Re: What Were You Useless At?

I'm sure I was supposed to have had history lessons at CH but I simply cannot remember any classes, any teacher trying to instil anything into me or anyone else having anything to do with history. 1066 was taught in primary schoool - not CH though Shakespeare did contribute. That said, I suppose I ...

Is Moreton Peto still alive? He would be over 90, surely.
He certainly was 2 years ago - his niece was at my son's wedding!

Re: What Were You Useless At?

Latin...... so much so that I took extra english in the 3rd Form!!!!

Looking back - I was terrible at interpersonal relations........... mind you, I'm not much better now and thats after I've worked out that I'm not really an extrovert but a deep introvert!!!!!!

Re: British Boarding Schools Harmful?

[/quote] A drunken 'idiot' was giving me massive grief in my local the other day, and I remarked to a friend I was getting near the point of parking him on his @rse. Friend replied, 'Not worth it - You'd only end up inside !' to which I replied..... 'After the boarding school I attended, a couple of...

Re: British Boarding Schools Harmful?

I can't remember much that was "good" about those days, JR! :( I did enjoy my last couple of years at CH. Possibly first year in Col B was a bit daunting, and Prep B was a nightmare. Toughened me up for the world, though ! JR I can empathise with that. I went at 11, never really did settle in to AN...

Re: Does anyone on this forum go to church?

I've just caught up with this divorce argument. Can I first of all declare an interest - according to Gospel I am assured of eternal damnation as I have divorced and remarried twice! I seem to recall in the Old Testament (but cant put my finger on it at the moment) that it was permissible to divorce...

Polygamy seems to be acceptable too! Indeed :lol: Last word to Jamey.

Re: Does anyone on this forum go to church?

Neill - your comment 'from zealots, of any faith, Good Lord defend us' - with which indcidentally I heartily agree - reminds me of my father's description of the City of London motto Domine Dirige Nos. In Dad's words it meant 'Lord protect us, not God help us'. Personally I think it is Lord direct ...

Re: The Housey Special

I apologise for returning to this subject but I wonder if any one has a rough date as to when the School ceased to hire a special train to take pupils to London. I assume that normal passenger services are now used as of course they were on the Guildford and Brighton lines. Does the school now brea...

Re: CH Scouts

Rather than 're-branding' as Chris Brickel puts it - wouldnt it be more honest to close the Scouts down and then let him start something else up.

I cant see how you can 're-brand' a National Entity like a Scout Group otherwise!!
