Harrow County School for Boys
Judo Club 1964-65
This photograph was sent in by Richard Amy, who writes:
I seem to recall that this staged photo was taken
for a local paper or perhaps the school magazine, the instructor actually
leapt over the boy rather than being thrown.
I also seem to recall that the instructor was
called "Captain" Ross (every adult connected with HCS loved a
title), and was captain of the British Judo Team at that time, although this
may be entirely a product of my imagination. Alternatively this may have
been a line they spun us at the time in order to get us to cough-up the dosh
for the weekly fee.
I do recall that this photo was taken in the
school gym and from my haircut was circa 1964/1965
If anyone from the photo would like a higher
resolution scan I would be happy to email it to them. This would provide
vital evidence to our kids that we were vaguely athletic once long ago.
