Peter Symonds mentioned on BAFTA awards ceremony.

Well nearly.
Billy Connelly was the subject of a special TV BAFTA programme last night. Jack Dee contributed to the fun by telling how he once met Billy at some function or other and the next day got suspended from school by telling one of his jokes to the headmaster's wife.

PSSW Hockey Team 1949/50

Hi All !!!

As I mentioned in a message to Jim Wishart about Cadet Camp, I was a 'Volunteer' for the 'Resurrected' School Hockey Team ... I say 'resurrected', because it is my belief that there was a Hockey Team in earlier years ... before WWII I think ...

Question ... does anyone have any photos of the 'resurrected' team of the 1949/50 era ??? ... a few names I can remember ... Pete Cox, 'Podge' Wheatley, Phil Lovegrove ... sorry to the others I can't remember ...

Hopefully, someone can come up with something ... I am sure someone must have clicked a shutter or two !!!

Doc Freeman's weekly talks

Here in the UK there is a short TV series on at present called 'The Theory of Everything' (8pm on Channel 4, Sunday nights). Last week they talked about Einstein and the Relativity Theory.  It reminded me that Doc brought the subject up in his talks and spoke with reverence of the mathematics involved. I got the impression that he had worked through it himself and was trying to encourage us to do the same!  I must admit I never got round to it.  The programme is worth watching though.
However I am of the school that believes that it is impossible to "discover everything". How do you answer the question "why is there something rather than nothing" in a scientific way?  You don't have to answer that question!!

'unlikely' members

Recently we have had a couple of instances of what I call 'unlikely' members joining. They have no connection with the school and join mainly for some commercial or other maybe suspect reason. I remove them as soon as I find out but the first message they write gets sent out to all members. I like to be as liberal as I can in running this list and will continue to allow joining without vetting but if anyone feels
that I should change the policy, let me know and we can think about it.

School Band 1948

oThe chap on the far right on the front row is my brother David Cound
 
 I am John Cound 1951-1953 . We moved up to Loughborough in 1953 so I had to leave. We lived at 52 Hatherley Road, nice and close to school. I remember one evening I was practicing football on the playing fields opposite my house which we got to through the allotments opposite Cooksie,s house, when Imet up with one of the Harrison brothers who was prbably 4 or 5 years older than me. He challenged me to try to score a goal from the penalty spot with him in goal. I was a very keen footballer at the time,however the upshot was that I placed right in the corner of the net! Strangly I was alittle embarrassed as he was one of my heros at the time. Does anyone remember Charlie Wayman ,Saints inside right and very prolific goal scorer at the time?
