Hi TK, I was in the BB with a lad called Sam Todd back in the 60s, he lived in Percy St off the Shankill. He was murdered whilst on duty with the RUC by the IRA.

I remember the Millikens...their mummy was Dorothy. They lived facing my granny in Brookmount St...she lived in 86...my aunt in 84 and another aunt directly facing her on the opposite side (can't remember the number though  :scratch_ones_head: ) I can remember a Mr & Mrs Parker lived near the Millikens.
 
I also remember the meadow too. I left Glenwood in '77.

Hey dimples45 I just could not believe it when  I  saw your message, Linda did live on the oldpark road and she did have a sister called Kathleen and the other sister was Barbara my goodness after all these years of trying to find out about her I get on here for the first time and bingo somebody knows her do you know anything about her now? like how she is and where she is living I really do appreciate your message thanks so much I would love to find her and maybe we could write..we were best friends all through high school then I met my husband and got married and we just drifted apart..
