The "Quallie" had three phases. First there was an Intelligence Test, second there was an Arithmetic exam which was followed by an English exam. I didn't finish the intelligence test. It flummoxed me. One question was,

...awarded for Session 1963-64
I suspect Charles is one year older than my brother Kenneth McCurrach who also attended Liff Road school.
Thank you for the journey back in time.
After further research I have found that there had been previous occasions when both a boy' and a girl's Dux Medal was awarded but I still have doubts about mine.
I was 10 years later but the culture was very similar in Stoneywood primary. Our heidie had been a desert rat and when, I presume he was bored, he would dismiss the class teacher and tell tales of his wartime exploits. I too was belted for being 'clever'. The d in £sd stands for dinarii the Latin for penny. Thanks to google and not a classical education!
