At least I can be grateful to those who have made direct contact.Current, collated information suggests that the government in 1963 selected twenty five top schools across the UK for the possible excavation of security bunkers.Dr Simpson was apparently elated to discover Harrow School had not been chosen.
Name: Laurence Lando Email: square Years_at_school: 1957 -Date: Time: It is with much regret that I have learnt of the passing of Mr David Baker. Whilst at school, David was a good friend to me, when I needed the presence of a 'father figure'. Name: Michael Schwartz Email: Years_at_school: 1965- 1972Date: Time: Pete - I note your comment that an obituary for Fred Bilson appeared in The Guardian. Name: Peter Ward Email: peter.Years_at_school: 1958 - 1963Date: Time: Interested in Ted Troll's comments.
He was in the Department (Golland, Lafferty, Bilson) that proved more than adequate, indeed, inspirational, to the best Arts Sixth Form (Perkins, Anderson, Portillo etc) in the entire school history.
The appreciation of humour was never a feature of Dr Simpson's regime and must have rubbed off on his products.
Not so sure about his Simpson's Academy for Dull Folks. Name: Chris Atkinson Email: christopherdotatkinson43atntlworlddotcom Years_at_school: 19 - 19Date: Time: Perhaps the first step is to establish which Pavilion Fund is to be investigated.
Laughter, even the merest snigger, will not be permitted at meetings with perpetrators sent immediately into purgatory.
Those wishing to join the SS must have been through the rigours of Simpson's Academy for Dull Folks in which youthful liveliness was systematically squeezed out, leaving dull, grumpy, sensible inmates mature ahead of their time.Name: Tom Stanning Email: tandg.Years_at_school: 1963 - 1970Date: Time: I had no idea I would create such curious responses when I made my first contact with your website.One respondent is grumpy and loses the plot whilst another seems to think I am the Invisible Man.Such people will be expected to contribute regular items to the HCS guestbook of no more than two lines in length. I left a pair of PE plimsolls in the changing room during my last year at school (1967.)Has anyone seen them or know of their current whereabouts? Does anyone recall Fruity Ferguson who consumed navel oranges under the desk in Ubi Lane's Latin lesson? Is this the same Fruity who travelled to school on the 158 bus from South Harrow?Riveting stuff, indeed, and worthy of this infinitely fascinating guestbook.If so, could you guarantee to both question and answer with 100% commitment and integrity?
