Re the earlier entry on woodwork teacher Mr Arlow. If I'm correct he was Welsh and had played football at a professional level. I made a coffee table in his class during the 4th year before I returned to the UK and where it had pride of place in our living room for many years to follow. Great days at Kent - many happy memories.

I remember Mike Arlow extremely well. In September 1971 I was a new young member of staff living in Nr.2 Civilian Mess on JHQ. I was to be married in the December of that year. Mike and his wife, (whose name I can't recall), made me feel very welcome to the school and indeed to life at JHQ. That warm welcome continued when my wife arrived as a young bride from trouble torn Belfast. Consequently I have very good and positive memories of your father as a friend and valued colleague.

Mr Arlow I seem to recall. We did woodwork in a workshop that was downstairs - perhaps under the chapel area, opposite the main building. Our woodwork projects were making a book rack, with 'stopped housing joints' and then a pencil case with a sliding lid. Much enjoyed times and many fond memories!

Hi I have strong memeories of Kent school. Apart from the amazingly gloomy gothiic pile it is there were the seemingly endless journies to and from Wassenberg in those green busses. They seemed to be made of tin cans and they stopped at every town on the way! I recall scratching the ice off the inside of the windows in winter.
I remember Mr Redman who turned me onto art (I work in the arts now), and Mad Mr Ellis in his dark and scary drama room.
I remember the Farm building with the sunken well- I still feel guilty about an incident there- the man who lived in the farm had a pet hare and a few of us ( no recollection who now) scared the hare in our childish ignorance so much in ran into a wall and cracked its head in.
I remember the AAA athletics we did (4 A's only for me)
The small wildlife center behind the canteen buidling..I got into trouble as it was off limits and I went to see the Zebra!

We had (what felt like) a long bus ride to get there from Roermond. Grim buildings looking back at the photos. I must have been 11 when I came. It seemed huge, chaotic and noisy. I was bulled for a while. I had no idea about the building's terrible past. In retrospect it was a pity my experience there made me give up English and History, but I still like the German language.

Vague memories of the school, skiing trip to the Hertz mountains. Smoking in the 6th form and travelling from Krefeld in the old green bus- we lived on Kempener Allee- family of four girls and one boy. I left half way through A-Levels as I was fed up with the place and wanted to be normal - then went and married a soldier!

Hi having a nostalgic trip down memory lane today - starting with RAf Laarbruch where my dad was stationed. We lived off base in the small town of Weeze. Took the daily trip to Kent school (Initially boarded in Chatham house ). Can't remember my classes but would love to hear from other former pupils that attended during those years. My best friend was Charlie (tall blonde short cropped hair) and my first boyfriend was Nick Adamczieck? Also was in a dance group (can't remember name!). My last boyfriend was Franco fiorito in fact got engaged to him 😳

Hi all, very happy memories and one sad memory. Kent School was the best school I ever went to. My best friends was Susan Trantham and Karen (cannot remember her surname) Karen and I were known as the terrible twins lol. My saddest memory is my mum dying in 1974. I remember the tin can buses and where we used to live Menzalstrasse, the block of flats (6) and we used to go on holiday with the Proctors and the Cutlers. I am in touch with Graeme Cutler and Mr.Mrs Proctor. And just recently was in touch with Suzanne Cutler. If you remember me get in touch would love to hear from you x

Miss Hallam - I remember you well. One day you arrived with a box of cakes from a local bakery who had given them you as compensation for something you found in one of their products. You also gave the whole class on one occasion the punishment of writing an essay with each word starting with the same letter - that one got the whole family at home involved! If I can remember anything else I will be sure to note it here.

Loved Kent School, had a ball there. I felt really out of place when we moved back to the UK. We didn't live on camp either so it was really hard to integrate with the civvie kids.

We lived at Geilenkirchen and Wildenrath during my dad's tour. I hated the bus trip from Geilers every day it took forever. If it had been 5 miles further away we would have boarded. I was in Maidstone house until they disbanded them. I'm rubbish with names (but good with faces) but still in touch with Christa Graham - now Thompson.

My hubby was posted to RheinD in 1994. We met up with Mr Lacklson and Mr Stanisby. I went to the School but couldn't get in through the fences. If I'd been on my own I may of risked it but my daughter was only small then.
