Hi Ardoyne people Terry would be around 65 as we were both very young when we joined the RAF in 1960 and he is very good snooker player a bit of a hustler. He used to give me some right hiddings. Christyb

Hi cristyb, I went to school with a Terry Mac Farlane, he came
from Northwick Drive, thats right he would be the same age as
myself, 65, His brother Gerry was in the same class as us,
I always wondered what happened to Terry.....I didn't know
he joined the RAF. .If he joined in 1960, he must have joined
as a boy, because he would have been only 16.

Were any of the Trainors dress makers?
My wife lived in 45 and remembers having clothes made by Trainors,
she thinks they lived about 55.
