Oh yes we did! - and I still remember, and think of her, to this day.
She taught me a lot... probably more than I learnt in the classroom.

I didn't realise you were Steve's brother. I remember Steve well but can't remember him leaving early. He was a good friend of Graham's (thought of Graham the other day, as his uncle was Peter Osgood, who's death at a family funeral hit the newspapers recently.)
Steve introduced us to chip butties (we had never thought of putting chips in a snadwich before.)
Did look Steve up on the web the other month, I was very puzzled abouth phenomics (or however you spell his speciality area.)
I'm sure more memories will come back with time. Must edit the list of names with Howard's update.

Steve will be relieved to know that he is to be remembered for introducing Mid B to chip butties (forget the contribution to English literary criticism). I'm intrigued by this...my children also eat chip butties. I blame our thoroughy working class background and a father from Liverpool, who sadly died in 1972, the year in which the photo was taken. and just a few months after Steve left CH, following the unfortunate cannabis episode. I read it in the Telegraph at Hertford, before I realised my own brother was involved. Does no one have any recollection of it? I'm sure there were others whose Ch careers also came to an untimely end?

I don't remember the cannabis incident, (probably pre-senile dementia, or senile dementia more likely) it obviously didn't knock his acedemic career off course. There were other cannabis incidents and expulsions the detals of which I can't remember either.
I do remember Steve mentioning his Liverpool ancestory but I think you were living in Bognor, which he hated (Why would anyone move from Liverpool to Bognor?).

I think that Pullinger is 6th from the left in the back row, and on checking the thread it seems this has been spotted before. Sorry about that.

Thanks, I have updated my list as best I can, only puzzle ir raises, is the person 3 to the right of Pullinger called Knaggs or Stange?
Still waiting to see if HH can give an opinion on some of the missing names.

Mid B 1972

Post by Michael » Sun Jun 11, 2006 9:09 pm

Think I can add a few more names to the photo:

Top row - from right to left - Skinner, Sealtiel, Agnew,Powell,Searing

Next to Keith Stratton is Jimmy Chuang - who sadly died in a house fire many years ago - can't remember when.

Bottom row - ?, Ray Chatlani, Baker, McDaid, Burgess, ?,?, Nick Rawlings, Ruper Lane, ?, Baker

Think that is right....

Thanks Michael, I have updated the list on page 3 as best I can.
Still hope that HH will come up with some names for the photo.

Now you mention it I think he may have had a sister at Hertford.

Middleton B in the Feudal Period

Post by Rex » Sat Aug 26, 2006 6:07 am

Only just discovered this thread.

The St Matthew's Day pic and the house photo both seem to have been taken in Michaelmas 1971 (not 72) and show Mid B as it was a year before I entered it in September '72. The boy behind the cups, also to be seen swinging along at the centre of the St Matthew's Day shot, is not me as Richard suggests but the late Matthew Scott-Hawksley.

The junior boys in the front row of the house photo are (L to R) Paul Dunwoody, Ray Chatlani, Chris Baker, Mick McDaid, Mark Burgess, Philip Coad (not Roger Highfield, who was still in Barnes B), Adrian Gray, Matthew Scott-Hawksley, Nick Rawlings, Rupert Lane, Keith Searing, Trevor Moore and Jon Steyn.

Recognise a lot of the other faces but will send details to Andrew in a PM so he can add them to his overall list.

In the marching photo the folk I can identify are Matthew S-H; in front of him Adrian Gray; in front of him Ali Burns (with Paul Lewis next to him, and Mark Burgess visible over his shoulder); and in front of him Mick McDaid, with a serene-looking bespectacled Des Lockyer adjoining his left shoulder. In the Col A ranks on the left of the picture I recognise Andrew Fort and (surely?) Paul Cornish.

In fact I was in Hunt B, not Maine A, but I can see how the confusion arose: my best friend at that time, the late Edgar Newman, was in Maine A and I probably spent a vast amount of time there with him, developing our intricate private mythology.
