Thanks to Des Slade (BHCHS 1939-44) and his son Martin Slade (BHCHS 1968-75) we are able hear the voice of JH Taylor, the first Headmaster of BHCHS. Des's family organised a surprise party on the occasion of his 60th birthday. JH Taylor, then in his 80s, was unable to attend the celebration, but sent this recording in which he pays tribute to one of the stalwarts of the Old Bucks.
