NEW HOUSE NAME

I would name a new house after Etta Harris, who attended CH Hertford in the late 1890s. On leaving, Etta went to university and then became a Latin teacher in a large day school in West Hartlepool. On 16 December 1914 at 8.10am three German warships started a bombardment of West Hartlepool, a barbar...

BARNES WALLIS

cstegerlewis said, apropos Barnes Wallis, that: "He wasn't 'famous' until the 1940's." That is incorrect. He was very famous in the early 1930s as the designer of R-100, the finest and most successful British airship ever built - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R-100 among many other sites. It was ...

AUSSIE OLD BLUE

Greg, I happened to note your messages on the Forum. You might like to make contact by e-mail with Roger Wickins on "rrog1213@bigpond.net.au" who keeps a friendly eye on Oz-based Old Blues and even organises trips in the bay which, apparently, involve free-flowing beer. Incidentally, I knew 3RAR whe...

ADDRESSES

Julian,
If other people could learn to explain complex computer matters so clearly and succinctly the world would be a far happier place. Many thanks - "alles klar" as Pongo Littelfield taught us to say.

LATEST NEWSLETTER

Can anyone explain this, please? I received my copy of the CHA Newsletter at 0139 on 1st August - no problem there. However, I note that in the address box it is labelled as "From. zm@christs-hospital.org.uk" and "To: zm@christs-hospital.org.uk" with my name/address appearing nowhere. I am NOT compl...

CHA NEWSLETTER

Concerning receipt of the newsletter today when there is nobody in the office. There is something very odd about the transmission of the Newsletter, which is related to the computer system used at CH and in the Counting House. My understanding is that in the past when Zoe/Wendy tried to send the new...

However I have little doubt that the Advisory Committee will rally round, man the fort, fight the good fight to the last man or woman, leave no stone unturned, get DRW Memorial Service invites out to all the CH Hertford girls who who knew her but didn't receive them and try to ensure that the place...

WHAT'S IN A NAME?

"Wth Zoe gone to pastures sure to be greener and Wendy away (I hope it is not sick leave) isn't Sam Rider around to run the office (or has he gone also?)? Given his responsibilities I would have thought that he would have a keen interest in ensuring that anything being circulated to OBs including t...

SECOND CHA MANAGER RESIGNS!!

Old Blues will be surprised to hear that Zoe Mitchell has handed in her notice. This means that the CHA has got through two managers in its first two years of existence, which must be something of a record! The great majority of old pupils societies/associations I have contacted seem to have no diff...

LOWEST PIC

The lowest pic shows one future Rear-Admiral (Bawtree) and one future Major-General (Stone) and if my memory serves me aright the chap with glasses on the left side of the left hand rank (directly above the civilian blowing his nose) is none ofther than Dave-by-the-Sea!

B M WHAYMAN

Further to my previous posting, I have noticed that B.M. Whayman is on the World War Two War memorial at Christ's Hospital, giving his years at the school as 1924 to 1931. I have done some research into Old Blues recently. The school magazine is "The Blue" which at that period did not carry illustra...

WHAYMAN

Rosie, You may already have found this, but in case you haven't the details of the death of Brian Maurice Whayman (who I presume to be your cousin) are on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission site. Go to Google and type in CWGC. Enter that site and go to "Search our records." After that it is simp...

UNMARRIED TEACHERS

May I offer just a small word of caution? There were many women who lost either fiancees or boy-friends in the war, particularly in the RAF, who could not bring themselves to take up with another man because of their memories and a feeling of loyalty. Thus, there were many "spinsters" in the late 19...
