COMMANDER CHARLES ARTHUR HOWESON – colleague of Prince Philip and Prince Charles – charged with buggery

 

Mar 3, 2017

Police say the charges are two counts of buggery, one of attempt buggery and 12 counts of indecent assault.

These matters relate to 10 alleged victims, all of whom are male.

At the time of the alleged offences one was aged 14/15, another was aged between 16 to 18 and eight were described as being in their early 20s.

Howeson was raised in Mevagissey in Cornwall, joined the Royal Navy in 1967 before making his fortune as a property developer and launching his long career in the public, private and voluntary sector.

Howeson is vice president for life of the Plymouth Drake Foundation, a charity he founded in 2008 to help communities in the city.

In creating the foundation, from which he stepped down in 2012, Howeson established a so-called “charity of charities” designed to support individuals and groups through grants.

The jewel in the foundation’s crown is a £10 annual trust membership for 10,000 Plymothians.

Yep, the very same. The most eccentric XO I ever served with :-)
Edited to add, having seen John’s post above it was indeed the Cleopatra not Montrose! I was DWEO from 86 to 88.
He left the RN to try and become an MP but didn’t quite make it. Its one of about 2 reasons the RN are obliged to let you back in again. He would have been huge in the Commons – and kept the bar afloat. :stout:
Cannot argue with that. Would like to have seen a Chief Whip who impose anything on him! He was there (Gib) towards the end of my time and certainly made the social arena and ONH a better place to be. Without ever being near the ship I had heard he was a legend during his time in Cleo.
Cleo was from 84 to 86 so it seems we served together John.

It is believed Mr Howeson, aged 61, is the only figure on the list who was actually a naval officer.

Ultimately it will involve me being an ambassador to the Royal Naval Reserves.

“I plan to conduct regular visits to Royal Naval units and sites in Plymouth as part of my role.

“I will also expect to be given up-to-date briefings on Royal Navy affairs.”

It’s business as usual for Prince Andrew

  • Thursday 10 March 2011

Buckingham Palace today moved to shore up Prince Andrew’s image by announcing a series of engagements with British businesses.

Prince Andrew met the Queen on Tuesday following the controversy over his friendship with convicted child sex offender Jeffery Epstein. The Standard understands she gave her son her “full support”.

Charles Howeson, who will host a lunch for the Duke (Prince Andrew) at the Plymouth Business Area Association, said that he was a major asset to UK firms hoping to trade abroad. Mr Howeson added: “He has been doing this longer than civil servants and probably longer than many company chairmen, and he has built up a network of contacts that is incomparable.”

Rear-Admiral Sir Richard Trowbridge, who died on Sunday aged 83, was the first officer to rise from boy sailor to captain of the Royal Yacht Britannia and the last Briton to serve as Governor of Western Australia.

A personal friend of Prince Philip since they had served in the British Pacific Fleet at the end of the Second World War, he had an unusually long-serving and successful term as Flag Officer Royal Yachts from 1970 to 1975 when Britannia

Trowbridge was commissioned in 1940 and served at sea throughout the Second World War. He was in the destroyer Wakeful after the end of hostilities with Japan when she transported prisoners of war to Sydney; and Lady Mountbatten was in charge of repatriation. Trowbridge was mentioned in dispatches.

This was when he met Prince Philip, who was first lieutenant of another destroyer in the 27th Destroyer Flotilla. Together they were in Tokyo Bay when the Japanese signed their surrender after atomic bombs had been dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Trowbridge was appointed KCVO in 1983.

Father Sam Philpott – Party to celebrate Priest’s MBE

July 31, 2012

Father Sam Philpott was ‘overwhelmed’ that parishioners at St Peters Church in Wyndham Square threw a party for him inviting along many people he had worked with over the years.

Father Philpott has been at the forefront of pioneering projects including the Ship homeless hostel, Plymouth Mediation and The Millfields Economic Development Trust, which he chairs. He also worked with sex offenders to try to get them to face up to their offences and lay down roots so they weren’t constantly travelling round.

He has been involved in schemes including Wheels, which encouraged children to work on car repairs, and Stables, which taught children how to interact more effectively by teaching them activities such as theatre and rock climbing.

He is currently involved in the Widening Horizons project which encourages children’s aspirations.

And he has worked with business leader Charles Howeson on the Drake Foundation which is “raising sums for good things in the city”.

He also sent out a huge thanks to Charles Howeson.

Biology teacher Freedman, 54, took early retirement from the school in 2008, but continued to be employed as a sailing teacher and was involved with the Royal Navy section of the school’s Combined Cadet Force up until his arrest in 2010.

Regarded as a pillar of the community he was honoured with the Queen’s Jubilee Medal in 2000, the Cadet Force Medal in 2002, and a clasp for that medal in 2009.

THERE was a strong Naval element at the annual Lord Lieutenant’s Reserve Forces and Cadets presentations for Merseyside. Not only was RN HQ Merseyside chosen as the venue, but Reserve Forces and Cadets Association Vice Chairman Cdr Cedric Loughran also deputised at the last moment to make the presentations. Three of the main recipients were shining examples of the best of Sea Cadet spirit. As well as teaching biology at the Merchant Taylors’ School in Crosby, Stephen Freedman (48) also dons the dark blue uniform of a lieutenant commander to lead the school’s Combined Cadet Force Naval Section. His citation for a Lord Lieutenant’s Certificate highlighted the fact that Stephen has filled this demanding role with great distinction, and is also second in command of the school’s cadet force. For many years he has run the CCF RN Camp at HMS Bristol at Whale Island, founded the annual Cadet Forces Regatta, staffed a yacht crewed by cadets sailing from Scotland to Norway, and runs the Bridge Trainer for the RN Cadet Camp at Dartmouth each summer.

Mr Freedman, who has been decorated for his naval work in schools, also occasionally took activities at Liverpool College in Mossley Hill.

From 1991 to 2008, he ran the Royal Naval Section of the Combined Cadet Force at Merchant Taylors’.

His expertise includes dinghy and power boat instruction.

And, in 2006, he was awarded the Lord Lieutenant’s Certificate given sparingly for military service beyond the call of duty. At the time, he said: “It has been the most rewarding part of my career and I like to think that my involvement has not only opened up opportunities for our cadets, but for myself as well.”

“Mr Freedman was an able and experienced member of the biology department who retired from teaching in July, 2008.

“The school has no further comment to make at this time, as the investigation is ongoing.”

The criminal investigation comes three months after a jury found 25-year-old Hannah McIntyre not guilty of having sex with a 16-year-old pupil while employed as a classics teacher at the school.

Dating back to 1620, the independent school is consistently among the country’s best performing.

Paul Burrell/Royal Yacht Britannia orgy scandal

In 1981, 11 members of the crew of the Queen’s yacht ‘Britannia’ were charged.


Paul Burrell (pictured fifth from right) was part of a orgy on the Royal Yacht Britannia, his agent claims. None of the people in the above photo of the Britannia are thought to have been involved in the reported orgy

Reports from 1981 show that a trial against naval members were held in secret, which prompted rumours of a cover-up, which officials denied.

The men involved were accused of ‘disgraceful conduct of a cruel, indecent or unnatural kind’, and sailors were arrested after X-rated photos were found during a drugs raid.

The Queen was kept up to date on disciplinary proceedings during the case, and Prince Phillip was shown a special report on the case, the Sun reported.

Buckingham Palace would not comment on claims that the Queen knew Mr Burrell was involved in the orgy.

The Queen reinstated me and said: ‘Paul, I am so glad to have you back. Let’s put this unsavoury business behind us.’

Mr Burrell has never talked about his sexuality even though it was well known within royal circles that he was gay.

In 1983 he wed Maria Cosgrove, a maid to the Duke of Edinburgh

Paul and Maria Burrell met while they were both working at Buckingham Palace, with Maria serving as the Duke of Edinburgh’s maid, and married in 1984.

An established tradition suggested one of them should give up their job with the Royal Family, but the Queen made an exception for them, allowing both to remain in Royal service.

Burrell, who entered Royal Service at age 18, as a Palace footman, became the Queen’s personal footman a year later.
 

Burrell was the only non-family member to be present at Diana’s private burial at the Spencer estate Althorp.

In 1993 she wrote a letter to him that claimed the Prince of Wales was plotting to kill

Is this Burrell? Press & palace spin story that he was sacked?

The commander of the Royal Britannia yacht, Sir Paul Greening, was promoted after the scandal.


The Queen Mother In A Gondola Venice Italy With Her Is Sir Paul Greening

1981 COMMANDER OF THE ROYAL BRITANNIA:

  Rear-Admiral Sir Paul Greening, commanded the Royal Yacht Britannia in her heyday, and afterwards succeeded to the 500-year-old office of Master of the Royal Household. 
He was appointed an Extra Equerry to the Queen in 1983 and Master of the Household of the Sovereign from 1986 to 1992.[1]

As Flag Officer Royal Yachts from February 1981 to August 1985, he was responsible for the vessel’s safety and efficiency, and for hosting receptions on behalf of the Queen at events held on board in support of British industry.

Greening’s first days in Britannia were spoilt by the dismissal (under the then law) of several homosexuals: the tabloid press had a field day, but he showed his imperturbability in dealing with it. A natural courtier, he had a boyish charm; the puckish impression given by his permanently raised eyebrows disguised an understanding of people, a mastery of detail and an absolute loyalty to the Crown.

As Master of the Household from 1986 to 1992 Greening was a successful head of staff of all the Queen’s palaces, responsible for 250 chefs, sommeliers, event planners, craftsmen, pages and footmen, housekeepers and postmen.

He was a Younger Brother of Trinity House.

The ‘gay mafia’ of the royal household

09/11/2002

Paul Burrell

The rumours have been washing through Fleet Street. Queen Elizabeth intervened in Paul Burrell’s trial, they alleged, to avoid his going into the witness box at the Old Bailey and revealing tales of homosexual rape, male orgies and a gay mafia in control of the royal household.

That there is at least some truth in them has only fanned the gossips’ flames. Prince Charles acknowledges running up a legal bill of at least £100,000 (?160,000) on behalf of a trusted member of staff accused of raping another man. The allegation was widely known in the household, as the Spectator magazine, a staunch defender of the monarchy, reported.

1997

Burrell received the Royal Victorian Medal


09/11/2002

Twenty years ago, Buckingham Palace investigated an alleged homosexual orgy on the royal yacht Britannia, when Burrell was a footman. One member of staff was required to resign.

Some whisper that Burrell was implicated in those events; others mention a telephone call to Scotland Yard after Burrell’s arrest. The Australian caller described “alleged aspects of Burrell’s private conduct that might not entirely tally with his public image”, according to the Spectator.

“a suspicion is taking root that the homosexual mafia that infiltrates the court has had a criminal case stopped to protect the prince from sordid revelations concerning one of its own.

Buckingham Palace butler ‘ran paedophile sex ring while working for the Royal Family’

A former Buckingham Palace butler has been unmasked as a sexual predator who  ran a paedophile ring while serving the Royal Family.

Bachelor Paul Kidd, 55, groomed at least one of his teenage victims for sex by taking him for tea with the Queen Mother at Clarence House, it has emerged.

In 1976 he was appointed as butler to the Queen at Buckingham Palace and served there for six years until being transferred to Clarence House where he served the Queen Mother.

During his years in Royal service, he was said to have met and looked after three American Presidents including Jimmy Carter and Ronald Regan plus many other Heads of State from around the world.

He also appeared on stage with Hollywood actor Robin Williams at the Nemacolin Spa & Resort Centre in the USA.

On the last day of his trial the Queen suddenly remembered that Diana did give him some gifts strange that…

Rape tape that set royal alarm bells ringing

As Princess Diana sat by his hospital bedside, the royal manservant had no idea a tape was secretly running inside her handbag.

During their 30-minute conversation, Diana listened sympathetically as he made the astonishing allegation that he had been raped by another male member of the palace staff.

Paul Burrell knew both the ‘victim’ – who is a close friend of the former butler – and the man accused of the violent homosexual assault.

The alleged rapist works closely with Charles.

Last night the Prince was said to be terrified that the man could be identified.

That fear of exposure was increasingly being seen as a possible explanation for the dramatic last-minute royal intervention that led to the collapse of the Old Bailey trial last week.

The Royal Family were terrified that, once Burrell took the witness stand, he would divulge sensational and hugely-damaging secrets – in particular, the existence of the ‘rape-tape’ recording.

It was the explosive tape police were desperately seeking when they raided Burrell’s Cheshire home searching for the so-called ‘Crown Jewels’.

A Scotland Yard inquiry into the alleged rape took place at the same time as the Burrell theft investigation and both were led by the same police officer, Maxine de Brunner.

During the police investigation, former members of the Royal Household were interviewed in intimate detail about the alleged incident and asked ‘prurient questions’ about Charles himself.

The man allegedly assaulted, who has a wife and children from whom he is separated, has since left the royal household with a £50,000 payoff and, as with all palace staff, was required to sign a confidentiality agreement.

At the time several senior royal aides carried out an internal palace inquiry and reported back to Prince Charles and his solicitor Fiona Shackleton.

Charles – said to regard his aide as a ‘loyal and necessary person’ – took the unprecedented step of employing one of the country’s top law firms, Kingsley Napley, to defend him against the rape allegations.

Such was his concern for the servant that Charles is understood to have phoned the Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir John Stevens when the inquiry was launched.

Just over two weeks after Jimmy Savile emerged from his heart operation, Princess Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris. He was invited to the funeral service at Westminster Abbey but was too weak to attend.

In our final interview, I asked Savile again about his relationships with the royals. ‘What you’ve got to realise is how many books have been written about them by people who don’t really know them,’ he said. ‘Paul Burrell and people like that.’

I put it to him that having worked as Diana’s butler for ten years, Burrell must have surely known her better than most. ‘Yes, he did,’ said Savile, suddenly changing his tune.

‘I helped him get out of his court case.’

In 2002, Burrell was charged with the theft of items belonging to the Princess of Wales but the trial collapsed when it emerged the Queen had spoken to him and a public interest immunity certificate was presented to the court.

‘That was something else,’ smiled Savile, leaning back in his chair, eyes tightly closed as if mentally picturing the next brick being laid on the wall.

‘Nobody could get him off the hook. The entire world had him on the hook. He fell out with [Diana’s] trustees … Paul was very upset about this and because he was so upset, he was a danger, you see.

So they invented this thing that he’d half-inched some of her gear, which he hadn’t.’

Colin Tucker, steward to Fiona Woolf, Fettesgate and the Scottish ‘Magic Circle’ Affair, and Wider Networks – Part 1

the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (the trial of a former teacher at which will take place in early 2015), and the City of London School for Girls (whose former trumpet teacher Helen Goddard was jailed in 2009 for abusing an underage girl, as detailed within this long post), there was a hitherto little commented-upon passage concerning an employee at Mansion House:

 

I believe it is appropriate to bring to your attention the report of an inquiry conducted in Scotland in 1993 relating to an allegation to pervert the course of justice. A current staff member at Mansion House, an employee of the Corporation, was referred to in that inquiry; the individual concerned was not in the employment of the Corporation during the time period mentioned in the report. Full details of the inquiry and its conclusions (at pages 106-107) are contained in the attached link to the full report (https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/228813/0377.pdf ). I can confirm that I have never discussed this issue with the individual and was unaware of the individual’s prior history until the matter was recently brought to my attention.

The individual in question is Anthony Colin Tucker, a former solicitor who has been steward to the Lord Mayor since the early 1990s. The report in question is W.A. Nimmo Smith QC and J.D. Friel,  In this audio interview, Tucker speaks about his work for the Lord Mayor in what is essentially a butler-like role, suggesting something rather closer than Woolf’s term ‘current staff member at Mansion House’ would imply.

