Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

Another solid 65 minutes or so for Joe yesterday. He also, to steal association football terminology, had a siginificant 'assist' in Mako Vunipola's try forcing him over the line. Unlike the other week against Georgia, when Joe did similar for Jack Willis, at least Bryan Habana noticed yesterday. L...

Certainly was. Tough opposition forwards; tough conditions. Acquitted himself well. Suspect the Aussie won't pick him for next Saturday's bigger match v Ireland

Re: Independent obituary of Mark Cousins (Maine A 1957-66)

Howard, No. I think you are thinking of my younger brother, Peter Martin. He was at Macaulay for a year or two before CH. [My father taught there, at Macaulay, formerly known as Clapham Parochial, for many years. Did he not often give you a lift to school about a hundred years ago ?] You are, of co...

Re: Roger Allam in Radio Times

One of the things I like about this forum is the way topics are allowed to veer off track, however I can't help feeling we've had this conversation about charity status numerous times on other threads over the last decade and more. Does anyone know how much Roger Allam's parents paid towards his fe...

Well, when he was there - it was.

Re: Roger Allam in Radio Times

One of my favourite actors; I confess I'm extremely envious. He was several years ahead of me at CH, but I have a clear memory, which has stayed with me, of him singing "In the Bleak Midwinter" as a tenor in the choir when I was a treble. It made quite an impression, so I'm hoping I won't...

Re: What is CH for these days?

I would expect that the trip to Australia was a sports trip (rugby?) - the school have done a number of international sports trips over the years and my memory is that the children going fundraised for nearly all of it... Thank you, son. You are correct. Monumental amounts of fund-raising for the f...

Re: I.A.R. Christie, Lamb A 1956-63

Pop quiz: which family had the most brothers at CH? In my day, the Savages. 3 (or 4?). Also in your day 3 Farnfields. I was in Maine A in my first year with 3 Pratts (name not nature), Graham, Robin and Martin, and they had an older brother apparently before my time. There were also (3 I think ) Pr...

Both of the boys, David and Jonathan, went on to be prep school Headmasters, one in Dorset and one in Nottinghamshire, I think.

Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

Got to feel sorry for Joe in that he is not really getting much of a look in this World Cup. I don't think any other country has the depth at second row that England does. Meanwhile let's hope England finish the job against Australia in the second half. I do feel he is the unluckiest player in Brit...
