For the first time I was browsing the Windsor site and low and behold
I saw a message dated 23.12.06 from John(Titch)Hamilton whose dorm I
was in with my twin brother Keith from 1961-63. Titch how's your table
tennis? Never could beat you but there was never a more successful
intermediate team than ours in the history of the school was there?
We won every cup going during our time at the school. I often wondered
what became of you and the others, Ian Gibson and Robert Ritchie. Getting
in touch would answer another mystery for me.It would be amazing to
hear from you
after 43 yrs and if anyone else recognises me please also get in touch.
Kind regards and fond memories,

Hi Frank Knight and Billy Wilson. Sorry for the delay in replying to
your entries in the Visitor’s Book, but my computer is ‘down’
and awaiting repair this coupled with my e mail address having developed
a ‘glitch’. I have to rely on the computer at work for the
moment whilst working nights. I’ve applied for a ‘Joining
Pack’ so hopefully will be easily contactable in the future even
if I have to use my long suffering wife’s e mail address. Best
wishes to you all.

Can anyone please help my memory. Back in 1974 the Autumn Term 1st
& 2nd Year Social featured the School Group. I think they were called
Blood Orange and comprised of the Brindley Brothers on Guitar &
Bass and either Will or Greg Oxford on Drums.
If anyone knows the whereabouts of any of this guys or clarify the details
I would very much appreciate it. If any of Blood Orange are reading
this, take a look at www.predatur.com to see what you partly inspired
me to do.

Hi, My Name is Wayne Taylor.
I was in WBS Balmoral house from 1975 to 1978 (i think).
My brother Colin was also there from 73 to 78 and my sister Michele
was at WGS 72 to 77.
The only things i can remember from those days are that i was in the
CCF as was Colin and three of the teachers. Mr Lewis (music) Mr Kitchen
(French) and Mr Donavan house master. I was also in the school choir
and church choir. I cannot remember much else except we went from there
to Gloucester School Honne after that. The site is good and i hope it
will help fill in a few blanks.

Hi GA Gray(H73-77) I just thought I woud say hi as by the time you
were arriving in Hillsbrough I was just leaving but at the same age
of 11. I was probably in the same dorm three yeays earlier so some of
the friends I left behind would probably be known to you but by then
they would have just entered in to their fourth year. Buy you second
year some wd have been house prefects. Can you remember any, can you
remember Bennet, Green, Bates, or any others. What did you get up to
after lights out? As I said I never met you but I may have shared the
same dorms as you progressed through the house and years. Just to say