The report refers to the now mostly forgotten almost 25-year old saga involving an alleged ‘Magic Circle’ within the Scottish legal establishment, in which gay judges were alleged to have given more lenient sentences to gay criminals because of fear of blackmail. Tucker’s own trial on charges of embezzlement, for which he was acquitted, was central to this affair; the trial came about after Tucker’s senior partner, Ian Walker, killed himself. One journalist, Graham Grant, Home Affairs Editor for the Scottish Daily Mail, reported on this connection this Saturday (October 25th, 2014), in this article below.

As mentioned by Grant, of central importance is the role of Tucker’s defence counsel, the late Robert Henderson QC. Henderson has been in the news again since his daughter Susie has claimed that she was abused by both him and the late former Scottish Solicitor General Sir Nicholas Fairbairn (Emma Cowing and Graham Grant, ‘I was raped aged 4 by top aide to Thatcher: Woman claims she was abused by senior Conservative MP who visited notorious guest house with paedophile Cyril Smith’, Daily Mail, August 14th, 2014), who has also been alleged to have been a visitor to the notorious Elm Guest House in Barnes, a key location for VIP guests to abuse young boys, said to have been delivered from care homes (‘Sir Nicholas Fairbairn in child abuse scandal link’, The Scotsman, July 13th, 2014). This has led to a renewed interest in the ‘magic circle’ allegations (see for example Jonathan Brocklebank, ‘A magic circle of judges, a sex abuse probe and the sinister truth about the Fettesgate scandal’, Daily Mail, August 14th, 2014), though until Grant no-one had made the connection with someone close to the Lord Mayor of London.

Tucker is also listed as a partner in a company entitled ‘LD Inns’, address 24 Howe Street, Edinburgh EH3 6TG, from March 9th 1988 to July 17th, 1989, together with a Burnett Walker and David Ben Aryeah. It turns out this was the notorious Laughing Duck gay bar (see Rory Knight Bruce, ‘Below the Law: It is a short walk from Edinburgh’s Court of Session to the Laughing Duck’, Spectator, January 27th, 1990), mentioned at various points in the 1993 report, and listed with a three star rating in the 1982 edition of Spartacus International Gay Guide for Gay Men; membership of Spartacus, which was run by Roman Catholic priest John Stamford, who was later convicted of sending pornographic material through the post, also notoriously gave discounts for stays at Elm Guest House, and championed PIE; Stamford also published PAN: A Magazine about Boy-Love

Tucker was also for seven years an elder at St Cuthbert’s, next to Edinburgh Castle (Bruce McKain, ‘Solicitor tells fraud trial his partner had hold over him’, Glasgow Herald, December 16th, 1989). Burnett Walker was also a director of a delicatessen, Victors of Edinburgh; Edinburgh-born David Ben-Aryeah worked for the Israeli military, as a travel agent, and was one of the first journalists to report on the Lockerbie disaster

Amongst other matters, this affair demonstrates the importance that the inquiry incorporates Scotland as well (and Northern Ireland, where the Kincora Boys’ Home scandal is said to have involved intelligence operatives from the mainland). Not only is Fairbairn alleged to have been linked to abusers in both England and Scotland, but also the Paedophile Information Exchange was itself founded in Scotland, in Glasgow in 1974 by Ian Campbell Dunn and Michael Hanson as an outgrowth of the Scottish Minorities Group, of which Fairbairn was himself honorary vice-president in the early 1970s (Guy Adams and Andrew Malone, ‘Revealed: The Full horrifying truth about Sir Nicholas Fairbairn – the other paedophile at Margaret Thatcher’s side’, Daily Mail

 

In the meantime, it is reported today that Fiona Woolf may have to face a second appearance before the Home Affairs Select Committee … it is important that Keith Vaz MP and other members of the committee also question her over this affair and whether it represents a significant conflict of interests.

Below I reproduce a wide range of articles from Tucker’s trial, through the course of the ‘Magic Circle’ and ‘Fettesgate’ affairs, up until the release of the report

Part 2 will include subsequent articles on the affair, the allegations of sexual abuse made in 2000 against Robert Henderson, then some obituaries of Henderson, followed by recent press articles which have revisited these affairs, relating to Henderson and Fairbairn. The Fettesgate affair related to the theft of a report by Detective Inspector Robert Orr on ‘Homosexuality and the Criminal Law’, relating to the possibility of a homosexual network in the legal profession, which can be read here. This is a complex and detailed affair which requires extensive reading.

ORGY on the Royal Yacht Britannia

  • The orgy aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia reportedly took place in 1981
  • The orgy supposedly involved members of the navy, who were later dismissed
  • Mr Burrell wasn’t arrested for the orgy, nor did he face criminal charges because he ‘was the Queen’s right hand man at that point’, Burrell’s agent said

‘Paul was there. But he wasn’t arrested or subjected to any sort of criminal charges because he was the Queen’s right hand man at that point.’

Ah, now I get it: If you’re Queenie’s right-hand man you can get away with blue murder!

11 Britannia Crewmen Charged In Sex Scandal 

The Britania charges happened on the same day as Dickens named PIE member/paedophile Sir Peter Hayman

11 sailors from the crew of Elizabeth II’s official yacht Britannia were charged with “disgraceful conduct of a cruel, indecent or unnatural kind”…
It was Britain’s second official sex scandal in less than 24 hours.
Earlier Wednesday, a former British ambassador to Canada, Sir Peter Hayman, was named as the senior civil servant previously reported involved with a child pornography group.
The Britannia cases were heard behind closed doors.

Alun tweeted:  Isn’t it just amazing that Theresa May knew nothing of this when she appointed Haver’s sister to head the CSA inquiry?

 


 

 

Shortly before Charles and Diana married on July 29, 1981, the Queen apparently suspended Burrell from his job as footman after he was implicated in a gay pornography ring on the Royal Yacht Britannia  – and only gave him his job back on the understanding that he would marry his now wife Maria (who worked for the Duke of Edinburgh). 

‘Because Paul was the Queen’s footman he was treated like royalty by the other staff and had his own maid.

Plymouth ex-detective said Cyril Smith child abuse probe mirrors Goad inquiry

A FORMER Plymouth detective who helped bring paedophile William Goad to justice said she is not surprised Met officers may have been told to halt their inquiry into child abuse by Cyril Smith and other public figures.

Recent news reports claim investigators were ordered to hand over evidence and quit their inquiry into the Liberal MP after his arrest.

Smith was held during a 1980s probe into alleged sex parties with teenage boys in south London, a former Met officer told the BBC’s Newsnight programme.

In 2013, former detective Shirley Thompson told The Herald of her long-standing concerns about the Goad inquiry. Goad was sentenced to life imprisonment in 2004 after he admitted sexually abusing more than a dozen boys.

She noted what she believed was a number of failures by Devon and Cornwall Police, including failing to act on statements by his victims of other paedophiles operating in and around Plymouth.

She said senior officers told her to “put a lid on it” and concentrate her investigation solely into Goad.

She said: “Reading the newspapers today was like a repeat of what I saw with Goad – officers being told to stop investigating, told to ignore evidence, and young men being left to be abused by others. This is what Goad’s victims said for years. It’s what I was told during the inquiry – “put a lid on it and concentrate on Goad”.

“So much of that investigation was not finished. There was an immense possibility and probability there was communication between him and other paedophile offenders in Britain after he fled to Thailand, but no one bothered to look into it.

“There was evidence he snatched boys in other cities and shared his victims with other paedophiles in London and Manchester, but no-one looked into it.”

Shirley said her attempts to get other cases fully investigated in 2004, after Goad was jailed, met with silence. It took another year – and a damning BBC Panorama programme criticising Devon and Cornwall Police – to see an investigation into other men previously mentioned. Even then, only one – Peter Norsworthy – was brought to justice. But by then she said she had been sidelined and left the force soon after suffering breast cancer.

She said: “In relation to the child abuse inquiry in London, I wonder how many whistle blowers have lost their jobs or been ignored and sidelined over the years?

“Now they’re talking about the Met investigating the Met over whether they protected suspected paedophile MPs.

I suppose it could be worse – they could ask Devon and Cornwall Police to do it, or South Yorkshire Police, after the child abuse scandal in Rotherham.

“They need specialist independent investigators, who cannot be influenced or pressured. That way no-one could threaten them with disciplinary action, threaten them with the Official Secrets Act. They would be able to go where the evidence guides them – not senior officers and not politicians.”

Shirley said that despite being told not to go on fishing trips for information, she would often gather damning statements from victims before alerting her superiors.

She said: “We would interview victims who led us to other victims and we’d interview them and so on. After we’d gathered the evidence senior officers would write the action up after the fact, when it should’ve been the other way around. When other suspect names were mentioned we were told ‘don’t go there’.

“Goad would’ve pleaded not guilty if we had stuck to what we were told to do.”

Inside the mind of Plymouth’s most notorious paedophile

April 08, 2017

goadmarket

William Goad was a millionaire whose career began on a market stall

One of Britain’s most prolific paedophiles – Plymouth businessman William Goad – stopped attempting suicide in prison after he believed he would be freed six years into his life sentence.

Goad, of Ford Park Road, was jailed for life at Plymouth Crown Court in October 2004 after he pleaded guilty to sexually abusing young boys.

During his sentencing hearing, prosecutor Martin Meeke QC, told the court: “It is believed there has been no single defendant with more victims than this man.”

Millionaire Goad was branded a ‘voracious, calculating, predatory and violent homosexual paedophile’ who had once boasted of beating his own ‘record’ of abusing 142 boys in a year

In that time he set up and ran the Mount Gould Camping Club, opened the Cornish Market World in St Austell with a business partner, and later opened a children’s play zone Ben’s Playworld in the same area.

The ‘strictly private and confidential’ minutes revealed how a man revealed during counselling how as a child he was abused by a paedophile gang, naming Goad as the ringleader. The psychiatrist revealed to the group the man had gone to police “in the summer of 1994” and listed other children also abused and names of “some of the paedophiles concerned”.

The minutes revealed how Goad’s house was “kitted out like a boys club” and that “in payment of the abuse the children suffered they were all given BMX bikes”

Some of the abused boys’ parents “had debts paid or overlooked and some were taken away for weekends by Bill Goad and associates”.

The minutes noted: “The weekends away were spent in other large cities such as London and Manchester where the boys were shared with other men in these cities.

“The boys were threatened to keep quiet and were paid off.”

Most ominously, the minutes noted: “It appears that some prominent men in society have or did have associations with this ring.”

William Goad (1944 – 20 October 2012) was a British millionaire businessman from Plymouth, Devon who was imprisoned for life for child rape. He was called in various newspapers “Britain’s most prolific paedophile”,[1][2][3] with his assaults causing two of his victims to commit suicide.[2]Goad was sent to prison for life in October 2004.[1] He pleaded guilty to two charges of indecent assault and 14 counts of rape.[a][4]He was described in court as a “voracious, calculating, predatory and violent homosexual paedophile” who sexually abused young boys over a 30-year period.[4]

Goad’s fortune was once estimated to be around £25 million.[6] Goad opened Cornish Market World in 1991, which became at one point Britain’s biggest indoor market with more than 300 stalls.[7]

In the mid-1990s Goad launched Ben’s Playworld, a children’s play zone hosting a range of activities aimed at 2 to 12-year-olds, including mega-slides, giant tubes and a massive ball-pond.[7]

Goad died of natural causes at HMP Isle of Wight, Albany on 20 October 2012.[4][9]

The idea that we keep the political and judicial systems apart in this country is sound. No one would want a crooked government being able to lean on the courts to make sure decisions always went the “right” way. But when you study this week’s decision to cut 10 years from the sentence handed down to Roy Whiting, the killer of Sarah Payne, you might come round to see the justice in my idea for a radical overhaul of our legal system.

Paedophile Army sergeant who raped a young girl has jail term cut by top judges

February 22, 2017

A paedophile army sergeant who raped one young girl and committed sex attacks on another has had his jail term cut by top judges.

Alan McCurry, 67, who served in the 4th Battalion Mercian Regiment, based in Farnborough, abused the victims during the 1970’s and 1980’s.

McCurry lived in South Cerney, Gloucestershire, after leaving the Mercians in 1982. And he later served as a chef in a Territorial Army division of the Merseyside-based King’s Regiment.

He was arrested after one of the victims plucked up the courage to go to the police in 2010.

The sick ex-soldier was jailed for 15 years in July 2015 at Colchester Military Courts Centre.

He was convicted of two counts of rape, four of indecent assault and one of indecency with a child.

Lord Justice Simon, at London’s Criminal Appeal Court, cut his sentence by a year.

The judge, sitting with Mr Justice Holroyde and Mr Justice Soole, also heard McCurry’s bid to get his convictions overturned.

Lord Justice Simon commented:

“These were very serious offences with a devastating impact on the lives of the victims,” he added.

But aspects of the 15-year sentence were “unlawful” and the overall term had to be cut by a year.

British court refuses to extradite suspected American paedophile

UK judges say Roger Giese, a fugitive from FBI since 2007, can only be sent to US after assurances his human rights will not be breached

The two judges at the high court in London made it clear that if no assurance was given, they would refuse to hand over Roger Giese, 40, to stand trial in California, where he is charged with sexually abusing a boy under the age of 14 from 1998 until 2002.

The former choirmaster has been living in a village in Hampshire under a different name and working for a PR company.

Giese is wanted in Orange County, California, for allegedly committing “lewd acts” with a child. He is alleged to have befriended the boy in 1998, when he was working as a voice coach for the All-American Boys Chorus. He fled the US eight years ago just as he was about to stand trial.

An extradition request from the US was certified by the Home Office in May 2014, and Giese was arrested on 4 June last year. But magistrates court district judge Margot Coleman refused the request last April.

Lord Justice Aikens and Mr Justice Holroyde stated in a joint written judgment that Coleman was right to conclude that extradition would be “inconsistent” with Giese’s ECHR rights. The judges said that if no assurance was given “in due time”, the US government appeal for the right to extradite must be dismissed.

According to a Daily Mirror investigation, Giese set up home with a new partner in the Hampshire countryside. There was no suggestion she knew about his past. Together, the pair built a PR company with clients including the travel firm (Savile-linked)Thomas Cook.

  • Survivors say he was not the only abuser
  • Official report concluded that investigators could have done more
  • Now police launch a fresh search for other paedophiles in the case

William Goad

Police have launched a new investigation into Britain’s worst ever paedophile after an internal report revealed that officers failed to hunt down his sick accomplices.

Goad died last year in prison aged 68, but some of his survivors have long suspected there were others involved in his child abuse ring who escaped the net.

Their claims have now been backed by a police probe which said detectives focused so narrowly on Goad that they sidelined claims he had help.

The report by Devon and Cornwall Police’s Professional Standards Department (PSD) said hundreds of possible new victims have come forward after his conviction but none had even been interviewed properly.

Survivors have always claimed he had links with other paedophiles and sometimes abused boys with them.

A police document from 1996 warned that Goad’s abuse ring contained ‘prominent members of society’ – but none were ever identified.

Devon and Cornwall Police launched their internal probe after a complaint was lodged last November by Paul Wyatt, who was abused by Goad in his teens and has campaigned for years to see the case reopened.

The PSD referred the case to the Independent Police Complaints Commission but insisted the force had correctly followed its policy at the time and did not recommend specific disciplinary action.

However, investigators agreed there was a possibility other survivors ‘might have also been abused by other offenders and thus the lack of any police action has potentially meant these offenders have retained their liberty and continued their offending behaviour’.

Mr Wyatt, who said survivors who came forward were simply given a crime number and referred to support services, welcomed the new inquiry.

He said: ‘Of the 17 witnesses who originally were part of the trial which led to Goad’s eventual conviction, some had named other paedophiles connected to Goad who had also abused them. This information eventually led to the convictions of other paedophiles in the last few years.

