Re: Letter to Head Master

Vilified You are completely missing the point. At the end of the day you need to step back you were lucky as, as you have said, got out of the environment Rob Yes, I was missing the point; because I didn't know, until you've told me now, anything about the context of all this stuff. I'd have hoped ...

Re: Letter to Head Master

Can your remember who X was? Your recollection of events is otherwise excellent. No idea, and to me it wouldn't have mattered at the time or remained in my mind. There were a cluster of people that were more friendly than others, but at this distance they all coalesce. It didn't make any impression...

Re: Letter to Head Master

Not all of these masters overlapped at CH so do we know what the common link was? Scouts? Who was maintaining the friendships with the suddenly departed? Into the early 90s (if other posts on here are accurate) Assume it was Dodger who invited along Villified for his one and only trip whilst he was...

Re: Letter to Head Master - the boat

Burr was 'moved on' but he still entertained boys from both CH and The Reading Oratory on the new boat. He also entertained various masters. Of the masters you may recognise some names: Shippen, Webb, Rev Atkinson, Durrent, Martin & Hayden. Some of these masters went on holidays on the boat as did ...

Re: Roger Martin trial & verdict

Vilified whilst I haven’t agreed with all that you’ve said I do admire how quick you are to accept you were wrong on an issue and to apologise. It must be distressing to hear that Martin tried to push the blame in the direction of yourself and others. Thank you for that kind comment. Yes, it's a na...

Re: Roger Martin trial & verdict

And now to Mr Durrant. He is quite right to criticise persons on this forum for making assertions or abusive comments. If you know something and have evidence then go to the police. BUT he is not right to suggest, because of his own trial, that non recent (what he calls Historical) abuse events are...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

Vilified said that the boy played in the game following a blow to the head. However, the victim would have been crying. The victim would have been dizzy and in pain, and probably would not have been able to play rugby. There would have been about 30 witnesses to this event (two teams, etc.). But, s...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

Child abuse is child abuse, what difference does it make? Why did you need to know what the incident was and the unsavoury details? Noone else had asked? Don't you ever give up on your niggling and nastiness?! I KNEW THE MAN! I had spent two years at CH in the same house, and I recalled his thought...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

Sadly, much against my hopes, it appears that I must log in and post once more, because yet again Vilified has been vilified. It is hard to see why richardb seems to think it is myopic for the question to be raised of J.R.’s credentials for acting as a hanging judge in the matter of which I have adm...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

As I leave the scene, which I gladly do now, a final reminder as to why I involved myself in this highly unpleasant 'exchange of views' in the first place: 1. To quash vicious scurrilous speculation as to my reasons for leaving CH, which were contemptible and deeply offensive; 2. To put on record m...

Agreed. Your use of the term ‘special needs’ as an insult is pretty bl**dy offensive.
Yes, that was unacceptable.

Re: Roger Martin - trial

Did he go on to play in the rugby match that day? (Although his ear was probably painful and his head was spinning). Do you remember his name, by any chance? Yes, he did. I agree, it is horrible to think of; and I have always been saddened to think of it, and therefore the more admired and apprecia...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

Thanks for mentioning the Guidelines. As you will have seen, your assault on the pupil merits custody, so can we stop trivialising it. You may not have intended the level of injury you caused, but you sure as hell intended to assault the lad. I am not trivialising it. I can see that a half-decent c...
