Wendy Fryer

Before filing away the latest copy of 'Old Blue', I double checked the Obits and noticed Wendy Fryer, Infirmary nurse 52-53.

I'm assuming this must have been the wife of my Housemaster, NTF.

Can anyone confirm or deny this ?

Re: The Old Blue 2018

Thanks Guys for the flag-pole-flag update.
Just shows one can't keep fully up to date with all legislation changes.

Re: The Old Blue 2018

On the 'flags' issue, as I recall, anyone has the right to fly the Cross of St. George, but MUST have local authority permission to fly the Union Standard, (Union Jack).

Identification.

Just thought I'd add MY point of view at the age of nearly 72. I don't have a pass-port. I have no need for or want one. I have no wish to leave the UK. I was forced to relinquish my FULL UK driving licence after suffering a stroke and reaching 70 years of age. I have been heavily involved with anim...

Re: Politics

The mere thought of another vote or referendum and the possibility of the UK having to continue being ruled by European despots, alcoholics and wannabe's sickens me to the core. I have no problem with some sort of trade deal on tariffs as long as it isn't all in their favour. I don't want their cour...

Re: Aiglon College

Incredible justice system in Switzerland. I think Richard McDonald was imprisoned for a year yet never charged with anything. Quote justifying this from the Swiss police, ""This is Switzerland after all. Staying here is better than a hotel. Our inmates have television, radios and some even have CD ...

Re: Politics

Brexit will happen or there will be either a revolution or a civil war.

Another referendum ? Best of three ? Best of five ? Let Comrade Corbynski take over ?

I'd sooner let the Saudi's take over.

They don't muck about !!!!!

Re: The Old Blue 2018

Thanks John H. That helps a lot.

I wonder if CH will take any heed of this thread ? I fear probably not.

Re: Sometimes I forget

I can't remember any showers as such in Coleridge B. Just the two baths and the one long trough with tin basins, and that was it. Then there were the two stand up urinals and the one semi shielded sit down bog.

Re: A letter from the CHOBA board

Notwithstanding the above, I do think that justice is the supreme value. As was clearly confirmed by Lord Justice Scrutton in an appeal case. The difficulty is defining "justice". I suspect that rape victims would consider justice to be the castration of their attackers - others may disagree. Stead...
