Re: Roger Martin

I don't think this post is drifting off line. I don't believe there should ever be a time limit on prosecutions. Yes - The Germans will actively try to prosecute their own nationals war crimes. All part of their atonement. We, (Britain) recently laid charges against an Eastern European male from Ban...

Re: Letter to the Head Master

And to add that, if money is an issue, i would try approaching some of the top law firms and asking if they will take you on pro bono. Most large law firms do pro bono work and a case such as yours is exactly the type of thing they'll take on. If successful, you'll likely have a junior solicitor or...

Re: CH and flu

in the mid 80's we were all used as a human trial for a drug called Amantadine (with parents permission) I cant remember if it was a double blind trial with some getting placebos (it was a a small red tablet) or just we all got the drug - i do remember a graph of admission to the infirmary for flu ...

Re: Expelled

I think pupil expulsion is treated by The School as a fire-bucket, sand and ostrich syndrome, Looks far better for The School as well !

A bit like when school staff are caught being a bit naughty with the pupils !!!!!

Anyone know where "nonce" comes from?
It's not very clear is it, but it is clear where they went to teach.

PRICELESS !!!!

Re: doesnt want us to visit

Does anyone remember the cartoon strip Touchline Dads in an adult comic called Red Card which was a sort of sporting version of Viz? The school probably doesn't want your presence on the touchline in case you all start behaving like a bunch of footie hooligans and embarrassing the kids. Maybe Touch...

Re: Help the newbie!

Welcome to The Forum.

As a Moderstor and and an 'Oldie' on here I'm afraid I can't help much either.

Just keep ringing The School. I'm sure there will be someone there at some point.

Re: Expelled

Back on thread. In my day when people were expelled they were sent straight to the Sicker from their houses after being given the grim (or welcome) news, before being sent home. This always struck me as being a bit like spending your last night in the condemned cell next to the gallows before being...

Re: Expelled

Bromine/Bromide in tea was the rumour in my all boys day at CH. I have since been told that it's use is pointless and more likely to cause physical harm. At the risk of offending the Mary Whitehouse brigade amongst us, sexual relations between 13 to 16 year olds these days is normal. Illegal but nor...

Post a comment to the above ?

Hmm - maybe not other than to say I'm now not surprised to see why The School went downhill rapidly.

Re: Expelled

Just before the barn fire (which I didn't know about) there was a big drugs story in the papers about CH. Maybe '88 or '89. I think maybe 6-7 were expelled instantly for smoking pot..... despite alcohol being widely tolerated and far more deadly for 14-15yr olds. No idea how it got in the papers be...

Re: Roger Martin

Quite possibly, but I wasn't aware of it at the time, and at the time I wasn't married to Miss Marple who came into my life in the late 60's and is almost a good enough investigator as I am !!

Re: It's time for Sillett, Cairncross and Poulton to comment.

The part of Baker’s letter (which is dated 24th February 1984) that relates to Webb reads as follows: “ I write to inform you that, with regret, I have received and accepted the resignation of Mr. P J H Webb. Mr Webb has taught at Christ’s Hospital for eighteen years, and has made a considerable co...
