Re: Housing Market

Perhaps the english way of buying/selling houses need to be changed to something like the Scottish system (perhaps someone could tell me if its as good as people say?). Well, the Scottish system does work quite well a lot of the time, but it has its own problems. First of all, the idea that you can...

Re: The Census

I had always thought, that Yiddish was a Central European dialect of Hebrew, mixed with German (Cf. Dutch and Afrikaans) I do not imagine that Yiddish is the national language of Israel ---- perhaps some OB of Jewish origin, will enlighten me ? Hebrew is indeed the national language of Israel, but ...

Re: Horsham 1954-62

Some of the faces are slowly coming back to me but I'm guessing to a certain extent W78 Middle row right Patterson, Fair hair next to him: Paul Wade, next to him with shiny hair, Lyle Middle row left I thought was a poster here but since he hasn't admitted his crime I'll leave it. The boy lying dow...

I think now, having had a good look, that it's Ian Packington. I think this must be 1960 or 1961.

Re: Horsham 1954-62

For reasons I cannot begin to imagine, the name "Taylor" suddenly sprang into my head in relation to the racer on the far right. Does that make sense to anyone? I think the person in shorts behind him is Fawcett (Col. B), and I suspect the person in the CCF beret is Paul Wade (Col. A). I'll attach ...

Re: Horsham 1954-62

Thankyou all for the names. My memory of those days is fairly rusty, but I think the pancake race does show Gerald Ashton next to Nick Cox, and on the other side of him I'd suggest (hesitantly) Blogg, Pearl and Jenkins, all of Col A.

Re: Horsham 1954-62

That particular bridge was not over the Arun. So far as I remember, it was built across a dry dell here http://tinyurl.com/rexsitech54-62 . Falling off it would have been nasty. Perhaps that's why the exercise moved to the Arun in later years. I guess Wakefield's must be as strong a memory for my co...

Re: Horsham 1954-62

Do I recognize the ColA junior housemaster, one Mr Vinen, reclining on the cricket photos? Yes, that's right. And thanks for the other names. Since there has obviously been some interest in these pictures, I've added another bunch. With these pictures being on public view on Flickr, I haven't inclu...

Thanks for the identification. I'm quite surprised to see (from Flickr's statistics) how many people have visited these photos, so I hope I might get a few more names for faces which have escaped my memory.

Horsham 1954-62

As a side effect of going through my parents' vast collection of old photos, I've found a number of pictures from their visits to me at school. Unsurprisingly, they are very ordinary photos showing very little that would be worth posting to this forum. If anybody feels like browsing them for nostalg...
