I could have this totally wrong  @moe19 but I my memory says my mate, Alex Third, who went to St. Bede's once introduced me (about 1965-66) to a lad nicknamed Stash, about the same age as us ( 17 in 1965) and he was built like the  'Brick Shit House', compared to us. I'm sure Alex said he was heavily into weight training - they are No 3 & 4 in the c1953 class photo in this album.  No 1 added @moe19 + Teresa Nicholson, Facebook Bedlington Remembered commented :- 'Think number 9 is Terry Nicholson, number 1 Sam Kidd? Number 11 John O Neil?'

I knew a lad called Stan who had the nickname Stash, he was in to body building and weight lifting, he went to work for the old Newcastle Breweries and used to move hogs-heads and barrels like they were made of cotton wool.

He ended up in later life living in Morpeth and was well known, people often refered to him as the gentle giant as he was a right canny lad .

I have not seen him around lately so hope he is still going.

I remember Stash too, moe. Posted about him here - 

Doesn't, or didn't someone with a similar surname live in Hazelmere Avenue, in the first block on the right as you turn in from opposite the Ridge Farm (now Co-op)?
