Re: Old Blues Rifle Club

It looks as if we shall have:- Clive Kim Ian Alister Gerald Guy Simon Andrew David So I will enter two teams of five (I don't think we can cope with more than this anyway due to the new rules on supervision). Some will notice that we still have one space free, so if anyone else wants a go.. Cost is ...

Re: Hertford in 1881

I see that the first name on that list is "Julia Margaret Harbor" from Twickenham, my great-great-grandmother was also a Julia Harbor from Twickenham, probably related!

Could those who would like to take part let me know so that I can enter the team(s). I'm not sure how many teams we will be able to enter as most of y...

Re: Settles

The ones illustrated are actually the same as we had. I don't mean they look the same, they are the identical objects. Like the beds. It would be interesting to know just how old they were. I like the way that some of the beds had been extended in length, I would guess as the average age in the sch...

Re: Nifty trick with the house payphones

There was also thge abortive attempt at a private phone system inside the school. You could have a phone with a 3 digit number in your study for I think £5 a term, it only rang internally to other such phones, I believe O'Meara had something to do with it. Alas standard very late Saturday night tr...

Re: What Sounds & Smells Instantly Transport You Back to CH?

The theatre, at least when new, had a distinctive odour that I could only describe if I smelt it again. I went into the theatre on last year's Old Blues Day, and the "distinctive odour" was exactly the same. Not sure that I can describe it. I guess that it must be one of the materials used to build...

I have a friend, who inbetween doing other things, does the odd shift at a filling station/...
