    Our uniform was a dark blue blazer, white cotton shirt, grey flannel trousers, blue ribbed wool v-neck and a black tie (there was a rumour that we were still in mourning for Queen Victoria!). Oh yes, and our underwear had to be white and our socks had to be black, dark grey or Navy blue.

    We could select par the Blazer, Tie, and School Crest for the Blazer from ny other Shop

    I recall going from Primary - we got a list and it had all these Coloured Jumpers on - Burgendy, Navy, Grey, Black etc and I thought wow fine a nice choice here, though they had not defined which Schools it applied to. I guess at least we could have Navy or Black at my Secondary so a choice existed

    On a sub-note on the first day in Year 7/1st Year I made a Conserevative effort to not wear a Jumper as we had got Shirt and Blazer anyhow and probably a Coat - so I guessed doing that eqauted to looking cool minus a Jumper - then all mates "ribbed" me jokingly say it was mandatory - then how times changed in I often had a Jumper on from Oct to Feb or so and no mates did'nt ... so the screw was well and truly turned there to make me look daft after I thought/realized!

    Sounds like something out of a St Trinian's film.

    We had a few who was keen at mine, Richard - but they never went o.t.t ruthlessly

    My 2nd school was way more keen than the first - but the first one told you first day in Year 7 - what to expect and though the 2nd was more keen (they had more "favourites" as such who they'd let off)!!
