Martin Langley

Nickname: Mart
House: Junior/Intermediate/Nicholson
Years: 1956-1961

Fond memories of the shopping lorry, rabble calls (first on the receiving end then later, giving them), Diaz the cobbler, playing bok-bok in Nich house quad. Col. Loftus having a hard time with my Suth Efrican accent in Form 1 latin, trades (rabble, this toast is hard !!!).

Our teachers, PF "Flakey" Fletcher, "Link" Seldon, "Whiskers" Watson, "Amoeba" Walker, "Pussy" Minette, "Old Man" Horley, "Pansy" Potter, Bertie Lockhart, Johnnie Riddel, Bill Wright, "Samaki" Salmon & and all the other wonderful masters, characters all, who gave us such a great start in life.

House dances with the girls from the Boma, etc., illegal visits to "the valley" and getting caught once by Flakey Jake himself. CCF camp with 303’s, bren guns, orange smoke, thunderflashes and cold showers at o’dark thirty. The School being used by white refugees from the Congo in 1960. Coming back from away rugby matches in the lorry singing "The Wild West Show" and other ditties. Outward bound at Loitokitok etc, etc.

Graduated in aero engineering from Salford Uni, emigrated to Oz ("ten pound pom") in 1969 where I was with Qantas in Sydney, then on to Amman, Jordan for 13 years. Been in Houston, Texas, since 1990 working for Continental Airlines, and about ready to retire, probably in Oz.
