Re: Response from the Head Master

Junior Common Room is something they have at Oxford and Cambridge Colleges for the under-graduates. I do not recall anything of that name for CH in our era at least. The nearest I can think of is that each junior house put together a choir for the annual singing competition. In Maine A I recall that...

Re: Letter to Head Master - the boat

The first boat was called The Empress of Blanding(s). It was a joint ownership with Burr as a part owner. He and other masters from CH used to take boys on day trips (I think it was Sundays). The boat was moored at Slough.... ....When Burr inherited from his mother he bought his own boat and had it...

Re: Chris Nicholson and other favourite masters...

I ran into Peter Webb (PJHW) over the summer, he tells me that Bomber got that name on account of his habit of wearing a bomber jacket in his early years.

Re: Secret Photos

We didn't have wash basins - we had a long trough so I suppose we had metal bowls for water. The loos (almost equally pubic) were behind the camera person. Ha, it so happens I have the view going the other way, from the bath as it were. The loo is behind the wooden screen at the end (still no door)...

Re: Maine House Photos

Hard but fair is how I will always remember BSG. He was undeniably fond of wielding a gymshoe to a backside but it was invariably deserved, certainly in my case and I speak as one who received quite a few whacks, and he never bore a grudge. Once you were punished that was it - forgotten. One of my ...

Re: Holly Walsh

My spies informed me of the latest developments on this thread, and my solicitors will be contacting Mr Crawshaw shortly. Mrs Ajarn's only comment: "Why aren't you fat in the photo?" Bob was a very keen photographer, as I recall, and may well have a stack of interesting 'real life' CH photos from t...

Re: Col A photos 1970's

You can see all the photos by zooming out a bit, hold down "Ctrl" then press "-" once or twice. Eventually I will work out how to size the photos properly, I suspect their resolution is too high.

Re: Col A photos 1970's

I've had another look at the 1972 picture. Phelan is the guy in the glasses next to Swalwell (later a Cambridge Soccer Blue) not extreme left back row. I think 2nd left back row (next to the phantom Phelan) might well be Bill Oakley and the chap looking down with his arms folded extreme left second...

Col A photos 1970's

Just to prove that Ch did still operate during the late 60's/early 70's, there being so little material around:- Col A summer 1972 http://i784.photobucket.com/albums/yy122/bobcrawshaw/CH003.jpg I will have a go at the names but it is a bit patchy, top to bottom:- Phelan, ?, ?, ?, ?, Andy ?, Williams...
