Re: WHERE IS CHOBA?

I certainly don't have the time or health with a semi-disabled wife and after suffering a stroke myself.

I certainly agree a public enquiry would be for the best. Maybe the sitting Judge could suggest such an action.

Re: What was the attraction?

Quite an interesting slant on staff types which I'd never really thought about. Some names I recognise - Many I don't. Obviously Lorimer and Rocker Ray both taught me during my tenure, as did R.A. Hewitt who taught me English and was my Junior house-master in Coleridge B and a fairly young bachelor....

I wish I could find my collection of "The Blue" magazine from that time. Even those who left in dishonour got honourable mentions in dispatches.
I've got a couple of possible Dick Emery type jokes circulating in my head, but p'raps not at this time.

Re: WHO TO CONTACT REGARDING ABUSE AT CH

JR you are not the only one, I don’t think we should be having to go to CHOBA to read such letters. I think they should remove the tag line A school like no other I certainly hope that no other schools have such a story of abuse. I certainly thought that when I looked at the letter. My initial reac...

Re: WHO TO CONTACT REGARDING ABUSE AT CH

I'm slightly concerned Julian. I haven't yet received this e-mail from the HM, so was completely in the dark when I received a PM from someone about it. I'll have to check with the school office as I think this is the second epistle that has wandered off track ! Or am I now persona non grata ???? 8)

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

Please be very careful on this specific thread. Tim stated that he is leaving this forum which I have noted before that it is his perogotive so to do, and I fully understand his family grief. However, can we please now all move on and wait to see what the future holds. There cannot be any more whit...

In hindsight, maybe Witness 1,2.3 etc might have been better.

Re: Transcripts

I would of thought it worrying for a Judge after having all previous sentences given in an on-going trial increased by the AJ.

Possibly getting near a 'slap on the wrist' time.

Re: Who Knew What?

It depends how you define who, knew, and what. On one occasion, probably in 1978 or 1979, the entire dining hall united in a chant of 'Pedo!, Pedo!, Pedo!, Pedo!, ...' while Peter Webb attempted to officiate at tea. This was extremely loud with a lot of shouting, banging of cutlery on tables, etc. ...
