      As I remember Harry Rodgers (Trigger ) named after Roy Rodgers horse trigger, in the cowboy films.
      Mr Ellis ( tall and slim) was deputy head and garden teacher.
      Mr Carter was history. Mr Marsden was geography. Mr Gillett was maths.

      Sorry I remember now, Mr Marsden was not geography , he was the woodwork teacher
      and boy was he strict if any boy was unlucky enough to get the cane from him he would
      make sure he behaved in future. Mr Marsden really was vicious with the cane, and would surely be locked up nowadays for that punishment.
