Re: Speech Day at CH 1932

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

This may have come up on the forum before, but I've only just come across it on You Tube:
Fascinating stuff, particularly as it's around the same period that my father (John Strange, Md A 32-39) was at CH.

I'm not sure whether I've seen it before, my father would have been coming up to 18, so I think still there in Mid B. What struck me was how small some of the boys in the Band were, also that the Band itself was quite small.

I certainly hadn't seen this before. To think, many of those boys would have gone off to war in a few years.

I followed on to watch Paul Hiner's video, 'Christ's Hospital - Looking back at 1955-63'. My era. Well, 58-63 in my case.

How many memories came flooding back ? I even spotted myself in the Band photo taken in front of Big School, a copy of which I possess.

I had seen this before, and I was struck by the fact that the only thing that had visibly changed between 1932 and 1960 was the ladies' fashions.
