Christopher Latham (Chatham 51)

Christopher writes, “I have now attained the age of 88. My five years at Stowe had happy memories of Alastair McDonald as Housemaster of Chatham and JF as Headmaster – the inspiration for Stowe. A speciality was the individual personalities of many of the Masters who flourished under his leadership. Amongst them Hamish, Fritz, Windy Dick and others I have since forgotten. I wonder if the Stowe menu in the late forties of whale and snoek helped? Also, the occasional dips in the nine-acre lake must have been beneficial for what is now called wild swimming; Happy memories!”
