Comments


We'd especially love to hear from you if you know something about this film
or the people or places in it.




On 29 November 2018, John Parker (HCS 1959 - 1966) S/Sgt i/c Signals said:
From a copy of "Cadet" magazine, the annual publication of the Harrow County School Combined Cadet Force, this film can be dated precisely to 14 May 1964. The Inspecting Officer was Air Commodore J B Coward. I can supply more details if desired.
On 29 November 2018, John Parker (HCS 1959 - 1966) S/Sgt i/c Signals said:
To be more accurate it will have been an Annual Inspection and Review not a Field Day. Field Days involved practical exercises in training areas, not in the school grounds.

There are many well-known faces in this sequence including Dr A R Simpson (Headmaster), Mr W Duke (Deputy Headmaster) and Major M Venn. It would need to be able to examine frame by frame to identify all the key personnel.
On 23 November 2018, John Allen (HCS 1958-1966) said:
Harrow County Grammar School for Boys - to be more exact!
Almost certainly early 60's - 62 or 63?
I'm in the RAF-CCF Precision (?) Drill Squad, and a couple of friends (we're still in touch and still talking!!) are in the Pipe & Drum Band.
On 23 April 2018, Dave Buckley (HCS 1953-1961) said:
The photos appear to be taken from a film abut a Combined Cadet Force field day, probably late 1950s. Definitely Harrow County School as the flats in the back of two of the shots are on the corner of Gayton Road and Kenton Road. The films was probably shot by the late Major Hush Skillen, who was a Modern Languages master at the school, until his retirement in 1975.

Between about 1958 and 1969, Hugh produced three hours of film material covering many school events and functions. These films (they were made into eight titles) 'disappeared' after Hugh retired, but in 2006 all the material was handed to the then Old Gaytonian's Association Archivist. I arranged with an ex-colleague who lived in Ruislip to use a viewing maching he owned and one Sunday morning we went along and ran the films. Considering that they hadn't seen the light of day for over thirty years, the picture and sound quality had held up very well. The films were later copied to a digital format and sent to me for checking and 'tidying up'. Afterwards, DVDs were made for sale by the now (defunct) OGA.
