Hello there, thought I might be able to add a couple of names to the list of people who lived through the Kent Experience and whos whereabouts are known; I spent 2 years working with Martin Lacklison in Malta recently, and visited Maki Takashima in Tokyo. If you're passing Japan one day- drop in -it's close to Nirvana imo. Mr Mordecai and Danny and Lynda Strike were kind enough to put me up for a night or so as I passed by as I drove round europe for something to do last year. I visited Kent and bluffed my way in- (told the dopey 'guard' I was interested in buying the site) I have about 100 photos, will post some. Pretty depressing pics mind you- bullet hole in the front entrance doors, all trashed inside. The chapel is interesting... Good to see many familiar names on this site - trying to put a face to the name is another matter... 40 yrs old next week! seeesh...

Fantastic site guys! Does tend to keep me away from my work though. I lived in St Tonis, Krefeld for 3 years and knocked about with Caroline Davis, Chris Stephenson, Hayden Lunn amongst others. Looking forwards to the next time you guys meet up, will have to join you. It looks a scream!

Hello all ex Kenties this is a great site brings back many great memories. My dad was stationed at Bruggen so I went to Cheshire Middle School and then to Kent in the third year. I was in 3PJM Mr Martins tutor group, he was a bit of a dude and all the birds fancied him. In my class I remember Russel Flint, Ceri Whitley, Louise Allen, Siobhan, Julia Jones (I play snooker with her dad and uncle most Saturdays). I seen her last year and she still looks great. She was on the same P&A course as me aswell in the late 80's when we were in the RAF - small world. I will have to get myself to one of these reunions, I think my liver should just about be able to cope with it. Keep up the outstanding work all those who organise this great site.

Hi all, just found this site after googling Kent School trying to describe what it was really like at Colditz to my daughter!! They say the best years of your life are at true is that. Kent was unique and holds fond memories for me. Hopefully someone may remember me - I'm the one who had his 3-button high waster trousers nicked from the changing rooms and spent the rest of the week in jeans!!! I was a border at Deal House for my final year and shared a dorm with Paul Brazier. My favourite wind up was doing impersonations of the teachers, unfortunately Mr Cassidy didn't see the funny side. Brian Hollis was a good mate of mine, he was the guitar player in the school band Image...remember them??? Anyone fancies a reminisce just drop me a line. BTW - remember the careers lessons? Did anyone actually become a Mastic Asphalt Spreader??????

Hi all,

Lived in Wildenrath and was a day student at Kent. Remember the old youth club (club67), on the base, it used to be way up the other end by the Malcom Club. It was a black building with yellow trim. It had an aquarium with gold fish in it. We used to dump all kinds of stuff in there but the fish never died. Then they moved the club down closer to the picture house. Our group of delinquents were the ones responsible for painting the dance room at the club flat black and putting up the black lights.

Friends at school, Ian Heath, Michael Bennett, Duncan Flynn and many more. Started off in Canterbury under that idiot Mr English then moved on to Rochester. Spent many a lunch hour in his office. Got suspended in the end and came back into Rochester house.I did quite well at the swimming gala's at Reindahlen, breast stroke and diving. Have been in contact with many people from those days, the Crowther sisters, Brenda Redpath, Carol James, Steve Anderson, and many more. Drop me a line if you remember me or want any e-mail addresses of the above.

I lived in Leipziger Strasse, St Tönis, nr Krefeld, spent most of my spare time at Bradbury Barracks (16 Sigs), swimming pool, SKC, Youth Club - even scouts! I loved seeing the pictures of the school, (despite it's unhappy state), brought back oh so many memories.

