  1. I was at Tilery School when Harry Rigg was headmaster and George Kennedy. Now live in Melbourne Australia since 1981.


  2. Can any one remember about 1961-62 when we lads of Tilery boys had our interhouse swimming competition at Billingham baths? We all had our photo taken with the late Brian Clough, I’ve searched for years for a copy of that photo. I was recently told by a lad in my class who married my cousin that he had a copy, I’ve asked for a loan to copy but not heard back yet, does any one else have this photo? I would love a copy.

  3. Are you any relation to Tony Adams who lived in portrack, Jack? For some reason I also knew him as Tony Casey. Also, Don Taylor, are you one of the Taylors who lived in Nicholson Street in Portrack?


  4. I think Mr Griffiths was the headmaster and before he went to Tilery he was a teacher at Richard Hind, his nickname was Piggy Griffiths.
