I received an e-mail from Chris McCready today that was received via the HC website, which I have reproduced below. I personally am unable to shed any light on the matter, but perhaps one or more of you may know something. All replies gratefully welcome.
I have suggested to Chris that a copy of the picture would be useful as someone may recognise something, e.g. background etc. I will leave it to Chris to request that Mr Bonham obliges and we will publish the picture here on the blog.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all A very Merry Christgmas and a Peaceful and Happy New Year!
E-mail as follows:
I have a picture of my father Gordon Bonham (1918- 1998) and my uncle Howard Whitehouse (c 1923-2003) in their school uniform, both of whom I think went to Harlow College. Unfortunately they are wearing trench- type coats so no blazer is visible. However, caps are worn showing a shield style badges. The younger boy wears a lighter cap with a darker front segment with the shield badge divided into four with no further detail visible. The older boy's cap is dark in colour with a different style badge, with little detail visible.
Was the school badge shown on your Home Page always the same or has it changed through history? Did the school ever have different badges for different House Teams?
Can anyone throw any light on this minor mystery?
Thanks in anticipation,
