Looking at these it seems that Barnes B was a bit of a clearing house.
Both Nigel Simms and Pete Brotherton were junior masters in Barnes B (did Brotherton marry a nurse from the infirmary?).
Malone was also one of the House masters when it was transforming into a junior house.
I think Carrington also passed through, but I spent most of my time trying to ignore housemasters.
I remember Geoff Bostock as he lived near me at home, and ran for the Cambridge Harriers, who I visited once when I thought I could run fast. I soon realised it wasn't fast enough.
Barnes B 25 (59 - 66)

He was engaged to one, but broke it off. So late in the day that many said he'd virtually jilted her. I heard this from Roger Martin, who shook his head and called it 'a bad business'.
