In reply to Martin Chamberlain`s message. Yes the stable looking buildings behind the gym were still there in my years at the school, unfortunately a sore subject as some of us took a little expedition up a rope one day that was dangling down from the roof window (near to hockey pitch) and found out it was belonging to the local German Fire Department. Ended up infront of the Headmaster AND fathers Commanding Officer. tuttutututut...

I remember the chapel choirs making a record (LP), can't remember what year it was but think it was 1966. Don't remember competing with the Beatles for the number 1 slot though!!
Sad news about Padre Thackery, it's because I used to catch the board rubber he threw at me in RE, that I was in the rounders team!!Anyone remember the inter schools athletics, at Rheindalen, when we stayed at Queens School(?) for a few nights? Mixed coach journeys both ways, what a novelty!!.

To 'Friends Reunited' and 'The Windsor Society'. Without you we may never have been in contact again. Many many thanks. .

I was one of the first pupils to attend in November 1953, my house number was C75 being of course the house name Caernarfon. If my memory serves me correct there were only 3 houses when the school first opened, they were Balmoral, Sandringham and Caernarfon. The girls block was on the right as you went through the gates, the boys behind it. On the top of the girls block was the sick bay, I remember spending time there as I made out I had a terrible stomach ache just because my friend was in there, she was sent back to our house and I ended up having to stay there for a couple of days and having some horrible medicine every 4 hours.
I loved every minuet of my years there.

Well have read through nearly all the messages that have been left it brought back a lot of memorys,Reconized a few of the staff names but time has dulled the mind to others,apart from those guys in my immediate circle and dorm.Who for one reason or another have not appeared here. I started in class 1 AF (I think it was) Mr Fox was our Form Teacher,The class room Its self was right at the top of the main school block opposite the catholic church,Basically top of the stairs turn left.That is after coming througt the main doors and turning right in to the tuckshop.
I also have recollections of wandering through the Sauerland in the middle of winter on school trips and getting lost much to the disapproval of the staff.After get back I remember Mr fox giving us a slide show of one of the trips to the sounds of the Beatles, Here comes the sun. ( Which I can now admit was rather good). And every time I hear that record It always gives me a warm glow and fond memorys of good times I had there, It must have been good if I can remember It after 33 Years or so. Hopefully in the near future some of the guy I used to know will come on line and who knows,???? TTFN.

Very remiss of me but I have not been looking at the notice board for a long time. Apologies to all you folks who just got emails talking about things you said last August!
Just to let you know that I have sussed the technology and have loaded some photos on to the Yahoo exwindsorbfpo site. Without the aid of a matron, I shall be attempting to create a public photo album under my Yahoo account Cairncross_UK, so for those of you who know how, they may appear there soon. Only a few of some dorm / rollcall shots but it may bring back memories for some!

Hi to anyone who may know me. My brother Steve was in Caernarvon House at the same time. We lived in Berlin and both have very vivid memories of that long, long train journey to and from school. The Funkturm was a very welcome sight each time we went home!! Does anyone know the whereabouts of Cindy Astell and Jan Routledge. I shared a dorm with them in my last year at school and have not been in touch with them since I left. Our birthdays were all within a few days and I always think of them each time they come round. We've had quite a lot since 1975!! Would love to hear from anyone that remembers me or my brother.

If anyone knows how to contact him let me know. I didn't attend windsor school but this site might help me to find him. Thanks..

Better still, if anyone does have contact with John , let John decide whether or not to contact Tracy himself.. Doug