Another one. Started at Kent in Sept 1974 and had maths teacher Ian Farquar, a fellow Scot from Dundee. He was a brilliant teacher. Knew exactly what to expect in the 1976 A-level maths exam. My family comes from Dundee and on a visit back home in Summer 1975 we were talking to Dundee relatives about school and mentioned Ian Farquar. "Wee bloke that plays rugby?" asked my Aunty Maureen (married to my Dad's brother). "That's right." "He was at Harris Academy with me." Mentioned this to Mr Farquar when school restarted 09/75. "Do you remeber Maureen Ramsay from the Harris Academy?" I asked. "She was my lass." he replied. How small can the world be? Phil

Strang coincidence after leaving school. I raduated from Glasgow University (Electronics) and started work at Ferranti in Edinburgh. I was chatting to one of the blokes I worked with about school days and told him about Germany. "Oh, there's a bloke in Gyro Test that went to school in Germany." "Oh aye!" I said and thought no more about it. A month or so later we had a skittles night and I sort of half recognised one of the blokes. Heard his accent and that prompted me to ask if he had gone to Kent. Jeff Hebden was in L6 while I was in U6 in 1976. Beat that!

Ok - just realised that I don't have an entry so thought it was time I did. Lived at Elmpt (Bruggen) and moved to Wildenraft the summer of 76, till December 77. Loved Kent school, seeing as my surname was Kent at the time how could I not! Was the first school I went to where big brother was housed (Mick Kent 5th yr), mum was also a bus escort on teh tin cans. Favourite memory is learning to play hockey, taught by Mrs Warmsley - I went onto play for Northampton Ladies later in life so she taught me well. Other names I don't remember, but best mate was Sarah Beeby (would love to find her). Must one day dig out my leaving book from the attic with everyone's names in. Loved the stories about the attic and the cellars, brother used to scare me stupid with ghosts stories. Sandra Harding used stay with us a weekends as she hated boarding - sadly she died a few years ago. Love to hear from anyone who remebers me - will definately make it to Swindon, gutted that I couldn't go to the big reunion earlier.

So sad to see the school in the state it's now in, i was looking at the pictures and had a flash back to the tuck shop that was near one of the gates (i think) and laying on the grass at lunch time and looking up at the small arch windows at the top of the blocks, and does anyone else remember some kind of animal sanctuary mainly birds i seem to remember near the sports fields, i am not to clear of the dates i went there, but my father was in the RAF and stationed at wildenrath and we used to bus there everyday, i used to live at the far end of wildenrath near where the youthclub, robin way it may have been ?, i used to belong to the photo clud at kent school, and if anyone remembers me drop me a line, i used to pal around with a chap called neil rowe ? i still remember the school uniform and those bloody ties,

I cannot for the life of me remember Nick Harris. Though I feel I should. Steve Webley was head boy when I was upper sixth. Some one mentioned Nick Manley, what happened to him we were friends. Some one mentioned Christine Quarantines legs... once seeen (as a seventeen year old) never forgotton. Did Phillip Bishop become a doctor? If any one sees Susan Herbert, tell her I think of her often, she went to Tonbridge Wells and we lost touch.

I also remeber Mr. Rusten (Drama) he had the drama classroom totally blackend out and had us listen to Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother in the pitch dark for a double drama lesson. Was that cool or what ? Then there was Bob Sherill (Technical Drawing Class) he had quite long hair for a teacher, was in a wheelchair and a really great guy. He let a couple of us lads drive his converted car in his spare time. Oh yes, and there was Christine Quarington in my class, a beautifull girl with blond hair and gorgeous legs.I and many other guys were crazy about her. David Coburn and Andrew Lawson (His dad was a headteacher elswhere) are 2 of the few names I recall.

Does anyone recall sciving lessons and exploring the locked up wards and the attics ??? One of the girls fell through the rotting attic floor and landed on a toilet on the lower floor, fortunately no serious harm was done.

Really so many fond memories which i would love to share with anyone who was arround at the time.

At last !! I've been waiting for this opportunity for ages to get in contact with anybody from my schooldays at Kent. Unfortunately I do'nt remember too many names. TEACHERS: Mr. England (History) Mrs. Denier (Music) Mr. Lovegrove (German) FRIENDS: One name really sticks out DAVID HOLLAND. We used to hang out together and listen to John Mayall and Eric Clapton. I remember getting caught smoking behind the barn, there were about 50 of us. We had to queue outside the headmasters office for "six of the best". I remember it well. "This is going to hurt me more than it's going to hurt you" It was a great laugh. I was playing in a band and we performed at the annual school dance. Anybody who may know anyone from those days please let me know. Give us a shout. Looking forward to hearing from you.