‘What if these other hundreds of victims, that came forward but were never allowed to make statements, were abused by others as well?

‘They were just given crime reference numbers and a telephone helpline to ring. It means their offenders have been active in Plymouth for all this time without ever being brought to book.’

Mr Wyatt was backed by former detective constable Shirley Thompson, who helped secure Goad’s life sentence in 2004.

William Alexander Goad – companies
Where are William Goad’s lost millions?
And by the 90s Goad was a rich
man. He was a joint owner of a huge indoor market in Cornwall. The business is worth several million.
He knew his share would be at risk if he was arrested and ordered to compensate his victims. In 1998 he
fled abroad. With a false passport Goad set about hiding not just himself but his assets too. He was now
wanted for questioning.Secret filmingBut when police approached Ken Gorvin, associate and business partner of over 30 years, he couldn’t help.
Did he ever offer you any help to tell you where Mr Goad was?SLEVIN: Certainly no information came to us to indicate where he was.POWYS: So there was no information from Mr Govin that “Yes, I know where he is and this is where he
is”?SLEVIN: No.POWYS: What police didn’t know was that the two men were in contact. In October 1999, while he was
on the run, Goad travelled to Spain to meet Gorvin. There they struck a deal. What exactly they agreed
isn’t known, but what is clear from the company documents is that Bill Goad resigned from the business and
transferred his shares. Ken Gorvin became the sole director of a new company in which he and his family
hold all the shares.
In 2003 Goad ventured back to the UK and stayed at this hotel on the outskirts of
Plymouth, he was caught and arrested on his way back from a meeting with Gorvin and lawyers to discuss
the Cornish market’s trading hours. It was then police found out Goad was booked into the hotel under his
false identity.He was booked in under the alias.SLEVIN: Yes.POWYS: What name was given?SLEVIN: The name of Gorvin was used to confirm the booking.POWYS: So the name of Ken Gorvin was used.SLEVIN: And to confirm the credit card booking, yes.POWYS: Was it paid by credit card, cash? How was it paid for?SLEVIN: It was by credit card in the name of Gorvin.Secret filmingPOWYS: Mr Gorvin declined to answer our questions saying we were acting maliciously. We wanted to
ask if he knew of Goad’s false identity and how the business assets had been dispersed. At Goad’s
sentencing the court heard that his money from the deal must have been secreted or hidden, and that as a
result, there was nothing left to compensate the victims. Most of those victims can’t sue Goad either. The
law says victims of abuse have to sue within six years of turning 18. For Ian Gibbons it’s too late, he’s too
old, and he’s been warned his record may put off the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. They
make awards to victims of violent crime, but not always if they themselves have gone on to offend.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/nol/shared/spl…/crimewave.txt

As I mentioned, Goad was extremely close to Gorvin and they were in partnership in the majority of Goad’s companies. Lots of chopping and changing within the companies, no doubt hiding the assets. One of the companies Cubic Vision was originally called Charlie’s Adventureworld and it is this company that eventually appears to have been sold by the now sole owner Ken Gorvin before he set off for a life in Australia.

http://www.townandcountrymarkets.co….ture-land.html

I believe this to be Gorvin, married Mel Gorvin in 2008 and now living what appears to be a very comfortable life in Perth Australia.

Unfortunately those that were abused appear to have received no financial compensation, as the majority of Goad’s millions simply disappeared.

Edit: Yes that is definitely the Gorvins as Mel Gorvin’s Facebook page has a ‘friend’ in the name of Donna Hood who was the company secretary for almost all William Goad’s companies. Perhaps she knows where the money has gone?

Did corrupt Plymouth policeman tip off Britain’s worst paedophile William Goad?

 February 28, 2014

A “CORRUPT” police detective is feared to have helped derail investigations into one of Britain’s most notorious paedophiles.

William Goad was jailed for life in 2004 after he admitted sexually abusing more than a dozen boys.

However, his survivors have long claimed that Goad appeared to act with impunity for many years.

Goad himself used to boast to his victims that he was untouchable.

Police officers were seen going to Goad’s address while he was under observations by a officers from special “Task Force”.

One officer, who has since died, is repeatedly mentioned in the report and his action have been described as “suspicious” and the decision to have him be part of a later investigation into Goad’s abuse as “concerning”.

The report by PSD notes that in the early 1980s the Task Force conducted observations on Goad’s house “as a result of intelligence received believed to be regarding underage sex at the address”.

One of the two officers who carried out the observations told PSD investigators he recalled how a Detective Constable [Mike} Foulden was seen going to the address.

An Inspector who led the operation, but who has since retired, also confirmed Det Con Foulden’s unexpected presence at Goad’s home.

When police finally raided the property, believing they would find incriminating evidence such as video recordings, they instead found nothing, except “Masonic material”, he report says.

The officer carrying out the observations told PSD investigators that “it appeared that Mr Goad was expecting the police”.

The retired Inspector also told PSD investigators he believed the operation might have been compromised by Det Con Foulden.

The matter was referred upwards to another senior officer.

Another officer – who retired as a distinguished senior officer – was interviewed by PSD investigators and recalled how when they were a constable, they remembered Det Con Foulden coming into the Task Force office and asking questions about the operation.

This incident was also referred to the Task Force supervisors as it was thought “suspicious”.

The PSD report notes that the visit of Det Con Foulden to Goad’s home, together with the suspicion at the time that the observations might have been compromised by him, “does highlight the question of what, if any action, was taken in regards to this.”

Paul has bitterly complained that in 1986, when he was collected for interview by two officers about the abuse he suffered at the hands of Goad.

One of them was Det Con Foulden.

During the trip to the police station, he said the officer said to him: “We’ve heard that Billy Goad popped your cherry”.

As a result of this comment, and others during police interview, Paul felt he could only reveal a small part of the abuse he suffered.

He did not make a fuller statement until 1994, which saw the launch of a new investigation.

This investigation was binned after the Crown Prosecution Service said further charges would be an “abuse of process”.

Two years later more victims came forwards but as police launched another investigation, Goad fled to Thailand until he return in 2003.

At his sentencing the successful Plymouth market trader was described by Judge William Taylor as “a voracious, calculating and predatory paedophile over the past 40 years who has corrupted generations of boys aged between eight and 16”.

The PSD report, which was launched to investigate whether a number of officers were seen going to Goad’s home, has found Paul Wyatt’s complaint cannot be upheld.

However, Paul feels it has uncovered a likely explanation as to why Goad escaped justice for so many years.

Paul told The Herald: “When Foulden said in the police car he’d heard Goad had “popped my cherry” I had not told anyone else at that stage.

“He had come to me because another victim had said I was also victim of Goad’s – but he never said what Goad had done.

“I believe the only way he would’ve known that detail was from Goad himself.

“Because of what he said, and how he behaved during the interview, I never made a full disclosure to him.

“Because of Foulden’s impact on me, Goad was allowed to carry on abusing boys for another 15 years.”

Some quarters have suggested that there could be an innocent explanation, in that Det Con Foulden was a golfer, who played for a police golf team and often encouraged local businesses to sponsor prizes and that his visit to Goad’s address may have been to garner sponsorship.

His arrival at the Task Force office may have been genuine interest in the inquiry and his comments to Mr Wyatt may have come about due to the officers’ “brash, larger than life character”, rather than any dishonesty.

This is dismissed by Paul, who notes that other officers had flagged Det Con Foulden up to senior officers in the early 1980s for his possible links to Goad, yet he was later given a significant role in investigating allegations against the market trader.

He said: “I believe he was aiding and abetting Goad.

“I believe he was feeding Goad statements.

“Just after I made my first statement to police I had the first attempt on my life.

“Other victims of Goad had been sent to get me, one with a big bowie knife.”

He said Det Con Foulden also intimidated him during the 1986 interview, using a specific piece of information which Paul never revealed to police until years later.

He said: “Foulden threatened me with a charge on an incident which involved me and someone else.

“The only way he could’ve found out about it was from direct contact with Eddie Pratt, a man closely linked to Goad, who was later exposed by BBC Panorama as a paedophile.

“I did not reveal this information until I was interviewed in 2005 by Det Con Shirley Thompson.

“There was no way he could’ve know it, unless he was in contact with Eddie Pratt or from Goad himself.

“That information was not in the public domain, or even known to police.

“I think he threatened me in an attempt to keep me quiet regarding Goad.”

Police finally launched Operation Faber into Pratt and others in April 2005.

Eighteen days after Paul gave a video interview, disclosing his abuse at the hands of seven men, including Pratt, Pratt committed suicide by hanging in France.

The operation in the jailing of Peter Norsworthy for 15 years for nine counts of rape.

In 1987 Goad was sentenced to six months, suspended for two years, for the three counts of indecent assaults on Paul.

He was found not guilty on sexual assault charges on six other boys.

Goad died of natural causes in HMP Albany on the Isle of Wight in October 2012.

Paul fears these other boys were also interviewed – and put off giving a fuller account – by Det Con Foulden.

He said: “Foulden interviewed several boys.

“He was one of the main investigators.

“Goad got not guilty’s on all but my charges.”

Paul said the finding by the PSD report, that there was “no case to answer” was “bitter-sweet”.

He said: “It touches on the concept that police knew there was something suspicious about Foulden. A number of officers raised concerns about Foulden at the time, including the observation team and a senior investigating officer. Since then some of Goad’s victims have mentioned Foulden.”

Following a separate complaint by Paul, police last year launched a new investigation made “during and since previous inquiries” into Goad.

Paul said: “It all shows the difference between policing back then and how brilliant it is now.

“Now victims feel safer than ever. They know they will be listened to and it will be properly investigated. That’s what this has always been about for me.”

A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police: “The allegations subject of the complaint have been fully investigated by our Professional Standards Department which has involved interviewing both serving and some retired officers.

“However no evidence has been gained to support the allegations and the complaint is not upheld.”

FORMER DETECTIVE: ‘COMPLACENCY, CORRUPTION AND NEGLECT LED TO A DECADE OF FURTHER ABUSE’

THE detective who helped jail Goad said she has long believed there was a “corrupt officer” who “compromised” earlier investigations.

Former Det Con Shirley Thompson said the PSD investigation still leaves questions unanswered.

She said: “I still would like to know the justification for not going to Thailand to seize Goad’s computer after he returned to the UK under a false name.

“It could have given us a lot of information.

“We know he was sending e-mails and had access to a computer, because we had access to information he was sending them to his business partner in England.

“If he was a major drug dealer they would’ve had an officer on the next aeroplane.

“But the rape of young boys? They were not even going to suggest it. It was a case of “put a lid on it” because they were frightened allegations of corruption were going to come out.

“Why was there no investigation of Goad’s Blackpool trip where he procured boys? No investigation into allegations about Goad’s journeys to other cities with kids being kidnapped and abused?

“Why was Goad allowed to live under an pseudonym in Ivybridge before he fled to Thailand?

“If Goad did not know police were after him, why did he use a pseudonym?”

In September last year, The Herald exclusively reported how the former detective had repeatedly urged her bosses in 2004 to go further with the investigation into other alleged abusers linked to Goad, but to no avail.

She said she had first heard Det Con Foulden mentioned in the 1990s in relation to another case.

She said: “I was a probationary officer, dealing with a nuisance phone call case. The woman mentioned a man who was linked to boys’ homes. She said Det Con Foulden would go ‘dining’ with this man on a weekly basis.

“Years later the man committed suicide after a boy made allegations of abuse.

“I heard there had been surveillance years before so I contacted the detective who made the surveillance.

“The detective said I wouldn’t find any of it, saying ‘some people are untouchable’.

“I went to a CID officer asking what should I do with the information I was being given by this woman about this abuser. The detective said leave it with me, but came back later and said if I valued my job, I should burn the lot.”

“I do believe there was a corrupt officer who compromised the initial inquiries.

“There is still so much that needs answering.

“As Paul has said before, there should be a public inquiry.

“I believe that because of complacency, neglect and corruption, it led to a decade more of boys being raped by Goad.”

Well known children’s home in Devon has been temporarily shut down. 

Dame Hannah Rogers children’s home in Ivybridge shut down amid police probe

August 08, 2014

A HOME for children with disabilities has been temporarily closed and alternative living arrangements made pending a police probe.

Details emerged yesterday that children’s residential services at Dame Hannah Rogers Trust children’s unit in Ivybridge have been suspended until at least mid September.

Devon County Council had to plan alternative care arrangements after the action was taken on Tuesday night.

It is understood that the suspension came after the Trust referred itself to the authorities over safeguarding issues.

One of the UK’s oldest charities, Hannahs has sites in Ivybridge and Seale-Hayne, Newton Abbot. It provides learning, care and support to children and adults with a range of disabilities.

A Devon County Council spokesman said: “Due to on-going safeguarding concerns and police investigation the regulatory body Ofsted have made the decision to serve notice of temporary suspension on the Dame Hannah Rogers Trust home in Ivybridge.”All the social care and health authorities who fund placements at the home have been informed and are working together to plan alternative care arrangements.”Councillor James McInnes, Devon County Council’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for children, schools and skills, said: “We are very concerned about the difficulties this disruption in service places on children with very high needs and their families. We are working with regulators and all other authorities to find solutions to this situation as quickly as possible. We want to ensure the highest quality care for our most vulnerable children and adults and we place their safety at the upmost importance.”

A SCOUT group travelled in style to London to collect their environmental awards.

Members of the 47th Plymouth (Langley) Scout Group won a special Green Apple award for their work in supporting villagers in Nepal.

The Scouts were given three first class rail tickets by First Great Western chairman Charles Howeson for their trip to the House of Commons this week.

The Scouts have been involved in fundraising for the charity Clinic Nepal, which was set up to provide a health clinic for the 20,000-strong community of Meghauli, which is 20 miles from the nearest hospital.

In October last year the Plymouth group, along with Scouts from Bristol, held a ‘Jungle Jamboree’ with local Scouts in Nepal.

Fran Cramoysan, whose son Jez went to London this week, said they had laid the foundation stone for the new Scout hut last October, and hoped to have an opening ceremony when they take another group to Nepal in October 2009.

Mr Howeson said: “First Great Western is proud to be able to support Langley Scout Group.

“The work they have undertaken in Nepal is an example to us all. I also wish them good luck in representing their country in the European Awards for the Environment.

”  For some years Michael Grylls had acted as a consultant to the lobbying company run by Greer at the heart of the Cash-for-questions inquiry. The Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, Sir Gordon Downey, stated that Grylls had “seriously misled” the select committee on members’ interests in 1990 (replaced in 1995 by the Standards and Privileges Committee) by understating the number of payments he had received for introducing clients to ministers[4] and Grylls’ conduct, said Sir Gordon, had fallen “below the standards the House is entitled to expect of its members”.[5][6][7]

“Derek Laud… ran a Pimlico PR agency called Ludgate Communications for a number of years…

When prosecutors failed to achieve a conviction, in what Lord Montagu has characterised as a “witch hunt” to secure a high-profile conviction, he was arrested again in 1954 and charged with performing “gross offences”.
Lord Montagu was also a director with Derke Laud at DELTATHETA LIMITED

Strategy Network International – Derek Laud
In June 1990, Hamilton was recruited by the right-wing Monday Club activist Derek Laud to work for Strategy Network International , a firm specifically created to lobby against anti-apartheid movements and economic sanctions and for apartheid South Africa‘s ‘transitional government’ of Namibia set up in defiance of UN Resolution 435 on Namibian independence. Derek Laud was an ex-Monday Club activist and protégé of Hamilton’s friend Michael Brown, who offered Hamilton a fee of £8,000 per year. Hamilton failed to register the paid-for consultancy. Hamilton took free trips to South Africa in the company of Brown.[19][20]


David Cameron’s freebie trip to South Africa

The trip was organised and funded by Strategy Network International (SNI), created in 1985 specifically to lobby against the imposition of sanctions on South Africa.

