Roger Chynoweth (CHSB 1955 -1962)

I believe the dates of these two photographs to be correct but I am not 100 per cent sure. They could be a year later in each case. The names are written in ink on the form photograph, so if they are not too clear, I will try to summarise below: (from left) Back row: Chris Lawrence, Keith Deeks, Rodney Castleden …

Hugh Allman (CHSB 1937-1945)

I was borne on 10 August 1927 at the Post Office Stores, Birdham. In September 1937 I started CHSB in Form Alpha with endless arithmetic under Mr Holland. I was in Form 2B when the War started. The younger male teachers were called-up for military service and were replaced by older men or even a lady. Frequent trips to the air-raid shelters …

Jack P Tupper (CHSB 1949-1956)

1. With a knowledge of National Service I joined the RNVR in 1955 and 1956 while still at school. 2. Served two weeks training in both of those years. 3. This is why I do not appear on the High School for Boys Prefects photograph for 1956 because I was away. 4. Head boy of the school 1956. 5. Somewhat …

John Davidson (CHSB 1958-1964)

Miss Lewis did not teach me much English! Anyway here goes. I passed my 11+ in 1958 and started at School in September. I was never a high flyer educationally but the school taught me enough to give me good long-term employment with West Sussex County Council from when I left to retirement in 2005. I have many good memories …

Chris Moorey (CHSB 1960-1967)

How do you set about summarising fifty-odd years of life? I have had a bit of practice, starting with the notorious 6th form magazine which included attempts to write one-line plot descriptions of several great works of literature. Then, in one of my books I attempted to sum up 1,700 years of theological dispute in a paragraph, so what the …

Michael Gallafent (CHSB 1943-1951)

Mike Gallafent entered the Royal Air Force on leaving the School and trained as a pilot, joining No.16 Squadron in June 1953, flying De Havilland Vampire and Venom fighters based at Celle in Germany.  On completion of that tour, he was posted to Pembrey in South Wales as an instructor for fighter conversion. This was followed by a ground tour …

Ralph Lane ( CHSB 1959-1967)

Not having been in tune with the sporty ethos of the school, and not having had a “career” worthy of such a grand title, I wonder if I have had a life at all in the CHSB sense. Life is a philosophical journey. Some guys seem to manage theirs side-by-side with career and family, but for me, the philosophical journey …
