No. 117

The Seniors raised an objection to the Under Remove Town boys being exempted from attending station; for as they said that many of them were minor candidates & would have as juniors in College to attend Station; this argument decided the Head Master in favour of the proposed & he gave out the following rules:-

Rules for Station.

  1. No Boys in the Remove have leave off station, as such: all names of absentees in Remove to be reported by Head Townboy or Monitors of Station to the Head Master.
  2. In Foot-ball Season, Station is in green for all the younger boys, whose names shall be placed upon a list by the House Masters. This ‘Lower Station’ shall be kept by the Head Boy of that List, who shall report all absentees to the Head Town Boy.

No. 93

The T. B. + Q. S. football match was played this half in March /67. We played hard for nearly an hour + at last got 1 game. Which again showed the good of having backs for the QS. only had two + we had 4. We had by far the weaker eleven but it was the having backs that prevented us from being beaten. Just reform the finish D. Davus Q. S. picked a game having carried the ball 3 long paces. It was a very good game indeed + the T. Boys played extremely well together.

No. 92

After Xmas W. T. Dixon left. + S West took the Captainship of the football. Dixon played in the eleven. R. W. E Eastwich gave up his cup as he had smashed his collar-bone 3 times. F. Randolph succeeded him. At the end of last half we challenged Eton + they accepted to play the last day of the half, which they afterwards backed out of saying they could not get an eleven up. They played Civil Service the day before + got well thrashed. 3 games to 0 being the slate of the match when finished. We had played a draw with Civil Service, so it looked well for us + they thought so.
