all just the odd teacher I do or did have a cousin who went there in the 1940 s John Rose from Alvaston but I have no contact with him He was at Bemrose from 1937 to about 1942 he eventually gained a PhD in Zoology and worked at the London Zoo I found that out from his brother who still lives in Alvaston Fortunately for my parents they only paid one month for my education at Bemrose and I think they were overcharged Alan Rose 02 08 2005 Your site brings history alive The large school picture of Bemrose school 1953 was interesting as that was the year that I graduated from Bemrose and emigrated with my parents to Montreal I found myself in the very back row just to the left of the building the blond kid with the happy smile To my right were John Mole and Micheal Knowles One often wonders what has happened to ones friends over the years That is one of the problems in this modern world where people are so mobile one loses contact with one s roots The new pictures of Bemrose school were particularity interesting I always remembered it as a very good looking building but I wondered if I was looking back with rose coloured glasses but no it is a handsome building The type of classic design that still looks good a hundred years after it was built Something that cannot be said for many of the modern buildings that arose in the sixties All the best Ken Scott Victoria British Columbia Canada 08 08 2005 Hello Andy I am on top row Half hidden aged 15 I left Summer 1954 Question I can recognise one or two classmates but have difficulty finding most I was in the school choir circa 1949 51 and we made a recording at BBC Birmingham for Children s Hour Does anyone else remember this There was a 78 rpm record made Does anyone have a copy Are the following
