Re: Boys’ favourite books (& their pages) in the CH Library

Was that the same episode with Kate Winslet,one of the topics being The Mountain Between Us ? (which my wife an...

but his reply was that he [Kit Aitken] would wait for the film For an English-language film, he would have had to wait until 1981. Did he live that long? In fact, a film was made in French long before the novel was published in Britain. But in those days, there was no video. (Actually, Lady Chatter...

Sentinej,
Could that have been 'Bhowani Junction' by John Masters, which was about the last days of the Raj and considered rather 'racy' at the time?

Is it not only three years since the entire kitchen block was stripped out and totally re-equipped?
Glad to see that the school is awash with money for such grandiose plans!

Re: Boys’ favourite books (& their pages) in the CH Library

Certainly NOT in the CH library at the time, as THAT court case was in progress, but someone, somehow managed to get a copy of 'Lady Chatterly's Lover' into school.

Now that WAS an eye opener at such a tender age !!

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.
