    Berkhampstead School

    Hello Troops
    Can any one put a photo up, of the Berkhampstead school. There are a couple on eBay, but they are not the same badge.
    Thanks.

    They wore the old RVC badge.

    Ebay ones are usually the slightly different design of 1908 Yeomanry ones or the Herts & Beds yeo fake long antlered deer badges that were not worn by post Ww2 Yeomanry ORs but are widely faked.

    I have yet to find one myself so it's on my 'wants' list.

      Many thanks Alan for your help. I have bought the badge on ebay through a reputable dealer, so thanks again.

          Alan, the badge I bought is the same one as in your photo, with the s/titles.
          I don't know how to put a photo up on the forum, sorry.
          Regards Terry

              Berkhampstead School

              As an Old Berkhamstedian and a former member of the CCF it's really interesting to see this thread. And it's nice to see Berkhamsted spelt as 'Berkhampstead' - the way I (as a child) and many other people still used to spell it in the 1960s. There have apparently been hundreds of ways of spelling it over the years!

                    Berkhampstead School

                    Berko is what everyone calls the town. I'm a real Berko boy! Family lived there for generations - though technically we lived in Northchurch. None left there now - except for the ones buried there! Would love to live there again but just couldn't afford it - not a cheap place to buy a house.

                    Former boys of Berkhamsted School are known as 'Old Berkhamstedians'. I was there in the days before it combined with the Girls School.

                    Haven't been back for a few years. It's about time I did again.

                      Bit of a mouthful, but far better than 'Old Berks'

                      It is a lovely town though.

                      Regards.
