Yes. I attended HTS from Jan 1953 thru Dec 1955. Loved it, except for Mr. Sheldrake, the chemistry master who always seemed to scare the you-know-what out of me.

One time Mr Sheldrake was talking away and I was in the front row happily designing a car which was a cross between an Aston Martin DB 2 and a Jaguar and I specified a weight of 12 cwt.
I became aware of a silence as I was sprung and to everyone 's amusement he said something to the effect that I apparently had something more important than his lecture and he proceeded to show everyone my handywork.
My fellow students appreciated the introduction of the light relief as he slowly read my notes aloud and they all laughed at my weight estimation.
With the introduction off such materials as Titanium and Kevlar I think I won in the end and to my suprise I dont recall any other punishment!
There were some sad and sadistic teachers at HTS but dont think he was guilty.
 
Hi Guys. My first time on this site . . . wonder who I’ll meet! I too still have my anvil - the original wooden one in 2 halves for casting from. I didn’t keep the casting. I also have my blazer badge, and my school reports for several years. I’ve got a list of surnames of my classmates, in my handwriting. If you’re interested I’ll add them to a message. Wow! this is bringing back old memories. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since then, but it did set me up for a good career.
