I have been following the stories of Ullie with great interest and some amusement!! While I was never taught by him, as a Blackmore's boy, we were allocated tasks to keep the cricket kit storeroom neat and tidy. Beware anyone who failed in their task!! In the darness of the dungeon the flogging came fast and hard!! Conversely, he was quick to praise a job well done and generous in providing advice and guidance.
I have also been chuckling at other teachers names that have come up. Kees van der Westhuizen, what a character!! With me having been born and brought up in, what I call "occupied Natal" ie Northern Natal, Dundee, Afrikaans held no fear for me as I grew up speaking the language. I recall Kees launching himself into the classroom one day, glaring around the room at everyone and, eventually in his funny high pitched voice and strong accent said, "How many people we got in this Class?" The response (I think from Chris Champion), was 28 (I might be out on that number) to which Kees responded " 28 stinking ar**holes and not a single blerry window open!" Needless to say it took some time for composure to return to the class!!
Thanks for the memories!!
Denzil, good to hear from you and Happy New Year to you. I only have Basil's mobile number which is 083 326 7880. I think he has retired as he sems to play golf most Tuesday mornings!!
Hilton Davidson has just retired from SAA. Interestingly, about two years ago I boarded a flight in New York and while I was fiddling around getting myself settled I heard this booming voice saying "I will not have hooligans on my Plane, get off!!!!" It was Hilton, who then burst into a big grin and warmly shook my hand. Needless to say there was a huge sigh of relief from the whole Business Class cabin when they realised there was not going to be an "incident!"
His mobile number is 082 555 7721
I also remember Pat well and sad he moved on so early.
I see Basil Palmer from time to time, he is also a member at Country Club Johannesburg. I have his mobile number if anyone would like it. I must talk to him about getting onto this site. I also bump into Hilton Davidson from time to time but I think he was a year later.
