Typical behaviour from 11 year old boys, I guess and with hindsight, a bit of provocation from the teacher. ;)


Present indicative per chance? ;) Or perhaps the conjunctive if you are from East London :gmc:

Something along these lines? Quo fas et gloria ducunt ubique.

When I was 11 we didn't know words like that. ;)

Oh! I can't remember that much detail. Took me ten minutes to recollect whether the word I wanted was declension or conjugation. :confused:

Presumably the conjunctive would have an 'a'?

Definitely now believe that one of our latin teachers was a bit of a pervert. Hanky up his sleeve and very fragrant. Rather unusual in the early '50s.
He spent a lot of time getting us to read the dirty bits of the Latin and Greek poets from which he must have got some sort of vicarious thrill.

It's all forgotten now, pushed out by all the technical stuff of later years.
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

Derek and Clive, Live. Oh dear!

How did such gratuitous filth get published at the time? :shock:

One or two funny bits in the less explicit tracks though. I thought the guy being encouraged to jump from the burning buiding was extremely funny. :clap:

"Jump, you ***er, jump"

Ah yes, I remember it well ;) Noy quite Latin though.
