I used to deliver papers along Holybank Road when I was a kid ,and looking back on it ,I can remember that I wished I'd passed me 11+ so I could go there,because it was close to where I lived in Rodney St. and it would'nt be far to walk. I did'nt know then about Owen ,but as I got older I got to find out about this great man.So I suppose in a roundabout way the school educated me .lol

I believe my father, William Reid,who was born in 1908,won a scholarship to the BI presumably in the early 1920's or perhaps even earlier. He was the son of a shipyard plate layer who lived in Tranmere. I can recall my father speaking most fondly of his educational experiences. How I wish I had asked him more about it. Sadly he is long gone now as would be his contemporaries. I wonder if any record exists of his attendance and progress.

Hi, David,
Many thanks for your memories, and I shall ask if there are any records of your father's time at the B.I. and let you know.
Regards,

Phil
