I hope you're having a nice day. A recently unearthed slide might be of interest to you as it depicts my mate VCJ Pilcher with part of the butterfly/moth collection,which I'm fairly sure used to be in the library,and was large and extensive and housed in a proper lepidopterists cabinet. So what happened to that then? Viv is wearing the legendary light blue aertex short sleeve number. I wonder if it still fits him. I think he lives Canterbury way,so over to you .
Regards.. Rod

This came from Rod Pittam, his mate Vivian Charles John Pilcher is holding the butterfly case. He (Pilcher) is living in Switzerland now

Hi David-Michael,
OK you can have a laugh at my expence or is it expense. Blame the teachers if you can not spell.
I suppose that it is not really not that bad. You might like to share this with the others on the web site.

Publish and be damned.

I started when I was 7 and left at 13. Yes I was a boarder.
I have been thinking about my time there since you lot resurrected the topic. I have written some anecdotal notes about the place. There were some very funny things happen. At some time when I get a bit of time to breath, as I am working flat out at the Minute, I shall write them out. I must say though it was not the happiest time of my life all in all.
Hope to see you at the next do.