This my current band: or

Wierd reading this after all these years. A lot of good memories mixed with a few bad. Lot of the names are well remembered and being as I believe in Karma things can only get better. Remember Mr Ellis showing us his photo's of him drressed in a womens swimsuit! Probably be nicked for that these days. Ended up in the morgue in 4rg (gregory the pipe) Saw Redman at Heathrow years ago. Bumped into John Morrel on Southend pier with his son. Sold a tv on hire purchase to Mr Freeze (Frize) the scottish teacher. Caused mayhem in Minny Martins Maths group. Lived at Green Park (SHAPE) hated those interminable journeys across europe! Currently working as a jobbing builder for a small chain of pubs in north London. Living with an angel but no kids due to a plumbing defect (she'll kill me for that one). Planning on selling up and downsizing to Cumbria and the n live off of the proceeds of my flat! Particularly remeber Baldwin, Brett, Miller and Smith. In short not a place I would have sent any kids of mine to (had I any). Be good out there in e-world.

Well ... I suppose I could let you off that now, but I still have some pretty horrific memories of a guy you knew as Chengo. Up until a few years ago I still had a darkened front tooth from that encounter! Urgh!

You may also remember the Sharpe family, most notably Blair. I think it was Blair and his youmger brother who joined our happy(?) crew on the bus to Kent School. They were of Canadian origin, and I believe that Blair is now a respected Artist back in Canada.

Also you might remember a very slightly built girl named Heather Moyce who joined us in about 1973 . . not sure if her younger sister Debbie was there as well. Anyway their Father was my Old Mans' Boss at Clutch Radar.

I do remember the Phillips Halle well, I used to bring home about half a dozen oddities for concerts on the bus, but my Mother was usually inundated with double that amount of impromtu lodgers on those nights ... she was in the DK (Drunken Kids) Guide as highly recommended I think! Happy Days ... well some of them.

It was good to hear from someone (Nick) from the same era and place. I don’t recall ousting anyone from a seat on the school coach, but suppose quite possible given the likelihood of going ‘stir-crazy’ given the long journeys. Belated apologies to you Nick. – hope you don’t bear a grudge! Some of the names Nick gave are ringing bells – if somewhat vaguely. It’s an age thing. I recall Lindy as our respective parents were friends. I am trying to unearth a photo (c 1974) of Tonbridge House 6th form and, if so, will post it to the web site. This might spark a few memories, if only the mullets!

As a dependent of an MOD civilian, losing touch with Kenties was almost inevitable, although I kept in touch with a couple of people for a while. I really would like to track down Jimmy Pearce. He was an avid Spurs fan and we had some great times watching them and other British clubs in Eufa Cup matches – including Liverpool and Rangers at the Bokelberg Stadion. Also some good nights watching bands at the Philips Halle. Jimmy lived at Wildenrath and them moved to Dereham/Swafham in Norfolk. If anyone has any clues….

The recent reunion sounded fantastic – and quite emotional. Looking forward to seeing any follow-up pictures etc. Intrigued about the ‘spoons’ game!

For Alan Mitcheson ... I should have browsed back here before now ! You should remember me Alan, I'm the kid you chucked out of "his" seat on the long run from Dusseldorf. Names I used to knock about with are Mike Tate, Phillip Bishop, Lindsay Turner, Charlie Bendall and a couple of other guys who's names for the life of me I can't remember. I lived in Goltzheimer Platz, Dusseldorf in between Shane Kennedy (he of the ginger and white hair) and Lindy Spinks !

I knew Nigel Parsons well, one night in Rhiendahlen we borrowed a bands' instruments for a very drunken impromtu jamming session. It was a good job I didn't take Nige's advice to "Buy a Bass (Guitar)", ... I'm still crap with one now !

