I attended Stalag 18 from 1965 - 1969. LOL  :)

Form teachers 1st year (1G2) Bill Logan, 2nd (2G2) & 3rd (3G2) years Cliff Thompson, 4th year (4G3) wee Willie (woodenhead) Williamson.

Must confess, I hated every moment !!!!!!!     Some evil sadists `taught` at that school.  >:D
I wanted to build a fortress, a bastion of invincibility.

I left Ballygo in '61 but some of the names above ring a few bells. Caldwell was head ,Wilkinson deputy (science teacher) Ruddell was my form teacher for a couple of years (he was tough) then Harry Wilson but he was a pussycat. Happiest day of my life was the day I left, hated every minute of it. Have to admit it was all my fault, just wasn't intrested, didn't pay attention, didn't do homeworks. Left most days with warm hands thanks to Mr Ruddles cane! What was the name of the other science teacher? Bald guy with big black rimmed glasses.

Science teachers when I started there in 1965 were, The Wilk, Big Cheyenne, Braniff, Reynolds, Joe Reid, Patterson, Gibson and Casey or Casement, bald head and thick black glasses.

You have a great memory sonofshanks, fantastic, thanks. Casement, yep that was him. I can remember them, but sometimes hard to put a name to.
