House Name Change From Crusaders To Williams

A Memory of Bisley

I was at Bisley from autumn of 1955 at age 13 & left in the summer of 1958 My House No. was 262. A few mates whose names I remember 'Ned' Kelly, John Clark (from Southend) 'Granny' Green, Roy Potts & Angus (from Brighton).
Plus an old 'Bisley' boy, known as Pot Farrow (stuck in my memory) as he visited at weekends to play table tennis with the pupils. He was also very popular as he brought loads of sweets etc!
I met up by chance with 'Ned' Kelly in the 1970's. He had just come out of the Army. He mentioned (as I was a film actor at the time) about Barry Evans being more successful than I then! Anyone out there who remembers me, I just missed out on the maths prize (class 4 T&s) for year 1958 - due to cut backs, Damn!
