Re: Memories of Corks - chapel organ 1950s

Corks and Buck left under a cloud during the Seaman Reforms I recall. I'm not sure Corks was overly concerned. He became a deacon or something similar at St Paul's Cathedral and claimed he could legally drink 24 hours a day. I went out with him to several very interesting watering holes but didn't ...

Re: CH and Psychiatry

A very interesting thread, so while we are on the subject...... How would dyslexia be treated at Horsham ? I don't think it was even recognised in my days at CH, yet MANY famous people ARE dyslexic. The first I remember to 'come-out' was the beautiful and accomplished actress Susan Hampshire. I kno...

Re: CH and flu

My wife and I have had yearly flu shots for the last decade or so. Sometimes it apparently works and sometimes not. , we get repeated automated texts from the surgery. The actual vaccine is slightly different from year to year depending on the WHO's predictions. Yes - it is formulated on what they ...

Re: The Story of Old Blues in North America - BCOB Book Project

I recollect there were several Americans at CH under identical circumstances to those mentioned above. Yes, there was a new one every year. Never one in Col A in my time and as they would have been in different classes I never realised that they got their buttons. I remember that the one who arrive...

Re: UK’s Top Schools - where’s CH?

I looked up CH on 10 other such sites (which listed between 10 and 100 different schools). CH was mentioned on only 3 of the 10 sites , with ratings as follows. No. 17 (Top IB schools – large cohort [ whatever that is ]) No. 23 (Top co-ed boarding schools) No. 68 (Best independent schools) In spite...

Re: DAMBUSTERS AND C.H.

PSG was certainly there when I was but I had no idea one could opt out of CCF. I did the 3 years in the CCF then worked in the library classifying books. I did not think about it at the time but it must have been one of the PSG works. I remember that there was the opt-out option but thought that it...

Re: English is from England, not elsewhere

Considering this was in reference to the British Columbia Old Blues it seems a bit parochial to find it hard to associate OC with something Canadian as a first guess. Yes, Mike! I had guessed at what turned out to be the final answer but there must be well over a hundred listed ansers to OC. Of cou...

Re: Date of sentencing of Webb and Burr

It is a shame at that point he did not wish to reveal the extent of the abuse to save putting the others through the trauma of having to disclose as a result of original conviction. I don't know if it is standard practice country wide but round here the judge is informed of any defendant's prior co...

English is from England, not elsewhere

I am in a consant battle with our cousins on the other side of the pond about misuse of our language and then David Taplin enters the fray. In fact I didn't fault his proper English but for one short inclusion in: The British Columbia Old Blues (BCOB) founded in 1930 via an initiative of HM Sir Will...

Re: how to appeal an Unduly Lenient Crown Court Sentence

In view of the lenient sentence AND the fact of the previous conviction, thie may have been already passed back to the AG. The fact that it MIGHT have already been passed back should not inhibit another appeal to the AG. especially in the event that nobody else has requested a review. Indeed if the...

Re: CH, Assisted Boarders and the TES

Oliver asks how many ABs are currently at CH. I don't think this is of great concern; PROVIDED those pupils fit the "needs" requirement then surely they should be as welcome as any other. It simply takes some of the strain off other funding sources. As for the concept of mixing the well -off with th...

Drugs in sport

Most games at CH (rugby union as an example) are run under the regulations of the relevent organisation and most if not all have strict rules regarding drugs. I was one of many, perhaps thousands of, pupils with asthma and with asthma even walking to the loo can be difficult during an attack which c...
