London Book-Launch Lunch
The Book Committee have arranged for the Book-Launch Lunch (£15 p.p.) to be held at 12.00 at the Cassit Restaurant, 225 Golders Green Rd. (Tel 020 8455 8195) on Sunday Sept 24th. They fully appreciate that some Whitniks may consider the trip to London a bit much, but want to assure all who ordered JAKE'S LEGACY that dispatch will begin immediately after the launch. As the restaurant accommodation is rather limited all who plan to attend are asked to inform Michael Howard firstname.lastname@example.org (Tel 020 8902 7313 Fax 020 8357 6250) as soon as possible.
Cheers Eldon email@example.com

Welcome to WWW.Whittingehame.com
Some of you are contacting this web-site for the very first time. It really is an amazing achievement -but after all we expect Whitniks to achieve great things. If only Jake were still with us to witness it all ! Here we are at the beginning of June in the year 2000, and Whitniks all over the world are still in close and frequent contact some third of a century after the school so sadly came to an abrupt end. Hardly a week passes without my receiving news of Whitniks achieving something of which we are all proud: a few days ago Lord Harry Woolf, already Master of the Rolls, was sworn in as Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales !!! He was an Edwinsford pupil when Whittingehame was evacuated to Wales, and you will find him in one of the informal groups at the beginning of the photograph album.
Many of you will be able to locate photographic and other interesting items which Louis would love to have - for his appetite for hard work is gargantuan and Whittingehamian. There is a FAQ section which will help you to despatch them safely.
I am currently sending out the Newsletter. Please let me know if yours failed to arrive. In it I mention some of the Whitniks we have recently met - but for some reason I did not include a Brazilian Whitnik (Richard "Divvy" Davidson) who was a fifth-former when Ella and I joined the wonderful Whittingehame family in 1942.Unfortunately few photographs of that war-time period have survived -so if you know of any please let us know, for despite all difficulties they were great days. "Jake's Legacy", which gets nearer and nearer to publication will, of course, reveal all. By the way it is hoped to hold a September party in London (Yes indeed ---this year !!), so if you want details please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org Note the _ between Eldon & Smith
Meanwhile, keep well and happy --and IN TOUCH
All the best. L'Chaim Eldon
