1955 And Some Rather Unusual Memories - a Memory of Frensham.
My parents wanted me to have a good upbringing and sent me to a private school where unfortunately the owners were tyrants. I was continually playing truant, so they then sent me to Pierrepont School in the autumn of 1955 where it was hoped I'd settle down. Alas, my memories of what went before played heavily upon my mind, yet again causing me to start running away. On more than one occasion I was caned by Major Parry for absconding, and eventually I suffered a complete nervous breakdown and was placed into hospital care for 7 months. Looking back I often wish that things had been different. I'd have loved to have been able to enjoy Pierrepont School as it was hoped that I would rather than what actually took place. No-one was to blame for any of this as everything was done with the very best intentions. I wonder if any old boys will remember me, if so then do please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
