I went to Reginal Mitchell Primary School and 'Mr Bancroft' retired took us for Pottery. He made two busts of Regional Mitchell whilst we were making crappy ashtrays as 9 or 10 year olds. I was born in 65. Very strong memories of him teaching us pottery and his unbelievable skill in creating the two busts. One used to be in the Greenhouse where the Spitfire used to be in Hanley and I think it then moved to the Museum opposite. Simple red clay bust, amazing.
I now live in Darwin, Australia, long way from Stoke.
