I hope we have digressed from the original topic of this thread. Otherwise, I feel that their reluctance would have some justification.

No, John, David means me. And I do remember - it was Colin Blogg. He had at least two large exercise books with sheets of perforated paper from diverse institutions, all mounted in true philatelic style with stamp hinges.

Can anybody recognise these?

From around 1960. I suspect this is somewhere near Arundel, and it might possibly be the summer term whole hoilday. It looks like a father with two sons. Can anybody from that era recognise them?

Does this bring back memories?

Anyone who was at Horsham in the fifties will recognise this - but please don't tell us what memories it brings back to you. I found it among some of my old photographic stuff, used to wrap quarter-plate glass negatives.

Next to Kit is the master who had been a professor in Spain That's Mr Herbert, I think. I ... would have thought that this was autumn 1960 or summer 1961. However Ashton already had 3 S levels then and was doing another three but is shown without buttons. As I remember things, which is admittedly n...

Col A - is this 1960?

I think this must be summer 1960, but I'm sure somebody will correct me if I'm wrong. I'm sure it's not as late as 1961, and it could hardly be earlier than 1959.

Re: Wearing of C H uniform

That cravat was never, so far as I remember, called a cravat. It was described as a "blue square", I think, in the "required clothes" list that the school sent to parents. I'm not sure that it wasn't officially a "blue silk square", although by the time I was at CH (1954) the squares were probably m...

Re: Band music query

More about Gerald Crossman - you can hear something of his here http://www.turnipnet.com/mom/bande_20jul64_geraldcrossman.mp3 at about 2m12s. It's a piece called Banda Español - but I doubt whether it was ever used for lunch parade. Although Gerald Crossman has nothing whatever to do with CH, you mi...

Re: Band music query

Marcha Español, by Gerald Crossman ... is the WRONG ANSWER. Unfortunately, it's the only one that Google has offered me. I know it's wrong, because it's an accordion solo. Crossman was a prolific composer of accordion pieces. I am confident that accordions in our time would not have been tolerated o...

Careless. I made very sure that I got a full year between 66 and 68. I don't know how many I have left, so I don't like to miss one.

Michael; John Wexler who left Col A in about 1961 -2 has posted a link to his personal photos which are on an outside site - have you looked at those?

Re: Michael Cherniavsky

I'm glad I don't carry the responsibility of deciding which articles should be published and which should be deleted. I did see the "offending article" before it was deleted. It suggested things that I had not been aware of, so it did surprise me. On the other hand, it was no more outrageous than a ...

Re: Jack Hards and Wells, Prep B bootroom

I cannot believe that these people could seriously have run a barbering business with voluntary customers. That would have been utterly irrelevant in the school's thinking. Hair had to be cut for the same reasons that operate in the army: cleanliness and uniformity. The essential requirements were ...

Re: Book Cricket and Scoring

All this resulted from all boys having learned to score for a cricket match. Each match, whether the school first XI or a house third XI, had to have a scorer, with an official record kept. All junior boys learned to score by having to act as scorers occasionally ... Later there would be non-athlet...
