Hi all
I was a pupil at Royal Wanstead late 50's and 60's. I was a class 2 marksman on the firing range and held a commodation and record for being one of the fastest on the assault course. I remember things like the sailing club, the smoking bush where some of us use to hide to have a fag, sneaking across the traffic lights to buy a packet of cigarettes in the little shop in front on the front gates by the traffic lights. Standing on parade square which seemed like hours at the time. I remember the big organ in the chapel. I was confirmed in the chapel in 1964. Lots of lovely memories of people like Steptoe and Cavs and the rest of the guys. Who remembers doing prep for 2 hours a night.
Best Regards
Bryan Barns

PS I certainly remember the headmaster Mr. Lavender. I believe I did receive the cane from him once or twice.

Roger Mew |
I was at RWS 1946-53 when I left aged 11 from the Juniors (East Dorm). Last Monday 12 December I read one of the lessons at the Annual Carol Service in the Chapel which was strange because 64 years earlier in December 1952 I read the lesson at the RWS Carol Service aged 10 and stood on the same spot. Afterwards a lady named Carole Challingsworth approached me to ask if I remembered her husband Charles who has passed away. I did not as she told me he joined RWS straight into the seniors in 1951 aged 11 or 12. Anyone remember him? Best wishes to all- Roger

Most of this seems to postdate me. I was incarcerated between '50and '54. Couldn't wait to get out.

Also remember an earlier Tory fete attended by Winston Churchill who also presented prizes at Speech Day

Remember 7/7

My first ever RWS reunion was in 2005 which was a couple days after 7/7. Despite security concerns the school reunion went ahead. It was a great success. The 7/7 consequences were not fully known at the time.

On my way back home via the Eurostar train. People were concerned about untended luggage - even scanned luggage in the old Waterloo terminal, where a woman mistook me for her dentist.
