Re: Current reading matter

I'm reading 'Moon over Soho' by Ben Aaronovitch. Not exactly highbrow, but enjoyable modern fantasy. SAS - You'd never read Jane Austin? :shock: She's still one of my favourite authors, P+P is a desert Island book for me Desert Island books-that would be a good thread! My DI book would be 'Survive ...

There were several Hil(l)arys at Hertford in 60's/early 70's. Was that name made popular by the climber?

Re: Fascinating documentary footage of 1930s CH

In Hertford durng my time (1956 - 62) we used to be weighed and measured at the beginning of each term. We were also inspected for posture and feet problems, and if necessary assigned to remedial sessions known as 'back drill' and 'flat feet'! I do not remember anyone who was overweight in spite of...

Re: Quick questions and (maybe) answers Hertford Memories th

A sudden explanation for something I'd always remembered and about which I'd wondered! My computer always gives me a Yahoo page for starters. There was a thing about new babies being named after this year's Olympic athletes. "We must call him Usain!" There were so many Susans about my age...

Re: All Out!

Once I was in tears after being left out of the house rounders team, I really really wanted to be good at sport! Tennis was easily my favourite, would have loved to have been considered for the school team, but Nelly nearly always had the same people in each team. There was a notice board in the clo...

Re: Gravel Crunching

Was gravel crunching only done on Sundays, either late morning after chapel or afternoons ? In the winter we had a Sunday walk and in summer we could go the field if it was fine, wearing ashbourne hats, usually taking books and revising for exams. I have photos somewhere! It is really strange, but I...

Re: What Were You Useless At?

History! We had an erudite historian, Dr. Frances Page, who utterly confused me - all those Henrys! I couldn't get my head round dates, relationships, battles etc. and my exam results reflected my confusion. However later in life I developed an interest in social history and suddenly everything sta...
