Re: Should Christ's Hospital Stop Being a Faith School?

Which all goes to prove that Faith/Religion is far more dangerous than the occasional despotic dictator.

Re: Should Christ's Hospital Stop Being a Faith School?

I left CH in 1963, a C of E Christian, baptised and confirmed. Years passed, and I realised more people die, often violently, in the name of 'Faith'. I suppose I am basically still a 'Christian', though my wife, bought up as a Catholic is now more pagan with a dash of C of E thought. I refused to en...

Re: Did You Learn to Swear at CH? And Do You Still Eff It Today?

I knew several swear words before entering the hallowewd cloisters at Horsham, including the 'F' word, though I wasn't too sure of it's meaning.

Do I still swear today Occasionally.

Re: Clean clothes at Horsham in the 40s & 50s

I don't ever remember any water restrictions through drought during my time at CH, so I assume you are referring to the 1970's and the times of the hose-pipe bans in the south of England.

This painting is important enough to have its own Wikipedia entry. And Copley felt it important enough to paint not one, but three originals. When I was at CH, it was in the Court Room Passage, where it could be inspected close up, and probably fingered by little boys' dirty paws. This location, it...

Re: Less flamboyant CH teachers

Bogey Fryer had a dreadful temper. I remember him nearly throttling someone with his own scarf in one math class. Truly alarming. Beats Tom Keeley bashing someone in the front row over the head with a Lewis & Short. N.T. Fryer was my housemaster during my entire time in Coleridge B. Everyone knew h...
