About this memory

John Maley (front row, first left).

“Tom Bird (the boy sitting next to me) joined the Fleet-Air-Arm the same time as me. In the back row next to Miss Gordon our teacher is Tommy Martin, killed shortly after this photo was taken when he was killed by a bus, on his bike, when the Coast Line Buses began running down to Seton Sands from St Andrews Square.” – John Maley
