Sarah Fisher is trying to get back in touch with Richard Barraclough, whom she knew in the 1960’s:
I came across ‘Richard Barraclough of Bournemouth’ when a letter of his was published in the Times yesterday. I’m sure it must be the person I knew!
It would be good to catch up with him!
Can anyone help?
A post submitted in a Bournemouth local history Facebook page shows an old prefect badge with bearers’ names inscribed on the reverse. Mike Fuller, the author of the post, is trying to reunite it:
This is a prefect’s badge from Bournemouth School. It is made of sterling silver and is engraved with the names of several ex-pupils on the reverse: N. Trayfort, A. Petty, K. Flintshire (46-47), J. Yeadon (54-55) and R. D. Seall (these are the names I can decipher). It is available to anyone who can convince me they are an ex-wearer or is a close relative.
The original post can be found in the Old Bournemouthians’ Association Facebook page.
Ian Wright, BS 1970-77, is trying to get back in touch with Nigel Gray. He writes:
I attended Bournemouth School from 1970-77 and can only say that it gave me a tremendous education and preparation for the rigours of life afterwards.
I am trying to trace one of my old classmates who I was last in contact with about ten years ago. He moved to Johannesburg in about 1988 and had worked as a brewer for some years but had a traumatic experience when he was burgled and was fortunate to survive. I have had no replies to emails and the phone number I had seemed to have changed so did not get any joy there either.
Ideally I would like someone to make polite enquiries at the address but don’t want to ask the police to do so. Do we happen to know of any old boys who live in Johannesburg who might be in a position to do the above. The chap concerned is Nigel Gray, born around December 1958. At school he had an address in Glenferness Avenue.