Anyone who knew me say "Hi", the best to you all.

Hi Mo, glad all is well with you. I am divorced and with new partner (4years). Have 3 children, 2 girls and a boy. My eldest daughter is getting married in July. No dogs, had a cat but he died last year at age 19. Fiona and Dawn live just north of peterborough. do you remember Carol Highmore form Bruggen? Back in touch with her as well as Michelle and Carol James. (she was from Wildenrath) Don't remember some of the names, maybe as i was a bit older. Alan Roberstson lives at Scarborough, we popped up to see him and his wife. Remember when the youth club used to be called the Weavers before it moved over next to the Crossbow club. Many nights spent dancing in the club. Had a go at go-go dancing once too for a while. Did the fire dance!!. All summer spent at the swimming pool. I still have the season ticket! Carefree days! You used to know the girl who lived next door to me but I can't remember her name. Can't remember many teachers names. Miss Moriarty was my form tutor. Mr Whitley maths teacher (had a crush on him). Mr Redmund - art. Mr Rushton? English. Actually, still have my school reports from Kent up in the loft. Miss Mayfield for PE.

This e-mail address is correct, put the wrong one on last time.

I remember Derry McDonald well, we had some laughs at Webschulstrasse, that poor German boy Uwe we used to tease! I had brothers David and Martin. It was so long ago. Forgot about eating in the mortuary, thanks for the reminder! Loved Kent School but names have faded over the years, except for Miss Moriarty, Mr Lovegrove, Mr England who married Miss Burton, Sandie Swan, Marilyn from SHAPE and Kate.

Raskol Nikoff?? Who are you and where did you live? You must be the same age as my brother Ian, the only friends I remember of his were Colin Robertson, Sammy Bridges, Chris Smith and Otto (burnt his face badly under a sun lamp!) Ian remembers the other people you mentioned.

Mo, hope havent scared you off, they were nice mentions in my diary!! Hope life has treated you well.

Attn: Fiona & Mo,

Remember you both from a long, long time ago. I did my time at Kent & Bruggen too. I have the honour of being expelled from Kent in the very last weeks of 5th year - they kindly offered to let me go back for exams but I could not be bothered.

Some other names to conjour with from school and Bruggen....

School - Callie Fulton, Christian (Hanny) Hanchard, Graham Higgins, 'Dobie Wallah' (can't remember his real name), Simon Whitworth, Selwyn L'Esau (?), Brian Newlands (younger bro was John I think), Mr Mordecai, Angie (Phelps?) from Dusseldorf.

Bruggen - Ian Morrison (your bro, Fiona), Ian 'Jacko' Jackson (SWO's son - really into Elton John), Vanessa Coterill, Pat(ricia) Kennett, Sylvie Meneer, Mick Culley(?) (think he joined the army), Des Gower (had a little bro too), Alan & Colin Robertson, Brian & John Hargreaves, Shaun Hurst (his bro Derek was last seen working at JHQ bowling Alley circa 1990), Craig (?) - who thought himself mister cool (didn't he go out with Sally?), who was the little lad who lived up near the main gate (had a younger sister called Marie?).

Good times :o

Chicken Inn disco's, swimming pool, Andy's Place, sneaking in to 'X' rated films and being chased out again by Ma Slade, going to Dusseldorf to see bands play at the Rhein Halle, the Belgique Bar at JHQ, Pigalle in Elmpt, the Border Bar (used to sneak through a hole in the fence), lying in the bath to get Levi's 'shrink-to-fit', BBQ's at the American Bar, bike rides to Venekotenzee(?), saturday shopping on Roermond, go-kart bahn just past Niederkruchten....

yup, really good times :o

Anyone remember me? Kent was really creepy. Teachers were nice though. i.e Mr Cassidy, Mr Taylor. Any of you remember Dawn Stainthorpe, Sue Winter, Michelle Mulvana, Yvonne Davies? Would be nice nice to hear from anyone.
