BARRY Sewell is anxious to hear from anyone who is pictured in the photograph which shows the intake for the Technical Certificate course at Lisburn Tech in 1946. Barry, who is in the back row, fourth from the right, wants to know if any of his old friends are still living in the area.

"I have a lot of special friends and I would love them to get in touch," he said.

"A few will not be around any more but I'm sure there will be some of them about."

I was very interested in the comment about Barry Sewell, whom I remember very well - in fact, I'm standing next to him in that picture . I have lived in Wales for the past 55 years, so haven't kept in touch with anyone except Tom Virtue, who now lives in Chester. I would be very glad if anyone there would like to get in touch at

Best wishes
Robert Irwin
