  • Alan, there was no mellowing of “the dragon lady” during the 7 years I attended (1944 – 1951). I did a double final year with Mr Richardson. Miss O’Brien was probably the most vivid memory of my time at Langdon Hills Primary.

  • I attended Langdon Hills twenty years earlier (1939 — 1945) but I am surprised to see some of the same teachers were still there. Mrs Baker, who taught second year infants, and the terror of all boys and girls — the dragon lady Miss O’Brian. Perhaps she had mellowed over the course of the interim twenty years. I assume that Miss Wilkinson was the daughter of Mr Wilkinson who was one of the two male teachers in my day. However, I am not sure about that, it may simply be a coincidence of the name.

  • Miss Wilkinson used to play the accordion and we all did country dancing. I remember wearing navy blue knickers but can’t remember if that was for dancing or PE. Or were they bottle green?

  • Yes that is me, Karla, No. 39, but my surname is spelt Flentge. In fact it still is. I was scared of Miss O’Brien too! Does anyone know where Phillip Anstey moved to? I live in Melbourne, Australia now and have done for the last 31 years. I too would love to have a copy of this photo, as I seem to have lost mine in the move over here.

  • No. 30 is Sharon but her surname is spelled ‘Koen’ (I know I’m her sister!).

  • 39 Karla Flengta, think thats how you spell it, she had lovely long plaits that stayed in all day and she could sing in german!

  • I saw Miss Wilkinson last year at a choir concert at The Paddocks on Canvey Island. I spoke to her and asked did she remember me and she did. I was either really good or really bad.

    By Ann Ferris née Ryan (27/07/2013)
  • 12. Mrs Mutter, I believe.

    By Mark Robinson (10/06/2013)
  • Martin, I think the name of no. 18 is Valerie Ferrier. She lived in South Avenue off Old Hill Avenue, and as far as I know she didn’t have a sister.

  • I think no 3 is Christine Salt or Salter. my lovely 1st teacher is no 9 Miss Nicholson, Miss O’Brien used to scare me witless. Mrs Baker was lovely, and good old Miss Wilkinson. Did you know she had a book published in her 80’s called country air and breathing space.
