Re: A WAY AHEAD?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rupert_Jackson Lives in Surrey, Eh ? Not a bad choice. A touch older than me, so our paths may well have crossed at Horsham, though I don't re-call the name, apart from the fact his surname was also my Mothers maiden name. No connection as far as I am aware. My mothe...

Rupert Jackson is a now retired appeal court judge and OB to boot. He would be ideal.
Sounds to be just the man, but wouldn't some people say there was a conflict of interest ?

Re: A WAY AHEAD?

To be totally honest, I've never ever had the greatest confidence in any Government proposed enquiry. I still think the Grenfell Enquiry will be decorated with a large coating of whitewash, finger pointing and blaming all but the real guilty. But Hey-Ho , thats allegedly democracy for you when polit...

Re: Management knowledge of the Husband/Dobbie cases

JR. I am slightly surprised at the warnings given to you by the Clerk to the Court. My understanding is that what is said is, with exceptions, public knowledge and if required a transcript should be available. The exceptions include if a witness is not named, information which could lead to their n...

How about you, JR? Did you ever play the whistle again after giving up refereeing?
Nope !

Tried playing the bugle again, several years after leaving CH, but the Missus said it ruined my kissing lips ! :shock:

Re: When You Left CH, Did You Cease to Have Access to the Musical Instrument You'd Learned How to Play?

I was a ‘cellist and sang a lot at CH - music was definitely one of the biggest and best things I took away from CH, and my vast majority of close friends were from music. I’d been lucky enough to play a loan instrument whilst at CH, which was amazing quality. When I left my 18th birthday present f...

Re: Management knowledge of the Husband/Dobbie cases

Well, as the oldest Moderator on this site, I have been following this thread with interest and wasn't going to comment. I see Tim said he was leaving here for good. That's his perogative, BUT , I am going to make things crystal from the start. On arrival at the Court, Richard and I introduced ourse...

Re: Today's the day

I have been back a few times since 1963. Things have changed beyond belief. The atmosphere alone is totally different. In my day, the school was almost run on military lines. I think the major change started after the departure of CME Seaman. There seemed to be a quick flurry of HM's after that, pos...

Re: Please be sensitive to those who may read these topics

Children are not responsible for abusive or neglectful things that happen to them. It is never their fault. Thank you J-J-J ! I caught up with your past yesterday talking with people on my Hove trip, and I do know the position. Children are NEVER responsible for abuse. They are prepared by other si...

Re: A day by the seaside (aka Husband's folly)

One thing I had forgotten to mention is that the court clerk let slip that the school had someone at court observing what was going on. I bet they did. It was one of two people, as you well know from my discreet enquiries Richard . My bet is on Harry Lime, aka the Third Man in the 'cheap seats'. Ma...

Re: TapaTalk installed for iPhone/Android access

Tapa talk ?? Whats that ? Is it similar to morse code, as taught by Uncle Kirby at Horsham.

It's all well beyond me. I take it that this all goes along with Andrew Neill's Snap Numpty, the Overface and Youdrain as he well advertises on 'This Week' on Thursdays, BBC1.
