Hey Bill! Love what you've done on here. I will have to start checking in more regularly! Hi to everyone, especially those crazy people I met at Blackpool and the Lakes. Special hi to Claire & Julie Morgan in Oz (where've you been lately?) and hi to John Lynch, Steve Beechie, Liz Guthrie, Brent & Darren Warren. People I remember-Shaz Gascoigne and the rest of 307 & 312 (Jo Lees, Lesley woodward, Pauline Hardy, Deb Rymer, Sabina Moffatt, Liz Prior, Janet McKenna, Lyn padbury and many more.) Has anyone seen Phill Lowrie lately? I lost in touch a few years back. If you read this Phill, give me a call to catch up. Hoping to see everyone sooner rather than later..

An abbreviated single year complicated by anorexia. Time has mellowed some overall unhappy memories & I do recall some decent sorts I'd like to contact.

Nice to see some familiar names. I was a member of the 'Soccer Team' that won the football festival on home soil along with messrs Carrick, Hollis, Brindleys, Black, Dyche, Weller, Leahy, Ian Mynott etc. I also remember Bobby Hoffman and Greg Oxford. I think my Brother-in Law Steve Pegram played Basketball with the Needhams but was probably too young to have played with Bobby.

Nic, Sorry we never sorted our 70's reunion. Events in my work life took over and I kind of lost the plot for a while.

Just been looking for some things in the attic and came across some old Concordia mags from the 70's. This reminded me of this site which I have not looked at for about 4 years. Good to see some of the old names like Alan Savage and Chris scriven from Wulfen where I used to live. Might even get around to joining the soc this time and see about the reunion.

Hello to anyone who might remember me. Susan Pepper, I just read your message - I remember you. I live in California. I've written a couple of messages over the years but haven't had any responses. I was in 1066 and All That as Anne of Cleves "When he first met me, he gave a stare and thought I looked like a Flanders mare" - maybe I did:) What a great time that was! Anyone know the whereabouts of Jenny Fairman or Jenny Wells? How about the twins Angela and Shelagh - all from Edinborough House?

Lynne Adams (E63-66)

I was a student in Windsor boys school Hamm from 1974-1981. My father was stationed in Soest 1974. In this year I was a day boy. In 1975 my father was stationed in Osnabrück. From then onwards I became a boarder.
My name is Daniel Arnephy and boarded in Caernavon House. Our housemaster was Mr. McKay.
In September 1981 we were stationed in Wetter/Ruhr. I left this school and went to Cornwall School in Dortmund.
I am now still living in Germany,. If you would like to contact me, please send me an email.

It`s great to know that Windsor boys school has a society and I would really like to see pictures from Caernavon House at the time I was there. I would like to get in contact with the pupils who were with me at the time I was there. Thank you very much. I`ll keep in touch.

I went to WGS until my 5th year - My father got stationed back to England and I was pulled out in October 1978. Not before I managed to get mixed up with the wrong crowd. (Unfortunately after all of these years, my memory has taken on other information - but here goes). Sandringham House.

We (me and a few others from WGS) managed to slip by our houses mistresses (mine was Miss Lilly Devine) hop over the fence and nip to the boys school for whatever the reasons were back then - mine were just the rush of doing something we shouldn't be. Anyway, we were eventually caught because we were loud coming back in and Lilly Devine caught us. After a while we were got our privileges back and were allowed out......when we decided it would be cool to get drunk on some Cheap Wine....which we did and were sent over to sick bay - however some poor girl had gotten the chicken pox so we were sent back to Sandringham where Miss Devine posted herself outside of our dorm all night. The finale was we were put on report, so some smart alec decided that we should run away. At tea-time the girls packed us food and supplies, that night we ran away - meeting up with Noddy and friends.....and wouldn't you know it - it rained so we snuck into a barn; low and behold the farmer found us the next day and called the police. Our headmistress (don't remember her name) and Mr. Sarney and the boys headmaster suspended us....can you believe it?

I am interested in finding people that would remember me - I checked your site to find 2 girls that I remember (Sara Marshall and Lesley Fryer), unfortunately they are on the lapsed are the chances of them being in touch with someone else on the site.

In the mean time, I am interested in any information that you could give me - that isn't posted on the site before joining.

23 Aug 2006

A warm hello to you all. I see a number of names that I remember from my 4 years at WBS but a great many more are missing. Those straight off the top of my head that I instantly recall for one reason or another are : Jack Worrall, Mr Kitchen, Geoff Hern, Mr Carey, Mr Bingham, Mr Chater, was the economics teacher really called Mr Piggy or was that a nickname? And what on earth was the name of the rural studies teacher who used to make you jump off a chair whilst holding your sideburns? Students I remember : Roy Bird, John Needham, Steven Hodby, Andy Messer, Graham Simpson, Peter Hudson, Nigel Blandford, Edward Foley, Alan Savage, Alan Tait, Geoff and Alan Gravener, Steven Stevenson.... to name but a few.

They were good times indeed, Best wishes

Hi Lesley Annable, yes I do remember you and Wendy. Wendy and I roomed together for a while - lost touch with her in the late 60s, she lived in NZ then. Sorry 4 not acknowledging your message before now but have been travelling for the last 2 months to remote parts of Nth Queensland and getting up close and personal with Humpback Whales. Have tried 3 times now to become a member - not having much luck. Would love to catch up with both of you on 40 plus years. Cheers

Hi again, was just scanning through the messages - and noticed that Sheena Morrison may or may not know the whereabouts/contact information for Sarah Marshall - please post a message if you do. I have just joined so hopefully will be able to contact you. Also, noticed in 2001 that Theresa Richardson (Tree) had posted a message mentioning my name....hopefully you still surf the site. Anyone out there have contact with Mike Ismay, Karin Makin, Karin McCall, or Lesley Fryer? My dad was stationed in Osnabruck, next door neighbours were Baldwin (2 boys) - possibly went to WBS - if so post. Thanks - and greetings to all from California!! (Weather rocks!!!!)

Well Hi once again, I am still looking for some familiar names but not having any luck. I guess that just shows how popular one was. Any way if any body can remember Christine Morgan from Hillsborough then let us know. The re union sounds great. Well it bye for now from down under.

Andy Youngs, Kim Fletcher is around, he was at the last reunion in Newbury. His sister Denise is also around, look at the names list once you have joined the Windsor Society for contact details, it's a right den of enequity!

Scott, we were crap with the 70's reunion, but hopefully we can put it right by all attending the next reunion in Blackpool next June! We all need to drum up support from the 70's brigade!

Sites starting to loom busy again Bill, keep up the good work!


glad your up for the next reunion in Blackpool,look forward to catching up! I've a photo taken in a disco in Belm with you, Paddy Ferris, Lorraine McCainsh and me that will make you laugh! Those shirts... I will try and wake up Jock Carroll, he's gone a bit quite the last couple of months. Managed to get him to the last reunion, will do my best again!

Take care!
