Re: CH and the Armed Services

Mark Deller RN had a distinguished career in the Navy afte rleaving in 1981 and is elder brother of Paul, current Head of Art.

Re: Expelled

Was Jason Flemyng, the actor, expelled? I seem to recall also that he was involved in a shop lifting episode when he was in Mid A?

I though the title of this topic was Roger Martin and yet the last 2-3 pages talk about Peter Webb. Digression folks! :D

Re: newspaper article re Peter Webb's departure from CH

This press article happened during my tenure as Senior Grecian in 1984. I think more Lent Term 1984. The headline was indeed "Goodbye Mr Chips" and I am pretty sure it was the SUN newspaper. I recall Baker desperately pressing me to find out who had leaked the story but not really my cup of tea that...

Re: It's time for Sillett, Cairncross and Poulton to comment.

I noticed that the fate of three Yemeni gentlemen was also posted on the same day in the Mail a few pices below Karim's report. Different approach and homicide also involved, but in some countries rape carries much harsher penalties http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6042533/Three-paedophiles-s...

Re: Bishop Peter Ball and Christ's Hospital

Ball did my confirmation in 1981 if I recall correctly. At that time the 3 Chaplains were Robson, Atkinson and Godfrey Hall. Robson went off to Wellington to join Newsome and Atkinson and Hall were then joined by Porteous.

Re: Did monitors have any real use?

:lol: Richard! Actually looking back on it, I am sure the role affected my A level results as I bombed German. Globally it was a PR role and there were fun parts like going to Amicable Socitey of Old Blues dinner; having numerous dinners at "the House" with VIPS who came to the school; singing every...

Re: Did monitors have any real use?

Interesting new topic. During my time (1978-1984) the Junior House monitors supervised prep mainly and reported you or "sent you down" if you talked after lights out! In the Senior House the role was more important and incorporated getting both dorms up after the rising bell, leading the houseto bre...

Re: On a happier note: The Good Teachers!

There is already a posting called Favourite Teachers on this Forum and so maybe this new thread is doubling up what has been said unless and being pedantic there is a difference between a good teacher and favourite one :P

In the 80s you could choose your Senior House in theory but you did not always get it!
