Re: Proposed demolition of old CH kitchens & Wardrobe

From a post by Matthew Holdsworth on Facebook: ... the kitchens have not been used since around 2008 as they were 'life expired' and since that time the kitchens have been a huge portacabin in approximately the location of the Deps club next to Coleridge.

Re: Time flies

Funny. I thought that you joined the same time as me (or even before). I went in 1964.

Re: Clean clothes at Horsham in the 40s & 50s

I can't help for the 40's and 50's, but in the 60's I'm pretty sure that it was pants and socks twice a week and shirts only once (I never wore a vest). Sheets were top to bottom once a week, I think. So one clean sheet and pillow case each time. I can't remember about the bands, though.

Re: Housey Slang.....

We used 'drut' in Peele B in the 60's. Whether it came up from Maine A when some of them transferred to Senior houses, I don't know.

Re: Can you identify this pupil from 1969?

A long time after the original post I know, but I think the Button Grecian could well have been John Churchill who was (I think) Senior Grecian at the time.

Re: ENGLAND RUGBY

I think it tracks - and transmits to the trainers - their movements around the field and also monitors their heart function etc. etc.

Re: Ghost stories etc?

In the 60's we also used it for any boys with a West Country accent: Bocker Smith, Bocker Jones etc.

Watched the match in France. Even the French commentators went overboard about his performance! Awesome!!

Re: Cod Liver Oil and Malt

Yes! Apparently from the Anglo-Norman French 'raisins de Corauntz' 'grapes of Corinth' - where they first came from.

Re: RICHARD "Killer" FRY RIP

To be fair; I was there in the 60's, but not in Lamb A. But we were always led to believe that he was called 'Killer' because of his war record.

Re: Penguin-Bashers: Did They Really Exist or Were They a Myth?

I was there from 1964 to 1970. I don't think I ever heard of Muntham House at that time.

Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

From my limited knowledge, I would imagine that the answer to question one is yes, and to question two, no. He might possibly earn in a year what a few of the highest-paid footballers get in a week!
