Schools 1950 - 1967


This photos is probably of 'Kingcups' with Herry squinting in the front row. Will Martin is on his right and Anthony Gilbert-Harris on his left. Those standing include Penelope Martin, Sue Howard, Elspeth Martin, Penny Jagger, Vicky Hulbert and Vinny Archdall.

While at Danegate, Herry went to a nursery school at Rotherfield for a term before the family moved to Hampshire. He then joined 'Miss Etheridge's' above the stables at Firhill House, Droxford - (then the home of the Hulberts) - where Will Martin and he were the only boys. Annie Ommanney was another pupil though eight months older than Herry. Thereafter Herry went to Miss King's (known as 'Kingcups'), whose schoolroom moved around from her house in the middle of Droxford and then up to The Grange - with a term at Carr House in Soberton, where Will Martin's parents lived.

Herry's prep school was St Ronan's at Hawkhurst in Kent (following Fuff and to be followed by Piers) from September 1953 and thereafter he went to Winchester from September 1958.

After Winchester, Herry read law at Southampton University.

Fuff was at Charterhouse, then Cirencester. Piers went to Stowe before studying medicine at The London Hospital. While studying, he shared the flat at Shouldham St with Herry but moved out when he got his first job in Poole.
