Re: Ajaz Karim found guilty

I cannot find any reason for deletion or editing of the above . BUT...... please think twice before typing. There could still be the chance of an appeal after sentencing is handed down. One good thing about 'Operation Yew Tree' and the BBC scand a ls is that it has persuaded people to speak out at ...

Re: Ajaz Karim found guilty

I remember going along to a House Baths session when I was 14 and being struck down by a nasty bout of cramp in one of my legs while I was swimming, so I hauled myself out onto the side of the pool. The master who was supervising the session saw that I had cramp, so he hunkered down at the poolside...

Re: Ajaz Karim found guilty

As the father of 3 daughters I have one observation.

How come, in a co-educational environment, a male teacher was apparently allowed to massage or even mix with naked or semi naked female pupils without a female (teacher, matron) being present?

Re: Can you identify this pupil from 1969?

Sadly Mike Trubridge, the originator of this thread, is shown as 'no longer with us' in the newsletter I received from Gina Skillings today. I'm shocked having met him again in 2012 at the 40 years on event. At that time he still looked fit enough to be eminently capable of giving a good account of...

Re: Old Blue Rugby 'Blues'

Is there a list of 1st XV captains? There is for OBRFC 1st XV Captains, but I don't know about CH Captains. There is an excel sheet showing every known OBRFC official from 1873, plus a list of known CH 1st XV captains, but very incomplete. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvELOxEU5ZhmdF...

Re: Old Blue Rugby 'Blues'

This name may not be applicable strictly, given Ali's OBRFC membership qualification for his list, but, dragging myself out of the seventies to somewhere near the present day, Andrew Higgins had a distinguished career for a number of Premiership clubs, most notably Bath, and also represented England...

Re: Old Blue Rugby 'Blues'

Having been for a while the OBRFC archivist I compiled this list from club fixture cards, the Blue and other documents: Old Blues rugby players of note: Biddell. W ‘Bill’ Cambridge University Constantine. Hugh A Leicester, England Trial Costin. Maurice O Eastern Counties Cullen. John Cambridge Univ...

Re: Who's Blue

Are there any plans to publish an updated Who's Blue ? It is now 22 years since the last one in 1996. I believe that there are Data Protection ramifications which have developed since 1996. Indeed even more stringent regulations become operative in May. Despite pointing out the issue I do not profe...

Re: HOUSEY SLANG

Anyone else watch 'Endeavour' last night? Plenty of references to 'squits.' Maybe Roger Allam (Chief Inspector Thursday in the programme) had a say in the script. Squit or squirt? Squirt is slang used outside CH and has a similar meaning My hearing is not the best but it sounded like 'squit' to me....

Re: Date of sentencing of Webb and Burr

My view is that historic cases of any sort ought not to be prosecutable. Seriously? Yes, seriously. I live in a country where the right not to be tried after a certain period is regarded with the same sort of reverence as the British regard trial by jury. Britain and Ireland are, I think, the only ...

Re: Date of sentencing of Webb and Burr

My query is to do with a point of law, rather than to do with Messrs. Burr & Webb. But self-evidently my query relates to a type of offence somewhat different from theirs, which is why I've chosen my words so carefully. My apologies for misunderstanding your point. I wrongly interpreted it as speci...
