Wishing everyone a healthy and wealthy 2002.
Trust you all enjoyed the Christmas & New Year festivities. It's that 'Life Begins' age for me in a few weeks time, like many, I would love to get in touch with friends I have lost touch with over the years. Have scanned through Novembers & Decembers Visitors' Book, few more names bringing back memories. Apologies to anyone who has emailed my at my hotmail account, as my access to the internet is via the company, who have blocked us accessing Hotmail/etc, and please use my business address. Love to hear from you.

Still trying to find out information on and hopefully make contact with Bill Ponting.
Bill has never appeared on the members list up to now.
I believe his father was in the RAF and Bill may have joined up as well.
During my five years with the RAF I once saw a W. Ponting mentioned in some official paperwork but no contact details.
If you know anything about Bill or his whereabouts or if your reading this Bill please contact me at the e-mail below..

A belated Happy New Year to all.
At last we are seeing a few names from the early sixties. There are a lot more appearing in friendsreunited.co.uk website which has free registration but a fee to contact people. The same people are not appearing on our Windsor website. Why not leave a message on the Windsor Site so friends can contact you. Similarly people who are not registered on the friendsreunited site, register its free! This must increase the chance of catching up with friends and present us with the opportunity to expand membership for the Windsor Society.
Jon Marshall I cannot contact you through your bigpond e-mail address.
Roger Holyoake can you contact me through this e-address.
Does anyone have Sue Brewer's e-mail address
David Otter can you contact me re:Pierre Nayna Best wishes and regards.

Mike Hill (B59-63)

Has anyone tried contacting me on my work's email address? For some reason it is showing "dfres" - it should read
kathy.baird@dfes.gsi.gov.uk, I can also be contacted on: kathy@bairdk.fsnet.co.uk Just a few more names of those I'd like to contact: Maria Murdoch, Linda Blackburn, Hazel Sorbie. Haven't seen Linda since she came to my wedding in November 1972. Met Hazel again in Dorset (Blandford) in 1975 (thereabouts!!). Anyone else who knew me is quite welcome to email..

O-levels in 1961? - especially

A belated happy new year to you all. This site was a great find last year but have had no luck finding any information or making contact with my best mates Ian Black and Martin Baldwin (i think he had a twin sister Linda? at WGS). Also remember Paul Miller, "James" Bond and Steve Wyz...Looking forward to getting back in touch with more old friends this year.
Steve Carr give me a ring.

Belated Happy New Year to all ex-Windsorites, Boys and Girls, oh, and Teachers as well........
So far I have managed to contact about a dozen or so from my days at Hamm, and most of them, like me, were living in Osnabruck ( Belm, mostly )at the time. I would still like to hear from anybody else who might remember me, I could list a lot of names, but it would take up a LOT of this message board, so to keep it short, if you think you might know me, email me, and I will reply......meanwhile, a VERY HAPPY 2002 TO ALL.

Alan Brady (H72-74)

I would like to get in touch with Susannah Jackson and anyone else who was in the same dorm or anyone else who remembers me.

I had three very enjoyable years in Hillsborough House, with fond memories of Matron and Miss Brown the Headmaster. I cannot believe when I look back, just how supportive the staff were. Hope to hear from someone soon.

We are having some problems with the server where some people are getting an error message when applying to join. The applications ARE getting through
, so please do not worry or feel you have to repeat the application. Sorry for any inconvenience.

I will shortly improve the Joining process to make it more 'online'. The current system generates an email which is sent on to Gill Walker who then sends an information pack to the surface address on the application. This is not 'instant' so please bear with us in the meantime.

Also, it may not be clear, but the Visitors' Book messages are not 'instant'. They are intercepted by myself to check for 'nasties', etc (to protect the innocent!) before being posted onto the site. I do my best to do this on a daily basis but sometimes this is not possible - please do not be concerned if your message does not appear immediately - it'll appear sooner or later!

Hi to all,
Does anyone have any contacts with the mid sixties Maltese contingent. Any news on Michael Cassatoragiani and Michael Carrawana (sorry about the spelling)and any others who resided in Hillsborough at that time.
Thanks.

Was in Marlboro Hse as a 1st year left 1974 as a 5th year.

I'm chuffed to bits to have found this site. Anyone from the early sixties know the whereabouts of Brian Powell or Charles 'Puds' Watson (so named after our maths master). Anyone remember the pain of ***** ***** after lights-out? I still have 'Dunlop' printed on my bum! .

Paul Bertie (M61-63)

Having just found friendsunited and this site I am amazed to have found 2 people whom I have wondered about over the last 25 years. However there appears to be a shortage of contacts from H'boro' during the early seventies (or were we made strange insular individuals by the regime of MR J****?) It would be great to hear from anyone who might think they recognise my name ( and I dont mean WC doors!!) or who were about during my time. I left after my O levels in the 5th year.
Best wish to all .
Andy Gent (H71-75)

Just found the site, all the best to anyone who remembers me as the failed drummer in Richard Gardeners group with Nethers.We were good till the American lads arrived with real amps. that put our converted radios to same..

Im staggered at finding this site and having spent a inordinate amount of time reading the visitors book can only echo the out pouring of feelings and stiring of memories that this brings.
i've already been in contact with Chip Carpenter and have contact with Steve Smith via another source. I am still scanning the site and will contact names I recognise but am more than happen to receive mail from anyone who remembers my name. (Jokes about WC's are boring!!) willi Henry
Steve mayne
angus Mac pherson

are all old friends I need to get in touch with but I cant believe that Carmen Borg posted to the site just before I found it . Memories indeed!.

Hi everyone, interesting website. It certainly brings back those memories. I have a house photograph of '66 and trying to put faces to names has been very difficult.
It's nice to see so many interested in this site and wish you all well, and may see you sometime..

Is there any facility to sort through the member list by house and year to make it simpler to look for old friends. If it can't be done on the web site, how about providing a CD-rom for which I, for one, would be happy to pay for.

Mike Hutchinson (M64-68)

A 'members only' register on this site is currently on the drawing board and your suggestion is very welcome. Thanks Mike .. Doug

29January 2002
There don't seem to be many girls listed in the early 60's. Where are they all? As the schools were seperate, I@m afraid I don't know any of the boys. I was in form 3C and would love to hear from anyone who new me. Janine if your out there,please contact
