I posted a little back in August last year but have had no replies. Not to worry, I still like to keep reading the posts and hope one day someone out there remembers me.

Nice to know other than myself knowing me there is someone else out there that remembers me. Thanks Paul.
Question for you Paul. Did you ever work in Malta? The reason I ask is I was in Malta for some years and there was a guy named Paul Roper there who I new fairly well.Could be you and could be that we both did not realize we went to the same boarding school.

Hi there. Trevor Cardy here.I have monitored this site for many years and have only just drummed the courage to add an input - so sad. I was at WBS from Sept 1968 to July 1971, Caenarvon and I had many friends: some I have seen on this site - Vince Fletcher, Chris Hilton and many others from different years but not so Jan & Sue Excelby, Jan & Richard Grimes,Sabrina Lipscombe and Zez Keast - to mention a few. I would also like to know the what happened to the members of the School POP Groups, Jacks Union, Dergry Grommet and others which I taped at various house parties etc. I still have the original tapes although sadly one or two are now damaged. Morover, I have to report that Mick Wood died some years ago aged 48, a motor cycle- not his fault. I also understand that living in Norfolk, I am close to some of my WBS teachers Mike Capey and Brian Burke. Would like to get in contact with anybody the remembers me.

Visited this site a few years ago when prompted by a question from one of the grandchildren about the schools I attended. I am now wondering,where my teachers,those I can remember anyway, pursued their career after I left in summer 1957? John Howard, Noel Kelly, Harry Cutler,David Benfield, Miss Ellis, Miss Butterworth and Mr Houston. Look forward to any update.

Hi Peter, I have never been to Malta, that Paul Roper was not me, there are a few of us around.

I'm trying to put a name to a face for Trevor Cardy - with a bit of difficulty (I'm 78 now!)But good that he remembers Caernarvon. I think in his contribution to this site he meant Brian Birkby. I still see him regularly - he lives in Giggleswick in the Yorkshire Dales. He might not remember Bill Greer, his predecessor as housemaster of Caernarvon - we go on narrowboat holidays together- play golf , and whilst I support Accrington Stanley, he supports Shrewsbury Town. The next vital match- in Shrewsbury is on August 19th. We shall be there!! We all have such fond memories of Windsor Boys School - and often we talk of them We still keep in close touch too with David and Judith Ross: he was Head of P.E.in your time. Best wishes

Many thanks for clearing that up for me Paul. I now live in New Zealand.
I must admit I do not remember you, having said that at 64 my memory is not what it use to be. I can say though what memories I do have of the old school or all very good and I enjoyed my stay there. Keep well Peter.

lovely to see all the messages,
Really think that all of you guys need to sign up to FB!

Scanned this site for a number of years always wondered what happened to Caernarvon pupils from late 60's 70's era. After seeing the last couple Mr Capey and I think I remember Trevor. A few names that come to mind Mike Tompkins, Tez Holbrook, Dave Radcliffe, Ron Quirk to name but a few. All must be close to collecting pensions. I have over the years come across a few old boys. Played rugby against Tim Buckley on a number of occasions but lost touch as father time took it's toll. Saw Brian Birkby a couple of years ago. Giggleswick. Always wondered what happened to some of our colonial colleagues Tom O'Barr, Bailey Munday

Dai Newman (C66-71)

Thanks, Dai, for your message. I know Brian Birkby would like to be in touch with Mike Tompkins. And Brian remembers Trevor Cardy well.Incidentally Trevor said he lived in Norfolk. Where? I'm in Long Stratton, just south of Norwich. Where is he?

Mike Capey (C63-70)

To Mike Capey - Please send my best wishes to David Ross and Bill Greer. I remember them both well. David helped me along the road with my Basketball refereeing career and appointed me captain of both the football and cricket teams.

Hiello Howard Morrison and Patrick Impey. Just found this website and it has brought back so many good memories- perhaps rose tinted. I remember "squeaks" and John Hollins who were I'd our dorm 16a in Sandringham. Am now retired and living in Torbay in Devon. Is the George Squires who died about two years ago our old dorm mate?

A big hello to David Ross, one of my favorite PE teachers ever!
Hope you and family are well.

Just saw the name 'Bailey Munday' pop up ! Bailey, you and I shared some classes at WBS and I recall you were Bailey Munday 111 (the third) in those days. Like many, I recall only a few names - just being at the school for a little over two years will do that ! But, I had a great time and would have loved being there longer.

Hello Alan, you must have a better memory than me,did we have dorm numbers? It's amazing how many people you know pop up on this site if you drop in now and again to check

Patrick Impey (S62-64)

25 July 2014

Hi G McPate, I sure we shared a dorm in Sandringham in 57 .Its nice to know you are still around, and one of the Originals. I can confirm that I have visited Miss Ellis in recent times and that she is a very Live Wire! I must go and see her again. My memories of our shared existence, together with Mike Healey, who I had a brief contact with about four years ago,are still very fresh in my mind, and remain a true highlite to my time at Windsor.My use of this machine, and my spelling,haven't improved over time Forgive!!! Best wishes to everyone.

Good to see 'us oldies' still posting. Mike Capey you never let on about Accrington Stanley whilst you were at WBS. The HOD English Maurice Hallworth when I arrived in 1960 also supported them which must make a supporters club of two. Do you remember that trip to Berlin on the pretext of liaising with Gatow School? Don't think that we got much out of it apart from a weekend in Berlin. Bailey Munday and Dai Newman I remember well - had a great email from Tom McPartland recently - the lanky Yank he called himself. Still in two minds about Facebook although ex-pupils - not only WBS - nag me to join. Must be my age which makes me hesitate. Thanks again Bill for keeping this site going. I regularly check it out but do not post as often as I should as I always doubt that what I post will interest anybody.

Mr. Hallworth, now that's a teacher I remember. He came out with the expression "He's pushing up daisies" when I asked if HG Wells was still alive. The form collapsed laughing and that was the end of the constructive part of the lesson. Was it Mr. Hallworth who also kept us entertained by playing jazz trumpet when we juniors were trying to sleep after lights out?

Malcolm Graham (E60-65)

Yes Malcolm. The very same Mr Hallworth.. He returned to UK and then Germany called again and I believe that he bought and ran a Language school in Ulm. After that I don't know. Maybe somebody else does. He was one of the members of the staff combo which played a social events in the teachers' mess. Great memories!

Geoff Hern (M60-80)

Thanks Geoff, I didn't realize that there was actually a staff combo in existence but I suppose I should have done knowing that the musical talent was around. I suppose Boff Barnes played guitar but who were the other members? I've also noticed Mr. Ross being mentioned. He was one of the good guys. He allowed us noisy beat group boys to use one of the store rooms in the gym to practise our Shadows, Beatles, Chuck Berry and Rolling Stones so so's we didn't disturb the others. It was his idea with no prompting from us. Dave Naylor may remember , too.
