Re: Applying to Christ's Hospital Sixth Form

I have sent in my application and I am attending the open day tomorrow. Just wondering, does anyone know the admissions process. And, with grade predictions of 9 A*s, 1 A and 1 B, do I even stand a chance of getting in? Hello Carmelo, welcome to the Forum. Most of us on here are ancient Old Blues (...

Re: Brexit

Brexit is not the cause of the lorry driver shortage but provides a convenient excuse for a remaincentric incompetent Establishment and a media that loves to fan the flames of discontent in any way possible. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/6260516.stm. The linked article is from 2007 long before...

Re: Roger Allam in Radio Times

Thanks for the links. I wonder which teacher he was referring to? The convicted abusers teaching during Roger Allam's time were: Peter Burr, Peter Webb and Roger Martin. Roger Martin was the most generally popular of those three so, if I was a gambling man, I would surmise Martin is the teacher ref...

Re: In 1966 I was:

In the Maine A Quiet Room watching the match on TV with a few others. Not sure why I was at CH on 30 July but I was!

Momentous day for a football obsessed little boy of 12 at the time and I hope tonight will prove similar for and old git of nearly 67.

Re: Obituary: Squadron-Leader Robin Miller, RAF; Mid B 1950-56

I regret to record the death of my younger brother, Robin (R.W.A. Miller), who was in Middleton B from 1950-1956, whence he progressed to a very successful apprenticeship at De Havillands, Hatfield. Frustrated by colour blindness from achieving his aim of becoming a fighter pilot, he discovered tha...

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...

On a related subject, did anyone see the Women's England vs France game at Twickers? Good skills, pulsating match, thrilling finish - and a mass catfight in the second minute. Unfortunately not. After 40 years my dearly beloved is well used to my interest in sport but Gillingham v Charlton Athletic...

Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

Congratulations to Joe on his 50th cap for England today! 68 good minutes before Eddie removed him too. EDIT: I'm confused because on TV today they congratulated Joe on his 50th cap yet I've read elsewhere that he has 65! Can anyone clarify? Could it be 50 caps against 6 Nations teams they are refer...
