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 ! !

Wow! Indeed it is Sam Sergent. None of you have spelled him correctlymichael scuffil wrote:Was this the Sam Sargeant who was a long-time hall warden and is visible here http://www.chforum.info/pictures/brianl ... l-1952.jpg ?
.... 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)?

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?
