Hello Ian Pulford, how are you after all these years?its been a long time since we where in Windsor Boys. I have been trying to contact other members of our years with no luck as yet,but have got my own computer now, so see if this works.

7 Mar 2008

Hi Ian Pulford, do you remember me from way back then. I used to come on the train from Paris. My sister, Jenny was also at the girls school, St James. We are both Australians. I played football (soccer) for Balmoral. I am back living in Perth now and have been since 1967. I remember some of the names you mentioned also. good to see some more Windsorites living in Oz.

Gez, I think the pool in Osnabruck was just off the Tank Road almost opposite Kleine Moscow on the bus route to the big Naafi and Cinema. Hope you and your family are okay. Not seen your Mum and Dad for a while, hope they are both okay.

hi ian pulford wow blast from the past that. yes i did go to windsor boys school. I was only there for only one or two terms back in 1963 but as far as i know i was in hillsborough. Unfortunately as i was only there a very short time at a rather youngish age i cannot remember named of boys i knew but if anyone does remember me i would love to hear from them.

Paul Wendes (H63-63)

10 Mar 2008

Hi my name is Maureen Press formerly known as Mo Pulford when I was at WGS from 64-67. I was in Balmoral House B1. Does anyone remember me?

Maureen Press (B64-67)

10 Mar 2008

Hi to all 'Windsorites' out there I can't believe have actually got a message posted have being trying for about a week, my brother Ian has been a lot luckier than me and remembers a lot more people. A bit more information about myself I remember being in the school hockey team and was friends with Sue Drury, Mo Petty, Ralph Sbnape, I remember Matron Hessie and saw she has posted a couple of messages in the early 2000 tried to contact her but my email bounced anybody any news about her, also remember Miss Elliot housemistress of Balmoral and Miss Evans headmistress of WGS. I can also remember the boys breaking into the school and what a furore that caused especially in those days. Any RAF Geilenkirchen 'mob' out there from my time 63 - 67, remember Peter, Neil and Andrea Arnold anyone any news of these people, I saw in messages that Neil had been ill Maureen Press formerly Mo Pulford B1 64-67

Maureen Press (B64-67)

10 Mar 2008

Hi Ian Pullford, I am also in the process of joining The Windsor Society so my email address will not be available just yet, yes i do remember the planes and at a later time when we moved rooms facing the german gardens and fitting fire crackers to them,then watch them blow
up,great fun for us, but not the neigheours , first garden full of paper bits, second garden not so much, third garden RECORD BREAKERS,we had to stop to many complaints from gardeners.

Trevor Allpress (B64-68)

12 Mar 2008

Hi Maureen Press (nee Pulford), You may not recall me, but I certainly remember you from Geilenkirchen. I belonged to the rarer vaiety of inhabitant of 'Geilers' in as much my father was in the Army. I certainly recall, with huge fondness, the great crowd we had: The Arnolds, Joan Rickerby (who I have been in touch with and who now lives in the USA), the Larners, the Staffords to name but a few. I didn't spend too long at Windsor as I joined the Army a month short of my 16th birthday. Great to see another name from the past. Regards

Rick Licence (C 64-66)

12 Mar 2008

Hi Rick, great to hear from you I had seen your name in previous messages and thought I know that person so at least not all my grey matter is not dead. I also remember our 'Geilers mob' with great affection we used to have great times when we got home on holidays. I don't really remember the names of the other people you said have you any old photos of those times, I am going to go through my parents photos and see if I can find any. Where are you now? my family emigrated to Australia in 1968 we both live in South Australia. I am married with three children and now how got one grandchild with another on the way. My brother and Ian and I have joined the Windsor Society to see if we can get anymore information about our time at the Windsor Schools. Once again thanks for making contact.

