Hi There! My name is Roy Webster, I suffer from Cerebral Palsy since birth and I live in Berlin in Germany. I must admit that I had nothing to do with Windsor-Boys-School, but my two elderly brothers Robert and Derek Webster spent their schooldays in the 70's. After searching in the internet a couple of years ago, trying to find some interesting history on Windsor-Boys-School in Hamm/Germany, I am chuffed to suddenly come across this very interesting homepage.

At last an opportunity to perhaps make contact with some of the great friends from a gerat period of life (old school friends). I was in Hillsborough house from age thirteen untill sixteen when Haydn Jones was the housemaster. The names of fellow students that i recall are 'Peter
White' Dave Dilly, Brent Manuel and of the staff Pop Farrah, Mr Ellis MR barrington thats about it, i wish i could remember more. I have fond memories of inter-house competitions on the main football and rugby pitches in the centre of the school; of 'letter writing' to the girls school; of the end of school play (something about Dracula) and the end of school disco (summer 78);of sneaking into Caernarvon house (or was it Sandringham?) to watch 'Happy Days' because our house t.v. couldn't
pick it up. Lots of schoolday memories. Anyone who may recognize my name-please get in touch!!

Well done Bwabs, on your above message, see its easy, I think a wait of 2 years for another reunion is a long time, so how about some of the mid 70s crew meeting up for an
informal mini reunion somewhere, sometime this summer possibly, that is agreeable to most, if not everyone. When I joined the club there were only a couple of people I knew from Hamm, now that number is well into double figures in just over a year, so heres to the future. Some names that I hope will think about the meet, are John Gay, Vince Gulley, Tony Reilly, Colin Cope, Molly Graham, Chip Carpenter, Ted Wick, Nigel Murray, Neil Carrick, Dave Gordon and any girls that knew the afore-mentioned lads, some other names I am in contact with that are'nt online yet are Skin Kelk, Paddy Ferris, Jim Turvey, Rob George, apologies to anyone I've missed, but if you can make it all
the better. Regards.

If you had attended the first of the Reunions at Newbury, you would have met up with Phil Wharton, who had made a special effort to attend from wherever he is now based overseas.
Incidentally, I was also at primary school with the Whartons in Wuppertal in 1959.

Mr. Kelly I would also like to contact Bob Chetwind, and if anybody knows the whereablouts of Chris Halford (Hillsboro) I would appreciate it.

Just found the site.Well done to Mr Massey @ Co for an excellent job.I was in Sandringham house from 1978-1981.Would have stopped longer but Mr Scott was convinced I should leave ASAP as he had packed my bags and was nice enough to take me to the train station.He must have been concerned for my safety because he would not leave my side untill the train left the station (I swear there was a tear in his eye).

What a find - I was just surfing the web and for the first time in 6 years of having access to the internet typed in the words "Windsor Boys School - Hamm" and this site popped up! I was so excited!! I was in Caernarvon house when Mr McKay was housemaster, Tim Westland was winning everything in Athletics and I was going out with Deb Percival. Gosh those were the days!!

Found this site as a link from 'friendsreuinted' I recognised names like Bambi Marshall, Mike Hill and Margaret Burrell. Their younger siblings Andy, John and Jean were my contemporaries. I knew them in Germany and then Malaya and I would love to get in touch. My mother and Mrs Hill still keep in touch so I know what Mike, John
and their sister Shirley are at.I have sent an e mail to Jon Marshall asking for Andy's whereabouts so I am hoping for a reply soon.I tried to copy the same mail to Mike on the two addresses that I found in the visitors book, but they keep coming back. I don't recognise any names of my old classmates or housemates, but I hope that when I join the society proper, I will see some familiar names.

I was really surprised and rather delighted to find this website. I was at WBS just for one year in 1960, long enough for it to make an impression upon me. I was in the first form and recall having the 'slipper' within a very short time of being there. I was the one who got caught
during an inter-dormitory pillow fight!!
I also remember the floods affecting the school. The whole school site was covered in a few feet of water - very exciting for an eleven year old.
I was co-opted into the scrum of some rugby team which was being filmed for I know not what. I also remember the wonderful schools meals we used to get and have a recollection of a 'banquet' involving a stuffed pig! It was a function for adults and older boys - I think.
On one occasion there was a house dance (?) with the girl's school and I met a girl called Carol, much older than me, who I had crush on. It was all so long ago and I often wondered what happened to the school. My father was posted back to the UK and I went on to a grammar school which I stayed at when he returned to Germany. I don't suppose anyone will recall - I certainly can't remember any names. My father was with the Rifle Brigade at Wuppertal. A good website and the photographs of the school confirmed that my memory isn't that bad.

Hi, Found this site via Friendreunited.co.uk and what a find. The above site has gone round the office like wildfire. The photos bring back fond memories ie. Remember Peg-Leg or Mr. Riddle and his DM sole and the fear it installed in us all? Remember the mote freezing over and our feeble attempts to skate. I was a border all the way from Berlin. I remember the excessive amount of time spent traveling between Hamm and Berlin, but what fun we had on those journeys going through the corridor taunting the Eastie Beasties. Would like to hear from anyone who remembers me at WBS, especially Dean Pogue, Quiggs, Faulky, Mark Brewster, Jenks, Annette Lomaz, Paula O'Brien, Dez Russell, Mark Henderson

This is awesome! Does anyone have contact with Clifford Harris, Trevor McArdle, Jimmy Nelson? Yes Sean - It was Tim Westmore, but I do remember that there was a guy in our house (Caernarvon) in our year who was just as fast and ran in this wierd upright position (100m), I don't think you will have beat him! His name escapes me at the moment.
