    I remember them all well - just a little uncertain of the first name for Arderne. He came from South Africa.
    E H C Luckham was a master and prone to reporting on errant boys for misdemeanours such as smoking, etc., hence the rather unattractive nickname! He married a German girl pre-war, and was killed on 4th July 1943 when the troopship on which he was travelling was sunk by the Japanese.

    Henry Davidson had five brothers, and together with their father they made up a seven-a-side hockey team.