Hello to my fellow members of 60's brigade.I log onto this site quite often....how sad is that...but I rarely see former pupils from the 60's and its great to now see a flurry of old relics pop up.My sister Christine was in Balmoral House and I served my time at one point with 3 of my brothers James, Peter and David;in Marlborough.As I recall we were the best house at just about everything from cricket, footy to rugby,basketball with David Hodgson as our skipper and even hockey,swimming and table tennis,tennis and athletics.I remember with great fondness all my mates from both schools and particularly Jackie Stafford and wonder where are you all now and are you enjoying the good life like what I is? What a wunderfil edukation we got? Last year I spent a memorable 2 months in Australia and New Zealand so I envy you Aussie guys.Its truely an awesome place. Hope everyone stays healthy and happy.Loads of Love..Ralph x

Ralph Bennett (M62-68)

14 Mar 2008

Gez/Scott, the swimming pool was indeed more or less opposite Kiene Moscow. If I remember correctly the buildings were mostly white. I remember the place as being state of the art, but then again I was only about 13 then. I think I have some photo's of the place, taken in the late 90's.

Lynda & Janice, bet your both getting all geared up for your Osmands Concert! Don't be getting too excited, none of us are getting any younger, are we Janice. hehehehehehehe

Still looking to contact Mike Melia, Steve Forward or Dave Bremner if anyone has any info.

Alan Savage (C71-74)

Hi Ralph Bennett, my name is Stuart Baines I was in Marlborough House 64-66. I remember you slightly but I remember your brother James well. We were in the same year and played in the same socccer team. He was a great dribbler with the ball, I remember. Your right when you say we had some great sports teams. We did. I received my house colours for soccer, rugby, basketball athletics and cricket. I was fortunate to be selected as the house cricket captain. The encouragement sport at Windsor Boys carried on into my adult life and as I joined the RAF I had plenty of opportunity to continue. Nice to hear from you and pass on my regards to James.

Stuart Baines (M64-66)

15 Mar 2008

Hello Ralph Bennett, don't know you but share your views about60's people, we were the best, i am sure we probably brushed shoulders at some stage fighting to get a cheese straw at morning tea!! great years, great school but Balmoral was the best house mate, obviously time has jaded your memeory, where do you live thes days and are you a member?

Ian Pulford B118 (B64-66)

16 Mar 2008

HI All, I would just like to say hi to all who knew me. I was a member of Friends Re-uninted where I managed to get in touch with Mark Owen (Sandringham - will try to get in touch again). It's amazing what memories this site has brought back to me, especially 'Grotty Nells' where we used to pop off to on exiats. Will register on this site shortly and hopefully get in touch with old friends. Hi to Andy Wyatt, I remember you well as well as David Lynch. Do you remember Martin Gaydon? That's it for my intro, will look in on this site regularly. Bye for now.

David Clayton (C78-81)

8 Mar 2008

Maureen, delighted to see your response. Sadly I don't have any photo's of that era. However, I do have my memories and Geilers rates very highly amongst them. I retired from the Army 31 years ago after 38 years service and settled down in a small village several miles outside Colchester. I've been married for 37 years, have one daughter and two grandchildren and they live a mere 400 yards from us. I have four brothers, one of whom - Alan - went to Windsor. Four of us joined the Army and one continues to serve. Thanks for responding;great to hear from you. Regards.

Rick Licence (C64-66)

Hello to anyone who remembers me from the later years at WBS. Very sorry to hear of Mr Kitchen`s passing, he was the epitome of the traditional housemaster and I am sure that all would agree that it was a pleasure to have known him either as a colleague or as a teacher and carer because that is what he did - cared! Marlborough house seemed to just tick along quite nicely thank you under his guidance. I will never forget his lecture to us all about the inventor of the modern flushing toilet (one Thomas Crapper!) in the day room one dinner time just before we lined up for dinner! Who was it who didn`t flush that bog! Some names seem to have disappeared from my radar, Tiny McD, Ian Mair, The Hamlets, Loz McGovern, Steve Brown, Ian Hepburn, The Gardners, Paul Boon, Marcus Ball, Teachers: Mr Moore, Martin, Stevens, Heap, Wheeler, Clarke(Cyprus `86) it`d be good to see some input from more of the guys and gals from the later years.

