Dedicated to all who attended London Central High School in Bushy Park, London England from 1952 to 1962

1953 - Jackie (Brown) Kenny
want to thank all of you for the articles you send in each month so that
we can keep this newsletter going.
I appreciate it, and I know all your classmates do also.
Your memories are important because they bring back so many great
memories for all of us. However,
one slight problem has arisen lately and I need your help. Because this Newsletter only goes out by email I am limited
in how much I can put into it and still keep it small enough to send
some of the articles have been quite long but I have printed all of them
where I could because you sent them in and I think it is interesting for
our classmates, but this does limit how much I can put in each issue.
Some of the articles cover more than one item, which is fine, but
it does make them long. As
a suggestion, maybe you could split them up in to two or more articles
and then they could be used in more than one issue.
If you send it I will use it (maybe not in the next issue, but it will be used in an upcoming issue) so please don’t stop submitting your articles and memories. I hope I haven’t hurt anyone’s feelings and if I have I do sincerely apologize. Thank you for all you do to keep all of us together.
Note: Because there are so many corrections this time I am moving this
column to the last couple of pages of this newsletter.
Classmates Who Have Transferred To The Eternal Duty
Our love and prayers go out to the family and friends of our classmates who have gone on before us. We will miss them, yet we can find comfort in knowing that one day we will all join them for the greatest of all reunions.

has also been received that Pam Pash (62) has also passed away.
If anyone has any more information regarding Pam's passing,
please let either Gary or Pat know.)
Look Who Is Looking For Who
From Valerie (Filiason) Katz (60) email@example.com
Thanks for your wonderful work and getting those updates. It always makes my heart skip to hear about our classmates who are no longer with us and we didn't get a chance to contact each other before. Have you any idea where Sandy Paul or Marion Irving might be? (Both women). They were class of '60. Also, Jerry Bijould or Bijold?
Good News We Want To Share
From William (Bill) English (57) firstname.lastname@example.org
Gary, the blurb I wrote about a girl writing a sailor in California worked. It is Lyn Peterson "55-'58. Her letter is attached; she said you can put it in the next edition.
Nelson??? My Nelson?
Hi Bill...maybe this is George Nelson? He was my mail-boyfriend for the three years I went to Bushy Park...(Lyn Peterson 55-58.)
He was in the Navy, in southern California, but I don't know what rank he was other than a sailor on board a ship that went to Japan once for sure! He sent me a pink gown and slippers made of silk! Isn't this something...if in fact this is "Nelson" then here is the rest of the story....
Last month I was home on my yearly leave (I am currently writing from Uzbekistan) and called my girlfriend of years back... (Seventh grade) in Arizona. She said George Nelson called her on the phone, the previous month, to say "hello" after 48+ years of not seeing/hearing from/about him!!! He was a senior in High School and I a freshman before I went to England. We wrote the three years, and then, because a lot changes... broke up within days of my return to meet him in California. I haven't heard from him all these years, but he asked her how/where I was. He must have been surprised to hear I am living in Central Asia most of the time!
Anyway, it is nice to read the Newspaper from our school days. I will retire? Stop working so hard in another nine months and return to Gilbert, Arizona to my home. I already told the renters to move out! Let me know if you think this is the Nelson! If it is you can send this along to Gary for the next edition. Best wishes, Lyn

