William,

It may be of no help for you to now that we were employed at the school 1974-76. Your name rang a bell immediately as David was your teacher. We also remember Tommy Baker and his sidekick Malcolm! We believe we also knew your father if he was a Petty Officer called Ted.

My sister and I were there between May 1974 and March 1976 - Susan & Ian Hunneybell.

Dad was FCREA Brian Hunneybell who was down at Tombeau Bay receiver station.

Mr Hague! I do remember you, with reverence I must add. Ever since the day told the class that the capital of Holland was the same as your name - The Hague - I have remembered both their capital and my teacher that day!

I was short and pretty quiet, and a bit of a swot if truth be told, but I did enjoy school in general and my schooldays in Mauritius in particular.

William, I don't recall your name but we may not have been in the same class, and as I say, I was not very outgoing and so probably didn't know many people in the school. I was aged 9-11 while in Mauritius, and my sister was 11-13, maybe one of us was in the same year? I seem to recall there were two classes in each year. What a privileged childhood we had being taught in such a small school.

Thanks for the chance to rekindle memories.

After I grew up I lived in London for 20-odd years and am now in Both, leading a slightly quieter life. Non-military, I'm afraid, I never followed in my father's footsteps, turning to computers instead!

Cheers,
Ian

Hi, I'm Jackie & my brothers were are Andrew & Simon, my mum ias Ann & my dad was CPO Spencer & our surname was Rawlins when my my family was in Mauritius in74/75. I remember Susan Hunneybell, Natalie & Tracey Bell, girls called Janine, Norma, boys called Stephen & Chris (I think was lieutenants son & into Queen). The Tracey's & others whose names I can't quite recall. I remember Bagsy Baker (he taught us to swim), weekends at Chaland beach club, riding the giant tortoises, running off over the old golf course, snorkelling & collecting shells; mum hanging the shells on dough hooks on the balcony to draw out the "ickeys ". Batty House, pictures, badminton & all sorts of activities in Traf. Hall. The market at Vacoas with the chilli cake man. Lordy we were so lucky!!!