Yet when asked by the authors if Mr Cameron wrote a memo or had to report back to the office about his trip, Alistair Cooke – in 1989 his boss at Central Office – said it was “simply a jolly”, adding: “It was all terribly relaxed, just a little treat, a perk of the job.

Clients

Until the 20th century Coutts was a clearing bank to the nobility and landed gentry, but today it is a wealth manager to a wider range of clients, including entrepreneurs, entertainers, sportsmen, professionals and executives. The British Royal Family is a noted client.[8][9] There are however stringent requirements to being accepted as a client, not just based on average and total financial assets. Prospective clients need at least £1,000,000 in investable assets, not including real estate.[10]

Coutts is seen as a bank for the rich and famous of British society. Like all banks, it is secretive about its client list. The bank has a regular presence at the annual Cannes Film Festival.[11]

Design

Coutts often collaborates with British fashion designers, including previous designs for its distinctive credit and debit cards. In 2004, British fashion designer and Savile Row tailor Ozwald Boateng designed the super-premium Coutts World Charge Card[12] whilst in 2006 Stella McCartney was commissioned to design the Coutts Visa debit card.[13

Stoke Mandeville Hospital Paedophile Ring – Sir Jimmy Savile, Dr Michael Salmon, Dreamflight Charity

Dr Michael Anthony Salmon, (pictured above right) in his role as chief medical officer of Dreamflight.

Dr Michael Salmon is a convicted paedophile who worked alongside Sir Jimmy Savile at Stoke Mandeville Hospital


Update: Jan 10 2017

Is this jumbo jet Christmas party with Jimmy Savile – the BA charity project Skyride – the inspiration for Dreamflight?

(There couldn’t have been too many “Christmas jumbo jet parties for children” in 1985 in England)

savile-jumbo-jet-children-1985

Children’s Christmas Party on Board a Jumbo Jet – Jimmy Savile with Partygoers  1985

 

Dreamflight was co-founded in 1986 by Patricia Pearce MBE and Derek Pereira, both of whom worked for British Airways – co-founders Derek Pereira and Pat Pearce, former British Airways flight engineer and flight attendant respectively

 

Patricia had previously helped to organise a BA project, Skyride, which raised money to take underprivileged children on a one-hour ‘Christmas party’ flight. Patricia and Derek decided to go a step further and raise money to take deserving children to Walt Disney World, and Dreamflight was born.

link

Derek Pereira had just helped organise a one-hour flight to give children the chance to experience a plane trip and thought that he could do something much more exciting.

 

Jimmy Savile and Derek Pereira would have likely known each other from Stoke Mandeville:

Mr Pereira had first become involved with the disabled when he volunteered to help at the Stoke Mandeville handicapped games in England in 1983.

link

At a party for the participants (of the one hour flight) he announced that he wanted to take a plane of children to Florida the following year.

The following morning he received offers of support, which led to the start of a mission that gives hundreds of children the chance to fly to Florida, US, and visit Disneyworld, Seaworld, and other places every year.

Determined to make Dreamflight a reality, Mr Pereira approached the then airline chief medical officer who agreed to pass the information on to the BA chairman Sir Colin Marshall, who turned down the idea.

Mr Pereira promised to do the flight with no cost to the airline by raising money.

Sir Colin gave him the go-ahead but there were still major obstacles to overcome, such as finding money for the flight’s tariff of $100,000 (BD37,800).

However, a British Post Office party brought in $2,000 (BD756), followed by a donation of $10,000 (BD3,780) from an investment company and that was the start.

Children chosen for the trip were sick, but they had to be fit enough to travel.

Although Dreamflight was supposed to be a one-off event there was so much support for it that it continued on an annual basis and was registered as a charity, with Mr Pereira as a trustee.

Shortly before his first arrest, Salmon was hailed by Princess Diana for taking 300 ill and disabled children to Disney World in Florida. He was asked to join the inaugural Dreamflight charity trip, co-founded by former British Airways cabin crew member Patricia Pearce in 1987, as chief medical officer. The former doctor said he was phoned by British Airways and asked to pick 300 ‘very sick and handicapped’ children who would benefit from the once-in-a-lifetime experience. Princess Diana waved the flight off from Heathrow Airport, with 298 young children aboard, including one of the girls who later claimed Salmon indecently touched her during a medical appointment.

Dreamflight is a registered UK charity that changes young lives through taking seriously ill and disabled children, without their parents, on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida. The first Dreamflight trip was in November 1987


Dreamflight was co-founded in 1986 by Patricia Pearce and Derek Pereira, both of whom worked for British Airways. Patricia had previously helped to organise a BA project, Skyride, which raised money to take &underprivileged children on a one-hour ‘Christmas party’ flight. Patricia and Derek decided to go a step further and raise money to take deserving children to Walt Disney World, and Dreamflight was born.

The stars started to arrive to meet the children.  These included  Bobby Moore, Steve Davis, Rolf Harris, Roy Castle, Pete Murray, Liz Frazer, Michael Strachan, Floella Benjamin, The Bucks Fizz group and Jimmy Tarbuck.”

“In the early years Rolf Harris and Jeremy Beadle would come along to the pre-trip party and entertain the children.”

My Dream Flights by Patricia Pearce MBE

(pg 68/pg95)


‘In the 1970s Jimmy Savile had a financial interest in Le Cardinal/Maison Royale nightclubs in Glen Fern Road. I often used to see him in that area of the town.

I think he took part in the torchlight run with Ken Baily and Roy Castle as part of Bmth Carnival Week.

He would have loved this young people orientated event too. Similar to Jersey Battle of Flowers Parade by look of it which he attended, and with choosing a Miss Bournemouth…

When I was a child, growing up on the mean streets of Bournemouth, Roy Castle always seemed to have pride of place in the carnival parade every summer.

link

link

In a summer that witnessed Secretary of State for War John Profumo resign over his affair with Christine Keeler, £2.3 million stolen in the Great Train Robbery in Buckinghamshire and Pauline Reade’s disappearance on her way to a dance in Manchester, the first victim of what would later be known as the Moors Murders, Jimmy Savile’s moneymaking bandwagon rolled into Great Yarmouth where he was compère for a seasonal showcase at the Royal Aquarium.

The main attraction was teenage singing sensation Helen Shapiro, who had first topped the charts as a 14-year-old. Among those lower down on the bill were Roy Castle and an upcoming comedian by the name of Ronnie Corbett.

pg 171, In Plain Sight, The Life and Lies of Jimmy Savile – Dan Davies

Aged ten, Shapiro was a singer with “Susie and the Hula Hoops,” (with her cousin, 60s singer, Susan Singer) a school band which included Marc Bolan (then using his real name of Mark Feld) as guitarist.

She played the role of Nancy in Lionel Bart‘s musical, Oliver!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helen_Shapiro

Stamford Hill also seemed to produce alot of the celebs and music stars of the day, Helen Shapiro, Marc Bolan, Malcolm McLaren.

 

ten-year-old local girl Helen Shapiro was singing in a group called Susie and the Hula Hoops, along with a boy called Markie Feld, later to change his name to Marc Bolan. Two years on, in 1962, she’d have two number one hits. In ’59 she and Markie were both members of Stamford Hill Boys and Girls Club in Montefiore House (now replaced by a block of flats just south of Holmleigh Road), as were Alan Sugar, one day to get knighted for services to himself, and Malcolm Edwards, soon to become Malcolm McLaren.

Update: 

Susie, former wife of Dr Michael Salmon,  who sexually abused girls at the Stoke Mandeville hospital where Jimmy Savile raped children, claims she was “shocked” at what her husband had done

dreamflight-1987-salmon

Image result for dr michael salmon wife

6 Feb 2015

Mrs Salmon attended everyday of the first trial. His wife Susie, who has stood by him throughout proceedings, sobbed as he was taken down to the cells.

His wife, to whom he has been married since 1979 (married 37 years as of 2016) claims she didn’t know about his abuse…she had no idea what had happened

Mrs Salmon did not attend the latest trial, but she admitted she went everyday of the first trial ‘because I needed to know exactly what he was being accused of and make up my own mind.’

Mrs Salmon was adamant ‘I was very shocked’ what her then husband had done – and she had no idea what had happened.

ww:

Well that can’t be true –

How could she not know and be “shocked” when she was married to him when he was first jailed and convicted of abusing children in 1990 and remained married to him

 

On release from prison, Salmon lived at Woodgreen in the New Forest area of Hampshire with his wife Susie, pursuing his interests in butterflies and photography. More recently the couple set up home in Park Lane, Salisbury, before he was once more charged with sexually abusing youngsters. His wife has stood by him, supporting him each day in court during his five-week trial.

What kind of person would stay married to a convicted paedophile??

Salmon’s previous abuse had come to light in 1987 during an audit inquiry in the hospital, when detectives searching his office for evidence of fraudulent activity discovered letters from young female patients and launched a further probe into his behaviour.

He was asked to join the inaugural Dreamflight charity trip, co-founded by former British Airways cabin crew member Patricia Pearce in 1987, as chief medical officer.
He was jailed for 18 months in November 1990 after admitting indecently assaulting three girls as young as 12. 

He served around 18 months in Grendon Underwood Prison and was struck off the medical register, never returning to his profession.

link

Mrs Salmon was a nursery nurse -at the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital 

Michael Salmon lived in Buckland, near Aston Clinton, after his second marriage in 1979 to a nursery nurse working at the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital. “My eldest son contacted the BBC and said he would like to go on Jim’ll Fix It,” Salmon explained. “Martin was a bit of a celebrity when he appeared on it.”

link

Michael Salmon, 81, was convicted of 14 counts carried out at Stoke Mandeville and the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospitals between 1975 and 1989.

Salmon was abusing children when she worked at the Royal Buckinghamshire hospital as a nursery nurse

Salmon was also convicted of raping a girl on two occasions at his home

link

Residents in his village had long held suspicions, with one neighbour telling the Mail: ‘I thought he was a dirty old man.’


ww:

Also in the article, the repeating of the mantra – that Salmon and Savile were not linked despite:

sav-and-3-docs

Leeds General Infirmary, 1968.
Savile abused victims as soon as he started frequenting Stoke Mandeville in 1968, the report said.
He became a porter at the hospital, having been invited in by a fellow porter who had worked with Savile at Leeds General Infirmary, where the DJ had also abused patients.
Savile’s victims at Stoke Mandeville included an eight-year-old boy, and a girl, also eight, who was raped at least 10 times by Savile when she visited relatives there. One victim was systematically abused in the chapel by Savile, who was often accompanied by another, unnamed man. “Every time I went in that room I just knew he would touch me wherever he wanted to touch me,” she said.

Between 1972 and 1985 nine verbal complaints and one formal report were made about Savile by his victims.

The formal complaint in 1977 came from the father of an 11-year-old girl who was sexually abused by Savile in a treatment room. The girl screamed hysterically, and a senior nurse arrived but told her to be quiet, saying Savile would not do such a dreadful thing and he raised a great deal of money for the hospital.

The incident “was serious and should have led to Savile’s suspension from the hospital and a formal police report being made”, Johnstone said.

This was a serious allegation and should have been investigated fully as it was reported to a hospital manager.”

Politicians, civil servants and NHS managers gave Jimmy Savile free rein to sexually abuse 60 people, including children as young as eight, over two decades at Stoke Mandeville hospital, two damning reports have concluded.

Sir Jimmy Savile:
1965: Records show abuse started at the BBC, at Leeds general infirmary, where Savile was a long-term volunteer porter, and at Stoke Mandeville hospital, where he also volunteered.

Also of note, the msm have referred to his loyal wife with 3 different names –  as Mary, Ann and Susie??

2013:

In 1990, the paediatrician was jailed for indecently assaulting three other girls, two aged 13 and one of 17.

He served three years in prison and now lives in retirement with his wife Mary, 70, in a £750,000 cottage in the heart of the New Forest in Hampshire.

Before and after his first paedophile conviction, Michael A. Salmon worked for the BBC

Salmon travel to Zambia in September 1984 with the BBC Natural History Unit.

After Dr Michael Salmon’s paedophile conviction in 1990 he worked for the BBC in 2002

The dull, grey morning of 28th July 2002 saw a rather special attempt to attract Purple Emperors down to the car park. BBC naturalist Chris Packham, accompanied by butterfly expert and author Dr Michael Salmon (who was also Wiltshire’s bug recorder) and that excellent wildlife cameraman Graham Hatherley, arrived to film the Emperor for a TV piece about butterfly collecting. Despite having been advised that activity would be at its peak some two weeks earlier, the team were prevented by Chris Packham’s commitments from an earlier visit. Michael Salmon, who has studied and written about the lives and activities of the great lepidopterists of the past, brought along their recommended equipment for attracting and catching the butterflies, and set it all out in the car park. This ranged from an antique butterfly net to a large white sheet on the ground, mirrors to reflect sunlight into the trees, and fruit, salmon, horse dung and bottles of urine – the latter provoking the following exchange: ‘what do you think of my sample – you are an ex-medical man, Mike’? ‘It tells me you have a very good renal function, Chris’.

Details of three doctors passed to police investigating Jimmy Savile allegations amid fears of paedophile sex abuse ring

The details of three doctors, who are alleged to have abused young people they were caring for, have been passed to detectives investigating allegations of sexual abuse by Jimmy Savile.

The move comes amid allegations that the doctors, who worked at hospitals where Savile had links, were involved with a network of child abusers, which also included the disgraced BBC presenter.

A report in the Guardian today claims that the three doctors have been identified by victims who came forward in the last couple of weeks – and that their names have now been passed to police.

Three doctors ‘collaborated in the abuse’ by Savile with one ‘helping select child patients to rape’

Dr Raymond Brown, who worked as a consultant paediatrician with Salmon, said the doctor would have known Savile because everyone at Stoke Mandeville knew him.

Dr Raymond Soloman  Brown
Dr Raymond Brown qualified in South Africa at the University of the Witwatersrand (“Wits University”) Medical School in 1966 and spent the next 6 years working in both district and teaching hospitals in Johannesburg, obtaining his higher paediatric qualification in 1971(Fellowship of the College of Physicians of South Africa with Paediatrics). Raymond emigrated to the UK with his family in 1972 and obtained the MRCP qualification in Edinburgh (MRCP(UK)), within a week of his arrival!   He worked in the Neonatal Unit at The Hammersmith Hospital as a Registrar, then at Northwick Park Hospital then became Senior Registrar at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford in 1973. During this period Raymond spent a year as a research fellow in the Department of Clinical Pharmacology, which proved to him that he would remain a clinician rather than an academic!He was appointed as Consultant in Paediatrics at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in 1976 and worked there until he retired from the NHS in 2007.Raymond initially had a small private practice in Aylesbury then The Chiltern Hospital in Buckinghamshire from about 1980, which expanded after he retired from the NHS. He was asked to start a private outpatient clinic at the new Oxford Children’s Hospital and continues to do so.In 2007 he met Dr Ian Hay (previously his Senior House Officer in Oxford) at a meeting at the Royal Society of Medicine and was very pleased to be invited to work with Ian’s private Practice at the Portland Hospital, London and has done so ever since.  He is a highly respected member of the Dr Ian Hay Ltd practice and his contribution over the years with some of the more complicated cases, has been invaluable.Raymond’s interests in his NHS years included the management of respiratory problems, diabetes, the newborn, including neonatal intensive care, but particularly clinical cardiology. Regrettably, he does not perform echocardiography any longer as he does not have enough ongoing exposure having retired from the NHS,  to make this a safe activity for his patients. As a General Paediatrician, Raymond’s practice has covered all aspects of paediatrics, however he has little specialised experience of Developmental Paediatrics, which he leaves to those with a specialised interest in this area.

