Ahh, Boarding School...
"One dormitory used to lock the other borders out, so they settled it with a fight. Two prefects were there, and there was a roll-call to see that all the fighters were there... it was a lovely fight. Pat Grant was in it, and he fought well, considering his size..."
Didn't know there was a boarding school in Barbados. Was it regular for kids to be sent there instead of up to England in those days? Being away but not so far away seems nicer for kid and child.
I love the quaintness of 'Master Pat'
