 WINDSOR BOYS' SCHOOL

 WINDSOR SCHOOL >>>>
When the girls moved to their own school early in 1960 Windsor School became Windsor Boys' School.
The buildings had been used for a variety of purposes including, as Argonner Kaserne,
base for a German artillery regiment and later, as Brixton Camp, temporary home to prisoners of war.
In 1948 the 61st Tank Transporter Unit was based there, a Polish unit responsible for moving the tanks of
the 5th Royal Tank Regiment at Newcastle Barracks, later Windsor Girls School.

Having a bath ... detention party at work Over the wall ...
Bathing facilities were rudimentary...  ...and the regime harsh...
(detention party on pitch maintenance)
...which led to escape attempts.

Dorm punishment
Parents who dropped in
unexpectedly...
...might find their sons undergoing bizzare initiation rituals.... ...which included a ducking
in the school pool.
  
  Either a Lightning has just landed on the tennis courts
or the CCF are on a visit to RAF Gutersloh in 1967.
 
Pursuits such as the Duke of Edinburgh's Award
were encouraged...
  ...as an aid to finding one's way back to school after
an evening at the 'Magic Bus'
