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.It had formerly been a school building moved to HCS from a site in Alperton.By the end of this period it had become unsuitable for further use, and there is reference to a sum of GBP700 required to address the various repairs needed; the then Headmaster had accepted responsibility for finding this money. In the event the Group did not get final financial approval for its present HQ until 1971 (and even then arsonists tried to burn it down before the building was complete). Well my own (totally serious of course) suggestion is that it was probably used to purchase commercial quantities of Jammie Dodgers and Wagon Wheels for use in the tuck shop at the various Troop camps.Name: Chris Esmond Email: chrisesmond Years_at_school: 59-66Date: Time: Pete Fowler, your proven investigative skills make you eminently qualified to lead the ' What Happened to the Pavilion Fund? However, as a supporter of Henry Wyatt you yourself are, inevitably, I'm afraid, a prime suspect, which necessarily presents a rather tricky situation, a 'conflict of interests', as the saying goes: Would you be prepared to interview yourself?If so, could you guarantee to both question and answer with 100% commitment and integrity?As to Esmond's notion of only sensible people enquiring into the Pavilion Fund mystery, this is a thoroughly silly idea.
Name: Chris Esmond Email: chrisesmond Years_at_school: 59-66Date: Time: Your last contribution, Pete, where you confess to having ignored "so sensible advice", is deeply disappointing and as a result I regret to inform you that you will no longer be considered to lead the investigation into the missing Pavilion Fund monies as such a responsibility demands an impeccably sensible person (especially where investigating himself is involved).
One respondent is grumpy and loses the plot whilst another seems to think I am the Invisible Man.
School photos were taken early in the new school year.
I can confirm that this was an on-going tradition when I joined the Group in 1948.
