Re: Another Fitting Sentence !!

At last the fear of speaking out is over in ALL types cases of sexual abuse, thank God !
Education authorities and the Church really need to start getting their act together.

Re: Lord David Steel

During my chequered career, I had some time driving and giving 'close protection' through an agency. I did drive David Steel once.

I found him charming, but slightly inebriated.

I can vividly remember letter writing home in Prep B, though cannot remember doing so in Coleridge B, though I'm sure we must have.

Re: Cross-country runs

In Coleridge B, I only remember Miles an PO's.

I don't remember any supervision other than starting and reporting back to house.

I've no recollection of double miles at all ever being given.

Re: Cross-country runs

I remember Mike Gladding sending us off down Peele Straight while he stayed in his Mini and caught up from time to time, telling us to go faster. The senior steeplechase continued along a driveway (which I think leads to muntham house school ) Well I've learnt something. Had no idea there was anoth...
