Harry you were my housemaster in Maine, B during the early 90s. I was a fairly troublesome kid I am sure, but I thought you were generally a pretty fair guy, and a good housemaster. Just to be clear I dont blame you for any of this. I hope you and your family are doing well.
However, I distinctly remember you called a house meeting I am guesssing like in 1993, and you explained to us that our Maths teacher Mr *****, was being marched off the because he had tried to lure a boy up into his flat. I was in the unnamed teachers set for maths (set 6 or 5 I believe) so I remember it well. He used to disappear for most of the lesson, he kind of stank, and seemed drunk or hungover a lot. Do you remember that incident? It struck me as a bit unusual because in other incidents I remember that nothing was really said about it by the teachers, and it was decribed as an "elopement" e.g Husband and I think if I remember rightly the 2nd band master. In this case it was different, you told us the truth which was nice.
So when you say above that the authorities are aware of all these teachers that had "disappeared", does that mean:
a) you believe the police were alerted at the time of the incident by the school?
b) you believe a list of all these incidents has now been provided to the police by the school?
c) you presume that the police have done so much digging that they surely must be aware of these incidents by now?
d) you personally have provided the police with a comprehensive list of all you can remember?
So do you think that math teacher, for example, was allowed to go off and teach elsewhere? Certainly I am of the opinion that the school has failed in its duty of care if the answer is anything but a)
I ask because I am thinking, should I or you, inform the police about the math teacher incident? I am guessing that teacher's is probably dead now (liver failure?). Surely, you can understand that pupils such as myself that were there during for example Dobbie's time (I was never a victim, but I could have been, he was for example lurking around our scout camp in Wales, taking kids off for overnight trips in his Gypsy wagon), feel skeptical about your statement that the police have been informed about everything in its entirety? I mean the school did a good job at turning the other way/ making these things go quiet before. There is absolutely zero chance that the upper management suspected nothing about Dobbie and Husband. Should we trust that Poulton, Sillet and Cairncross have alerted the police to everything now?
I am interested to here your opinion?
