I remember Mr Judson (Juddie). He had a little dog which was looked after by Miss Rigby, the Bursar or Miss Hunt her assistant. He taught maths but like many retired teachers did what he could. Many may remember Dickie Trueblood. Usually filled in for RE. Mostly told us about his WW1 army life ,India etc. Most memorably he described how in WW1 the school was used as a hospital. He described how he joined up, was sent to France ,got wounded and ended up in a hospital bed in his old classroom! B  W Tom H. School Captain 60-61.
