Fond Memories of Indie Life
I would really like to extend my very good wishes to Patrick Purser whom I remember as 'Pat' when I lived in one of the 'Staff Houses' on the grounds of the Indefatigable School, Anglesey. Number 2, to be precise.
My EX (I'm glad to say) was the Bursar there - David Farrow - and I had a lot of involvement with the boys as the Bursar's wife i.e. Pocketmoney, Tuck Shop Supplies and, hopefully, being a 'friend' and surrogate mum to a lot of them.
I too, unfortunately, remember the deputy headmaster John, whom I lived next door to (I was at No 2). Pete Burrell is another 'memory', shall we say? As too is 'Jack Simpson'.
I have very fond memories of the 'fun' days, happy days but, as with all things, it sadly did not last. In fact they died with the appearance of new Headmaster, Peter White.
If possible, could my very best wishes be passed on to Pat?
He will, I hope, remember me as Estelle, the Bursar's wife in my days there from approx 1985/6 to when I left in 1992?
He will, most definitely, remember David Farrow, the Bursar who started out so well BUT............... enough said!
I think it fair to say that I shared some interesting, and entertaining chats with Pat in the Staff Room (I definitely remember his pipe), and I still think of him as being one of the 'real stalwarts of 'Indie'.
Certainly, the boys looked very kindly on him as well. One of the few they did.
Happier times indeed! Hope you remember me with kindness Pat?