I found another
classmate in this latest issue. I
know you work hard on each newsletter. Thank
you for all the time you put into it.
From Linda Shull McLaren (60) Lmclaren@inreach.com
Due to finding you I
have located Larry Wilson. We went with each other our whole time in
England. First love so to
speak. I called and left him a message and an email. He was blown away.
He had tried to find me over the years and had been on Classmates for 3
years. We talk each day, sometimes several times a day. This is just
amazing to both of us. We plan on getting together, but right now I am
in the midst of selling my home and moving. It just seems all of a
sudden we are back at Bushy Park. We do a lot of emailing. Thank you for
the information on Larry.
I was happily married
for 27 years and my husband died in January so I never had pursued
locating Larry until now and never did I dream it would be so easy. He
even lives in the same state my parents live in, not to far from them
actually and I was just up there before I located him.
From Judy Risler Covington (60) LCHS60@aol.com
Just wanted you guys to
know I would be delighted to take on this assignment (writing a Bushy
Park History).. And also wanted to thank you for your kind words. Writing has always been a passion of mine, and it's nice to
know my words please others in some way. (Actually, I would write even
if nobody else ever read a word. My
contribution to egotism. Ho
Ho.) Anyway, just let me
know if there's anything particular you would like as far as input,
style, etc. Otherwise, I'll
get started right away on a draft, and keep you all apprised of my
progress. There are some t's to cross and i's to dot historically
speaking, but I think I have a good enough handle on it to begin.
I will welcome anyone's assistance, input, yeas/nays, I'd
appreciate it. Let's roll!

