Re: Roger Martin

Isn’t 6 months or so fairly average for this? You are pretty much spot on Plum. Since Operation Yewtree the through put of sex offences in the Crown Court is between 60 and 70% of the workload. Cases with young witnesses are supposed to be tried within 8 weeks. Where the accused in in custody the c...

Re: "More than a Brother" A H Buck and Edmund Blunden

Sounds like I'm going off topic but wait... I'm a great admirer of Holly Walsh, comedienne, author and OB. I have NEVER heard her talk about her Horsham days. I'd love to sit down and have a drink and chat with her about her recollections of coeducational days at CH. I bet it'd be a real eye opener...

Re: Roger Martin

My assessment is that there were at least 50 from World War 2 on Richard If your assessment of the possible total number of abuse victims is anywhere near correct (and I believe you are probably privy to information that supports this figure) then we have a scandal that completely dwarfs the Amplef...

Surely JR you mean: was he allowed to jump?


I think that would depend on the HM in situ at the given time.

Re: Roger Martin

Roger Martin is at the Hove Trial Centre tomorrow at not before 12 noon. He appears before HHJ Jeremy Gold, no doubt because HHJ Christine Henson is not sitting. HHJ Jeremy Gold. Just looked him up. Quite an impressive legal bio. I won't compare his juidicial past to HHJ Christine Henson, who I hav...

Re: Congratulations to this year's Grecians and their new Headmaster

Or to put it another way, when my wife and I were having a weekend drink in our local with an afore-mentioned on here OB, a knowledgeable person, outside our circle leaned across to ask what we were talking about. When the name of CH was mentioned, his response was, "Oh, that school in Horsham where...

Re: Expelled

It's the great thing about leaving school JR. They can't tell you what to do. And if they do try to tell you what to do and you ignore them, they can't beat you for it. .... and I didn't even bother to tell them that I was leaving. I just didn't bother going back at the start of the 1963/64 academi...

Re: Expelled

I can remember only one expulsion in my time: Lamb B 1948-55. Ian McAuley was just junior to me and I knew him reasonably well. He was always up to something. On one occasion he talked me into going with him to the swimming baths at about midnight, where some of the Irish maids were supposed to be ...
