Blimey, Clive Pappadakis, I knew him well! Clive and I were in Marlborough under (during!) the Scoff days. Clive it'd be good to get in contact. Just off to Lisbon for seven days working with Xhockware, look it up, it's the future of retailing.

Wishing everybody happiness and success in all you do in 2016

There seems to be a marked lack of Edinburgh pupils on here are we all computer illiterate.My sister attended the girls school for a term and I the boys for most of a year until my father was posted back to the UK which was a shame as I was just getting used to being away from home. It did serve me well though as I joined the Australian Army in 1971 and military life is a bit like boarding school with sanctioned vandalism thrown in. I spent 0ver 40 years as an Australian Infantryman and I have never forgotten my time at Hamm.
Name I remember are Martin Fry, Jon Kell, Blenkinsop, Clive Burstall,Al Quartermaine,but to name a few. Ah sings "My school,my school" echoes of Ripping Yarns, the German matron and Peg Leg....memories.

WOW! In the 1970's , I thought that 'Peg Leg' was the 'Revenant' who haunted the upper levels of WGS Marlborough and Sandringham boarding houses only ! He must have commuted nightly to haunt the WBS site as well.

I thought Peg Leg existed in ALL the boarding houses of WGS and I remember some of the girls frightening themselves half to death with tales related to Peg Leg!

Peg Leg was real.
I saw eight of them in Edinburgh House WBS during the night of Halloween 1961.
I was told there was a ninth in the wardrobe in the bad lads dormitory too.

Oh, Malcolm Graham ! Sounds like 'Peg Leg' was not the only legless one during that Halloween ! NINE 'Peg Legs' is definitely one over the eight!

Who? Me? I was only just 11 years old. Might have been the Coca-Cola lollies from the shop over the road though......

Apart from me are there any of us "originals" still out there?

Geoff - on facebook (WBS and WGS chatgroup) - Ray Angel was at WBS in 1953 - there are possibly more out there - it's just reaching them that is the problem! I know that there are many of my generation who went to various Windsor Society reunions, most of them don't appear on facebook. Not sure if that's an age thing, or that they have better things to do with their lives than go on t'internet ;-)

Hi, my family were stationed at RAF Gatow in West Berlin so i was one of the Windsor Girls, who traveled the long train journey through East Germany.I shared a room in Hillsborough with Sally Musson and was good friends with Sandra Nolan and Davina ( cant remember last name).Does anyone else remember that journey or me?
