Greetings and all good wishes to former colleagues and pupils who may visit this marvellous website which enables us to keep in touch. At this time especially, we seek to renew friendships and make contact again with friends from the past. I have so many happy memories of WBS. They remain indelible! May 2012 see all our expectations fulfilled! Let freedom reign! 1 John 3. 1-3 .

Whew forty some odd years seem to have come and gone in a blink! Just read Ralph Whalebone's message. Still plugging away on the guitar, Ralph? We should be retired music professionals by now! LOL. Yep Mr. W. this site can keep you up all night reading and thinking about folks, great folks, great times great beginnings! The folk club, sports, movie night, bands, DANCES, Sweeny Todd, HMS Pinafore (OK yeah, the pubs and the Chip machine on the way back to school)! And of course top of the pyramid profs (little did we know then). Where else would we have seen Polanski's MacBeth for English class? - Thanks to Bismark and Demand I managed to find work in the history field. (Sorry Mr. Hern, Fib a who chi?) Cheers to all the folks who might remember me. Have heard from the Brindleys about many folks through the years. Sad to say I am sorry I didn't keep in touch with you all. Good health and prosperity to you and your families for the New Year!

Well there's a trio of names from the past....Roland Saddington, Alan Quartermaine and Robert Locke. As Bill said, I'm down in Van Dieman's Land (Tassie)and have been for the last 6 1/2 years. Almost 62 now. It was great to meet up with people at the Sydney reunion, sadly couldn't make the Adelaide one, maybe next time.

Hello Ian, good to know you are still out there. Didn't go to the last reunions but have been to a couple, so would be good to catch up at one of the next ones. Also saw Chris (Bowyer) had left messages. I have a picture somewhere of you two and John messing around in your dorm!Saw Bobby Hoffman a couple of years ago when he was here in England.I am still near Reading, although moved a couple of months back, but just a mile up the road. Katy now at secondary school, year 9.Often think of Hamm and Laarbruch. LoraineXX (McMillan)

The translation by John Derick Cole,is an artical from a German Website (Hammtv)I hope he will forgive me for pinching his post from 'The WBS&WGS group chat'facebook site to share with the Society.I'm sure everyone will want to wish Clive Hatton all the best.

John Derek Cole Translation: The "Windsor Boys School" will receive a plaque at the former site of Argonne Barracks. The plaque will be unvailed on Thursday (1/12/2012) and attached to the former Argonne Barracks.

The former Windsor student Clive Hatton had requested on behalf of a group of former pupils of the Windsor Boys and Girls School (Yes thats our Facebook Group) in the city government, whether it is possible to install a sign in Argonne Barracks, indicating that children of British soldiers school had gone there.

The school was established in November 1953 on the teaching environment. At times, here more than 650 male students were taught, their fathers were stationed throughout the country. In July 1983, the school use was abandoned. Blame google for mistakes ;)

Bow O'Barr's & Ralph Whalebone's postings have prompted another post from me - no Maths this time Christine! Bow - Fibonacci has been replaced in my affections by Euler - the greatest mathematician ever in my humble opinion who had his 300th birthday in 2007 (April 15th) but I digress. One memory of you Bow was your astonishment - on the D of E camp in Altenilpe that I had even heard of Elton John (all the rage at the time) and especially that knew some of his songs. What happened to big brother Tom - we really did have fun in his A level group. Please remember me to him even if he has no memories of me. Thanks for your comment Ralph - I hope we had some fun as well as learning some sums. It may not have been obvious to all at the time but I really enjoyed my time at Windsor - i stayed for 20 years!! Not many of us old staff contribute to the site but it's good to see John Fielding has not forgotten his bible. Have a great 2012 everybody - will that reunion come in 2013?

Bow O'Barr: I had a couple beers with John Dudley last summer and he has some good memories of you guys jamming in the Maths Block playing "Blue Suede Shoes" and the like.
