COMPETITION WINNER ANNOUNCED

Following the terrific success of the School Memories Competition, we have now selected the winner as Alan Hancock OD (1946-1953) for his submission entitled Derby School After WW2
We will shortly be posting this article on the site, subject to Alan’s permission, for all to read. We will also be serialising some great work by Martin Holmes OD (1940-1947) in the very near future.
Congratulations to Alan and our thanks to all who entered the competition.

“A recent archive finding is that what most OD’s remember as the Cadet Corps armoury was in fact built to house a Sanatorium for the boarders in St. Helen’s House along with a private nurse’s room and living space for two unmarried masters to occupy.
We anticipate Andrew Polkey’s revised article will be of great interest.
As archivist may I seek your thoughts on these findings and perhaps ideas where we could start uncovering more unknown history?”
