Where as most people eventually throw their school reports
away, my maternal grandfather Harold Westmore kept his School Reports for the years 1925 to 1928, from the Ventnor Council
School, Lowtherville Road, Upper Ventnor. He kept them in a tough cardboard envelope that had previously contained Army issue
protective wear. The reports had Class listings on the back, giving a window on the surnames of Upper Ventnor famillies circa
1928. It is lovely to see so many familliar surnames. Coincidentally the lists also contain the name of my paternal
grandfather's sister, Nancy.
In the photo above, are probably all the faces behind
the names. Harold Westmore is marked with an X in the middle of the back row.
