Re: Bishop Peter Ball and Christ's Hospital

Hi Chaps Eer been out of the loop a bit - Peter Ball originally was a monk of his and his brothers own order, down in Sussex. He became Bishop of Lewis. He was not 'a favourite of the later Bishop of Chichester' although he had been with the previous. He ran a strange institution (with his brother (...

Re: Ernest McCall- Maths teacher / housemaster Maine A

Hi Chaps He was Richard Edward McCall. Ernie was his adopted name, by him. He was Second Housemaster in Mid A during my time (1972 - 1976). A bit odd and he drank a lot, AN AWFUL LOT. There were some issues with him but he was, to be frank, rather useless both as a teacher in my time and within the ...

Re: HUSBAND APPEAL ??

I said it is the best legal system and I will stick by that and whilst Scotland and Northern Ireland has separate legal systems they are close to or replicate that of England, Wales, The Channel Islands and the Isle of Man as well as Gibralter and other 'Protectorates'. It is by no means a perfect s...

Golpher

The one (and more) family members of Husband may well attend - be assured that the victim(s) will be represented and those that do this will be much more than a match for his family.

Hope that this helps.

Re: HUSBAND APPEAL ??

JR has provided a very comprehensive response to how the Appeal System works. Whilst it may seem a waste of public money to allow Husband's appeal we must all remember that GB has by far the best judicial system in the world and all accused, found guilty and sentenced, do have a right of appeal - ev...

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

Hi All Thank you for your support. It was a difficult day for me - the address was 35 minutes long and I have no idea how I got through it - I only broke down three times and just for a moment or two. If you would like to see it then please contact me through my email address spicetraders2009@live.c...

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

No Golfer I would never want the closure of CH. What I want is an apology - and that is it. I did what I did on that occasion as I believed then it was right and I stand by it. Every person deserves more than one chance - if I was wrong then I must take ownership of the wrong doing. It is time for C...

Re: Corporal Punishment by CH Teaching staff

Golfer Corporal punishment was simply the Chastisement of the time, this according to what Guy Perricone wrote to me. It was nothing of the sort. For many it was direct physical abuse for gratification, being sexual or sadistic, and became very influential in the recipients 'worldview' for that indi...

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

Sorry for not responding to all of this sooner (almost wish that I hadn't asked the question). My Address to the Council is on the 2nd November so have been concentrating on that, but... whether people like it or not, the abuse continued under Baker and Hansford. I am concerned about the punishment ...

Re: Corporal Punishment by CH Teaching staff

Corporal punishment was a part of the '50s, 60s, and 70s. It was a norm and as Guy Perricone has explained to me was at that time an acceptable form of chastisement. However, I was at CH under Seaman and Newsome and the corporal punishment delivered had very little to do with 'chastisement'. Whilst ...

Re: Corporal Punishment by CH Teaching staff

You know I love you lot, as you represent the 'body and soul' of CH. Guy Perricone (not an old Blue) lasted one year as Treasurer & Chair. He did not understand CH and he can not be blamed for what he wrote to me - he followed the line. In just three weeks I am addressing the council - 2nd November-...

Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

Do any of you know why Baker as HM resigned out of the blue (no pun intended) and exactly what Hansford changed in his four terms of employment?

Thanks

Re: Corporal Punishment by CH Teaching staff

Corporal punishment was rife in my day. And it was administered in a way that was not required for basic 'chastisement' as I was told by the former Chair of the Council Guy Perricone. It was brutal and savage and often for pure sexual gratification. Newsome was renowned for it. Bob Sillett, that's t...

Are you saying that Sillett's family were as corrupt as yo say?
