Re: Clean clothes at Horsham in the 40s & 50s

I think the line was set at 5"; I think that it was to save fuel.
The trough was certainly used when I was in Col A, 46-53.

Re: Cod Liver Oil and Malt

Re: Politics

I feel that some of the prob lem is, that we are all paying too little Income Tax.
In 95-96 the standard rate was 25%, and came down gradually till 2007-08 when it was 22%. Then there was a 10% cut to 20%.
Now we cannot afford anything!

Re: Giving back to CH - some ideas....

Not a bad idea, but the Lord Mayor may find it difficult to visit; and the St Matthews day service would be more difficult.
The site could constructed to accomodate larger numbers, so we could reverse the drop in numbers when Hertford was closed.
The economics might be difficult.

Re: frieze in dayroom of infirmary

I think that the sanatorium was bombed and destroyed in the war.

Re: Daily Timetable

The same pattern was followed from 1946, except 3rd prep.
Col A had shoe cleaning (and inspection) before first prep.

I am told if the fund raising efforts could raise £300 million, we would not need ffps. Cambridge recently raised 1/2 billion pounds. UnfortunatelyBlues have tended t...
