What about your hair?
Hertford girls of the DR era, and boys of the same really, will know that hair had to be off the collar - either cut or tied back for juniors, with the option of "putting it up" for seniors.
DR had a pre-St. Matt's hair inspection of the UVI, and we had to do our hair as we would wear it on the day. At the time I had below-shoulder length thick shiny hair, and I had put it into a bun. DR looked me and said " what does it look like down ?" So I went back to house, and brushed said hair out into a long bob ( known as an Isadora in the day).
Back to the Hall and verdict " yes, that looks nice, wear it like that to London".
Stupeur amongst the rest of the UVI ( particularly as some of them had ultra short hair tied back into paintbrushes), compounded when she had me moved to the front of our section, so that I was third in line to meet the Lord Mayor, after the Head Girl and Dep. There was a photo of me in the local rag, receiving my guinea whilst DR smirked in the background.

My bro' was in the Band, so at the Mansion House, and I was allowed during tea to break segregation and scoot over to the boys' side to say hello to him. Apparently everyone then asked him how on earth I got away with my hair half-way down my back - they all knew DR's attempts to make us all look as if we were in service...

Had to be the only time in 7 years that she actually saw me as an asset to the school...

I am off to my folks tonight and will go through Mum's photos to try and find one of me the following year, also with an Isadora (done at the vidal Sassoon Hairdressing school in Knightsbridge.)

Here's my photo of St. Matthew's Day 1977. Uncannily like the first photo in this post I think you'll agree. Notice the smiling presence of Mr. Webb, who I always thought looked strangely like Prince Charles:

I know I know, this was posted a couple of years ago so maybe the moment has passed, but for the record the photo is of Peele A. Clearly visible are Roger Creagh-Osborne (far left, with shoulder plate), Mike Trubridge, Laurence Wyatt, John Calton, Paul Koronka, Chris Cordingly, Sefton Bloxham...yes you're right I should spend work days more productively

Perry Kitchen!

Yours was a name famed at Hertford. The year below me - Alex Thrift, Catherine Ennis, and even Siobhan Kierans (the year below them) had gained exceptional kudos in an association with cool Housey boys.

How I envied them! I was the year above, and solitary as the only UV1 in 6's. "Perry Kitchen" - what with the jargon and in-jokes connected with these underground connections with mysterious Horsham - oh!

Hey Perry

To be pedantic it's actually Peele... both A and B; you should spot George Matcham, Keith Holmes, Andrew Sainsbury, Colin Roy and me just behind Peele A, and there is a Thornton presence as well just behind us! so... :twisted:

John.
I quite agree John :!:
Amen to that! There was a small resistance movement about two years ago (by small, I mean 4 of us) Sadly I am the only remaining one - back buckles have now ceased to be an expression of individuality so much as "the way it is". Sad times.

That photo of 1977, and talking of hair - I've realised the lad next to Pete Webb is me. Thus did recent Old Blues then make their contribution to the fashion disaster that was the 1970s. Dear oh dear...

Also in the Peele B group:

Keith Shepard, Ian Hawker, Michael Joy, Roger Allam, Steven Kendall and Richard Wickison - plus other familiar faces but names elude me.

Is that Simon White behind Paul Koronka?

I think this is September 1968.

The location is Newgate St. in front of Greyfriars/CH London site commemorated with plaques on building which is reflected in the windows of the Midland Bank.

Matcham with the shoulder badge between Koronka and White - and Colin Roy on the outside of Michael Joy.
