RGS High Wycombe:  Uplyme Boarders

Although not all these photos are from the era for which this website usually represents, Peter Archer (1958-62) is doing great work in driving the efforts to reunite former Uplyme boarders. I am very happy to host these photos on this website (AJH April 2013)

Note for Tyler's Wood boarders:- Take a look at Michael Claridge's evocative look at life there in the fifties.

Uplyme Boarders Reunion 2013

Largely due to the efforts of Peter Archer, there was a good turnout of ex boarders at this years OB's event. John Saunders was on hand to take this photo and Peter did the leg work in providing the names. Click here to view the photo.

The photos on the right and below were supplied by Peter Archer (1958-62) who writes:-

I wonder if the attached photograph might be considered a suitable addition to your collection. It was taken in 1951 by Reg Howard and sent to me by Bob Mitchell to whom I am very grateful.

We have some doubts about a couple of the names but the majority are accurate:

Back Row: Richard Howard-Jones/David Oliver??/Roy Humphries/Peter Agar/Geoffrey Baker/ Peter Reader/David Warner/Alan Sallows/Robert Mitchell/Peter Thatcher

Middle: Reginald Robey/Tony Harcourt/Nessie McIntyre(Matron)/Mervyn Davies/Iris Davies/Ian Waters/Eric Hall/Ian McCreery

Bottom: John Freeth/David Smethurst/Brian Whiting/David Godley/Bill North

The photograph will be subject to discussion at the Annual Dinner on 8th September 2012 but, regretably, only one person in the picture will be with us on that night - Richard Howard-Jones.

The photos on left  feature Peter King (56-62) and Nick Avery (58-62) - and the pictures were taken 50 years apart!
