Having fun post farming...

Post by Tim_MaA_MidB » Wed May 24, 2006 5:11 pm

Hello all,

I guess I joined the forum because emigrating to Brazil has made me sort of sentimental about all the things I'll be leaving behind.

I have only been back to CH twice since I left, and then only because I was passing.

I was half looking (mooching) for people I used know; I have moved around many times during the course of the past 20 years or so and subsequently lost touch with many many people.

It's been so long since I saw some of the people I would like to say hi to, I can't even remember most of their surnames!

Anyway, if anyone was around CH in the early-late seventies and can recall the shortest person in the school, that was me...Tim Vincent.

Say hi here... :D

OK, were we in Mid B. at the same time? I left in 1978.

I'm afraid my memory has a few gaps these days..... :oops:

Yeah... but you were 2 years older than me, so I was probably insignificant.

If it's any consolation, I can't remember you either!

I blame excess "howsyerfather" at university. :oops:

Some names I do remember are Dave Lagnado, Chris McLeod, Nick Clemence, Mark Thomas (but only because he was on the telly a few times), Steve Foster....

Like the answers to a cryptic crossword, more might come if I stop trying to remember.

I remember some of the names you mention. Blimey, I must have done stuff like supervise prep and tell you to go to bed on time.

Sound like we need to find a couple of house photos - that might help.

My mum's got a few. The trouble is, she lives on the West coast of Scotland, and things would get confusing if I asked her to take a photo to her neighbours and ask them to scan it. I'll see what I can do next time I visit, though.

Matron.
She must have been the Middleton matron for years (I left in 72).

The two 'outside' Housemaster's with the dodgy haircuts look somewhat suspicious !"

Everyone had dodgy haircuts in those days.

Housemaster - Nick Jones
House tutors - Mike Williams and 'Slug' Plumley

Button Grecians - John 'Jock' Sedgwick and Rob Kelly

During my last term Mid. B had 8 Button Grecians - there's a photo on my mum's wall. Another one to get scanned, I think.

I recognise quite a few faces, but I'd have to think for a while to put some names to them.........

Why was the photo not taken outside the house, then?

Maybe the sun wasn't coming from the right direction.....I also have a vague memory of some scoffolding works(?)

I am the short-arse second in from the right in the first standing row.
