I have wonderful memories of Tal Handaq although I was only there for 1 year, it was one of the best school years in my life. It would be great to link up with some old friends .

(Admin reply - Hello David, I will forward your note to Viv Daly who keeps the past-pupil database. You can also contact her at Viv@dmeventservices.co.uk if you wish to contact anyone she has listed (she can send you the list) or at least pass on your email to them if they have not all agreed for theirs to be released.

There are two TH facebook groups and also a page linked to THNostalgia if you are on FB).

I'm sending this on behalf of my brother (Graham Derrick) who was at TH from the summer of '54 until late '55 when he returned to Blighty to join an Army Junior Leaders Regiment. He was in the Modern stream - Forms 2C, 3C and 3B. He's not online but I can convey messages. I know he would be delighted to hear from anyone who may remember him.

Names that he recalls include: Alan Peyton, Arthur Wilson, James Brown, Ray Ball, Colin Glass, Fred Caunter, Maurice Perrin, Robert Dungey, Wilf Hart, "Robert E" Lee, Jean Reid, Phyllis Rawlins, Jean White, Viv White, Juliette Neave, Joan Helen. What a memory!!

I've had comments printed on this site before, I was in 1DG in '56/'57 (formerly at St Andrews)

Admin reply - if you are on Facebook Bernard there are two TH groups you can join. Also if you email Viv Daly who keeps the database she will say whether she has any of those folk on file - some even with emails - - Viv@dmeventservices.co.uk . (Whilst writing were either of you at Verdala? New FB group started).

Does anyone know of the the contact details of John Hughes at all? He was my form master in 1974/75 at Tal Handaq and we wrote to each other for a number of years. I lost contact when he was teaching in Germany.

I would love to get in contact.

Cheers

Just to say hi, and so pleased to see this site still running, so thank you. I have contributed photos previously and really enjoy looking at the collection. So valuable and irreplaceble archive of our exceptional school and experiences when we attended Tal Handaq.

(Admin - thank you Lynn, keep an eye on latest uploads. The site has become eclipsed a bit by FB - see also our page there started by David G ["Prefect"] - https://www.facebook.com/TalHandaqNostalgia/ ).