Bill Burch (57)
I've been hearing from
Harold Fergusson from time to time.
I think maybe something's happening to my memory... I was class
of '57 although my last year at Bushy was '56.
We went from there to Clinton-Sherman AFB and I graduated from
Cordell High School. I'm now about halfway between Lockport and Joliet,
IL and it looks like I've stuck. When
I got here in '69 I had never lived anywhere for longer than 18 months. I still look back at my time in England as the best time of
You have no idea
(perhaps you do) how nice it is to be sorting through SPAM and find
something you really want to read.
Thanks for contacting me. The newsletter came through just great!
I've been browsing through it ever since it got here.
I can't believe how "far out of it" I must have been!
The only people with
whom I was familiar were your (just from our recent e-mail exchanges),
Bill English (from my contacts with Harold Fergusson) and Ruth Lund. Ruth was one of my sister Marilyn's best friends and oh, how
I envied the time they had together!
I didn't remember that she had come over on the United States,
but I shouldn't have been surprised.
There was a lady with class!
She did everything right.
We made three trips with
MSTS. The first was to
Germany on a ship called The Berry.
Our trip back from Germany was on the Alexander M. Patch.
That was in Bremerhaven when we showed up on the Berry and we all
Oohed and Aahed over it. Our
trip to England was on The Butner.
I've heard that the Butner was related to the Alexander M. Patch,
but I do remember that trip as the most fun.
The Butner still had the anti-aircraft guns mounted and as a
fourteen year old boy in love with military hardware, I was in hawg
heaven! We had rougher seas on that trip, but it was the first trip
where I didn't get seasick. When
the seas got rough, a bunch of us would head up as far forward as we
could get (below decks) and jump when the ship crested a wave. When we
came down the ship was no longer where it was when we left.
Our last trip across the pond was in the oldest C-118 (like a
DC-6) MATS had in transatlantic service.
We caught a tailwind and made such good time that we were able to
bypass Newfoundland and head right on in.
I think I heard that it was the first time a C-118 had made it
all the way from Prestwick Scotland to New York in one jump.
From Kathie de Russy (60) firstname.lastname@example.org
You certainly struck a
memory when you brought up the MSTS way to go to England. Is there
another mode of travel? Luxury to the MAX!
Going to England there
was a family who never left the cabin, from gangplank to gangplank. The
whole family was sick. All the seaworthy families took turns trying to
take care of them. Coming home, the trip was made in a raging storm. I
was one of the few still staggering around on deck. The dining
experience of trying to catch the food as it slid past you on the table
is not forgotten. I was warned not to look at the horizon as it dipped
past the ports. Who had time to look? I was trying to juggle hot soup!
Assigned to England from
Maxwell AFB we departed NYC on the USS BUTNER, that was the smallest
ship of the fleet. Nine days later we arrived in Southhampton.
On another ship our household goods arrived at the same location,
they were promptly dropped into the harbor through a faulty net.
Ok, so lots of things
that I never liked were lost. USAA
claim to replace memories and treasures was made. After the station in
London we moved to Wheelus AFB, to be moved to Torrejon a year later.
We took the "Med
Cruise" on the USS BUCKNER as we were moving toward Torrejon.
Yes, we took the long way, scenic route. The remaining household
goods were loaded onto another ship hopefully to be transported to
Spain. They were promptly dropped into Tripol harbor. Thus, my copy of
Vapor Trails remains in the Med as my tribute to life in Libya! USAA
somehow believed that our household goods had been dumped again!
After our tour in Spain
we boarded the USS Rose to come home, then called ZI, new name CONUS.
Our beautiful Lady in the Harbor couldn't have seemed more of a refuge
to any other pilgrim. It had been a wonderful adventure, but I was so
happy to be on home territory.
How did the rest of the
Bushites get to England? I hope the rest of our buddies will contribute
their stories. I know they will be welcomed by all of us. Come on, I
know I'm not the only one who had such unique experiences! Share!
Thanks for all the
connections that the Tales have afforded us.
From Tony Taylor (58)
The last week in August
was a time for old acquaintances for the Bushy Park 58 crowd here in the
Northwest. First Fred Gruin and a college buddy of his came to the
Taylor household in Sammamish (east of Seattle) for an overnighter while
"chasing trains." Fred, who is retired from the Department Of
Transportation, has always had a "thing" about trucks and
trains. After graduation from Bushy Park we all thought that Fred was
going to college to become a big shot in the trucking industry.
According to Fred he tried his dream vocation in private industry for
awhile, but in the end he found more satisfaction and fun working for
the Government enforcing the truck industry.
But Fred's other love
was trains...mostly diesel trains.
Every so often he takes off around the country and watches trains
pass by and sometimes snaps a few photos. Ask him any question about
diesel engines; Fred will tell you. This year Fred's quest was chasing
trains from Denver to the Northwest and then down to northern California
before heading east again. Fred's home is in Albany, NY, but his college
buddy, who is just as crazy about trains, lives in Colorado and owns an
RV which became home for the guys for 3 weeks.
Anyway, it was great fun
to see Fred again and to have him share a meal with us in our home.
After supper I took the guys to an outdoor railroad museum in a little
town nearby. The collection of engines and rail cars in Snoqualmie
belongs to a local railroad club. There were turn-of-the-century (that
is, the 20th Century) steam engines and engines with snow blowers on the
front. Some of the engines and rail cars were from the days of the
logging and mining industry which was so much of the Northwest 75-100
years ago. There is even a WWI Army hospital car on the siding. Fred and
I took a moment to have our photo taken while standing on one of the
The following morning
Fred and friend were off to see what they could see in the way of trains
while crossing the Snoqualmie Pass and then down toward the Columbia
River Valley. The plan was to meet up with Fred Buhler, also of Bushy
Park '58, in Nevada City, CA, a couple of days later. (Gitta and I
visited Fred Buhler at his Nevada City home last May as reported in an
earlier letter.) As of this writing I will assume that the two Freds did
meet and will report same to Bushy Tales.
A few days after Fred
Gruin's visit, Gitta and I drove up to Deception Pass at Whidbey Island,
WA, to picnic with Kris (Ludlow) Ravitz and her husband, Ted. Kris and
Ted live in a cute cabin in the woods in Clinton at the southern end of
Whidbey Island. We see Kris a couple times a year now that we too live
in the Northwest. They recently returned from a trip to Tibet and China
with their daughter. They were full of stories and photos from their
fascinating adventure. Kris reports that their son is still with Cruise
West where he started out several years ago as a cruise ship chef and is
now a front-office guy. Kris and I had our photo taken at a lovely park
next to Deception Pass. The last photo I had of Kris was taken when we
were in Paris during the spring break of our senior year at Bushy Park.
Chuck Stewart remembers that week in Paris too, don't you Chuck? You,
me, and three gals from Central High off touring the Left Bank and the
coffee bars.... Would you let your sons and daughters do that now? No
way! But such were the mores of the '50s. Wow, Paris in the spring and
Brussels (Worlds Fair) for our Senior Class Trip!! And then there was
the four-week bicycle trip on the Continent that Rick Henslee ('58) and
I took the previous summer with our stops is Germany and along the
Riviera to see former friends (gals) from Bushy Park, but that's another
story for another time.
By the time this letter
gets to press Gitta and I, along with our son Roger, his lovely wife
Leigh, and our twin grandsons, Miles and Beck, will be sitting on the
beach at Hilton Head Island, SC, where we have been going for the past
23 years no matter where we live. There is something about the beaches
on the Right Coast which we find more appealing than those of the Left
Coast.... At least while we are there in early October the humidity will
be gone and the waters of the Gulf Stream will still make body surfing a
great sport for this ol' body. By the way, for those of you who follow
my ventures, it has been just a year since the doc removed my left femur
and replaced it with a titanium "bone." Since then, no cancer
on the bone, and I don't expect none! Ever!!

