Hammy Sparks delivered an excellent and moving speech
If you missed the 50th anniversary old Hodgsonites dinner you can read the text of the speech that Hammy delivered.
I never wanted to be a Housemaster and I never expected to be asked to be one. When Peter Attenborough invited me to succeed Bill Aitken in Hodgsonites I said ‘No’. He gave me many reasons why he thought I would enjoy the job and asked me to go away and think about it, which I did, eventually agreeing to his request.

Simon Perutz has kindly assembled stunning collections of images from his time at Charterhouse:
These are located on the photo sharing website Flickr in four libraries. There are all well worth a visit to gain a flavor of the House and School before the New Houses were in use.
