The 2 chief aims of the Windsor Society are to help ex-pupils & staff of the Windsor Schools find their friends & colleagues through membership of the Society and to facilitate reunions. The Windsor Society (which is non-profit making) relies on membership subscriptions to provide the service, which includes a full register of members with contact details and regular Newsletters and updates to the register. If you are already a member then you already have access to the membership list of 1700 or so names and addresses known to the Society. If you are interested in receiving this (and all of the Newsletters to date from April 1992) please see the How to Join page

Have just found my Song of Praise book which is disintergrating and it is signed by past friends.
Lynn O,Leary, Chris Morgan, Sue Smith, Julie Truswell, Rhonda Briffitt, Jan Swain, Fee, Debbie,
Kathy, Jakie, Anna, Janet. Unfortunately not all signed their surnames. If any of you are out there it would
be great to hear from you. The book was signed in June 1972 when I left to embark on an adventure with
my family to Australia. We are still here. I would love to contact Chris Morgan. If any one can help it would be great.

hi pam ross - jean cooke here (now cavanagh) I remember 1066 and all that i had 2 parts i was in the very first scene wearing bright dress with pink roses on - and in a later scene as OBIDIAH BOBBLENOB as an egg seller lol. One thing I have never ever admitted to was that the boys brought some booze that nite and i got stoned i think it was some german liquor. I had to appear in the finale and was pxxxxd to say the least. I remember u as elizabeth in all your glory. I wish i had know about the little reunion or i would have been there. Have not been to a reunion yet but us 60s girls and boys must get together sometime before its too late.

Fond memories of those days. I was a vulnerable 12 year old in 1961 in Hilsborough. My number being 224 ( I think)
Excelled at Cricket and Cross Country coming third in the school. Alan Howells former friend came first and Andy Marshall second.
Does the school still exist and if so how can I visit?
Left in November 1962 as father posted back to england.
House master was Ernest Flowers. still have the house photo taken in the summer of 62'

Paddy Hawkins, thank you for the reply. l don`t remember the football or the swimming.
Chris Hardy it may have been who went on to Officer training. He was my closest `home` friend, as l`m sure he went to PRS. Julian Barber was my closest school friend at WBS, lived in Berlin.
Led Zeppelin indeed, to this day. And much more and varied since those years.
Did we not swop your Colloseum Live for my Jethro Tull, Aqualung ? l`m sure it was you.
l think it was a Joe Cocker album you decided to throw away out your bedroom window one day, landing in a bush,where you left it. l retrieved it a few days later. Took it in, played it a few times. You tried to persuade me to throw it back in the hedge.
Did you know Debbie and Nikki ? l can`t recall their surname. Chris went out with D.

hi Paddy,
sorry for not replying sooner, I haven't looked at the
site for a while as I've been busy with other things.
My brother Steve (Gregory) is living in Dubai where he
works as an insurance salesman. He has three children
(a boy and two girls) and three grandchildren (all
boys). He lived in Soest for twelve years or so (after
a short stint in England working in a Bank after
leaving WBS), then in Kent for ages, before moving to
Dubai about three years ago. His youngest daughter is
just finishing University, and his middle child spent
a year living in Germany after she graduated.If you send me your e-mail address I'll forward it to him.

Like the Pictures of the Grange Reunion, looks like a good time was had by all. I even recognise a few familiar faces.

am looking for any members (Brits or Yanks) who were at Windsor from 1970-1974 that remember Beth Oxford, Greg Oxford, or Lena Forehand. Names like Elaine and Penny from Sandringham (WGS), Ian ? and Gerry Bird, Chris Storey, Claire Maxwell, Paul Nicholson, Tommy Ritter, Bill Galloway, Ellen McCandlish, Kathy Sellers, Michael Kolesar, and Melanie Mundy. It’s been 30 years away from Windsor Schools. I heard from Sheena Keil (Marlboro 74) and that was great! . Thanks,

Hello Sue Finlay,
Thanks for the memory jog. Healey is indeed the captain with the ball, McArthur is the goalkeeper and Brierley is centre back row. The last one could be Winrow. Brian Glossop does't appear in the photo. He was at the 2003 reunion. I 'found' John Shepard through FR but now I've 'lost' him again. Our excuse for a 'disappointing season' is that our best players left the school in the summer of '56. That's m' story and I'm stickin' to it. ;o)
I remember Max Alexander; and Ralph was at the 2003 reunion. I used to 'go out' with Brenda Smith from Sandringham. You may not remember her as she left for Singapore in '56. She was the very first secretary of the Windsor Society. She's on the 'lapsed members list' so I haven't been able to 'catch up' with her.
It would be great if you could enter your copy of Concordia onto the 'Ex Windsor BFPO' website at http://www.exwindsorbfpo.com/ A number of the old school mags have been scanned and put on there. You may even find some of your old chums on there.
