Re: The tragedy of William Gibbs

Thanks Ever Bluer, any chance you could post the chapter on here (ok for copyright as just one chapter) but possibly a bit of a faff!

Re: prison releases

Do people think any of the CH prisoners will be released early? Their release isn't 'imminent' however as elderly prisoners, they are at risk from coronovirus. The first prisoner to sadly die the UK was an elderly sex offender, very similar demographic.

Re: prison releases

thanks for the info Bish, hope you are well. Glad his appeal against his lenient sentence was turned down. Did he appeal against just his sentence or his conviction as well. Would be interesting to see a copy if available.

Re: prison releases

Burr is the only offender who had a local press who covered his conviction by speaking to those who knew him, and publicising the conviction in his home town. Karim bizarrely had a number of defenders in what I can only describe as the 'elite squash club' fraternity. Webb and Dobbie both lived in Fr...

Re: Here's a hypothetical

McCall's name keeps coming up. He appears to have either died or gone abroad. One can't help thinking he will be happy to be as elusive as Lord Lucan. McCall is living in South Africa. I have this on the authority of the Police, when I reported him for sexual assault a couple of years ago If enough...

Re: Bishop Ball documentary BBC2 2100 TONIGHT

I remember reading with interest the report of his caution in one of the broadsheets in 1993. It was sympathetically reported with mischievous novices being blamed for him being treated very unfairly. He confirmed me and I was prepared by Dobbie and Porteous. I recall one house communion Ball took ...

Re: Tom Lawson: the interview

This should probably go in a Thread called, "Promises CH made but never completed." The Hertford Avenue seems to have gone the way of the replacement for the CH Club Room. David Miller and I are probably the only CHC committee members on this forum who remember the promise. CHC had a club room at t...

Former teacher, Tom Snook

HI. Just seeing if anyone remembers this teacher, or knows who he's up to know. Used to teach 'CDT' (Craft, Design and Technology) in the 1990s, and left, but returned to sailing holidays with the Scouts with Shippen and possibly Burr.

Re: CH Letter re support for abuse survivors

I think that the letter is encouraging. Here are the things that worry me: I believe that Simon Reid was a teacher at the school in the 1990s - and as others have noted - there was knowledge of things going on among the staff in the school in the 1990s. We also know that there must have been knowle...
