Awful boxpleat thingie, had to be pressed constantly!
Blue knickers
Hat & gloves
Horrible gym slip... with a shirt & tie! How they expected us to run in that I don't know
Thick fawn granny stockings in winter & knee-high fawn socks in summer

No wonder we grabbed the 60s fashions with both hands!

Mine were navy blue with pocket.
Went to school in centre of city...1000girls...1000 boys next'er the twain should meet.....but we played netball in the tiny yard,in our navies ,and the boys in upstairs rooms could watch us ,unless they were caught and given detention.

Also had navy gymslip with sash of house...I was in Eliot...after George Eliot.
Hats had to be worn out of school on way home and if a prefect caught you...reported!
Those were the days...but we had a good education.