I came back to the
states on the U.S.S. Butner. May
have even spelt that name wrong. Haven't
heard anything about that one yet.
Unfortunately, I don't remember much about it.
A submarine did surface near us and some of the guys came out and
waved at us. I had pictures
but I lent them to another student many years ago and they were never
returned. She has passed
away now so I will never get them back.

Zumwalt (56) firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of the other
readers mentioned the ship that they went to England on. My brother,
mother and I went over and came back on the same luxurious ship - MSTS
Maurice Rose - a great experience.
We went over in June and the trip was not too bad except for my
"little" brother who was deathly ill most of the way.
But mostly the weather was good and we even got to see some
whales. Coming back in 1953 was a different story.
We shipped out of Southampton on December 12.
The north Atlantic is not kind to ships in the dead of winter and
the whole trip was really rough. The
ship had APs stationed in the halls to help the passengers in case they
fell, and I remember seeing one poor AP upchucking into his helmet.
We had to hold him up! It
was a very uncomfortable voyage - The whole ship just reeked and no one
was very hungry! Coming back into New York harbor in the early morning,
our ship almost hit a tanker and the crew threw the engines in reverse
so abruptly that lots of passengers fell out of their bunks and got
badly bruised and banged up. Perfect
ending to a perfect crossing! We
got to the states just in time for Christmas with my grandmother in
Connecticut. Those were the days!
From Donald H. Crews
I promised a "teddy
boy" story for the next issue of Bushy Tales. I hope that this
little story will rekindle Classmate memories, which they will share.
You will remember from my last story, that I enjoyed going to the movies in Golders Green, London (NW11). Well! I was on my way home one afternoon, and could see a group of about seven Teddy Boy (and Girls), on the opposite side of the street. They were clearly looking in my direction, and their arm and hand movements indicated an interest in me. As I walked along, the group moved across the Finchley Road, so that they were on my side of the street, and in my path. (Remember, "zip" guns, and gloves with razors in the fingertips?) All of these came to mind as I, the purveyor of American Ideals, strolled down the sidewalk. This was going to be a "RUMBLE", just like "Battle Ship Potemkin", (from the Film Club).
(Have you ever noticed how "Yanks" seemed to stand out in a group of "not yanks"? You know! Bigger, Stronger, Taller, more Colorful.) Well! I stuck out my "Yankee" chest and moved purposefully onward, toward the group blocking my way. I get to the group. I begin shouldering my way through, and I'm stopped by a stiff arm to my chest. "OI! You're ah yank antchyah, says one? Yeah! Responds I, ready to take a few of these blighters with me. Well! says he, me and me mates was wondering, "Is Hopalong Cassidy real"? BUMMER!
I don't get beat up. I
don't get a chance to defend the "open and free capitalistic
society." I don't get
my colorful American shirt dirty. Life is not always good.