June Thornton, a former nurse at the infirmary, said this month Savile molested a brain-damaged young girl who was a patient at the hospital. Thornton was recovering from an operation herself when she said she saw Savile “kissing her neck, running his hands up and down her arms, and then started to molest her”.

The sex attacks between 1973 and 1988 occurred at the same time as (Savile’s) offences.

 On another occasion the girl, who suffered from a genetic condition which causes tumours, was allegedly gang-raped when she was aged between 12 and 14.

“After she was raped by three grown men she was taken back to her hospital bed in a wheelchair by a hospital porter.”

In 1980, government ministers appointed Savile as chief fundraiser of the new National Spinal Injuries Centre (NSIC).

The government had given him the use of a ‘courtesy room’ at Admiralty House for entertaining leading businessman for the Stoke Mandeville campaign.

Jimmy Savile would be invited to spend Christmas at Chequers with the Thatchers.

As one of the highest-profile entrants in the inaugural London Marathon in the late spring of 1981, Savile had written to the Queen after the Lord Chamberlain, Lord Maclean, ruled that the following year’s race would not be routed up the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace. In February 1982 it was announced that the Queen had decided to overrule the decision.

After fixing it for the 1986 race to be routed up the Mall, Jimmy Savile was rewarded with a lifetime entry into the London Marathon. He became a regular feature of the television coverage, waggling his cigar at the start and the finish, grinding ever forward surrounded by a phalanx of running pals, and waving to the crowds who cheered him every step of the way. After finishing the 1986 race he even popped into the palace for a shower and a cup of tea with the Queen. ‘This man Savile has the keys to so many doors, said marathon organiser John Disley, shaking his head in wonder. ‘I just don’t know how he does it.’  (Sunday People , 20 April 1986)

Queen’s Dressmaker “Lillian” Joyce Burfield RVO and cousin Dame Yvonne Trueman (Derek Pereira’s sister)

The Queen’s dressmaker is cousin to the Derek Pereira, the creator of Dreamflight, and his sister,  pilot and charity fundraiser Dame Yvonne Trueman.

Derek Pereira brought Michael Salmon on board the first Dreamflight in 1987.


via troy:

Recent articles on Salmon say he was an organizer of Dreamflight.

Was he involved in the creation of Dreamflight with Pereira and Pearce?

And how in the world could Dreamflight be created through Stoke Mandeville by a Stoke paediatrician and two BA-employeed cousins of the Queen’s dressmaker (who both volunteered for Stoke) without Savile having his grimy, perverted hands involved with it?!


Dreamflight

Stoke Mandeville Hospital provided paediatric advice and wrote to paediatricians throughout the country to nominate children.  Letters were sent inviting those nominated to come, and asking their parents to sign in loco parentis forms.   

Next the organizers needed to find funding for the lease of a 747.  Derek’s small cottage in the wilds of Buckinghamshire became the command centre for organising large numbers of people to raise the money.  The BBC was approached to make a documentary programme.  Filming started in the cottage to show the ‘organisation’.

Scandal, though, was already in the air. Two months earlier, a chemistry teacher left after his homosexual fantasies were published on the internet.

Then came disclosures that three girls had been drugged and sexually assaulted in a dormitory

. .. it emerged that the headmaster, Richard McDonald, was not on a sabbatical but in prison on charges of sex offences against children.

Media stories of debauchery and drinking among the pupils followed swiftly.

It was the Duke of York who was most keen to send his daughters to the British-run Alpine establishment where the fees range from £15,300 to £22,325 a year. He was particularly attracted by the school’s ethos which was based on the philosophy of Kurt Hahn, the founder of the Duke’s own alma mater, Gordonstoun.

Patricia Pearce and Derek Pereira back home at Heathrow

Dreamflight was co-founded in 1986 by Patricia Pearce MBE and Derek Pereira, both of whom worked for British Airways – co-founders Derek Pereira and Pat Pearce, former British Airways flight engineer and flight attendant respectively

Patricia had previously helped to organise a BA project, Skyride, which raised money to take underprivileged children on a one-hour ‘Christmas party’ flight. Patricia and Derek decided to go a step further and raise money to take deserving children to Walt Disney World, and Dreamflight was born.

link

One by one the 288 children walked or were carried off the British Airways jet into a sea of smiles from a crowd of clowns and well-wishers.

An hour after landing Monday evening at Orlando International Airport, the British youngsters, suffering from incurable diseases, were aboard a caravan of 13 Greyhound buses and preparing for an eagerly awaited three-day tour of Walt Disney World and Sea World.

The unprecedented effort to bring the children to the Central Florida attractions was the brainchild of British Airways flight engineer Derek Pereira and flight attendant Patricia Pearce.

Quote:
Dreamflight is a UK-registered charity that was started in 1987 by its two founders, Derek Pereira and Pat Pearce, who were both with British Airways.

Mr Pereira had first become involved with the disabled when he volunteered to help at the Stoke Mandeville handicapped games in England in 1983.

Pat Pearce MBE Biography

my dream flights pat pearce.GIF

Dreamflight co-founder Pat Pearce MBE has led an amazing life, from her days of flying around the world including 2 weeks with HM Queen Elizabeth II, to setting up a one-off trip for 200 children to America – a ‘one-off trip’ that has happened every year for the last 25! As we embark on the 26th Dreamflight trip, the inspirational story of Pat Pearce MBE has been captured in the autobiography ‘My Dream Flights.

link

Patricia Pearce MBE, who joined BOAC (British Airways’ long-haul predecessor) in 1962 – a year before Elizabeth II was crowned – and served The Queen on her scheduled two-week Royal visit to New Zealand, in 1974, said: “The trip ended up lasting almost two months because the Heath government was brought down in the middle of the trip so the Royal couple had to come back to the UK and then fly back out again.

Savile lived at Stoke;

Jimmy Savile was given a bedroom in a building used to accommodate young medical students

Savile was free to come and go from his own flat on the hospital premises whenever he chose.

Furnished with leather sofas, chandeliers, a bed and a shower, it had its own special front door with a gold letter box and plaque.


Savile was even allowed to continue puffing away on his trademark cigars within the suite after smoking was banned throughout the rest of the hospital.

In 1978, Jimmy Savile described what he got out of the association with the Buckinghamshire hospital. “There are forty wards at Stoke Mandeville… and they are all filled with people; I will be able to do exactly what I feel like doing. If I feel like going on the ladies’ ward and pulling their legs, I can do that. If I want to go the kids’ ward and have a bit of a knock about, I can do that.”

In 2009, two Surrey Police officers interviewed Savile in his private office at the hospital where, secure in his lair and surrounded by the bricks and mortar he considered to be his own, he obfuscated, denied and then issued threats of his own.

Salmon was a child-abusing pediatrician charity organizer for Dreamflight, while Savile, a child-abusing children’s charity organizer, raped children at Stoke;

Queen honours volunteer Yvonne Trueman

Sister of Dreamflight’s Derek Pereira – Yvonne Trueman

The Order of Saint Joachim is pleased to have contributed to Dame Trueman’s charitable projects and offers its warmest congratulations

trueman-and-queen

A LONG-TIME Bahrain resident is to be honoured with an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) for her social work in Bahrain and abroad. Britain’s Queen Elizabeth is expected to present Yvonne Trueman with the award in a ceremony to held at Buckingham Palace, in London, UK, this summer. The Briton has been greatly involved in fund-raising in Bahrain and helping orphans in Belize, for more than 25 years. Mrs Trueman, who has been a resident of Bahrain for more than 25 years, found out she was on the honours list when she received a phone call from the UK.

It is a project she committed herself to more than 10 years ago, following the death of her son Captain Julian Pooley, a helicopter pilot in the British Army.

It was only after his death in a road accident while stationed in Belize in 1994 that she learned how much he had been doing for the children of an orphanage in Belize City, so she decided to carry on for him.

Wildtracks is a volunteer, non-profit organisation located on the north-eastern coast of Belize, which focuses on conservation and environmental education. Mrs Trueman’s fund-raising not only helps support the orphans at the Dorothy Menzies Child Care Home, but also to send some of the children for weekends at Wildtracks.

Mrs Trueman was already a veteran charity worker long before getting involved with the Belize orphanage, having started running to raise funds for the Muharraq Geriatric Hospital 20 years ago.

Thousands of dinars were raised over the course of the many kilometres she covered in four London marathons, two New York marathons and half a dozen local half marathons.

Mrs Trueman’s charity work also includes her involvement in the Dreamflight project, which takes seriously ill children on a 10-day journey-of-a-lifetime in Disney World, Orlando, Florida, US.

She has been Dreamflight Bahrain’s chief fund-raiser for the last five years, but has been involved in Dreamflight since her brother Derek Pereira founded it in 1986.

Every year, since 2001, Bahrain has been able to send two children on Dreamflight as ambassadors of the kingdom, joining hundreds of other seriously ill youngsters from the UK and Hong Kong on the holiday, which is supported by British Airways.

Mrs Trueman is also a pilot, who is encouraging flight training among nationals and residents of the Gulf states. She earned her private pilot’s licence following months of training in the UK more than 30 years ago.

Subsequently, she joined the family aviation business and travelled the world engaged in sales and marketing.

She also compiled several flight guides for private pilots and worked as a correspondent in Switzerland.

Finally, she worked as an aircraft broker (selling aircraft to the uninitiated), and it was in this capacity that she first came to Bahrain in the late 70s.

Bahrain resident Yvonne Trueman, who along with her brother Dreamflight founder Derek Pereira helped make Dreamflight Bahrain a reality in 2001, is getting ready to auction off her Ready Steady Cook signed apron.

Ms Trueman and her daughter, Katharine Pooley, are to appear in the popular television show Ready Steady Cook on BBC TV next Wednesday.

Her daughter – Katharine Pooley – interior designer to the super-rich

…she has designed everything from cottages to castles — one of which, Forter Castle in Scotland, she owns. Currently giving another castle a makeover for a client in Buckinghamshire

She comes from a family that relishes a challenge. Her father, Robert, has just received the MBE for services to aviation. He created a flight equipment company in 1957 after serving in the RAF, and it was he who bought then-derelict Forter Castle in Perthshire in 1990. The 1560s wreck is now a glamorous holiday let, having been passed on to his daughter who has filled it with Scottish charm.

Today, Pooley, owner of a high-end homewares boutique in Walton Street, SW3, and with a 40-strong design company, is at her Chelsea home to chat. However, she pounces on the phone and starts quick-fire bidding on lots in  Sotheby’s Duchess of Devonshire antiques sale to use in forthcoming projects for wealthy owners who want something with grand connections.

Katharine now has her own shop on London’s Walton Street and counted Mohamed Al Fayed, the owner of Harrods, as one of her first clients. Visitors to her shop now include many stars, including Elizabeth Hurley and Ivana Trump, and she has won two Decorex awards and an Andrew Martin award for interior design. Katharine works with her husband, Dan Voyce, has a staff of 20 and works on properties around the world.

been awarded the prestigious Fellowship of the
Royal Institute of Navigators at a special ceremony
in London. Dame Trueman received her award from
the HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh at the

Kensington
.

The award was made In recognition of her lifetime
devoted to general aviation as a cartographer, author
and pilot, and her active promotion of private flying
in the Middle East
. Dame Trueman is also active in
Bahrain charitable work and known for her role in
the Bahrain Dreamflight Project

Yvonne also served as a co-pilot during the Iran/Iraq war ferrying passengers out of Baghdad to Kuwait.

Hailing from Hatfield in England, she belongs to a family of dedicated charity workers. Between her and her two brothers, they have run over 50 marathons for good causes.

Personally, Yvonne has run four London and two New York marathons along with a number in Bahrain.

Yvonne’s first landing in Bahrain was almost 30 years ago when she came here with her husband, Dr Arthur Trueman.

She said: “He was the Chief Medical Officer at ALBA for 10 years until his death in 1987. He was very well-known in Bahrain – in those days Alba Medical Centre also looked after Gulf Air, British Airways and other major companies in Bahrain, it was a large practice with three major clinics for all the staff and their families.

“When my husband died, I decided to stay on for two years, but have been here since.”

Gulf Weekly – June 6 – 12, 2007
Bahrain’s superwoman


Lillian Burfield seated

A SPECIAL toast to the Queen will be raised in Bahrain today, as she celebrates her 80th birthday. For Bahrain resident Yvonne Trueman has a personal insight into the woman who has worn the crown for 53 years. For over 40 years, the Queen’s wardrobe has been designed by English couture house Hardie Amies, of Saville Row.

The mainstay of Hardie Amies was ‘Miss Lillian’, who has dressed and made many of the Queen’s clothes over the decades.

‘Miss Lillian’ is her professional name, but to Mrs Trueman, she is simply cousin Joyce.

There is another ‘royal’ link to Bahrain – for Joyce made the dress which the Queen wore when she met the late Amir HH Shaikh Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa, in 1979.

Four years ago, Joyce, whose family name is Burfield, visited Bahrain to give a talk to the American Woman’s Association.

Two years ago Joyce was awarded a Royal Victorian Order (RVO), which is given in recognition of loyal services to the royal family.

Last year, the family was again honoured when Yvonne was made a member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) by the Queen, in recognition of her work for charity here and abroad.

She received the award from the Queen in a Buckingham Palace ceremony last June.

“It was one of the most exciting things that has ever happened to me, I was thrilled,” she said.

Now retired and enjoying doing voluntary work, Joyce looks back fondly on her many visits to fit dresses for the Queen.

“I’ve visited all the royal homes, Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Balmoral, I have seen them all,” she said.

Stoke-Mandeville Hospital  Paedophile Ring

Multiple doctors accused of child rape were working at Stoke Mandeville, alongside Sir Jimmy Savile – who said “I own this hospital”

Bruce Bailey has been accused of raping a girl when she was 11 as she waited to have an operation

Former surgeon, Dr Bruce Bailey, at Stoke Mandeville hospital, accused of sexually abusing four-year-old girl while reading her bedtime stories

Bruce Bailey worked at world-renowned Stoke Mandeville Hospital

He is also accused of raping girl when she was 11 as she waited for her operation

Bailey, who died in 2001, is believed to have known paedophile Savile

He is second doctor at Bucks hospital accused of abusing patients

The alleged victim – who says she was also indecently assaulted by Savile – claims a junior doctor saw Bailey indecently touching her but nothing was done.

She is being represented by abuse lawyer Liz Dux, of Slater & Gordon, who is also working on behalf of 72 of the late Jim’ll Fix It star’s victims.

Ms Dux said: “My client’s horrific ­experiences show why a reform to the law to introduce mandatory reporting of abuse by those in regulated activities is so vital.”

His plastic surgery training was at Stoke Mandeville, where he worked with J P Reidy. From 1963 to 1990 he was a consultant at Stoke Mandeville.

And yet another paedophile doctor at Stoke-Mandeville where Savile had free rein.

Angry Judge Jails Pervert Doctor of Stoke Mandeville

A DOCTOR at Stoke Mandeville Hospital blindfolded and sexually assaulted a 12-year-old boy patient.

John Narendran, 56, was jailed for 21 months after Judge John Murchie refused to wait for pre-sentence reports saying the doctor had shown no remorse.

`This is an offence which is so serious that members of the public would not feel justice had been done if a judge did not pass an immediate custodial sentence,’ he said. `Doctors are trusted with the bodies of people. This was a bad breach of trust.’

The boy was injured playing football, Reading Crown Court heard. He was taken to the hospital near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, which is world-renowned for its treatment of spinal injuries.

One of the doctors who examined him was Sri Lankan-born Narendran, who introduced himself as Dr John, said Mr Simon Davis, prosecuting.

`Dr John’ told the boy’s parents he wanted to help their son and they should not tell anyone, as it was a case for `specialist treatment’.

