East Ham Grammar School For Boys
« on: 05 March, 2012, 05:38:38 PM »
I attended the above School from 1948/53 . any old boys still about? - ie. Dave  Copeman, Tony Reeves,  Miller,Williams  The headmaster was a Dr (Joe) Whiteley. I lived in Byron Ave and used to go to a youth club in Monega Rd school. Sundays we all used to meet in the local pictures "The Premier" in East Ham or "The Coronation" at Manor Park broadway' used a cafecalled The Monega afterwards.
I had a large family of cousins who lived in Kensington Ave. named Darby   -John. Ronnie, Kenny, Lesley, Teddy, Peggy, Sheila and Josie. We seemed to have lost touch.
Greatfull for any information  John

Long shot but Josie is a name you rarely hear of. My mum had a good friend around 1970 called Josie Kemp (married surname) who would have been the right age. She also had a daughter called Josie.  I think they lived near us in the Hameway ara but moved. We used to visit them in Lathom Road, opposte Lathom Road School. I would have only been about 7 or 8 at the time and can only remember a random thing; that she smoked Kensitas and collected the vouchers  :)

I have a old Postcard of Kensington Ave. If you would like a copy go to the top of the page, click on members and on page 10 you will see my name. Click on the envelope and send me an E-mail and I will send it to you. Joe
