Sunday a Day of Rest ?

Strange !

Just logged on to the site this afternoon to check !

Not one post today.

Either all at Church; In the Pub, or studying !

Or do the majority of posters 'log-on' at work, Monday to Friday ??

(Tut-Tut !!)

I remember Sgt Guest. as the School Sergeant. If memory serves, he lived in the Avenue lodge house next to Peele.

R.S.M. Cooke was certainly the school R.S.M. for the C.C.F. though.

A close source at CH has told me that there is no chance of day pupils at CH for the foreseeable future! Probably not, Plum, though I DID find it a tad strange on reading a promo for C.H. a few months ago, which seemed to infer that The School was looking to recruit MAINLY from the Home Counties !!...

All far too recent for me, I fear.

Ali G. There's a name to be conjured with.

In response to JR - I am not sure who reads this site. I think that some staff do read it, but they may not comment publicly. As for the CH Admin ( I assume by this you mean the Foundation) who knows? I only found out about this Forum by default. When I comment, I do so personally. My views do not,...

I have the one on the left, AND the one on the right.

Left one is the OLD O.B.'s tie, (given to me years ago by my late Mums cousin who was at C.H. just before WW2.

The one on the right was the official O.B.'s tie when I originally joined the O.B's in 1963, (I think ?)

Ian.

I would be intrigued to know, (given your position), if members of C.H. aadmin visit this site, and if so, any feed-back generated.

we were in Bala and Llangollen (cue lots of spitting to pronounce the ll's) I'm sure we were based in a hostel in or near Llangollen. (Between Caernarvon and Snowdon?) Nearly got into trouble with local plod when the local boyyos took exception to us chatting up their 'local-talent', (if you could ...

Did my D of E Gold in Snowdonia.

One weeks acclimatisation, and four days/3 nights under canvas !

Didn't do much to improve my love of the Celts !