The next day, another consultant said the boy could leave hospital, but `Dr John’ took the youngster and his parents to his own private room. `He rubbed cream into the boy’s back while his parents were waiting in an adjoining room,’ Mr Davis said. `Nothing untoward happened.’

The day after, however, Narendran contacted the parents, who took their son back. While they waited next door as before, he showed the boy a medical book with pictures of male and female genitalia.

The boy was asked to lie on the bed, blindfolded with a scarf and assaulted. He was upset and told his parents, and Narendran was arrested.

The boy broke down in tears several times while giving evidence through a video-link to court. He told the jury: `The doctor told me I could trust him and he would never hurt me.’

Narendran, a married man, of North Road, Alfriston, East Sussex, had denied indecent assault.

Andrew Cohen, defending, said the offence was `entirely out of character and can only be described as a moment of complete madness’. He said Narendran was a `very highly regarded’ man of `mature years’ who had fallen `as low as he can get’.

STOKE MANDEVILLE – DR ROGER BODLEYFor 25 years until 2009, he was the senior radiologist at Stoke Mandeville Hospital

The Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust is primarily based in the Leeds area, although not all of its trustees – listed as Luke Lucas, Dr Roger Bodley and Lady Gabrielle Greenbury on the Charity Commission’s website – still live there.

Roger Bodley, 65, is one of only three trustees of the charity. He bought a broad sword and ceremonial shield for a new charitable venture at Sir Jimmy’s Scottish cottage.A charity bought a sword and shield (left) for £700 to decorate a Scottish retreat for the disabled

He said: ‘We are hoping to put these items on the wall at his Glencoe cottage which we are going to convert into a kind of retreat for disabled people. It will be called Jimmy’s at Glencoe.’


About Dr Roger Nicholas Bodley of Stoke Mandeville

Dr Roger Nicholas Bodley was born in 1947 and the first directorship we have on file was in 1991 at Stoke Mandeville Hospital Education Centre Limited. Them most recent directorship was with Stoke Mandeville Hospital Education Centre Limited where they held the position of “Radiologist”. This company has been around since 12 Apr 1972 .

RBodley
Dr. Roger Bodley is an English medical graduate who came to Tasmania in 1976 and worked there for 6 years before returning to train as a radiologist. Worked in Oxford and Stoke Mandeville Hospital (which includes the National Spinal Injuries Centre, home of The Paralympics) and after retirement from the NHS returned part time to the beautiful NW Coast of Tasmania to work, teach and to build a home on Table Cape. Having come across Hempcrete at the London exhibition “Ecobuild” in 2008 I decided that my house was to be a showcase for this exciting material. The last few years have seen the slow realisation of that idea.

3.21 DC1 and DS6 interviewed Savile on tape under caution at his private office at Stoke Mandeville Hospital on 1st October 2009. Present with Savile was a ‘friend’ who was a trustee of the Jimmy Savile Stoke Mandeville Charitable Trust. It is not clear in what capacity this male was present as there is no indication that Savile required an appropriate adult and he was not acting as a legal representative.

youngest of the Trustees, spends regular days and nights at the
NSIC ( National Spinal Injuries Centre) and is totally dedicated to its work. Hoping to retire from
business and looking forward to staying completely involved
with the Trust.

Broadmoor:  It included a GP, a forensic psychiatrist, a local architect and, in his words, ‘a multi-millionaire owner of a security company’. 

The latter is how Savile always described Luke Lucas, although Lucas maintains he was ‘not a member of Broadmoor Hospital Management’.

His relationship with the royals, and particularly Prince Charles and Princess Diana, became deeper and more intimate during the time he was seconded by the government to fix the mess at Broadmoor.

The thing about me is I get things done. They tippled that I can get things done, and that I work “deep cover” … People don’t realise I’m deep cover until it’s too late.’

But it was not only marriage guidance that Jimmy Savile was sought out for. He also advised Prince Charles on key appointments to his staff.

After consultation with Savile and Richard Aylard, Major-General Sir Christopher Airy was appointed private secretary and treasurer to the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Janet Cope confirmed to me that Prince Charles used to phone Savile regularly at Stoke Mandeville. All three sent telegrams of congratulation when Jimmy Savile’s name finally made it onto the Queen’s birthday honours list in the late summer of 1990, as did Prince Andrew. The Duchess of York sent a homemade card while Angus Ogilvy sent his warmest wishes in a handwritten letter. It was the last list that Margaret Thatcher made recommendations for before she was forced to resign. And it was her letter that informed Jimmy Savile that they had succeeded in getting him the knighthood they both desired.

He took as his guest Clifford Graham, the man who had rubber stamped his appointment to the Broadmoor Hospital task force.

For Jimmy Savile, normal life meant being collected on the quayside by his driver from Broadmoor Hospital, before being whisked off to the high-security hospital in Berkshire to begin the round of constant touring all over again. Broadmoor, Stoke Mandeville and Leeds General Infirmary After the weeks at sea it was back to the hospital beds, locked wards and wheelchairs: the captive audiences.

Luke Lucas:

Luke Lucas, a trustee of both Jimmy Savile’s charitable trusts. He had known Savile for 42 years, worked for him full-time for the first seven years and described him as his ‘best friend’, although he refused point blank to talk about him. ‘I was involved in everything, believe me, and if I wanted to tell the 42 years of stories it would need to be a very thick book,’ he said. ‘Thicker than the Old Testament.’

Five weeks before he died, Savile had gone on a cruise on the Queen Elizabeth for its maiden voyage around Britain. Luke Lucas, Savile’s long-time friend, colleague and a trustee of both the charities that bore his name, accompanied him.

Savile told me that Lucas had been sleeping rough under Bournemouth pier when he walked into the Maison Royale nightclub and asked for a job, something that Lucas insists is not true.

On that morning in central London Lucas explained he began working for Savile in Bournemouth and never stopped. He was a trustee of both Savile’s charitable trusts and clearly a member of one of Savile’s teams, the small groups of people he could call on in the places he variously called home.

Image result for BOUrnemouth the Maison Royale

I decided to ask Lucas about how Savile had been handed the reins of the Maison Royale. Savile had told me that the owners had called him out of the blue and made an offer he ‘could not refuse’.

Three years later, when his consultancy deal came to an end, he claimed to have spectacularly transformed the fortunes of the failing venture. It was not exactly how Lucas remembered it, though.

Image result for John Yates was found dead in a swimming pool in 1972 the Maison Royale

Instead, he shook his head and commented what a sad story it was: the owner of the Maison Royale being found dead in his swimming pool a couple of weeks after Jimmy took over. I began to wonder whether perhaps the great secret lurking behind the impenetrable façade of Jimmy Savile was that he had been responsible for a death, or worse still, he had killed someone himself. The way he talked about the summary justice meted out to those who caused trouble in his dancehalls, of his pride in having former Sonderkommandos under his command, and now the troubling image of a body in a swimming pool all contributed to the darkening cloud of doubt in my mind.

Some time later I asked Savile about what Lucas had said. He didn’t blink: ‘He fell on his sword, poor bastard.’

He quickly changed the subject, insisting that Luke Lucas was one of the few people who listened to his advice and acted on it. ‘Now he’s a multi-millionaire and head of one of the biggest security firms in the country,’ said Savile, looking smug.

In Plain Sight: the Life and Lies of Jimmy Savile Dan Davies

After Mr Davies appeared at a book event in Edinburgh, a local newspaper – – as reported by the Echo – said he believed Savile could have been behind Mr Yates’ death.

http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/13636110.Why_John_Yates__death_made_author_question__quot_darkness_quot__at_heart_of_Jimmy_Savile/


John Yates, tragically, was found dead in a swimming pool in 1972 but the Maison Royale carried on and by the May, Cherries chairman Harold Walker was also chairman of the Maison Royale group.

And he came up with a new signing, recruiting one of Britain’s top DJs, Jimmy Savile.

His job? Entertainments and promotion consultant and he arrived at Le Cardinal in person in the May of that year.

Jimmy had a flat on Bournemouth’s East Cliff ND spent five years as consultant, pepping up the pace at the night club and featuring in some lively press stories.

Savile bought the flat on Bournemouth’s East Cliff and moved in during April 1972.

He kept the flat and visited occasionally and it was reportedly sold for charity when he died in 2011, aged 84.

He worked as a public relations consultant for the Maison Royale/Le Cardinal nightlclub complex on Glen Fern Road from 1973 until 1978.

Image result for BOUrnemouth 1972 the Maison Royale

A year after he joined, Jimmy was appalled to discover that the management had bought a nude painting of Princess Anne riding on a horse along a beach for the club foyer.

He demanded that it be taken down.

the club was attracting throngs of people and big-name stars.

The list of other celebrities appearing at the Maison Royale complex over the years reads like a 1960s and ’70s roll call.

They included Roy Castle, Rod Hull, Cliff Richard (who came to speak about his faith), The Bachelors, Vera Lynn, Helen Shapiro, Leslie Crowther, Frankie Howerd, Kathy Kirby, Billy Dainty, Joe Henderson, Stan Stennett, Matt Munro and even “Amarillo” singer Tony Christie.

Girls as young as 12 or 13 well under the minimum age of 16 had attended the Maison Royale discos and consumed alcohol, police said, adding that more than 40 officers were required to deal with the thousands of people leaving the discos.

A midnight curfew was imposed.

It was the last straw.

By August 1983 the Echo front page broke the news that Maison Royale was closing.

Its boss blamed the midnight curfew and said that, despite other clubs operating in the town centre, his complex always seemed to be the scapegoat for trouble in the town streets.

Since Jimmy Savile’s death, I have tried to get Luke Lucas to elaborate on his relationship with Savile but he has consistently refused to comment about his friend. ‘I did not discuss Jim at the height of his popularity,’ he says, ‘and nor will I now.’

In Plain Sight: the Life and Lies of Jimmy Savile by Dan Davies

Savile befriended Julie Ferguson  ^, one of the “waitresses”  (H) when she was 15 yrs old.  She was one of the few people named in his will.

She wrote the poems on Jimmy Savile’s headstone, recalled first encountering Savile when he climbed Ben Nevis to test a tent in Arctic conditions. She and a friend were invited back to his hotel.

Jimmy Savile  His last will and testament, dated July 2006, put the gross value of his estate at £4,366,178, of which around £3.6 million was earmarked for charity. It was a story that got unanimously positive coverage.

The rest was to be shared out among his family and friends. Eight people, including two couples, were to benefit from the annual interest on a £600,000 trust fund.

They included Savile’s nephew Roger Foster and niece Amanda McKenna; Sylvia Nicol, a member of his original fund-raising team at Stoke Mandeville Hospital; Mavis Price, who got to know him through Leeds General Infirmary and went on to manage the Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust; Donald Bennett, the former transport manager at Broadmoor Hospital, and his wife Josie; and

Roddy and Julie Ferguson , the latter being someone Savile had befriended in Fort William in 1969 when she was 15.

2014

JULIE Ferguson has had a 30-year relationship with the Hebridean island of North Uist, which is where her sea captain husband Roddy was born, but she thought long and hard about actually moving to live there. Julie works for a specialist recruitment company, which she can do from anywhere in the world, and while living in Oban also ran a B&B.

How’s about that then? Sir Jimmy Savile’s friends fix him a headstone to remember

The words were written by Julie Ferguson, described as a good friend of Savile.  The headstone overlooks the scchool Harvey Proctor attended,

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2206085/Sir-Jimmy-Saviles-friends-fix-headstone-remember-complete-unexpected-gaffe.html

The man was not at all liked by folks in the Glencoe and Lochaber area. Mind you, his housekeeper, Julie Ferguson from Oban, thought him wonderful…

https://ianbone.wordpress.com/2012/10/25/cops-raid-remote-glencoe-cottage-where-savile-entertained-prince-charles/

Savile then went on to tell me a little about the time in 1999 when Prince Charles came for lunch at the three-bedroomed cottage he’d recently bought near Glencoe.

When Savile learned the Prince of Wales was to visit the area and present a minibus to a mountain rescue team, he issued his invitation. His friend, Julie Ferguson, was asked to source local salmon, lamb and a bottle of Laphroaig whisky, which he knew the prince liked.

Special Branch arrived ahead of the prince to conduct a sweep of the building, before Jimmy Savile greeted his special guest. He was wearing a kilt of Lochaber tartan, a green military-style shirt and his Royal Marines Green Beret. Ferguson and two friends acted as waitresses, each in monogrammed aprons bearing the letters ‘H’, ‘R’ and ‘H’ respectively – a special touch Savile was especially pleased with.

They served Savile and his guest the lamb and the salmon, which, Ferguson later revealed, had been obtained from a local poacher.

From the Daily Record:
The allegations were also rubbished by a Scottish pal and confidante of Sir Jimmy. Julie Ferguson met him as a teenager in Fort William in 1969 and became friends with him. She said: “This is shocking and cowardly and they wouldn’t have dared to do it if he were still alive. I met Jimmy in a group of six teenagers and he never behaved inappropriately towards any of us. If anything untoward had gone on, the Press would have published it years ago.”


Savile was born in 1926 – so would have been 42-43 when he met her …. strange to befriend a group of teenage girls and stay in contact with (at least) one of them – “with whom he often used to stay in the Hebrides” – without her suspecting anything.

Dr Bodley qualified from Oxford in 1973 and shortly after came to Burnie as an RMO where he worked with Donough O’Brien, John Kille, Don McTaggart and Graham Standen amongst others.

He and his wife (Dr Palmer), joined the Wynyard GP practice as trainees and then associates.

It was a discussion with radiologist Paul Huang about a patient led to a curiosity about interventional radiology and his subsequent return to Radiology training in Oxford in 1981. For 25 years until 2009, he was the senior radiologist at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, an acute hospital for 500,000 population as well as the home of The National Spinal Injuries Centre.

His special interests include spinal and interventional radiology.

MISC:

A younger Salmon had focussed on a career in medicine, first coming to Stoke Mandeville Hospital, the site of many of the allegations made against him, in 1961, for a paediatric secondment, lasting six months. His medical career had then taken him to hospitals in Middlesex, London, and Ibadan, Nigeria, before he had taken up a senior registrar position in Lincoln, Lincolnshire. Salmon worked as a locum consultant in Maidestone, Gravesend and Dartford, before being headhunted for a top position in developmental medicine in Oxford.


 

In 1969 the doctor, now specialising in children’s growth disorders and neurological problems, such as migraines, returned to Stoke Mandeville where serial pervert Savile targeted patients for sex attacks during his time as a fundraiser there.

Salmon’s son had appeared on Savile’s Jim’ll Fix it programme.

One of his patients and alleged victims recalled seeing a picture from Jim’ll Fix It hanging on Salmon’s consulting room wall. The black and white photograph, shown to the jury, showed a young boy holding a microphone from when Salmon’s eldest son Martin had appeared on the popular television show alongside Irish horse racing commentator Peter O’Sullivan.

My eldest son contacted the BBC and said he would like to go on Jim’ll Fix It,” Salmon explained. “Martin was a bit of a celebrity when he appeared on it.” Salmon’s son, the eldest of two, changed his surname, moved out of the family home and cut ties with his father following his previous conviction for child sex assaults. In 1969 Salmon had set up the developmental assessment unit at the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital, only the fourth such unit in the country at the time. He was also instrumental in the building of a special care baby unit at the hospital and helped to raise between £50,000 and £70,000 for much needed equipment for the hospital’s paediatric unit.

Salmon worked at Stoke Mandeville until the late 1980s, when he was convicted for sexually abusing youngsters and subsequently jailed in 1990.

Before this, his special interest and work in the field of migraine led to him being appointed as a consultant paediatrician of the British Migraine Association in London, and he was the first doctor in the country to run trials of a pioneering preventative medicine.

