Excuse me while I bandage my split sides.

I don't know if that reaction is better or worse than I get from my sons.

"Son: Was that a joke?
Me: Yes.
Son: That's strange because jokes are normally funny."

Re Accents --- I was brought up, as I have said elsewhere, In Stockwell, London, and on arriving at CH had a definite SARF LONNON accent.
Visiting Ba B many years later, after it became a girls House, I was introduced to a Gorgeous Blonde (Sexist, I know --- but she was !) who came from Stockwell . I said you are from Stockwell ? and she replied "OOOWH YARSE " in BBC accent.
I said - " OI CAN GAR BACK TER STOCKWELL ANY TOIM I LOIK, An NAHBODY WILL KNAH THE DIFFRENSE !
She replied " WEWL SAH CAN OI !" We agreed that CH puts a Veneer on you ! ! :lol: :lol:

Wow! Indeed it is Sam Sergent. None of you have spelled him correctly


.... and what an amazing array of notables all facing the camera on the Mid A table

Can you recognise - in the same row - General Sir Garry Johnson (Treasurer of CH), Sir John Wickerson (President emeritus (?) of the Law Society). Rear Admiral David Bawtree, Lord David Simon, and a certain Old Man of the Sea (untitled)?

David

This was two years before my time -- but where is Lord Simon? Not the guy near the top with the glasses, surely? He couldn't have been that senior already. He was SG, if I remember rightly, in 1957/58.

I've been trying to identify people on the ThornB table. I recognize John Davis and David Baigent fairly clearly, but is that Anthony Arblaster about halfway down?
