Rest in peace Steve.

It is with great sadness that I have to let everyone know of the passing away of Steve Dipper, he attended WBS, Sandringham House, during the mid/late seventies. He was a most popular ex-WBS member. You will see from the Re-Union ad on this page he was very active in ensuring we all kept in touch. Our condolences and best wishes go to his family. I know from all the posts on facebook how popular this man is and I would just like to say my own personal farewell to Steve who has been a good friend to me in recent times when I have benefitted from his counsel. RIP Big Man!

On behalf of the Committee and members of the Windsor Society I would like to offer condolences to Steve Dipper's family. Although not at school with Steve I did meet him at a few reunions, a really nice guy who will definately be missed by us all.

Nice to see this website is still going strong! I guess if I could do it again I would have spent the whole of prep doing prep instead of gazing out of the window waiting for supper! Life turned out well for me, a few rain clouds here and there, but I am thankful for my lot! And hopefully there is more to come! Warm regards to you all!

Just to add my message of condolence to Dips'family & friends. His untimely death caused me to seek out this page, in order that i may express my grief and share memories of one hell of a nice guy.
Steve was the drummer, alongside Andy ranson and myself in that legendary (????) rock band of the mid 70's ASAONS.....he was also my Best Man when i got married in 1978. My army career & his international jet setting meant we lost touch for a long while but the internet re-united us, this century, and it was is if we'd never been apart. We never did get to share that pint (or gallon) of ale, having to settle for his beloved Costa coffee due to his ill health, but each time i indulge i'll remember him for the quality guy he truly was. RIP Marra, you truly were one in a Billion.

My dad was stationed in Osnabruck & I attended Windsor Girls school from '68 if my memory serves me right. I remember behind Sandringham block being the 1st block on the left as you came through the gates. There was a swimming pool behind the block. I remember the school so well and I have fond memories of my stay. I had a number of friends and we all had nick names, I was Yogi, this is where my memory is not so good as I can only remember Toots Bull :( I did pay a visit before I left Germany but the school was full of refugees?? I only got as far as the tennis courts when I had to leave, too emotional. I have lost all my photo's but can still 'see' the school xxxx

Heard the news about Dips, such a sad day. Dips and I had a long chat at the Milton Keynes renunion, about our time at WBS, about CAt breath , me breaking the ice, the Dingers, and a general feeling of belonging thet Hamm gave us. I knew he had heart problems, he was quick to point this out as the reason he couldn't have a beer! But the news that he had passed was a shock, so sad, but also met with a wry smile regarding our chat at MK. So long buddy, it's been a pleasure.

Hi I wonder if anyone remembers me and my sister Janice Grant, don't remember a lot apart from our head of house was Suesan Rae and head girl of school was Sue Griffiths, I think the head mistress at that time was Miss Evans. My sister played in a school production of the great plague of London but cannot remember the name of the play. It would be great to hear from anyone who was around at that time
