Re: American soldiers at CH during the War

There were at least two good reasons why US servicemen’s wives (there were no ‘partners’ in the early 1960s) preferred to shop on base, at their PX store (Post Exchange). Richard; it was not a question of preferences - it was a blanket ban on leaving the base even to visit sisters and a brother who...

Re: RESEARCH

To take it a step further, can anyone remember any standard disruptions to the teaching timetable? My only recollections are: the Whole Holiday and CCF Field Day (both during Summer Term) and St Matthew's Day (Michaelmas Term). Not sure if it was the Prep only but we had a day at Climping (the seas...

Re: American soldiers at CH during the War

Re segregation of US forces (though this has nothing to do with CH): We used to spend our holidays in the 1950s at Ramsgate. This was close to the US air-base at Manston. In the evenings, the fairground which in those days spread out all along the sea-front was full of American airmen -- but only b...

Re: Michael Cherniavsky

Going back to the question of equivalents, in the late 1950's it was reckoned that a pass at Alevel (at least in the sciences) was the same standard as after a year and a half at Harvard or Yale. That said there is a major difference between UK education at this level and that in the USA. Wespeciali...

Moon landings were faked!

I saw an entry on Facebook that said the moon landings were fakes, and were directed by John Cameron. But they were very expensive because he insisted they be filmed on location.

Re:Beware a good diet

Brian and Jan were 85 years old and had been married for sixty years. Though they were far from rich, they managed to get by because they carefully watched their pennies. Though not young, they were both in very good health, largely due to Jan’s insistence on healthy foods and exercise for the last ...

Re: Official lists at CH Horsham

I remember at least two sorts of official lists of boys at CH. The other document was called a “House List.” It was a piece of paper (about 30 x 10 cm), headed by the name of the house (and year of publication?), with a list of the surnames of boys in roll order. On the same line were their initial...

By clicking on the flag I can switch languages. My French daughter in law has a French keyboard which infuriates my son, when he fo...
