Re: A day by the seaside (aka Husband's folly)

Please be very careful on this specific thread. Tim stated that he is leaving this forum which I have noted before that it is his perogotive so to do, and I fully understand his family grief. However, can we please now all move on and wait to see what the future holds. There cannot be any more whit...

Re: Transcripts

In hindsight, maybe Witness 1,2.3 etc might have been better.

Re: Transcripts

I would of thought it worrying for a Judge after having all previous sentences given in an on-going trial increased by the AJ.

Possibly getting near a 'slap on the wrist' time.

Re: Transcripts

Certainly an error in that transcript as far as I can see.

Re: Who Knew What?

It depends how you define who, knew, and what. On one occasion, probably in 1978 or 1979, the entire dining hall united in a chant of 'Pedo!, Pedo!, Pedo!, Pedo!, ...' while Peter Webb attempted to officiate at tea. This was extremely loud with a lot of shouting, banging of cutlery on tables, etc. ...

Re: A WAY AHEAD?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rupert_Jackson Lives in Surrey, Eh ? Not a bad choice. A touch older than me, so our paths may well have crossed at Horsham, though I don't re-call the name, apart from the fact his surname was also my Mothers maiden name. No connection as far as I am aware. My mothe...

Rupert Jackson is a now retired appeal court judge and OB to boot. He would be ideal.
Sounds to be just the man, but wouldn't some people say there was a conflict of interest ?

Re: A WAY AHEAD?

To be totally honest, I've never ever had the greatest confidence in any Government proposed enquiry. I still think the Grenfell Enquiry will be decorated with a large coating of whitewash, finger pointing and blaming all but the real guilty. But Hey-Ho , thats allegedly democracy for you when polit...

Re: Management knowledge of the Husband/Dobbie cases

JR. I am slightly surprised at the warnings given to you by the Clerk to the Court. My understanding is that what is said is, with exceptions, public knowledge and if required a transcript should be available. The exceptions include if a witness is not named, information which could lead to their n...

How about you, JR? Did you ever play the whistle again after giving up refereeing?

Tried playing the bugle again, several years after leaving CH, but the Missus said it ruined my kissing lips ! :shock:

Re: When You Left CH, Did You Cease to Have Access to the Musical Instrument You'd Learned How to Play?

I was a ‘cellist and sang a lot at CH - music was definitely one of the biggest and best things I took away from CH, and my vast majority of close friends were from music. I’d been lucky enough to play a loan instrument whilst at CH, which was amazing quality. When I left my 18th birthday present f...
