MEMORIES

Browing website, found the question by Phil Groves, asking if anyone remembered the gym master.

His name when I was there was "Jumping" Jim Junker. Looked a bit like Rolf Harris. Another legend is that he was in the Danish resistance during WWII and was smuggled out. His great push in the 6th form was blood donation. We all had to gather after morning assembly to listen to him - after 10 minutes (at least in my year), three lads were on the floor having fainted.

Huish's then being boys only, I was extremely enthusiastic about a notice from him one day advertising fencing in the all-girls school, Weirfield. Never succeeded with the girls, but I am still fencing when I can!
