Below is a sample of the many 'Air Mail' Letter Cards I sent to my parents during my time in the Royal Navy in WW2. The one dated 21/12/43 was the first news I received of my brother Arthur's death a month or so earlier. No emails in those days. Arthur was at KHS with me, and my younger brother Sam, from 1933 to 1945. He worked in the carpenters' shop and in Stratford House with me up to the time he left. He left the Hill to train at a Theological College in Birkenhead and was killed in a bicycle accident in 1943.I have quite a task sorting through all the letters. Unfortunately not many pictures as cameras were strictly forbidden. As I mentioned previously I will get there. Cheers!! Wiggy.
Sylvia Hughes and family would like to let you know that Bob Hughes died peacefully on 12 January 2015
Bob was for a great many years the President of the KHA (now Kingham Hillians) and dedicated his time selflessly in support of his fellow former pupils. He will be in our thoughts forever.
His funeral arrangements are as follows
It is with sadness that we learnt of the death of Dorothy Tucker, school nurse at KHS in the 1970s, who passed away on 9th May 2013. May she rest in peace.
