Framlingham in War Time
Following the original story in mid August 2004 below (see "read more") John Waddell (R39-46) received many recollections of the College "at war". He has plenty of contemporary team photographs but he is still looking for more personal photos from the war years.

In a separate initiative to the book commissioned by AROPS (Association of Representatives of Old Pupils Societies), the Society is planning to publish this material sometime next year.

If you have any suitable photos please contact John at:
Snape House, Snape, Suffolk, IP17 1QW; tel: 01728 688613
e-mail:waddell@house-snape.demon.co.uk John Waddell (R39-46) has been asked by the Society to put together a memoir of what it was like at Framlingham during the war. John would be very interested to have , preferably by e-mail, any anecdotes, memories of events specific to Fram (Of course the food was not very good; but that was true of all schools at the time). In particular, since it was the greatest disruption of our wartime schooling, John would be very pleased to hear from anyone who was at Repton and particularly at School House , where the senior boys were based.

The copy is intended for a book being put together by AROPS about life in schools during that period. The deadline is the end of August 2004, so please pass this message on to your wartime colleagues asap.

John Waddell may be contacted at:

I had a very good response to my appeal for memories of Framlingham during the war from those who, like me, were there at that time.

They all helped to confirm of revise my picture of those days and I hope will play at least some part in the book being planned about schools generally during that period.

I can't imagine that what happened at Fram will play a major role in the final book but at least we now have, in written form, an anecdotal picture of the times which may find some other outlet.

So thanks to all those who participated with me with contributions from various parts of the world including America, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.
