Hello to all ex-WBS members. I was in Sandringham House 1959-60. not very
long, but long enough to know that if my father had stayed in Germany,
my education would have improved!! Too many schools during the primary
years and schooling in the state system on the return was a shock after
WBS with all the facilities we had then. I remember being in a dorm with
Allan Pook. Senior boys in Sandringham were the Barnacoats. There were
2 matrons, fr Kaule and fr Schidloff, both great fun but the latter was
a bit of a dragon. The housemaster was Derek Nesbitt-Hawes, headmaster
was Tom Beynon who every one respected. I was there when Dick Jolliffe
was injured. Very sad. I was also confirmed at St Boniface during my stay.
The minister always referred to films as fillems Good guy
though! Does any one else remember the rock cakes we used to get from
the dining hall. If you dropped one, the floor used to crack! After finishing
school in UK, I had a couple of ciivvy jobs, then joined the Army and
that was that for a thoroughly enjoyable 23 years until 1990. Since then,
more jobs, failed marriage and now living happily with a new partner in
The Forest of Dean. If there are any members of Sandringham or other houses
who remember me and can fill any gaps (of which there are many after 46
years) I would love to hear from them. PS Am still awaiting my joining

hope to hear from any one who remembers me, lost a lot of good friends
over the years but i still have the memories.
It is with regret that I have to announce the sudden death of my Father
Haydn Jones on 30 July 2005, aged 73. As a teacher from 1959 and
Housemaster of Hillsborough at WBS from 1962 to 1982 (I
influenced many a young life and never forgot a face or name in the process.After
mandatory retirement from BFES on reaching age 50 and returning to Wales,
he became the assistant National Secretary for the YMCA in Wales until
his retirement.He was certainly a Windsor character and is survived by
his wife Delyth,
myself and my sister Sian.
He had a large archive of WBS photos and I will endeavor to scan and post
them when time permits.
