Hi George, i'm
pleased to say that i brow-beat my wife into liking my stuff when we
first got together, but i occassionally find the likes of the Bee Gees
and soppy love-song compilations have been left in the CD tray while
i've not been around to censor the situation, i'm not sure that my sound
system would know how to handle Engelbert though, All the best, Ken

I left in 1970
and Stuart Brindley was the chaplain. I last saw him at a Newbury reunion
- I think about 12 years ago.John Fielding, his predecessor, we still
keep in touch with.
Sorry to hear about
Brian Kingston. I remember playing bridge with him, and he had an Opel
car with an extraordinary (Well, it seemed like it then) dashboard!!
He and Mary went to Worksop, i think, after Hamm and we exchanged Christmas
cards for some years
I remember him as
a kind and generous man.

I am sorry to hear
of the death of Brian Kingston. He taught me 'A' Level Applied Maths
for two years. I was an appalling student, however I did manage to scrape
through, with his help. Mr Kingston was a very heavy smoker, in those
days, and I was cast as him in a "Prefects' Christmas Review"
Condolances to all
his family from a very grateful ex-student.

These short video
extracts may bring back memories, not least for teachers at Hamm. They
come from a 1965 recruitment film seeking teachers for army schools
worldwide (Hong Kong, Aden and Malta are highlighted). There are several
shots of WGS and WBS (including a quick glimpse of Rev John Fielding
in the background during a prize giving) in Film B. Delightful period
pieces. I wonder if any of the teachers who drop into the site remember
them!! HT to Barbara Simpson who found the links.

Walker (Chemistry) is also in the prize giving video clip

Many thanks for
the links to the Youtube clips on forces schools! I recognised Mr Wylie,
also Miss Evans - although whichever girl she was talking to had her
back to the camera, so not sure who that was. I also saw a friend of
mine in the final section, pupils talking about their future - Barbara,
not sure about her surname, but she was in my class, and in Caernarvon
House. Great fun!

I am sure this has
been asked previously, but I thought I'd ask anyway. Can anyone remember
"gaffers omelette" and or "gaffers pie" ? If so
would you like hazard a guess what they were and or contained or even

Max Penfold: It's
been a long time since you surfaced.Try running 'Bauernfrühstück'
through google and a translating site for several gaffers pie recipes.

Hi, would love to
catch up with any other girls from the school during Jan 1977 Yr 4?
and Jul 1981 end of Upper Sixth. I was a boarder for a few months then
a day pupil for the rest of the time. My Father was the Head Teacher
of the Primary School within the grounds and has a lot of memories of
the teaching staff at the School. Very friendly with Mr Dunn who was
responsible for all our great meals! Would love to find Jackie who was
my running partner during athletics and always beat me hands down at

Sorry - I had hoped
to attend the mini reunion in York on Saturday, but my daughter has
come home for the weekend, so I had to knock it on the head (hadn't
seen her since Christmas). I hope you had a good time?

Really enjoyed the mini reunion
at the Punchbowl pub in York on Saturday. The weather didn't put many
off, thankfully. It was good to see old friends again and make some
new ones. Memories, laughs and drinks all round. I would definitely
recommend attending one near you. As Robin said, they are monthly and
happening in different locations around the UK. Well worth having a
look on the Windsor Chat site to see where and when.
