In the Prep houses in my day, Matron was Miss Haigh. On reflection now, she seemed quite young for the post.

Re: The band leading the People’s Procession at the Cenotaph tomorrow

My wife has found a clip of the band at the cenotaph yesterday that someone has posted on YouTube which in my view is far better than the Beebs effort.

I rarely use social media sites but it might be worth a trawl for you to find.

Unfortunately David Dimblebum hadn't done his research well enough beforehand.

His words of 'school or regiment' until someone prompted him through his ear-piece 'school' rather showed him up.

Re: Duncan Noel-Paton [FOUND]

Just spent some time going back through this thread.

I believe the large castle type house mentioned in places is Holmbush House at Faygate which is just off the dual carriageway from Horsham to Crawley.

Re: From the sublime to the ridiculous

Re: What Steve Hilton is doing these days

Nice one Freaky ! I genuinely believe we are so very near a long awaited settlement within weeks. Ireland it seems is the only stumbling block, allegedly. I was today speaking socially with people from both the North and South of Ireland. They all seemed to want a quick non religious settlement. Now...