Keith Moralee (M77-81)

Does anyone from Balmoral in the early sixties remember the Matron Frau Kellermann, i was terrified of her! also our house mistress, Fraulein Teitz? what about Dick Jolliffe, now there was a name no one could forget!Hospital corners, room inspections,and what about the laundry? shirts came back like sheet steel and had to be pried open to get in them, heady days in the old school.

Ian Pulford (B64-66)

19 Mar 2008

Hi Ian and all the 60's lot, Ian I live in Royston Herts and have been a Windsor Soc member for a few years.I have been to several reunions notably the big one in Newbury.It was a fantastic event and I guess about 800 to 1000 people turned up.I went along with my two brothers James and David and we all met dozens of friends from both schools including Pia Ayres, Mo Rankine,Mo Petty,Nicky Wilson,Jan Page,Mike Sheard,Paul Sayers Don Pearson Ian Green,Geoff Hern and Mr Whylie.Trouble with mentioning names is you always miss off people...but I enjoyed my days at WBS and the comradeship.One year Marlborough House built a snow "fortress" on the field behind the chapel and the rest of the school attacked us Alamo like.We held out for a good long time but as we were out numbered 5 to 1 we eventually conceded and all retired to the dining hall for cocoa then into the basement for a well earned fag.Oh the good ole days..Only managed to kick the habit 5 years ago..cocoa that is! Hello also to Stuart Baines I remember you very well and recall that you were a great sportsman and a good mate of James...keep well everyone.love ralph xx

Ralph Bennett (M62-68)

19 Mar 2008

Good to read Ralph's messages, and the list of some of my old friends from the 60s! One thing which always strikes me when I explain to people what it was like being at boarding school - we always seemed to be eating. How did we have time for anything else in between meals, cocoa breaks, etc? Pam

ps best wishes to Chris - we were in the Chapel Choir together

Pamela Ross (StJ63-68)

20 Mar 2008

Yes I remember Frau Kellerman well. Fraulein Tietz I seem to remember married one of the housemasters - Des Lacklison. I met him in Rheindahlen in 1997 and he was still going strong and still teaching sailing. Dick Joliffe was the man in charge for my last couple of years. He took over from another teacher, whose name I can't remember although I can picture his face, who moved on to be Deputy Headmaster (I think). Apropos of nothing, I still have my shoe cleaning kit with my house number on it.

Larry Bawden (B61-64)

21 Mar 2008

Hi Julian Gatt I remember some of the hustle and bustle that went on at the top end of the corridor in Hillsborough. If my mind serves me correct after all these years wern't you responsible for leaving your bath running and flooding the teachers flat out downstairs. I think there was a rather attractive young woman in residence as I believe that not only did this happen once, you did it again to get another chance at mopping out her flat!

My name is Jennifer Field, I was then Tocknell, I came from King Alfred School Plon. I can remember when the forces of above decided that we would combine our schools and become Windsor Girls and Boy's. I think it was something to do with the handing back of King Alfred School Plon to the german authorities. I can remember loosing all the boy's and all of a sudden it was a mass of girls, seeing all the Maroon uniforms joining us that Autumn Term, us still in our Green... Many an argument was had, but would you believe by the time our school was ready, Windor Girls Hamm we were all one, including all the green uniforms had gone. The house we put in was Kensington. I remember it being the first one through the gate on the left, out house mistress was a Miss Linsdell and deputy was a Miss Geeve, I corresponded with both, but eventually lost contact. I celebrated my 61st birthday to-day, 23rd March, and I still can remember it all as if it was yesterday. I often look on your site, but never see any names that I can recall. Have you any other members who joined from Plon? Espacially who was in Fleming and would have been about 12. Maybe somebody will remember

Jennifer Field

24 Mar 2008

Pamela, you hit the nail on the head, many of my freinds do not understand my feelings about he years spent at Windsor, it is like the comraderie you develop within a military unit i guess, i have never forgotten my friends and yearn contact with them, i hated being at school but hated not being there,they were the best years of my life, good freinds, good times, reat teachers, great school, who could forget the cocoa and buns before lights out, fags in the cellar, stolen snogs at the formals, Balmoral girls were the cutest though!! Happy Easterto you from Australia, Concordia.

