Not so much a "field" trip as exposure to the East End of the Kray Bros - a visit to Fords in Dagenham in the late 50's. Another trip was to Wimbledon - what a bore, given I could never stand the game even though it seemed top be available for only a week a year. Less organised but far more enjoyabl...

Great plum was shocked at how few OBs there were. Surprised? Why oh why didn't they give us some decdent notice. From correspondence it seems that I was lucky that I even heard about it (and that only because of the coming into being of the new body because previously OBs day was for club members) J...

To follow James' offer, I'm letting a 150 - 200 year old farmhouse (renovated!) with room for 6 in the south west of France close to Carcassonne, the Pyrenees, Cathar castles, the beautiful 11th cent. town of Mirepoix etc. all set in nearly 50 acres of woodland and pasture. What a lovely part of th...

All you could ever want?

There are about 550 images (including the 1924 St Matthews Day parade) available. I can't be rat ar**d to post them here myself - you can find them by going to http://www.google.co.uk, selecting inages and typing in Christs Hospital. Having looked at that lot go to the different query of christ's ho...

Re: Tunnels and Chemicals

Ta, muchly, Simon. I spent plenty of memorable time in Nigeria trying to sort out their default and in Brazil trying to sort out Nigeria's default and in London trying to sort out Brazil's default. Now if I had known it was you I'd have asked to be excused Lagos duty; that was even worse than CH. M...

Re: Tunnels and Chemicals

Financial wizard, not genius. I wave my magic wand and another country defaults and we all write of 2 grillion dollars and then go and do it all again. Plus ca change, just like the rain on Sunday afternoons at CH. Talking of which, it's raining here in NY, unfortunately didn't do that last Thursda...

Certainly no swimming costume until you could swim the 5 lengths; I can't remember about the dive. More interesting was the annual summer visit to the beach near Bognor Regis; I'll allow the "ladies" maginations to run riot! As for the gym; can't remember any splinters but 2 memories stick out: bask...

and lack of ability to either understand or speak English Is CH using immigrant labour these days? In the G.O.D. all we had to cope with was a broad Sussex accent, eminently speakable and understandable.
