We are very grateful to Joe Pengelly (1936-43) for being the first Old Boy to provide some spoken recollections not only of his life and times as a student at DHSB, but through his varied career which included a long spell as a familiar face of the news at BBC Spotlight South West.
Use this link https://db.tt/GSsaTutT to download and play the MP3 file. Joe was interviewed by DHSB Radio presenters Henry Spencer and Alfie Carlisle on Wednesday 13 April at the school radio station.
We welcome recollections, memories and personal stories from our Old Boys – please send in an editable format to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The first such submissions have been received from Peter Wright a student between 1953 and 1960 and Malcolm Eastcott (43 – 48) with some wonderful recollections as a student evacuee in Penzance. Equally fascinating stories of the wartime years are also recounted by Robert G Coles (43 – 50) and Bob Rickard.
We are grateful for the most recent recollections which were posthumously donated by the family of Barrie Rundle and describe his experience as an evacuee in Penzance and his subsequent employment within the building industry as a quantity surveyor. Our thanks to Patricia Wass, Barrie’s daughter, for transposing the notes which were handwritten on the occasion of the school’s centenary in 1996.