Ian Pulford (B64-66)

24 Mar 2008

Message for Alan Savage - it was lovely to see you the other week. Thank you so much for coming out of your way to let Lynda and I have your spare tickets for the Osmonds, it was really kind of you. We are looking forward to the concert and to seeing you again and we promise that your tribute costume will be ready in time.

Janice Lewis (M70-76)

24 Mar 2008

Hi Rick - thanks for your message it is funny how their are a few co-oincidences in our lives, I have been married for 37yrs to Trevor. We have three children 1 boy and 2 girls, the eldest being our son. Both girls live a 'stones throw away' from us, we have one grandson with another grandchild due in May, our son has just moved to Cairns with his partner which is about six hours away by plane we hope to get up there some time this year. Before we emigrated we lived at Claydon just outside Ipswich (I still follow Ipswich Town in soccer)which is not too far from Colchester. My father was posted to RAF Honington do you know it? we were posted there before when I was a lot younger!!! My mother's family come from Thetford so know this area very well and still have family their. I also have very happy memories of of 'Geilers' did you go to the 'disco's' if that is what they were, I can remember a 'Beatles' one where we all dressed in black. Also used to frequent the NAAFI is that what it was called? as I used to buy up all the single records especially Beatles, I could as I had this small record player. Can you give me more info about 'the Larners' as that name has being playing on my mind. My father was in the RAF for approximately 32yrs before we emigrated and that is where our association with 'the forces' ended and we started our 'new life' here in Australia. Is that enough hope I haven't bored you too much. I was last in UK in the yr 2000 wished I had known about the reunion. Keep in touch

Maureen Press (B64-67)

24 Mar 2008

Hi Pamela Ross don't remember you but my name was Mo Pulford B1 in my time at WGS, I am sure our path's crossed at some stage have seen lots of your messages so had to reply to your one about the food at school, I can also remember that I felt that I was always being fed and as I work at a 'low socio economic' school in South Australia it has been a 'beef' with me that the students here are not fed like we were at WGS. Have looked at some of your websites with photos of 'our times' and later and have really enjoyed them, thank goodness someone had a camera at that time.

Maureen Press (B64-67)

24 Mar 2008

Hi Mo, I just re-read my earlier missive and I did, of course, mean to type that I retired 3 years ago. Typing has never been one of my stronger attributes. I'm afraid I don't recall too much about the Larner's, apart form their father being RAF. I arrived in Geilers a matter of months prior to their moving away. I do recall though that it was Karen who introduced me to smoking, a habit,I hastily add,I gave up some 20 years ago. I'm sad to say Ipswich is a team I regularly go to watch, although this hasn't been a great season for them. I remain a Spurs man and have been since 1958. I do know Honington, and I also know Thetford very well as I use to own a house there which I use to let out to the American forces in the mid 80's. Great to hear from you again. Regards

Rick Licence (C64-66)

27 Mar 2008

I saw the message from Janice Lewis about my little brother Alan ( a devout Rainbow and Whitesnake fan)letting her have spare tickets for the Osmonds: My first question is this: ALAN , what are you doing with tickets for the Osmonds ( never mind SPARE ones) second question; Will you pop round to my house in the Tribute costume to cheer me up after just passing the big 5-0, I could do with a laugh!!

