I think "Junior" member refers to the number of posts people have made, I believe it's quite common to do this on conferences. I tried to contact Mr "Fruit" Gibson not so long ago for some research we were doing, and I also looked for him on 192.com, but there was no trace. Re Barton Hart, we have been contacted by an organist at Loughborough who was taught by BH and knew him very well. There will be an article on this research later, hopefully before the New Year.

After my time I'm afraid but in respect of the music master, his name was Mr Barton-Hart (double barelled name and the only master with a car at that time). He did encourage the more musically inclined pupil, albeit calling the rest of us "Donks"; shorthand for donkeys we supposed. He composed the music for the school song (altogther now "Mundella school for ever etc.") but I gather that it has been knocked down. Still the spirit survives.

In passing, does anyone know if Fruit Gibson is still with us? And can anyone explain why I am classed as a Junior Member, not that at 86 I mind very much.

I’ve just received the request copied below, and wondered if you could help, if you remember him.

Thanks, Margo (Webmistress!)

<<I am currently in the process of writing a biography of my dad Roy Skelton’s life, Dad was an actor who most famously gave voices to the Daleks and Zippy and George of TV’s Rainbow.

He attended Mundella Grammar School – it must have been during the war years – 1942/3 to 1946/7, and I would love to get in touch with anyone who might have been there at the same time and remembers him, or even might have a class photograph. Be lovely to include some detail of his school years. He often talked of a teacher called Barton Heart who encouraged his piano playing in assemblies.

Thanks very much for taking the time to read this.

Kind regards

Eliza Skelton.