My family and I sailed
from Bremmerhaven, Germany to the US on the USS Goethels in September
1956. We had been in
Wiesbaden for three years. Anyway,
seems like the trip home took us 13 days.
My vivid memories of the trip? Playing canasta and monopoly;
falling in love with a cute sailor; a sailor sharing a piece of pizza
with me; close quarters; the ship changing Captains to steer us through
the English Channel; dolphins; everyone getting seasick except me; and
seeing the glorious Statue of Liberty. Incidentally, the full name of
the man for whom the ship was named was George Washington Goethels.
Why I remember that, I'll never know.
Anyway, thanks for the memories!
Where Are They?
This is the sixth
part of the list of who we are looking for in the Class of ’62.
Note: The next three years
(2003 – 2005) will be the 50th anniversaries for the 1953,
1954 and 1955 classes. Are
any of these classes planning a 50th reunion?
Should we look at having one big one to cover all three years?
Just something for everyone to think about.
Let me know.

Insani (60) Pam@ManateeBlood.org
I was a 1960 graduate of Bushy Park. I left to go back stateside in 1961 after completing one year of college in an English college. I kept in touch with a few classmates over the years but did lose touch after awhile. I did hear from Frank Janusz and Mr. Law for a long time. As the years passed I ended up in Florida where my parents retired after many years in the military. Found that through all my travels I love Florida the best. I had contact with Judy Risler (Covington) about 8 years ago. She found me like she has found so many of us. We met in Sarasota and had a good long talk. We still keep in touch. They have had several reunions over the past few years but they always seem to be at an inappropriate time for me. Maybe one of these days. I have enjoyed reading all the Bushy Tales and find out where everyone is now. Keep up the good work. I have been back to Europe a few times over the years but this past March I went back to London for the first time since 1961. I must say I only recognized the major attractions.
Everything was very
different. I also want to
say the high light of the trip was getting to see two good English
friends I have kept in touch with over all these year.
They took the train up from Hertfordshire to London as we were
stationed at Chicksands AFB near Bedford, England.
It was great seeing them. We
even recognized each other. They
were very good years and sad ones as well with all those seniors killed
in Munich coming home for Christmas break. A lot of good friends.
I am a human resource director now in a small blood bank and I
have been in human resources for about 25 years.
If anyone gets to
Sarasota please look me up I would be happy to renew all the old tales.
By the way I have photos of about 7 or 8 gals on the roof of the
dorm at Bushy Park. July
Risler, is one of them along with the rest of those in that group.

