Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham Boys’ School – School Captains

SchoolCaptains

Honours Board in the School hall listing School Captains since 1930. Anthony Sargeant, Tony, remembers the sign-writer coming once a year to update this and the other honours board. Done in situ he would climb a step ladder and paint the name in with a yellow sticky paint before applying the gold leaf. In 1960 Tony took the school photographs including the school prefects with Mr Goddard the Headmaster. In that year there were joint school captains as can be seen on the board, Paul Clements and Adrian Moss.

November Sunset from my Shropshire home

Anthony Sargeant photographed this sunset from his Shropshire home on the 3rd November 2016 looking west across the sheep fields that surround the house. It was a quiet and clear night.
