Was telling my kids all about my time at WGS and wondered if there was possibly a website! Amazed and pleased to recognise names on list.

I have only just found this site and spent a few fascinating hours going over the messages and finding a few names that I remember well. I am John "Baz" Bartlett and my elder brother Bill was also there. We were from SHAPE in Paris and used to catch the Trans Europe Express. I started in form 4c and dorm 20 until half term then moved to dorm 3. This was in the summer term of '62. In the autumn term I was in 5c and moved into the infamous dorm 4.There I stayed until I left in the summer of '63 at the ripe old age of 15.Some names that spring to mind are:- "Boots" Kelly, Keith Read,Robert "Chet" Chetwynd, "Speedy" Carr,"Jacko" Jackson,Alan "Pooky" Pook, "Paddy" Lafferty,"Wolly" Wollaston,Alan Banks,Jimmy Wiseman,to name a few.Also, several teachers like "Ned" Kelly -the best history teacher ever (and the most fearsome with the slipper)"Pud" Watson, "Swish" Cutler, "General" Kopke,and not forgretting Mr Nesbitt-Hawes the house master who, for 3 terms, used to walk down the house every afternoon after tea, hear me strumming on the guitar, open the door and say "no activities tonight John"?, "no Sir, not tonight". I wonder how he never twigged that I never once took part in any "activities". I did used to do cross country runs with Keith Read so that we could stop and have a fag half way round. One day, his watch stopped and we tried to time it so that we got back in our "not bad" time as usual. Unfortunately we had set a time that got us into the team for the inter house competition. This was a problem because we had never been right round the course and, apart from "Boots" and one large boy from Balmoral, we came in last! Mr Nesbitt-Hawes was not impressed. I did get gated on my last term for smoking-Which I gave up many years ago- with my mate "Hod" Hodkisson, whose ambition was to join the Civil Service. I wonder if he ever became "Our Man in Havana"?Now I have found the site, I will join the society-as will my brother Bill- and will attend the next re-union. I would love to hear from anyone out there. I live in Ipswich, look forward to hearing,and hopefully seeing some of you,in the near future.

Just found the website yesterday by chance. Recognised a few names on the members list particularly Gina Knight who was a good mate. Also Karen Bird who put up with sitting next to me in class for 2 years. Would be great to catch up. Where did all the years go?

Just read your message John Bartlett, I'm in contact with Rob Chetwynd and he moved to France a couple of months ago

Lesley Annable (B60-63)

7 Dec 2006

Hi ,Lesley, Thanks for the message and it's good to know that people are in touch. Next time you speak to "Chet", remind him of how - when he was mail monitor - he used to tick off my non-existent letter home each week.It would be good if he could contact me and,depending on which part of France he's in, I could meet up with him.Hope all is well with you and yours. Cheers......John

To John Semple (H69-73) and maybe Ian lister. It fells like I'm writting to older boys and I suppose it always will. So how those extra couple years of age never really go away. So one always feels younger. Well I just wanted to say Hi, as I recognised your name John as well as recognising Ian Listers. I never really knew you, but talk would percolate down the corridors to even the younger dorms. I was there at the same time H69-72 and left after my third year. I well remember some
good rugby played both as interhouse and also I remember the Rugby Sevens which produced possible the best rugby ever seen in Windsor. I think you were probably a fourth year whilst I was a third. As I said this was just to say hi, and to let you know there are a number of others from the same period who log in and occasionally get in touch. I Hope both you Ian Lister are doing well and good luck for The New Year.

Michael Greenwood (H69-72)

Just wanted to wish everyone that remembers me a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, especially Angie Barnard, Debbie Rymer, Julie Tibbs, Chris Lancaster, Steph Southall, Cheryl Blackmore, Andy Youngs, Paul, John and Debbie Falcus and anyone else I've forgotten to mention. Hope to see as many of you that can make the reunion in Blackpool, it should be a good one, there's plenty of Night Clubs so we can party for as long as we want. Hope to see you all soon

saw a message from Ian Cutts, although you called me Phil and not Paul, i will of course talk to you, and do remember your short fat hairy legs and unique eating habits. i would like to take this opportunity to wish all friends from the crazy days of windsor, a very happy christmas and safe New year. it would be great if we all made that little bit of extra effort to try and find those lost souls out there that no very little about this site and the fantastic work the committee do to try and keep us going. If we dig deep i am sure we can find those friends and teachers that made such a huge impact on our formative years. I for one will be throwing myself into the ample bosum of Miss Kelly roberts at the next reunion to thank her for her sterling efforts in not only contributing to the committee but for introducing me to her wily feminine ways all those years ago. happy Christmas to all of you and keep the spirit of windsor alive.

I wanted to send some sort of holiday greeting to my friends, but it’s so difficult in today’s world to know exactly what to say without offending someone. So I met with my lawyer yesterday, and on his advice I wish to say the following:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, our best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low
stress,non-addictive,gender neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

We also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2007,but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make our continent great (not to imply that any other continent is necessarily greater than any other continent) and without regard to race,creed,colour,age,physical ability,religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms:

This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. The wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.

Disclaimer: No trees were harmed in the sending of this message; however, a significant number of electrons were slightly inconvenienced.

Best wishes anyway,

Tiny McDermott (M77-79)

LOL - very funny Tiny however I shall be suing for RSI brought on by reformatting this message...... BillC
