Well! :shock:

Ooh, yes please Philip. Schoolboys... horseplay.... rugby! Maybe snaps from the showers? :wink:

(Hastily snapping back into virtuous mode) So interesting to learn more about life at Horsham.

I've just found out that she was presenting CBBC over the half term break...

She is also a stand up comedian apparently... http://www.pbjmgt.co.uk/clients/holly-w ... raphy.html

And to think she said no to me when I asked her out on Scout Camp at the end of my squits!

Well perhaps I can oblige. This I hope will be the first of a collection I have, I just need to dig the rest of the negatives out of storage. This first one is of Ken Brown attacking Phil Underwood in a Col A dormitory c.1973. Note the regulation pajamas and housey coat (with yellow lining) hanging up. These were the days of the houses having 2 dorms each containing 25 or so boys. Long gone days especially now considering Col A is a girls house.

OK, didn't get the previous picture insertion right try this:-

Of note too is the original horsehair mattresses we slept on (most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on) and the open settle, cast iron with a wooden lid which we kept our clothes in overnight (plus illicit alcohol etc. but that is another story)

We had horsehair mattresses (and pillows) at Hertford too but I have no memory of where we hung our everyday uniform, was it at the head of the bed? At the side of the bed we had a small locker like an old-fashioned hospital one with a shelf at the back for soapdish, toothmug etc, and a towel rail below.

I was trying to remember this myself and came up with 3 poss options: yes, at the head of the bed on a hanger , in our baskets under the bed (but would have ended up very creased!) , or was there hanging space inside the locker??

There was a hook at the head of the bed, but surely we didn't have the luxury of a hanger? I think undies or nightwear went in the basket.

Nightwear, dressing gown and slippers definitely went in the basket, but no idea where tunics/blouses/summer dresses went, not in the basket I don't think.

I think they must have gone on a hanger or hook at the head of the bed. I can't think of anywhere else they could have gone.