Salmon authored 38 scientific papers and a text book used by doctors, chaired the World Paediatric Congress held in 1986 and served on a number of professional bodies, including the Royal College of Physicians.

Shortly before his first arrest, Salmon was hailed by Princess Diana for taking 300 ill and disabled children to Disney World in Florida.

dreamflight-auto-bio-history-salmon

He was asked to join the inaugural Dreamflight charity trip, co-founded by former British Airways cabin crew member Patricia Pearce in 1987, as chief medical officer. The former doctor said he was phoned by British Airways and asked to pick 300 ‘very sick and handicapped’ children who would benefit from the once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Princess Diana waved the flight off from Heathrow Airport, with 298 young children aboard, including one of the girls who later claimed Salmon indecently touched her during a medical appointment. The former doctor said she had been suffering from depression after a bout of glandular fever and he thought the trip would lift her spirits.

“He arranged a special trip to Disney World.Bruce Bailey was the best five days of my life, I will never forget it.” The charity has since taken more than 5,000 children abroad on its holidays.

On release from prison, Salmon lived at Woodgreen in the New Forest area of Hampshire with his wife Susie, pursuing his interests in butterflies and photography. More recently the couple set up home in Park Lane, Salisbury, before he was once more charged with sexually abusing youngsters. His wife has stood by him, supporting him each day in court during his five-week trial.

Salmon was congratulated by Princess Diana for his work on a Dreamflight charity trip, which took 300 ill children to Disney World in Florida.

Dreamflight is a registered UK charity that changes young lives through taking seriously ill and disabled children, without their parents, on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida. The first Dreamflight trip was in November 1987


Dreamflight was co-founded in 1986 by Patricia Pearce and Derek Pereira, both of whom worked for British Airways. Patricia had previously helped to organise a BA project, Skyride, which raised money to take &underprivileged children on a one-hour ‘Christmas party’ flight. Patricia and Derek decided to go a step further and raise money to take deserving children to Walt Disney World, and Dreamflight was born.

Pereira had just helped organise a one-hour flight to give children the chance to experience a plane trip and thought that he could do something much more exciting.

At a party for the participants he announced that he wanted to take a plane of children to Florida the following year.

The following morning he received offers of support, which led to the start of a mission that gives hundreds of children the chance to fly to Florida, US, and visit Disneyworld, Seaworld, and other places every year.

Determined to make Dreamflight a reality, Mr Pereira approached the then airline chief medical officer who agreed to pass the information on to the BA chairman Sir Colin Marshall, who turned down the idea.

Mr Pereira promised to do the flight with no cost to the airline by raising money.

Sir Colin gave him the go-ahead but there were still major obstacles to overcome, such as finding money for the flight’s tariff of $100,000 (BD37,800).

However, a British Post Office party brought in $2,000 (BD756), followed by a donation of $10,000 (BD3,780) from an investment company and that was the start.

Children chosen for the trip were sick, but they had to be fit enough to travel.

Although Dreamflight was supposed to be a one-off event there was so much support for it that it continued on an annual basis and was registered as a charity, with Mr Pereira as a trustee.

 Stoke Mandeville Hospital Our history

The National Spinal Injuries Centre (NSIC) is the oldest, and one of the largest  spinal injuries centres in the world. It was founded by neurologist Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, in 1944 to treat servicemen who had sustained spinal cord injuries in World War II.

Ludwig Guttmann

Before this, the majority of people with spinal cord injury died from complications within a year of injury. In 1948, Professor Guttmann began using sport as a vital ingredient in rehabilitation programmes and on 29 July organised a competition for 16 paralysed men and women to coincide with the opening ceremony of the 1948 Olympic Games in London.

The Stoke Mandeville Games for wheelchair athletes began and was widely seen as the moment that the Paralympic movement was born.

Professor Guttman received a knighthood in recognition of his contribution to the Paralympics and the ground-breaking techniques in rehabilitation he introduced, and staff continue Dr Guttmann’s revolutionary work to this day.

The experience gained in treating and preventing complications, together with an increase in injuries caused by road traffic accidents, led to a rapid expansion of the centre from an initial 26 beds to 190 beds in the main part of the hospital.

Jimmy opening unit

In 1980, severe weather conditions caused structural damage to some of the wards at Stoke Mandeville which housed the centre. With the area health authority unable to meet the estimated repair bill, the centre’s future looked in doubt. The implications would have been inconceivable – patients faced the prospect of receiving care in non-specialist hospitals without the welath of expertise and knowledge built up at the NSIC over the years.

Sir Jimmy Savile, at this time working as a volunteer porter at the hospital, set about organising an ambitious fundraising campaign to create a purpose built spinal cord injuries centre. Within three years of the launch, and with the generosity of the public behind him, Sir Jimmy had raised an incredible £10m. The new facilities opened in 1983, and Sir Jimmy, now the NSIC’s patron, continues to take an active interest in the centre.

Further allegations about what British Airways knew about the alleged crimes of pilot Simon Wood surface in BBC report

20 March 2015

The law firm acting on behalf of alleged child abuse victims of a British Airways pilot, Simon Wood, has confirmed that they are looking into reports that the airline had been told twice about concerns about his behaviour in Kenya.

According to the BBC, Mike Johnson, another BA pilot who was on the British board of Nairobi-based charity, Nyumbani, informed two senior managers at BA in 2004 that Wood had been asked to leave the charity for taking inappropriate images of children.

In 2008 the mother of an 11-year-old girl, who claimed she had been raped at his hotel, sent an email to a member of BA staff involved in charity work in Kenya.

The email reads: “Parents are complaining…that Mr Simon is using their daughters to satisfy his sexual desires”. “…whenever Mr Simon is in Nairobi he takes them to the hotel where he stays”.

However BA appeared to take no action against Wood, allowing him to allegedly abuse children in several African countries.

First Officer Simon Wood, from Hertfordshire, committed suicide in 2013 after he was charged with indecent assault and making and possessing indecent photographs of a child.

It is alleged that Wood molested over 30 children during stopovers in Kenya and Uganda between 2001 and 2013 whilst flying for British Airways.

Nichola Marshall, head of the international abuse team at Leigh Day, who is acting for 35 alleged victims, claims that BA had a duty of care toward the children allegedly abused in the African countries he visited whilst flying for the airline.

She added that these latest allegations could strengthen the legal case against BA.

The alleged victims are currently aged between 6 and 24 years of age, and were allegedly abused in African schools and orphanages over a number of years by Wood.

The allegations range from molestation to rape. Wood was struck by a train near Potters Bar station on August 18 2013. An inquest into his death in July 2014 recorded a verdict of suicide at Hertfordshire Coroner’s Court in July 2014.

Nichola Marshall from the international claims team at Leigh Day said: “We allege that British Airways had a duty of care toward these children in the schools and orphanages, that Wood was involved in through the airline’s charitable work, and through his respected position as a British Airways pilot.

“We are looking into the allegations that BA were told on two occasions that one of their pilots could be a danger to children but continued to allow and even encourage him to volunteer in projects they supported, even giving him awards for his charity work.

“If correct, these reports strengthen our case against British Airways and we want them to tell us exactly what they knew and when they were aware of the activities of Mr Wood and what they did about it.”

Bharti Patel, CEO of ECPAT UK, a child rights charity campaigning for the rights of children everywhere to be protected from abuse by British nationals travelling or residing abroad, today said the apparent lack of action by BA looked like a serious breach.

She commented “If British Airways were informed of Simon Wood’s alleged abuse of children, they had a duty to act with due diligence and intervene to remove Simon Wood from his role and investigate the complaints of abuse against him.

“Any error of judgement in this due diligence process is a serious breach when it comes to protection of children. Child abuse is a serious crime and a violation of children’s rights. It can leave children traumatised for long periods.

“Access to remedy and appropriate compensation is essential to help children begin the process of recovery and rehabilitation.”

BA said it cannot comment while legal proceedings continue, but has released a statement. “We were shocked and horrified to hear the allegations against Simon Wood and our sympathies are with the victims. “These allegations have been raised in the context of litigation which will be robustly defended.”

Paedophile pilot’s victims to get cash payouts from British Airways:

  • British Airways agreed to pay damages to 38 victims of paedophile pilot 
  • First Officer Simon Wood, 54, molested young girls during overseas trips 
  • Mail revealed he groomed victims with BA-branded toys, colouring books
  • Wood was eventually charged with separate child sex offences in the UK

Bartle Frere, ex-BA pilot, jailed for child sex abuse

  • 17 June 2015

A paedophile who carried out child sex crimes during stopovers while working as a British Airways pilot has been jailed for 12 years and six months.

Bartle Frere, of Shipton Gorge, Dorset, was convicted of 16 sex offences, including sexual assault, following a retrial at Bournemouth Crown Court.

Frere was found guilty of arranging the sexual abuse of a child in India at an earlier trial in October 2014.

He was arrested as he got off a flight at Heathrow Airport in November 2013.

A total of 25 charges against the 51-year-old, which also included making indecent images, dated back to 2001.

DVDs and Viagra

The Crown sought a retrial on 16 counts the jury at his first trial failed to reach verdicts on.

During the retrial, the court heard police had searched Frere’s home, near Bridport, the day before his arrest and seized DVDs of underage boys wrestling naked, as well as boy’s underwear and Viagra.

The jury also heard details of Frere’s stopovers in India while he was working for BA.

He befriended youngsters in one fishing village near Chennai, handing out gifts including mobile phones.

The court was also told Frere searched the internet on his phone to find out “where to pick up underage boys in Bangkok”.

‘Terrible crimes’

Frere, who no longer works for BA, told the court he liked to help boys purely to encourage them and see them develop.

After sentencing, Det Sgt Dave Wise, of Dorset Police’s child abuse investigations team, described Frere’s actions as “terrible crimes”.

“Frere targeted vulnerable children to exploit them for his own purpose and we hope that the lengthy sentence brings some closure to them and goes some way to repairing the harm he has caused to his victims and their families.”

He also thanked British Airways for its co-operation.

A spokesman for BA said the firm “took the allegations very seriously and co-operated with the police throughout their investigation”.

Wessex Crown Prosecution Service thanked those who gave evidence.

“Their courage and determination has contributed greatly to the successful prosecution of someone who poses a very significant risk to young boys.”

An official video made by Frere for a leading prep school in the South-East is accompanied by the BA theme tune – Sous le Dome Epais (Flower Duet).

Frere, who was educated at £10,830 a term Westminster School, whose alumni include Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, was arrested

Frere, whose unusual Christian name is a diminutive of Bartholomew, is from a family with an impressive pedigree and history which saw noticeable service in the empire in war and peace.

He is directly related to Sir Henry Bartle Edward Frere (1815 – 1884) who was created a Baronet in 1876 after a long and distinguished career in the Indian Civil Service.

In 1872 he had negotiated the abolition of the slave trade with the Sultan of Zanzibar. In 1877 he was appointed to be the Governor of the Cape Province, South Africa to implement the policy of confederation.

However, his approach in refusing to speak to the native chiefs provoked a war with the Zulu tribes, the first battle of which in 1879 ended in a disastrous defeat for the British army.

Despite eventually winning the trust of the Boer element of the proposed confederation he was recalled to London in 1880 and censured for reckless conduct.

Another wealthy ancestor, George Frere (1774-1854), inherited Twyford House, a Queen Anne mansion in Thorley, near Bishop’s Stortford, in Herts, and was founder and president of the Law Society.

Frere’s sister Sarah Frere, 51, refused to comment at her home in Sheringham, Norfolk.

She said: ‘I am not saying anything. If anything has happened, it will cause immense distress and I am not saying any more.’

The Dreamflight
Quote:
Three hundred terminally ill children experienced the trip of a lifetime last year, thanks to British Airways and the Rotary Club of London, England. Designated “Dreamflight,” the trip was highlighted by a visit to mega-amusement parks Disney World and SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida, U.S.A. While British Airways provided the air transportation, the London club paid the Florida hotel accommodations for all participants, including 70 medical personnel. For the children, it was perhaps a last dream, but one come true.

Savile’s death on the morning of October 29, 2011, was certified by Prof Alistair Hall, his cardiologist, who had been called to his flat by the concerned caretaker and family members.

Professor Alistair Hall, the award-winning Leeds cardiologist and Jimmy’s close friend, was one of the last to see Jimmy alive. He had called at his flat on the Friday night before he died and unsuccessfully tried to persuade him to go into hospital. Jimmy had said that he wanted to die at home in his own bed. He seemed to know the end was nigh.

Professor Alistair Hall, senior consultant cardiologist at Leeds General Infirmary and St James’s Hospital, said: “I am 100 per cent in agreement that the wonderful Sir Jimmy should be made Freeman of the City. “Despite his fame he still volunteers at the hospital and the list of good work and fundraising he has done is too long to list. “He has supported a lot of cardiology research and helped with The Family Heart Study and toured on the big red bus across the UK. He has helped us to fundraise to buy a special scanner and only recently donated a large amount of money to fund scholarships for junior doctors.” The senior cardiologist, who carried out Sir Jimmy’s quadruple heart bypass operation a decade ago, said the broadcaster and sportsman was an amazing person who fully deserved to be honoured publically. Charities Sir Jimmy has raised more than 40m during his lifetime for various charities, including the Leeds Hospitals. He has run 217 marathons and countless fun runs. Catholic Church bosses in Leeds also backed calls for Sir Jimmy to be honoured. A spokesman for the Diocese of Ripon and Leeds, said: “Over the years Sir Jimmy has done lots of good work for the church. As long as the 1960s while busy being famous, he used to help with collections at the former Sacred Heart church. Mavis Price, Sir Jimmy’s friend and one of his helpers, said: “It is high time Jimmy was made a Freeman. I have written to the council before about it. He does so much.”

Jimmy Savile’s close links with police are coming to light

During the interview, Savile, by then aged 82, stressed his social connections with senior officers in his hometown of Leeds, and indicated that he could call in “favours” from them.

There is some evidence that these were not the mere ramblings of an ageing celebrity. The 44-page report – by Surrey Police into its own failed investigation into sexual abuse at a children’s home in Staines – details how an unnamed inspector in West Yorkshire Police had telephoned Surrey on Savile’s behalf to arrange the interview.

It was a brazen breach of police protocol. Here was a suspected sex offender getting a senior officer to broker a meeting with detectives. It enabled Savile to dictate the terms of his interrogation. The meeting took place not at a police station, but in the altogether cosier surroundings of his home-from-home at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire, where he also abused patients.

Bruce Bailey Fellowship

Mr. Bruce Bailey, Retired Senior Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, United Kingdom passed away in April 2001. He was responsible for training many Plastic Surgeons from India including Dr S Raja Sabapathy. He opened the windows of opportunities for many young surgeons from our country. In the memory of this great man “Bruce Bailey Traveling Fellowship” was set up by Ganga Hospital. Bruce visited India many times and loved it. It is felt that setting up a Fellowship to enable a British Trainee visit our unit for a period of 6 to 8 weeks is a good way to keep the memory of the great man alive. It surely will build bridges between the two countries to mutual advantage. The Fellowship is recognized and announced in the newsletters of the British Association of Plastic Surgeons and the British Society for Surgery of the Hand for the information of the interested candidates.

Dream holiday for special children

By REBECCA TORR
FOR the past 10 years Dreamflight Bahrain has annually given two sick Bahraini children the holiday of a lifetime to the UK and US.

The two children chosen are usually from underprivileged backgrounds who would never have the opportunity to enjoy such an experience.

Hassan Ahmed, 13, and Ali Ebrahim, 10, are the latest two to benefit from the British charity Dreamflight’s unique trip.

Nomination

The holiday includes two days in London and 10 days in Florida where they visit Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios, Sea World and other attractions.

