This little anecdote possibly from a pupil, gives an insight into college life in the early 1900's.
In Downside I thought I had been sent, at 10 years old, to a lunatic asylum because while we had our temperatures taken every morning we had to keep our toes off the fireside mat in the dormitory while Matron gave us 3 mouthfuls of pink gargle. Betty and I both have memories of walking from House to College in a silent crocodile, as a house punishment, because someone had scraped their chair after Grace at breakfast and no-one would own up. We still laugh when we remember Miss Wickham falling flat on her face with a pile of exercise books spilling across the floor and raising her head just enough to say
"When I don't laugh it's not funny."
After 1950 continued teaching in Surrey. (Bryan Cooper) Stella Wickham was Godmother to John STRONG (Bryan Cooper) Parents: Rev. Archdale Palmer "Archie" WICKHAM m.a. and Harriet Elizabeth Amy STRONG.
