I want to know what was happening out of shot on the right of the photo (the boys' left) - quite a few heads turned that way!
I know exactly what words I am wanting to say, but somehow or other they is always getting squiffsquiddled around

I was one of those that was distracted! Cannot remember why, possibly a micro mini, knowing me, certainly a distraction of that ilk!

Looking at the photograph...
Is there signs of 'the broadie buckle at the back' disease in 1969?

I've been looking at the photo and trying to remember the fashion of the time, it was girdle 6 or more inches below the bottom button and the broadie at the side. It looks like they're at the back, but I'm sure we didn't even consider that as an option then.

I seem to remember my buckle usually being somewhere between 60-100 degrees east, depending on mood (not in my first year, of course.) Is there a standard way to wear the girdle (i.e. set out in school rules)? And if there is, does anyone seriously expect all of the teenage students to abide by it? And how do you enforce it? And would we really want them not to find some way to express their individuality?

Sorry, John & John, I can't agree! :rock:

OK Phil,
This is an old thread going back a while.... that is why I said sorry to bring it up again!
Here is a link to my thoughts in one of the threads on this subject.

I have an almost identical shot to Gingerbeard's of Peele B marching in almost exactly the same spot, but from 1977. Will post if I can dig it out.

How many of you went to London each year? Was it yet another example of favouritism that so many boys went because you looked good in your uniforms while we girls stayed at home and only went when we were in the VI form - possibly only UVI?

Only Upper sixth went until anbout 1970. I went as Lower sixth in '71 and think LVI went the year before but I am not sure about before that, Euterpe would know if she went twice.

In 1977 you went for the first time in UF, but I can't remember how those in higher years were chosen. I certainly remember that the "largesse" coin often proved too tempting to hold onto, and was often spent or sold shortly afterwards.

When I was at CH, it was the band, choir and all GE and up unless it was a big service in St Pauls when everyone came!

Only went once, in UVI - and caused quite a furor amongst the boys, I might say, because of my hair...
