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

I'd never realized (or else long forgotten) that Bullard was an OB. I suppose he was junior housemaster of MaB for about 9 or 10 years, but that was actually quite a long time in one house. Most junior housemasters either moved on, or moved around when marital circumstances demanded. He was of course far older than the average junior housemaster (and a lot older than his senior, Morton Peto*), and the thought of him refereeing a rugby match is mind-boggling.

He was nicknamed The Wop, but I've no idea why.

There were a few, but not many, masters who never took their Oxford or Cambridge M.A., presumably because they regarded it (rightly**) as a piece of vain frippery. Another was Fish Edwards. Though I couldn't stand the man, vanity was not one of his faults.

*who has at the time of writing outlived him by 53 years (!).

**sez he, who has one.
