What's going on?

The club voted to cease it's activities and is now winding up its business. It should formally cease to exsist on either June 30th or July 31st, can't remember which. I had tried to keep all aware with blow by blow account in the Blue, but it is in the boring bit so maybe people didn't look. All clu...

Annual Blue

Don't forget that the first Annual Blue is not out until October, covering the school year 2004/5 and will cost money.
The Blue I have produced is the last financed by the CH Club and has no current school news, although I have included House Notes of the last century.

Band Photo

I am not in photo and cannot remember being in a similar photo, so it was before I joined the band. I belive that Roger Dowsett, whose memorial concert will take place in Southwark Cathedral in September, is the trumpet player on the right hand side of the second row. "Joe" Curtis of cymbal fame als...

1960 Band

Not sure if it is not a year later as the bass drummer is Pete Ledeboer, and Robin (Joe) Curtis is on cymbals. I cannot see the other bass drummer, but it might have been Nick Ledeboer.
You may be right but...
Bnady didn't change from one year to the next.

What's going on?

I would like to support Julian in that despite what appears not to be happening, things continue to move forward, probably not at the rate everyone would like. I have had production problems with the Blue, due down to distance and the fact that the printers changed software when they upgraded some h...

Drums & Drum Majors

Although I played trombone, (60 - 66), I have just been to Speech Day for the first time since 66, and took a video of the band to show my local village band. As such, I noticed the Drum Majors and their movements semed very similar to those of my day, with the exception that I cannot remember the o...

Archive of the Blue

My apologies. I worked in admin and I felt that scanning 2 and a half shelves of books would take some time, especially if there are other, more important time users. I am sure there are now better methods of doing it, but none that I have seen at CH. There is no doubt that the Blue will eventually ...

Archive of the Blue

If you are interested at looking at the Blue, going back to the very early editions, but not a complete set, then they are all sitting in the CH Club roon in CH. I assume that they will be kept when the Association comes into effect. I used them for House Notes for the upcoming Blue. Nobody is going...

The Old Blue

As Editor of the OB section of the Blue and of the future Old Blue, I should really have got involved in this forum a long time ago, but.... I left CH in 1966 and the UK in 1973 and still live abroad so I am in limited contact with both CH and the UK. This is good in that I have no hang ups about wh...

Living Abroad

I left CH in 1966 and at that time made my first trip abroad, to Paris. After university I did voluntary service overseas with CIIR, based in Central America. Back in the UK I married my Latin girlfriend and joined an international bank. Up to that moment I had given no thoughts to living permanentl...
