Re: Jokes, please.....

A farmer named Sam was overseeing his livestock in a remote hilly pasture in Hereford when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust. The driver, a young man in a Brioni® suit, Gucci® shoes, RayBan® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window and asked the farmer, "If I ...

Re: Memorable Sermons

Sometime in the mid 1950s there was a visiting preacher, Colonel Heck (or some such name) Yes, I remember him... not because of his sermon but because he had an initial of "O" The previous week the Headmaster (HLO Flecker) had announced that Col. 'O Heck' was to visit... much laughter in chapel ...

Sorry, grumpy old me... Having looked at the subject heading I used for this thread I should have been more specific about my dismay at the lack of uniform dress code and not headed it 'The Blue 2012'. Sorry.

Re: "The Blue 2012" - Oh Dear...

Whoops - my apologies - it seems that the Grumpy Old Woman Syndrome struck again for a moment! Seriously though, I do feel that the efforts of the editorial team should merit more serious critical consideration than we have so far offered, fascinating though the subject of broadie buckles no doubt ...

Re: "The Blue 2012" - Oh Dear...

Surely the wearing of the broadie buckle at the rear qualifies as a minor change and just a continuation of the changes that you acknowledge. As far as I am concerned, changes to the uniform are made by the 'powers that be', not by the people who wear it. I blame the school for letting these change...

Thank you David, very interesting...
What next? Perhaps squits will be wearing a pair of shoes on the wrong feet.
I love the uniform and am very proud of it.
I think the school should get a grip on how the uniform is worn and instill some discipline in this matter.

"The Blue 2012" - Oh Dear...

I have just received my copy of 'The Blue - 2012'. The cover photograph makes me think that the school is ashamed of the 'Broadie Buckle'. Why is it being worn at the back? Why does the school not enforce a proper dress code? It really makes me angry... it is a nice buckle... and should be worn in t...
