Hi everyone, I'll try not to make this too long...(yeah, right)
I can't believe it didn't occur to me until now to do a net search on WBS. Finding this site unleashed a cascade of wonderful memories. Cascade? More like a Tsunami! I immediately contacted my sister Heidi who went to WGS 1967 to about 1971 to check it out.
Reading the Visitors Book was like opening the shutters in the attic. Names and stories I thought long gone in senility suddenly returned. I wonder if those who left messages years ago still visit the site: From David Gabriel's 2/00 message: Of course I remember you - what a great time we had! I'm doing fine, and Tommy Ritter is married with kids and working for DuPont. From 2001: "Hi" to Tom and Harry McPartland and John Christens. To Graham Keil: Yep, I remember your sister Sheena. To John Fisher: You mentioned Michael Cassatorgiani. He was a great guy. As I recall he came from Malta and hated PE almost as much as I did (that damn cross country...) Reading the list of past members and seeing Niki Benn's name brought back warm memories. Wish you hadn't moved away. Hope your life turned out great. Names I remember but didn't see: Malcolm McKay, Roland Hill, Michael Shepherds. So many whom I wondered what became of them. Lots of names and memories resurrected: Piggy ("I'm going to bounce you laddie"), Pegleg, Ma Flinders, Hayden Jones, Mr Hearn (those log tables....), the Brindleys, Malcolm Dineen. I remember doing a play at WGS (anything to get into the birds school) "The Crucible". I also recall torturing peoples ears with my lame renditions of Alice Cooper songs at socials. Sorry about that. Mainly I remember great friends and great teaching. They took an un achieving sod and somehow turned me into a decent student for which I'm grateful. I still know British history better than US. No one over here seems to be aware of William the Conqueror. My neighbors drive SUV's and I still long for a Lotus or Marcos. Oh well. If you haven't fallen asleep yet, you may be interested in some of my other yank compatriots. I can't guarantee these are correct, but they're close: Bill Galloway is doing research and teaching in Asian languages on the West Coast (that's after his career as a star chef), Mike and Bruce Kolesar have checked in on the visitors book, as has Bow O'Bar. Beth Thompson is working in North Carolina for a philanthropic/charity company. Lena Forehand in a Dentist in the same state. I'm not sure we don't need a US branch of the Society, although seeing each other in middle age might be too much for our hearts to take...

Scott,
Your number is not listed in the contact details of the Society list, butas long as you haven't moved home I should get your number, so will call you in the next day or so.Kathleen Gray and Marj Wright are also keen to help organise something, so with Sean and Chippy's group we should get something going! Hope the new job is going well!?

Sean, does your group ever meet during the week in the evening? It can be difficult getting down to London at the weekend, but I am often there in the week? (not for the actual reunion, just a few beers!).Nice to see regular names reappearing on this forum, it's been to quite for
to long!

Hi to everybody,

Just a little hello from down under. Perth Western Australia has at long last had some rain lets hope it keeps coming for the rest of our Winter. I am still hopeful that some old school mates from 1970,71 and 72 may visit this site. So if any body can remember Christine Morgan, Cathy Mckenzie, or anybody I should remember let me know. Thanks

houses.If there's anybody who would like to get in touch for a chat please feel free, and look forward to hearing from you.

Hi James, Just found the site, and like yourself, have spotted loads of '70s inmates, what a blast from the past!!, I must admit its been what, 28 years or so since Iv'e been called "Paddy", so I had to read your message a couple of times, just to make sure!! Iv'e emailed you via "the other side", where, what, and how the hell are you?, I was just thinking about all the names I remember, and its loads, so surely someone MUST remember me, so if anyone does it would be great to hear from you. You may also remember that my younger brother ( Frank ) was in caernarvon at the same time, Iv'e spotted one or two of his "sidekicks"on the site, "Plug" Hughes, Pricey, and I think I spotted Jimmy Mair, not sure? Any how I'll keep on "trawling" to see if I can spot any one else

James Mackenzie,
I am in touch with Jock Carroll, dragged him along to the last reunion!
Jean Frost, yes we lived in Vehrte, Osnerbruck. Jill is well and catches up on this web site from Time to time. I will tell her your asking. She trained as a nurse, graduating last year! How's that for a career change! She's been married twice and divorced twice, to the same man! Glutton for punishment! Hi to Pat Aris!

A Big hello to anyone who remembers me? (Angie Barnard, Dave Edmonson, John & Debbie Falcus, Michelle Hall, Kelly Roberts, Debbie Rymer, Steph Southall, Sharon & Denise Baker, Chris Lancaster, Andy Youngs, Julie Tibbs, Jim Alger and anyone else I've forgot). Really hacked off that I missed last years reunion and seeing everyone again, unfortunately I have been really ill since 2002. Hoping to get to the next one whenever it is. Have not been able to work since 2002 and I'm really starting to climb the walls, would love to here from anyone one out there who remembers me.
Take care and hope to here from you soon.
