I well remember Cherniavsky - I had him for history for a while. He was promoted to Housemaster of BaB - shock of curly hair and somewhat distracted manner. I believe he is now deceased. Nice guy. Man you go back.... Chern was my Housemaster in Barnes B for the first year but was replaced by Chris ...

I recall films in Big School, not a bad selection; Bridge of the River Kwai, Dr Strangelove, The Horse's Mouth (Alec Guiness), The Rebel (Tony Hancock I think), Mon Oncle (Jacques Tati?) all run by Paddy Cullen on a back projector, i.e., it projected on to the back of the screen as opposed to the ci...

Precisely their concern, since they allege the name has been taken by others who are not of their persuasion.

I am sure that JT will get at least one honorary mention, along with the statistice of the most looked at subject matters, which will possibly help us refocus the magazine.
Does anyone have a better name for the Young Old Blues?

Wow! Yes, David - I do now recall the occasion tho' I guess it's at least 50 years since i last remembered it! I had a vague feeling that it might have been in Prep B Dayroom - but I expect you are right. He did all sorts of clever things with his lassoo and I remember trying them out for a year or...

Re: Tunnels and Chemicals

Ta, muchly, Simon. I spent plenty of memorable time in Nigeria trying to sort out their default and in Brazil trying to sort out Nigeria's default and in London trying to sort out Brazil's default. Now if I had known it was you I'd have asked to be excused Lagos duty; that was even worse than CH. M...

Surely, when we get to 500 we should each put in 50p so that we can get Julian a large drink of his choice.

I saw the programme but will miss the remainder as I will be abroad. Anyone know where I can get a copy? A few comments. I may have misheard but thought someone said they had a music scholarship. If so, there was no such thing in my day, when you paid for lessons unless you were in the band. Hence l...

I was always bad at recognising people by their right ear. Do you have recollections of a raid we made when in our escape we ran across a new table tennis table that was still on the floor? I think Maine A got some of our breeches at some stage and it was a return visit, led by Arthur Parker and Geo...

I stand corrected. Its just that I saw no older boys whom I might have recognised, and although my memory fails on detail, I thought the prep were the only ones to have a master accompany them when they marched in. I had expected to see Geoff Fordham or Lloyd in the line up, although maybe they were...

I assume the 1966 photo was Michaelmas term, which was the first term that Maine and Barnes were junior Houses. Up to the summer of 1966 there were still the remnants of the mixed house still in Barnes and Maine

Not sure where this came from, one of the hand me downs for the OB editor.
Anyone recognisable?

Good idea, but as I mentioned elsewhere, the CH Club had copies going back to the 1890's, all bound, and I believe there are also copies in the library. They cover two shelves, so to transfer them from editor to editor would be quite weighty. What would be a good project is to get them all scanned, ...

In what was the CH Club room at CH, there are bound copies of all the Blues going back to almost the beginning, so if anyone needs to see them, they are available.
