This email has come in from HARRY WALKER:
************************************

"I WAS AT ST CHRISTOPHER'S 1945 1946. I HATED THE PLACE AFTER ABOUT  FOUR MONTHS I JUST WALKED OUT.

ONE NIGHT I GOT AS FAR AS EALING COMMON WHEN I GOT CAUGHT AND TAKEN BACK.    THE HEAD MASTER, MR WESTGATE,  CALLED AN ASSEMBLY AND TOLD THEM  ALL  WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO ANY ONE WHO RAN AWAY, HE THEN TOOK ME TO THE GYM AND TOLD ME TO TAKE MY PANTS DOWN AND BEND DOWN AND GRAB THE PARRAELL BARS AND BEAT ME WITH A BIG CANE.

AFTER THAT I STARTED BOXING AND THEY SAID I WAS OK AS I WAS A SOUTHPAW I BOXED THREE TIMES TWICE AT LOCAL CLUBS NOT FAR FROM SCHOOL THEN AT ALBERT HALL.

I GOT A SILVER  MEDAL, THINK I WON ALL MY FIGHTS. WHEN I GOT OUT I WENT TO SEA  AND IN AUSSIE THEY HAD A BOXING BOOTH AT A FAIR YOU HAD TO STAY THREE ROUNDS TO GET 5 POUND, SO I WENT AND GOT THAT. YOU SEE AT THAT TIME MY WAGES AS  A DECK BOY WERE 7 POND A MONTH.

ANY WAY,  ST CHRISTOPHER'S CURED ME. I HAVE BEEN MARRIED IN NEW ZEALAND 67 YEARS, HAVE A GREAT FAMIY.

PS THAT MEDAL I WON I THREW INTO THE PACIFIC ON ONE TRIP.

CHEERS HARRY."
