The web-site goes from strength to strength. I recently made 'proxy' contact
with Mike Hill from 3AB (1960) days via my brother who lives in Perth
and turns out to be only a few miles from Mike. Although my brother, Paul,
never had the pleasure of a sojourn at Windsor he is now as well-infomed
as anyone about those great days.
Actually, I just popped into the site to check the date of next-year's
Re-Union since I wanted to get it into my diary before anything else was
planned. Then I had a quick look at the visitors book and got hooked for
an hour reading all the messages.
Great to hear
from everyone. I am looking forward to June 2000 and renewing all the
contacts and memories.
See you there

Hello everyone. What a fantastic site this is. I was in Hillsborough with
my two brothers from 1971-1975, we are William, Alan and John Henry. It
would be great to hear from anyone who remembers us.
The names I remember are Angus Macpherson, mark Coburn, Martin Sedgwick,
Ricardo Stillwell, Scott McIntyre, Nick (Coco) Lowe who was a brilliant
athlete, footballer and rugby player and in all the school teams also
Steve Smith who was into diving at the time.
My sister was also at WGS, her name is Jeanette (I'm not sure of the house).
Hope to see some familiar faces at the Millennium Reunion.

Bruce Kolesar (C67-71)
Myself and two brothers all attended WBS, Hamm (Edinburgh House) from
1968 to 1972. Peter and myself were well known for the art work defacing
many a classroom desk - 'Biffo' and the 'Phantom Bog Woman'.
Any old school chums please get in touch.

Greetings. First time on the web site? Then leave a message, don't have
a look without letting us know you've been. You could miss out on a lot
of fun catching up with old mates.
John Fisher (H 65-68)
Thought I`d put a note on the visitors page as I haven`t visited for a
while due to work and running ExWindsorBFPO (look in on The Windsor Club
- the link is in Windsor Links). So - Sandie Guppy, Kev Walker, Andy Hollingsbee,
Zoe Loftus, Joe Charlton, Pattie Maddren, Kala Anderson, Lesley Ferris,
Sarah O` Connor and the many other people who knew me .. where are you
all ? If anyone knows these people mail me please and Snookie if you`re
reading this give us a call or post me at The Windsor Club. Cheers.
Mike Massey (S 77-82)
The usual old thing out there. Does anybody remember either myself or my
brother. We are Michael and Keith Hearn with limited memories of our time
at Windsor Boys School. Mr Fox was my tutor and I remember a few other names
of teachers. If any of the second year and above who spat all over my (and
other first years) blazers during the screening of Jungle Book are at the
reunion, I will not hold it against you!

I was a pupil at King Alfred School, Ploen and then moved to Hamm when
Ploen closed down. I have just been reunited with one old school friend
June Pummery and we would love to hear from any others who were at either
school with us especially Carola Laverack, Lynne Francis, Tubby Rogers.
Jeanette Crossley (K 59-61)
Both me and my brother (Steve) were `boarders` WBS and saw the amalgamation
with WGS and the eventual closure of the school - I`m looking forward to
catching up with old friends. Has anyone got a copy of the last ever Concordia
mag? I was never sent one.
Paul Valentine ( C81 - closure)
I last visited Hamm in 1992 while I was working for a spell in Hamburg.
First time since I left in 1970. I don't know if there are any trips planned,
but I'm thinking of organising a couple of days there immediately after
the reunion in June. I might just pop over in the car for a couple of days
from the Sunday. If anyone else is interested, I'm happy to make up a party,
either using private cars or arranging transport. It would round off the
event really well. Get in touch if you are interested.
Nick Welford (E 68-70)
Hi, Great site and society. I'm amazed at how many people I recognise just
looking through the visitors' messages.
Drop me a line anyone who knew me..It`ll be great to hear from you.
Bye for now
Paul Valentine (B 80-83)
"Ringo" Roberts, Stan (Llawern?? phonetic!), Ma Brown, Dudley Chater,
Mr Wylie, Frau Schickloff (sp.), Frau Kaula (sp.).......thats about as
much as my ailing memory can recall regarding staff.
get much better when it comes to mates....."Chip" Coggins (C ?-69), Tim
Ackehurst (B 65-66) who had an older brother,a house prefect in Balmoral
at the same time, Geoff Hurst (B 65 - Wembley 66!!!), Stuart Pearce, Mike
Mawer - both Sandringham till '69 and not forgetting Fred Winkworth (H
The only other "fond" memories are CCF summer camp '68 (or more probably
'69) on Lunnenburg Heath and the grotesque annual steeple chase.
CAN ANYONE FILL IN THE MISSING PARTS OF MY WOEFUL MEMORY?????
Graeme Bowell (S 65-69)
I was told about the web site and spent some time locating it as I didn't
have an address. It's been great going through the pictures - but I didn't
find me! Have recognised a few names so far. I wonder if Iain Butler is
'Geezer' that I knew in Balmoral house when I attended the Boys School for
all my 'A'levels ('Geezer' was in Caernarvon 71-74 - DP). I'm just
about to join the society so hope to be getting in touch with a few more
people from school. My memory has begun to fade so there are a lot of names
I don't remember.
Carole Brannigan (E69-73)
Hi, I would love to find anyone who remembers me from Sandringham. I was
the one always in trouble with matron! It has been great reading through
all the messages. I hope to meet up with you all at the reunion.
