Teddy Maitland: Now there's a name that got lost to me over past decades. I used to think his name was Edward and was shortened to Teddy, never imagined it was Alex. Richard says you may have been in Mr Rosen's class Upper 1B but I can't be sure. Maybe you could confirm this or at least correct our aged memories!

I've just realised that Teddy Maitland was, I think in my class at Laindon High Road School, if only the first year 1958-9. Other than that no particular memories of Teddy, if you were in Mr Rosen's class then I do recall you, if not you were certainly in my year. Happy Days.

I remember two brothers by the name of Maitland. The younest being Charlie whom I believe was employed by one of the Keelings in their threshing business. Would they have been any relatives of Alex(Teddy)?

Hi I went to Langdon Hills C P School 1957 1963 and I remember the name Micky Maitland, Annette Ryan, Vanda Ward, Denise Clarke, Mrs Willkinson, Miss O Brian and a lovley Headmaster who's name I can't recall. 

The girls played in the front playground and up the far end were steps to a door we didn't use but they made a good stage for us to sing Cliff Richard's song Living Doll!
