BCS SCHOOL PICTURE 1944:
The 1944 school photo is attached above and my brother David and myself are included. He is in the third row from the top, with fair hair just to the left of Mrs Sinker with the spiky hat (on the front row) and I am in the second row from the top also with fair hair and spectacles almost above Canon Sinker the HM. Some of our contemporaries may recall that the school put on a performance of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta “Lolanthe” and Mrs Sinker sang the lead role. I have many memories of events in the Dining Hall, both during meals and also evening preparation, and also remember being taken out by school monitors and beaten with a cane for some small demeanour! The food must have been reasonable as I am still running and have completed the last four Bristol 10K runs, now aged 81. With best wishes, Mark.

I was at BCS from end of 1940 to end of 1944. I expect you have all the complete school photos but in case you don’t I could send you the one for 1944. I am attaching one shot of the school in that same year and have some others from the same time if you are interested. The building looks much nicer now with the white paint! Best wishes, Mark Wood-Robinson