Dave Savage (C70-74)

Ian Pulford (B64-66)

29 Mar 2008

Hi to all Windsorites now living in Australia. It is good to see that the 60's mob are posting messages here by the dozens. I am the only one that I know of now living in Perth (Dianella) but would be great to find some more over here. Maybe we can organise a get together some time in the near future. It will have to fit in with my roster as I have just started a FIFO job in the Plbara and work a 2/1 roster. My sister, Jenny Taylor (now Benbow) is now living in the UK, he was in St James, and I remember going to a few dances there and having a great time.

Kim Taylor (B63-65)

29 Mar 2008

Hi Rick - good to hear from you again, it is 'unreal' that you owned a house in Thetford, when I was back in the UK I went back for a visit as I have still got Aunt's, Uncle's and cousins living there. My brother Ian and I spent a lot of time their visiting relatives when we were younger and before we emigrated to 'Oz'. Street's I remember were St Nicholas St (my mum lived there as a child and then her brother bought the house and lived there for many years) Nelson Cresc (my grandparents moved there) and Ickneild Way (granny flat for grandparents). I also had an Aunt who moved back there to retire and owned a unit on the corner of Market place near the The Red Lion pub and accross from the bingo hall. River walk and two mile bottom (we used to swim there) were other places we went too. Do you remember a Martin Old from 'Geilers' he contacted my brother as he remembered us. He lived at 1 Regent Strasse (near the gate entrance) and we lived a couple of blocks behind him.

Maureen Press (B64-67)

29 Mar 2008

Kim Taylor, i have been in contact with a former 'pleb', John Reilly now resident in Perth, wants contact with former plebs, as you can see it takes the sixties children to really get this web site PUMPING, after all we were responsible for the Beatles, the stones, The dave Clarke Five etc etc, we also were priveliged to influence the seventies, Pink Floyd( we are not worthy) and so many other great bands, i learnt to play the guitar at Balmoral, Tim Akehurst i think was the one who got me into it, what a great era it was, I remember palaying 'House of the Rising Sun' and still do when i need a lift, why is it that we were so much better than the folowing generations? talent i suppose, does any one remember 'Ringo'Roberts the math teacher, he was around the sane time as a famous murderer Harry Roberts, was he related i wonder? we thought so.Got a memory jogger the other day, remember the stabbing of Alan Quartermaine? that really put he cat among the pigeons, no exits for a while, well back to the magnificent Coonawarra Cabernet Sav, thinking about the old days and past glories!!

Ian Pulford (B64-66)

29 Mar 2008

Does anyone from Hr. Jones music performance in the sixties remember this:
Gaudeamus Igitur,
Juvenes dum sumus;
Post icundum juventutem,
Post molestam senectutem,
Nos habebit humus.

Translation:
Let us rejoice,
While we are young;
After our youth,
After a troublesome old age
The ground will hold us

This is the opening verse of Gaudeamus Igitur, it brings a tear to my eyes every time i hear it, all i can say is: "Vivat nostra societas".(Long live our fellowship). a tribute to a great teacher who did it with style( he also could do Sloop John B, versatile to say the least!!!

After WBS we moved to Ipswich, and like Maureen still follow the Tractor Boys, in fact one ex player lives here, Mich D'avry who used to be coach of the Perth Glory, I have been involved with them for 12 years. I still haven't joined the Society, as have been waiting for an application form. I remember learning to play drums at school, but dont remember who taught me, I think one of the students had a set. I remember a boy that we called 'Prof' and also remember Mr Jolliffe and Rev Fielding

Lets just put the record straight for my brother Dave,he is after all 50 and it's quite obvious that things are going wrong inside the old cranium at a rapid rate, I have not and never have had any tickets for the Osmonds. This was a nasty rumour spread about by Janice because turned down her offer (for the tickets) and couldnt get all of the candles to fit on her cake. Dave, get a grip man!

Ian, dont you fall for it too, I've answered your email, did you recieve it?
