The blue one on the left was owned by Luke Ralph. The Year Book was made up and printed by L.A. Glover, Printers of Deardengate, Haslingden.
The brown one on the right was my diary which I still have. It has the Committees which you were on and lots of other Council information. It opened with a photo of the Mayor on the frontispiece which was Ald Donald Butterworth (last Mayor of Haslingden) and was printed and made up by the Haslingden Printing Works.

The cap badge is very similar to the one we wore at HGS. It was a cap badge and your mother used the three anchor points to sew it into place. From what I remember the only writing on the badge was the motto and I seem to remember it was in Latin - "nil sans labor".
There was a ceremony involving the badge on your first day at school designed to make you "feel welcome". The senior boys would seek out the new first formers in the playground prior to the start of their first day. They would borrow your cap and repeatedly smash it against a wall until it resembled a piece of shrapnel brightened by the occasional fleck of enamel. If you were luck they would then give it back, if you wern't you had to retrieve it from a recently flushed toilet bowl.
The cap was also the source of a few after-school detentions for me. If we met one of the teaching staff in the street, school rules required the boys to hold the peak and "doff" their cap. The girls wore the same cap badge but on a sort of straw, trilby type hat that was mainly navy blue with a couple of dark red bands (school colours). The boys cap was also navy blue with a dark red cross. The badge was also worn on the breast pocket of the blazer.

Dont know anything about this Company, although its quite obvious this particular brick is of premium with the white enamelled glaze together with the named inscription. The brick looks like it could have been from a public toilet facility or something similar. We do also have samples of straight forward building bricks which I can show below.
