Snippets of memories from Sam Ashton (SH 47-53), following the recent production of Whole School Photographs on the website:

“The 1948 school photo is a revelation....... I truly must make an effort to identify for you some of the characters. I’m in there with my two buddies: Kjell Kolflaath (F 47-50) and Ronnie Barr (G 47-52), in that order - extreme right, front row. We were in Peter McNamara’s patrol in the scouts and went together on epic scouting adventures including a night out under the stars in a field in Ennerdale as part of a "First class Journey" to obtain a badge. This was during a week’s camp at Waterside Farm, Loweswater at the end of the summer term 1948, under the leadership of the wonderfully eccentric “Happy Harry” Rendell.
Those were the days.”
