Euterpe 13, I'm very sorry to read of the death of your brother, Peter. I didn't know him that well as we were in different houses but we were in the sicker together at one time. He had suffered a fractured jaw if I remember rightly. I believe Peter was in Thornton B. If you look in the back of The ...

I would agree Julian that it is unfair to criticise John Hopgood as any edition of The Blue is only as good as the contributions sent in, as you imply. However I, like Hannoir, also voted for the status quo regarding The Blue on the questionnaire yet it appears the decision to change the format is a...

No go with the nephew I'm afraid. He is snowed under and with holidays etc is unlikely to be clear for sometime.

Sorry in retrospect I should have asked him before posting. :cry:

My nephew works for a company that designs websites. I can have a word if you like and see if he can help or if he "knows a man that can".

As St Bob Geldof would say................ give us your effing money! By the way you are not allowed to come to Beating of the Retreat, we'll shut the CH Club and stop the format of The Blue that has been going for 100 plus years. Ignore me I'm in Victor Meldrew grumpy old man mode :evil: Mind you I...

TA, Gerald Davies was a great bloke and taught me English also. Without elaborating too much one of my CH "lows" concerned rugby and TGRD took the time to assure me that I could play the game. That was a real boost coming from someone of his status. JR, Our sex lecture was carried out by PF Matthews...

I'd go along with JR and agree that cheese and potato pie and marmite fritters were two of the more acceptable items we were served in the sixties. I confess to concocting my own cheese and potato pie thing for my daughters which was surprisingly well received. They still request it from time to time.

Julian,

just a suggestion. This sad thead should be moved to General Chat CH.

Some users may not bother with non CH matters on a CH site.

[I've moved the topic over. Thanks! Mod]

As another from the same era you pose what to me is an interesting question. I certainly experienced some real lows during my time at CH but equally I loved the sport and living in such beautiful countryside. I also made some really good mates who I am still in contact with. One other negative, whic...

Sad to read this news.

I never met him, but was very impressed with his courtesy and professionalism when we corresponded over a contribution I submitted to The Blue a few years ago.

Rugby England v Argentina

This match was understandably overshadowed by the Lions debacle.

However Andrew Higgins came on as a 64th minute replacement.

Anyone know if this match counts as England A or has he got a full cap now?

Confused................(CH Club subs)

At this time of year I normally pay up the BSB and CH Club subs. I've sent the BSB off but as it appears the CH Club is no more and I know sweet fanny adams about the Association I've not sent the other cheque. Wendy Killner told me things were in limbo and to send a cheque to the Partnership Office...
