Do you remember Mr Ladell? 

We are asking for all boys who were at Walhampton in the 1950s to get in touch and send a birthday message to Mr Marcus Ladell, former organist, music teacher and choir master.

Philip Thornton has instigated a collection of birthday wishes and memories to go to his former teacher and would like you to join in if you remember him!

Please send your message to
