Jeremy Whitehead

House: Clive
Years: 1951-1962

Memories of my days at school:
Most of them are scurrilous or else concern being beaten for smoking but I have to say that I enjoyed my time at the school, particularly the final two years as a prefect, in which rank one was allowed to smoke of course, and the danger of being thrashed was removed.

I can recall attending the first assembly of a new term and listening to the headmaster, Fletcher, lecturing us on appalling behaviour on the school train to Uganda at the end of the previous term. He was unwise enough to describe one particular event when a group of us had set upon a St Mary's boy and hung him out of the train window by his feet, whereupon the whole school erupted in a great gale of laughter bringing the lecture to an end as he was unable to prevent himself joining in the laughter.

Since leaving school:
Merchant Navy Officer until 1978 and then worked in personnel and marine insurance dept ashore.

Retired in 1997 and living in Reading, England.
