Monday 20th September 1965

Anything that doesn't fit anywhere else, but that's still CH related.

Mark Cousins of Maine A was the Senior Grecian, Graham Pratt House Captain and other monitors were Gray, Lloyd, Fordham, Pratt R, Tompkins, Jackson and Isaac although it was Lloyd and Fordham with whom we squits had the most dealings.

In the unlikely event of any of Adams, Brooks, Butler, Calton J (RIP), Calton R, Chapman, Clack, Cromey-Hawke, Haynes, Kerridge, Martin, Miller A, Nicholson, the 1965 Maine A intake including me, reading this I wish you all the best and hope that life has gone well.

Best wishes too to AKAP ,ex Barnes B, a squit at the same time. He may be slightly more likely to visit the forum and see this.

Did Chris Read stay long at CH ? I remember his arrival when he became responsible for the school printing, along with myself and Paul Coates (?sp) which would have been about1962/63.

Chris seemed more like 'one of the boys' rather than a teacher in authority.

Yes "Chapman" is indeed Kent Chapman.
