The Prep School

The Old Cottonians website does not contain much on the Prep School except for one photo of the school in 1945. I am sending you two photos of the prep school buildings taken in 1945.I was a pupil there from 1943 to 1945 and feel that there must be some ex pupils around who would be interested. I myself are in the school photo ,as on the web site. Second row from the back and 10th from the right.

I am also sending a copy of the school song of those days, which was sung in Latin, although none of us knew what the words meant. This is from the Prep School prayer book which I still have, together with the “Cottonian” Victory edition, as well as the school cap and blazer badges.

With my parents I left India in 1949 and now live in New Zealand. I have written my memories of those school days, for my children and grand children , before my memory fades, so that those historic and changing times would not be forgotten.
