Re: Letter to the Head Master

Point 4, you reference Webb leaving in 74, not 84

Re: Vikki Askew

A little aside (no names as I don't have their permission) but a female contemporary of mine whose daughter has just finished at CH, somewhat humbled Ed at a parents meeting a couple of years ago, by stating the last time they met was she used to babysit him! :lol:

Re: Bishop Peter Ball and Christ's Hospital

I was confirmed by him in Lent Term 83 I think (might have been 84), IIRC he did confirmations for several years as our local bishop. I was prepared for confirmation by Mike Porteous, who has also been convicted for activity in the 70’s (before CH) which I find amazing - All of the other recent conv...

I think TMF was referring to trips when Burr and Webb were there.
Thanks for the clarification richardb. As I posted elsewhere Webb and Burr did turn up on summer camp staying on Burr’s boat next to the campsite, but I was never on the Broads with them.

Re: Who Knew What?

That's a bit of a test, but I would say most years it was JDS, Torkington, Goodall (at least for a couple of years), 3 or 4 Old Blues who had been in Scouts and would have been Undergraduate Age, and I think Dobbie went on at least one (he also went on the Lake District Trip with the Scouts in Decem...

Re: Who Knew What?

Everyone heard the rumours about the Norfolk Broads trips, Soirry TMF, I am not sure why I am asking this, because perhaps I don't wnat to kno wthe answers, but as someone who went on these trips 3 times in the 80's is there any more on this? I don't recall anything untoward, but perhaps like other...

Re: Over on Facebook

Not true, he is as shocked and disappointed as many of us, but is concerned where he stands legally and doesn’t have a richardb to advise (as well as, as I think the moderators here will concur, time pressures meaning he hasn’t time to keep on top of it)

Re: Who Knew What?

Just been back to the ‘Curious’ thread - the letter referred to in the ITV report by one of the victims is the same letter mentioned by Richard and me above.

Re: Who Knew What?

I was a pupil at the school when Burr was moved on. Not a word was said to parents about him interfering with the pupils. The same happened with Webb. Not only was he moved on, but parents were told anything but the truth. Further to Richard’s quote I did share with the moderators a copy of the let...

Re: Christ's Hospital / The Church of England / Child Abuse

There is a name on the kimbolton link who was convicted in 2010. I am curious as to whether it is the same person who taught geography at CH in late 80’s early 90’s. The persons’ age reported seems to suggest not, but I wondered if anyone else can confirm ? (Doesn’t seem right to post the name here...

Re: Curious

I have not been here for ages, but have spent a (quite challenging) afternoon catching up with some stuff. On this particular thread, Webb turned up on Scout Summer camp as a helper in July 1984, staying on Burr's narrowboat that was moored next to the campsite. Burr was there for a few days as well...

Gaz, would love to come, but unfortunately already got 3 events that day.

I am sure it will be a success, my thoughts will be with you and you family on the day.

Re: Beating retreat, end of term.

Senior Drum Major in my day (forgotten his name could definitely do it, and also performed the 'triple toss' (3 complete revolutions in the air) during Beating retreat.

I never managed retreat, as I was not that good :oops: but did a few lunch parades before giving up.
