I'm looking for correspondence with OEs, current Etonians and Harrovians (both past and present). You can contact me at [email protected]. I would love to talk to you! Thank you so much!

Everyone asks them same question. I'm not only just interested in OEs but more specifically -if possible- current Etonians. I take great interest in Eton and thus I wish to be able to correspond with someone from Eton or Harrow. (Eton preferably.) I also want to know more about the Lord's match played between the both public schools if possible. Are you from Eton?

I know a few people who are at or who have graduated from your so called big 5/7 in the other schools... if you're a girl and you go to a public school, it's more than likely you will end up at a social with a couple of them. The Lords match is played in the last few weeks of june. it should be easy to get tickets for that....... you just pay at the gate. it's advertised as well.

Such would be dreadfully impossible for me. I live in Singapore so that's miles away, across continents and across the ocean. Heh

I know that my school, Winchester (superior to both Eton and Harrow ) used to play Eton at Lords. However, having set the Lords changing rooms alight Winchester was banned so the match is no longer held.

Has it not possibly occurred to you that a great number of OEs and Harrovians probably see this forum as somewhat beneath them and that u have embarked upon a thankless task if u are hoping for many many replies - this is all unsubstantiated and conjecture on my part but it is an interesting way of looking at the situation is it not?

I have a couple of friends who went to Eton. They went to my prep school St Mary's Hall, Stonyhurst, Lancashire. I went to Stonyhurst College, Lancashire. The top rugby playing school in the country.

Why you want to know people from Eton is beyond belief when you live on the other side of the world.

There is only hope if one tries. Without trying, there will be zero possibility. Try and hope on that one percent and we might be surprised. Do you not agree?

Anyway, there seems no rationale that a 14 year old on the other side of the globe decides to chase or correspond with Eton boys in Britain. However, is there rationale to the fact that a fan from Britain would support and learn about an American singer/popstar (for that matter?), who is also across the oceans? Do you not agree there is less chance of meeting that popstar, as compared to an Eton boy?

I agree with your point that OEs and Harrovians might consider it below them to visit this forum, not nonetheless, there is no harm in trying.

I am infatuated with the gentlemanly charm of the Etonians, who I have met, and am looking to know more. Is that a crime itself? Perhaps this is just a childish phase of a girl's adolescence, do not know.

lol. that boy in Master & Commander who gets his arm amputated is an Etonian, lord blakeney i think. and the other young midshipman who gets killed towards the end, lord callamy, has only just left harrow. another advantage of public schools .... film directors _often_ come looking around for young actors.

Yeah, I do know that Lord Blakeney (Max Pirkis) is Etonian. Thanks for the info though. I subscribe to the Eton Chronicle and he was featured there in an exclusive interview as well!

For all your maturity, you do not even know the spelling of Pitiful. It is such a pity indeed that one fails to be able to spell. What type of education did you receive, really?
