Alasdair McFarlane

Three characters come to mind for differing reasons:

  1. As always "Wilf" or "Buller" (Jeffries, art master) and his oft hear cry....... "take it away boy it smells"
  2. George Butterworth who, in this current "elf and safety" era would be prosecuted for tossing his blackboard duster at any pupil misbehaving (Ed: he wasn't alone, of course, as other staff had various "missiles" that were projected in one way and another. But, I don't think it did any of us any long term harm and most of us soon got the message and didn't misbehave as a result!)
  3. Mr Burnett (French) where, as a "green" first year, beckoned all new entrants with "Jem'appelle....." . I didn't have a clue what he was on about!
