Yes that's us folks, the Crème de la Crème; reflecting back now this past fifty years with this photo. It does confirm that butter would not melt in some of our rancid little mouths.
The one and only time that I have ever been asked to write an article about a period in my past life was a couple of years ago for an ex employee organisation involved in aviation. I had ran one of the divisions of this group for 5 ½ years. The consequence of my article, which was forthright, was that the organisation shut up shop the following year - thanking me for my honesty in telling everybody what had really happened when the group in question collapsed in 1974!
So it was with some trepidation that I agreed to contribute an article for the KHSD Website.
The autobiography of a Kingham Hill School boy: John Timmins, Sheffield House 1957-1962.
War Baby: The true story of a search for identity by a boy adopted in the confusion of World War II
Brief Description: John Timmins has led an extraordinary life, from being given up for adoption at just six months old at the end of World War II and orphaned at a young age, through time spent travelling and working abroad, several troubled marriages and many different careers. The one thing that has dominated his life above all else is his quest to find his true identity.

On Sunday 2nd June, a group of KHS Old Boys who live in the East Anglia region met for a lunch reunion at the White Horse Inn in Whepstead. It was a wonderful opportunity for members of the Kingham Hill community to come together, renew acquaintes and form new friendships over a pint of Suffolk ale and some excellent food.
Keeping Alive Our Memories
As you may know I sit on the KHA committee both as an observer for School Days and as Vice-Chair of the KHA. In these very different roles I have been acutely aware of the KHS decision in relation to alumni affairs and closely involved with the KHA response to it.
Whilst School Days operates independently 'independence' does not mean isolation, together with some other benefits it allows prompt progress in a dynamic world. The School Days website has an established role in its own right but it also has an important function in communicating current news and the good work both organisations do, because of the value our community places on it. Without the direct support and collaboration of both KHS and the KHA School Days would not be able to offer quite as much.
