Re: Dr Jory

I picked this up from Old Blues, and after lot of faffing on my phone have managed to copy it to CH Ladies. I have no comments myself but as you say others may have. Thanks for posting Mary. Good to hear from you, despite the possible negative circumstances, I hope all is well with you and yours.

Re: Dr Jory

I'm not on FaceBook so I can't help there. I know Mary (English Angel) is, is anyone still in touch with her? I have emailed Charles. I also did a search here for the name Jory and I was right the doctor was called that. There are some of Angela's vivid descriptions of her encounters with him! Ther...

Re: Dr Jory

Hi all, I wonder if any former CH'ers are able to recall Dr Jory at all? If you are able to recall him at CH can you please email me on Charles.derham@verisonalaw.com Many thanks Charles Dr Jory was still at Hertford in 1983-84, two years before the merger. Is there any way of publicising this amon...

Re: Relationships - Grecian / UF

Also true in employment. Because you didn't get an A, B, C, D, ....grade in GCE O level I knew of companies who would not even interview you. They were too thick to understand that grades came in with GCSE - no GCSEs - no interview. Umm - not strictly true. From 1975 GCE O Levels were graded A to E...

A Happy and Peaceful Christmas and 2020

to all forum members and guests.

We sadly lost some respected members over the last year so taking the opportunity to think of them too.

Robert Griffiths 'Postwarblue'

I am sad to note from the latest CHOBA newsletter that yet another well respected poster to this forum has passed away. RIP Robert and my sincere condolences to your family and friends should they read this. EDIT: A tribute from the obituaries section of the CHOBA website written by Robert's widow A...

Oddly, although he appears to be after my time, the name is ringing a bell from way way back.

Could he have started at CH as a young master in the mid-60's ?? Seems unlikely though.
I would think he was there at the tail end of your time John.

Re: Neil Simms

I am very sorry to read this too. Like Robert Neil Simms taught me Economics and Politics and thanks to him I managed to gain an 'A' level in the subject. He was a very enthusiastic teacher with a passion for his subject and that enthusiasm and passion was infectious so you put the work in without r...

Re: Politics

I'm not getting involved too far ! As an 'Old Codger' from way back, I have always voted against, ( Brexit ). I have both personal and political reasons. Sorry JR - does this mean you voted against Brexit, ie remain? Your reply to Mid A 15's post indicates the opposite. Thanks I was confused at fir...

Re: Politics

Okay, so let's turn the subject back to Brexit which seems to be getting ever weirder by the day! Now that Boris appears to have sold Mrs May's deal to Parliament, albeit with a bit of a tweak on the backstop, The Farrago seems now to be calling on his wide-eyed loons to reject it. Has he seen the ...

Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

A disappointing end to it all for England.

As it transpired that match would have suited Joe Launchbury although I am not implying that his selection would have changed the result.

OOOH. It's hold your breath time.

And not a recent word from Freaky !
I think he is still pumping out regular letters to 'The Guardian' and others.

Now the election has been announced he has more pressing matters than conversing with the likes of us I fancy.

Re: Politics

For those of us on the other side of the Atlantic, what is going on? Does BJ think an election would give him a clear majority? What is the rationale (if any) behind the support of other parties? I understand I may get very different answers from various members. I think BJ is thinking about BJ and...

Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

I learnt yesterday that no less than three of the England side, Farrell, Wood & Itoje, I think, went to the school I was at before CH, St George’s Harpenden, my father was school chaplain. I wonder whether this is the most in an England team from the same school, no brothers. Does anyone know? Many...
