Re: Dennis Silk

Very sad indeed. I overlapped at university with his son, Tom. Dennis was on my interview committee for the Morehead Scholarship in 1983. I still have his personal congratulory letter. He was Warden at Radlet for 23 years and one of the best and most repsected Heads of his era. https://www.radley.or...

I live in France and so rarely do people understand the concept of boarding as over here un internat is Monday to Friday and for kids that seem to struggle in public system and need monitoring. There is also complete incomprehension as to why parents don't wnat to be around their kids for 8 months a...

RIP P T FARRAR

I saw in the Old Blue that Peter Farrar (Head of Modern Langauges) has died. He was my AO and A level teacher for three years and though he was a wonderful linguist, his sense of timing was not great and lessons were inevitably shorter. He would often be having a coffee in the Language lab and then ...

Re: A letter from the CHOBA board

There are indeed a lot of coincidences and I found the photo in the press article that I posted to be very very like the Revd Porteous I knew at CH.
The Thailand connection is also unsettling but if truth were to be said if nothing has come out from CH days, then it may indeed be a different person.

As J.R rightly says, the plot thickens... He had a son called Charles and a diaghter, Sidonia... When did h...

Or even Rev Porteous who was convicted later in a prep school.

Was Jason Flemyng, the actor, expelled? I seem to recall also that he was involved in a shop lifting episode when he was in Mid A?

Re: newspaper article re Peter Webb's departure from CH

This press article happened during my tenure as Senior Grecian in 1984. I think more Lent Term 1984. The headline was indeed "Goodbye Mr Chips" and I am pretty sure it was the SUN newspaper. I recall Baker desperately pressing me to find out who had leaked the story but not really my cup of tea that...

Re: It's time for Sillett, Cairncross and Poulton to comment.

I noticed that the fate of three Yemeni gentlemen was also posted on the same day in the Mail a few pices below Karim's report. Different approach and homicide also involved, but in some countries rape carries much harsher penalties http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6042533/Three-paedophiles-s...

Re: Bishop Peter Ball and Christ's Hospital

Ball did my confirmation in 1981 if I recall correctly. At that time the 3 Chaplains were Robson, Atkinson and Godfrey Hall. Robson went off to Wellington to join Newsome and Atkinson and Hall were then joined by Porteous.