This and That
From Gary Baldwin (54) email@example.com
I sent a few words for
publication in the June newsletter about the SS United States and promised
a follow-up with pictures of the ship in its current condition.
I have since heard from quite a number of our colleagues who
traveled on this ship in the past, so another reporting still seems
In June, I was privileged
to be a guest at the 50th Anniversary Celebration in Philadelphia of the
launching of the SS United States. The
Independence Seaport Museum, in concert with the Steamship Historical
Society of America and the SS United States Foundation of Philadelphia,
hosted the event. Attendance
was limited primarily to those interested in saving this ship and
individuals who were former crew members or passengers.
Approximately 200 persons
attended the morning event that began with a presentation featuring ships
of the United States Lines, to include the SS United States, SS
Washington, SS Manhattan, and SS America.
Prominently displayed in the museum's lobby was a special
photograph exhibit featuring these vessels from collections held at the
Independence Seaport Museum. Numerous
artifacts from the SS United States were exhibited by private owners and
the museum; e.g., sailing bulletins, menus, passenger photographs, serving
china, etc. I am sure many students from Bushy Park sailed aboard one of
these ships. My trip to
England was aboard the SS Washington, in late January of 1952. Minus the exquisite luxury of the SS United States, the SS
Washington was still configured as it was during W.W.II to serve as a
military troop carrier.
During the morning session
we listened to informative speakers, such as author William Talley, who
presented facts, many of which were little known to the public, about the
ship's life from the drawing board, through her service years as the
"premier" trans-Atlantic vessel, to her final resting place in
Philadelphia. We also viewed
selected film presentations which traced the ship's life and the
substantial marketing effort made to promote this passenger liner. Seeing
these old films was a special treat for the group.
Aside from persons who
formerly had passage on this ship, the audience held a couple of other
special guests. Elizabeth
Fletcher, author of the children's book "Grandfathers Ship, The S.S.
United States" and the granddaughter of the ship's designer and chief
architect William Francis Gibbs, was there to autograph her recent book
heralding the lifetime achievements of her grandfather, not the least of
which was the building of the SS United States.
Also present was a former crewman, an engineering mate whose
responsibilities included the propulsion system.
Despite his advanced age, you could still sense his pride in having
been associated with the significantly advanced design of the ship's
In the early afternoon we
boarded the Holiday tour Boat "Elizabeth" for a ride up the
harbor to view the old ship up close and personal.
From this "tug's-eye-view" we could really sense the size
and, I am sad to report, the deterioration of the ship. As you can see from the pictures included with this article,
saving this ship might be an enormously expensive endeavor.
The narrated tour boat excursion also included a visit to the
former New York Shipbuilding Corporation, builders of some of the United
States Lines finest ships, and concluded with a visit to the impressive
battleship USS New Jersey docked in Camden, NJ.
The day ended for this
group, as it had begun, full of enthusiasm and hope that this small part
of American history will not go silently to its resting place. On June 3, 1999 - the SS United States was officially placed
on the National Register of Historic Places.
Rest assured, I will keep my eye on the results of the effort to save this ship.

I was not so lucky as to
have traveled to England on a ship. My

and dad met us there. From
there it was an all night train trip to a small town called Down Ampney. My brother Mike and I lived in the dorm for the first four

I was reading about the
history, or lack thereof of Bushy Park.
I agree with the person who left in the dark and is still in the
dark but I do remember being told that originally in W.W.II that was the
site of Gen. Eisenhower's Headquarters...I do not know if this is true.
I went back to England about 8 yrs. ago and was told that nothing
was left but also remember that in 8th grade our history teacher took us
to the Mansion, castle, with the maze that was within walking distance of
the school. Does anyone
remember that? We went there often.
There is also an
organization of DoDDS Faculty and they could probably lend some
information, as they would have obviously taught there...any teachers on
our list from the early years that might know something. Just some
rambling thoughts on this.
By the way, I took the
newsletter last month with me to read on the trip to Minnesota. My husband and I are a commuting couple; he lives in DC and I
live in Charleston SC. We met
up at a flight in Detroit and he read the newsletter from end-to-end on
the flight and thoroughly enjoyed it.
He is used to my tales of Bitburg and found all the stories in the
Bushy newsletter so interesting. He is amazed at the connection all
overseas brats seem to have, whether we knew each other or not.
He was raised a civilian so until he became a part of my Bitburg
search he had no idea about overseas schools and the close connection we
all feel to one another.

In looking at the 53 class
list, by Reed Muller's, name it says "deceased". As Mark Twain said, the rumors of his death are greatly
exaggerated. In fact I had lunch with him yesterday.
Reed and I were Lieutenants in the US Air Force stationed at RAF Bruntingthorpe, Leicestershire 1960-1962. We met yesterday in Salisbury, Maryland to discuss old times and he mentioned attending Central High School at Bushy Park in the 50s. Near Hampton Court Palace he said. He is not much into computers so I decided to do a Google search on his behalf and your page came up.
The '53 pictures are great
and I will print them out and send them snail mail to Reed and Emma. I'm
sure they will enjoy them.