Bahraini children are nominated for the trip by doctors at the Salmaniya Medical Complex (SMC) and then a panel of medical experts in the UK narrows them down to two.

The two children chosen from Bahrain join 190 other seriously ill children, aged between eight and 14, from the UK, Chernobyl, Ukraine, and Hong Kong.

“I am so excited to visit these two cities as I have never been there before,” Ali told the GDN prior to travelling.

“I want to try all the rides in Disneyland.”

His partner on the trip Hassan cheerfully revealed he planned to visit every part of Disneyland and watch the many parades there.

“I feel so excited and lucky to be chosen for this trip,” he said.

The Bahraini children are accompanied throughout the trip by an escort and once in the US the 192 children are split into 12 groups of 16 children.

The groups are named after a children’s character and the Bahraini children are usually in the Donald Duck group.

Each group is accompanied by eight escorts, as well as a group leader, paediatric doctor, a senior nurse, two nurses, a physiotherapist and two non-medical helpers.

There are also extra escorts on hand to help. The aim is to have one escort for every child.

To prepare them for the trip the children are given free English lessons from Berlitz Language Centre and taken for shopping to buy new clothes and other items.

Speedy Motors provides free transport to them during preparations for the trip and to the airport and Batelco gives the children mobile phones so they can keep in touch with their families while they are away.

Awesome

The first two children to participate in Dreamflight in 2001 were Fatima Mohammed Hassan and Zainab Rasool Al Awani, who were 13-year-old back then.

“I loved the whole thing, it was awesome,” said Fatima, years after returning from the trip.

“I had a wonderful time in Florida and London.

“I loved the Magic Kingdom the most, the rides were awesome.

“I am back in school and I am telling all my friends about my holiday and they’re very happy for me.”

Fatima proudly announced at the time that she had made a total of 60 friends during her trip.

“Ask me all their names, I know them all by heart,” she said.

“I am writing to them all and I can’t wait to hear from them.”

Dreamflight is a UK-registered charity that was started in 1987 by its two founders, Derek Pereira and Pat Pearce, who were both with British Airways.

Mr Pereira had first become involved with the disabled when he volunteered to help at the Stoke Mandeville handicapped games in England in 1983.

It was three years later that the former British Airways flight engineer came up with the idea of the “Dreamflight”, but at the time he thought it could never be more than a fantasy.

He had just helped organise a one-hour flight to give children the chance to experience a plane trip and thought that he could do something much more exciting.

At a party for the participants he announced that he wanted to take a plane of children to Florida the following year.

The following morning he received offers of support, which led to the start of a mission that gives hundreds of children the chance to fly to Florida, US, and visit Disneyworld, Seaworld, and other places every year.

Determined to make Dreamflight a reality, Mr Pereira approached the then airline chief medical officer who agreed to pass the information on to the BA chairman Sir Colin Marshall, who turned down the idea.

Mr Pereira promised to do the flight with no cost to the airline by raising money.

Sir Colin gave him the go-ahead but there were still major obstacles to overcome, such as finding money for the flight’s tariff of $100,000 (BD37,800).

However, a British Post Office party brought in $2,000 (BD756), followed by a donation of $10,000 (BD3,780) from an investment company and that was the start.

Children chosen for the trip were sick, but they had to be fit enough to travel.

Although Dreamflight was supposed to be a one-off event there was so much support for it that it continued on an annual basis and was registered as a charity, with Mr Pereira as a trustee.

The charity is normally only open to sick children from the UK, but Dreamflight was brought to Bahrain 10 years ago by Mr Pereira and his Bahrain-based sister Yvonne Trueman.

It was initially meant to be a one-time arrangement, but with the support of British Airways, the British Embassy and the local community, Bahrain has been able to secure two places a year since then.

“When my brother Derek came to Bahrain in 2000 we discussed how to bring this wonderful opportunity to sick children in Bahrain,” Ms Trueman told the GDN.

“We talked with Jane Bishop who was then country manager at British Airways.

“She and her fellow colleagues formed a team and launched Dreamflight Bahrain.

“The first Bahraini children chosen for Dreamflight were Zainab Rasool and Fatima Mohammed Hasan, who were both aged 13 at the time.

“Since then Bahrain has been fortunate enough to have secured two places each year to join up with the other children in London.

“Bahrain, Hong Kong and Ukraine are only the other countries to have this opportunity.”

Ms Trueman said Dreamflight was a trip of a lifetime for sick children who would not otherwise have the chance of such an experience.

“It’s an opportunity given to a special child, one who has a terminal illness or a condition that could shorten their life,” she said.

“For example children with sickle cell may have a certain life span and this is an opportunity of a lifetime that these children will remember forever.

“A sick child doesn’t know what tomorrow will bring, so this really is a holiday of a lifetime in their lifetime.”

Former GDN reporter Eunice Del Rosario, who was a Dreamflight escort for Bahraini girls Mariam Hassan and Ruqaya Mohammed in 2006, said she felt honoured to accompany the children on the trip that gave them a once in a lifetime opportunity.

She said the Bahraini children who have gone on to enjoy their dream holidays have not only represented Bahrain well, but also the rest of the Arab world.

“They all served as wonderful ambassadors, especially when Dreamflight first accepted Bahraini children into its programme in 2001 – a time when the world was at a very tumultuous time,” she said.

“When I met the first two Bahraini girls who went on the holiday in 2001, the first word they uttered upon their return was ‘awesome’.

“After working with Dreamflight for seven years, I know more than ever that we can all learn a lot from children.

“To them, there is no such thing as the colour of your skin, the language you speak, your medical condition or your handicap. They all are passionate about life.

“I am sure Dreamflight Bahrain will continue its great success and I look forward to volunteering some more here in the US in the near future.

“I am happy that I was part of something that touched the lives of many.”

Dreamflight in Bahrain is co-ordinated by Debbie Beedie and finance co-ordinator Maha Al Abbas.

Ms Al Abbas has been involved since the very beginning and co-ordinates with Salmaniya Medical Complex officials, the parents and children.

She said working with Dreamflight had made her feel very fortunate to have two healthy children, her daughters Layal, 14, and Razan, 11 and had made her really appreciate all that she has.

Confidence

It was also a delight to be able to give happiness to families and put a smile on a sick child’s face, she added.

“All of the families have really been appreciative of Dreamflight and felt that we gave their children a chance they wouldn’t normally have,” said Ms Al Abbas.

“This is because most of them would never have the chance to go on an airplane or visit Europe and the US.

“The furthest most of them would be able to travel is Saudi or Iran and then that would be by bus.”

She said the trip had a very positive impact on the children that participate and they come back more confident and outgoing and it gives them a happy memory to recall when life gets tough for them.

“They come back speaking better English because they are surrounded by English speaking kids,” said Ms Al Abbas.

“The children that are chosen to go on Dreamflight come from very poor backgrounds and just being on the flight is something for them.

“On the trip they have seen children that are sicker than them so they come back making the best out of life and become more helpful to others.”

More than 1,000 registered and licensed doctors have criminal convictions… including possession of indecent images of children, sexual assault and threats to kill

  • Disgraced medics have been allowed to keep their jobs despite criminal offences
  • Figures reveal there are 1,067 registered doctors with criminal convictions
  • This includes Dr Steven Burn, 53, a consultant cardiologist, who was able to keep his job despite being found with 65 child abuse images on his work computer
  • Campaigners reacted furiously and said patients should not be kept in the dark

Steven Burn, 53, a consultant cardiologist, was able to keep his job despite being found with 65 child abuse images on his work computer.

The cardiologist, was arrested after IT staff at the Royal Derby Hospital (pictured) found indecent images of children on his work PC while checking to see if it had been infected by a computer virus

Dr Burn, a heart doctor, was arrested after IT staff at the Royal Derby Hospital found indecent images on his work PC while checking to see if it had been infected by a computer virus.

He was convicted by a court of possessing indecent images.

Some of these pictures featured children alleged to be as young as seven, while Burn had also downloaded Japanese ‘Hentai’ animated pornographic images and made Google searches under the headings ‘bestiality’, ‘little Asian girls’, little Japanese girls’ and ‘beautiful little boys’.

But he managed to avoid being struck off after a disciplinary panel at the MPTS ruled Burn should be allowed to return to medicine following a 12-month suspension.

The panel opted to give him the chance to resume his 28-year-old career after he insisted he would ‘rather die than reoffend’.

Figures obtained by MailOnline reveal three doctors have convictions for possessing or taking indecent photographs of children, while three licensed doctors have committed sexual assault.

In another high-profile case, Dr Rupert Pemsel, 32, a trainee anaesthetist, kept his job despite paying a call girl for sex while on duty at a maternity hospital.

The disgraced married father-of-two was branded ‘sordid’ and ‘abhorrent’ after he admitted meeting prostitute Leanne Davies, 29, while still in his hospital gown or ‘scrubs’.

But at a tribunal in Manchester last March, he escaped with just a ten-month suspension rather than being struck off the medical register. Pemsel’s barrister proposed no action should be taken against his client because he was an ‘excellent doctor’.

The medic, whose wife is a GP, had blamed his behaviour on an addiction to internet pornography and stress from helping sick children in Uganda. 

‘To my mind, someone [like Dr Steven Burn], should never be reinstated. I don’t think any person would want a doctor with that kind of history, even for themselves, let alone their children. It’s appalling. That should be that.

Within medicine, there needs to be more independent bodies with no conflict of interest involved in decisions. They should include members of the public as well as a mix of professions who could come to much better decisions in terms of punishments given.’

Roger Goss of Patient Concern told MailOnline: ‘The government should legally oblige the General Medical Council (GMC) to tell patients if a doctor still practising has been found guilty of any crime that could make some people wish to avoid all contact.’

Paedophile doctor,  Dr Jonathan Walsh,  jailed over vile child abuse videos
March 20, 2017

A senior children’s doctor has been jailed for distributing horrific films of the worst kind of child abuse to fellow paedophiles.

Paediatric consultant Dr Jonathan Walsh, 47, claimed he looked at the vile material because he was BORED with his job, a court heard.

Married Dr Walsh was a respected consultant paediatrician in the children’s and adolescent services department of the Northern Devon Healthcare Trust.

But his veil of respectability was shattered after being arrested in September 2015 when his sick secret was exposed.

After a raid on his home, police discovered that he had been viewing and downloading many hours of footage of the most serious kind.

And he told his solicitor he carried out the offending as he was “tired” of working at the hospital and wanted to leave medicine.

He was suspended and then sacked after admitting 17 charges including nine counts of distributing indecent images of children and six counts of making them.

None of his crimes related to patients at the North Devon District Hospital in Barnstaple – but Exeter Crown Court heard the vast majority related to ‘Category A’ images which were the most serious and some videos were several hours long.

Walsh, formerly of Barnstaple but now living in Lytham St Annes, Lancs, was jailed today for a total of three years and told his career and reputation were in tatters.

Judge Geoffrey Mercer told him: “Over a period of at least some months, the precise period is unclear, you were involved in downloading and distributing extreme movies and images portraying sexual abuse of children and you went to considerable lengths to try and conceal what it was you were doing,

“You are 47 years old and a man of good character and I have read a number of references provided by people on your behalf who speak very highly of you.

“You have practicised as a paediatrician for a number of years. To state that your sexual interest in children, which outlines these offences, causes real concern in relation to someone in your position is a massive understatement.

“But it needs to be clearly understood that there was no offending in the context of your work and these offences were non contact offences.”

“Your career is now, of course, at an end. To quote from you from one of your letters you have written to me ‘through my actions I have lost my job, my career and my reputation and caused great harm to the ones I love.”

Walsh was sentenced to three years for each of the distributing offences and 12 months for downloading offences. All sentences will run concurrently.

The court heard how he was arrested on 3 September 2015 when officers from the child exploitation unit carried a search out at his home address.

He was arrested and his computer and a memory stick were seized.

No indecent images were found but there was significant evidence that he had been accessing child abuse material as well as file wiping software.

Prosecuting, James Davies said: “A leading forensic expert was called and advised the router to be seized. He found clear evidence of him downloading indecent images of children and distributing them.

“The defendant went to considerable lengths to conceal his online activity. It was over a period of four months that can be identified but not any further than that.

“There were 27 movies that could be retrieved, 26 were catergory A and one category B. 24 had been distributed with a total of 18 hours playing time.”

Defending, Lee Gledhall said his client was full of “severe regret” for what he had done.

He added: “He is a man of previous good character who practised medicine for some considerable years and had a positive impact on the community he lived in.

“This was his time off. It was during these periods he committed these offences.

“He is aware that these are real children in the videos and harm he indirectly caused by the re-distribution of these images.

“He explains he was tired of his job and wanted to get out of medicine after many years of training and working.

“He was a consultant paediatrician. He was instantly sacked at the point of charge and suspended by the GMC.

“It has had a significant impact on his financial situation. He has had to sell the family home and they have moved a considerable distance over the publicity and fall-out.

“He and his wife are still together but he had to explain this to his own children.”

The fall-out of Walsh’s crimes hit the community so hard that a special hotline was set up by the NHS for anyone worried they might have been affected.

Speaking after the case, Detective Inspector Andrea Kingdon said: “We are pleased with today’s sentencing and would like to thank the investigating team and partners for working with such tenacity to bring the offender to justice.

“Walsh was a practising and respected paediatrician in North Devon when he was committing these crimes; he let himself and his profession down by his activities which he went to great lengths to hide.

“The nature of the offending on the images and videos distributed by Dr Walsh are at the most serious end of the scale, and in some of these included movies some hours in length; this is an incredibly upsetting and challenging task for my team to work through.”
George Thomson, medical director for Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust, said: “This case has deeply shaken everybody at NDHT and we know it has been a shock to the community.

“We have worked closely with the police throughout this case and we know that none of these crimes relate to contact offences, and none of the images relate to patients at North Devon District Hospital.

“At the launch of the police investigation in September 2015 we took immediate action to exclude Dr Walsh from working at the Trust and informed the General Medical Council. Dr Walsh was dismissed with immediate effect when he was charged in June.”

Dr Jonathan Walsh / safeguarding role at hospital – part of paedophile ring

A consultant paediatrician’s career is in tatters after he admitted sharing vile child rape movies with fellow paedophiles all around the world.

Dr Jonathan Walsh was treating young children at North Devon District Hospital by day but then going home and looking at movies which showed the most extreme abuse.

He was also sharing the material with fellow paedophiles using peer to peer software which enabled complete strangers to look at the movies.

Walsh was a senior consultant paediatrician at the hospital in Barnstaple until he was dismissed after being charged by police in September 2015. His duties including responsibility for the safeguarding of children.

He will now face a disciplinary hearing at the General Medical Council where he is likely to be struck off.

He spent 17 months denying his involvement but changed his pleas when he appeared at Exeter Crown Court. Sentencing guidelines for distribution of images suggest he is facing a jail term.

Walsh, 47, formerly of Wordsworth Avenue, Barnstaple, but now living at Lytham St Annes, Cheshire, admitted ten counts of distributing and seven of making indecent images or movies of children.

He submitted a basis of plea which stated he had not intended to distribute the movies and was not aware they were available to other users of the file sharing site.

The prosecution rejected his basis of plea and Judge Brian Forster, QC ordered a special fact finding hearing at which a judge sitting without a jury will decide the issue.

The judge ordered him to sign on the sex offenders’ register. He also ordered a probation pre-sentence report.

The fact finding hearing will be heard by Judge Geoffrey Mercer, QC, at Exeter Crown Court next month, on the day originally set down for trial.

Walsh was arrested after intelligence led police to trace his IP address. No movies were found on his computer but an investigation uncovered evidence of around 300 items which had been deleted.

The high tech crime unit called in a professor who specialised in data recovery who helped them identify 35 files through what are known as hash values.

Officers were able to match the hash values with child abuse movies circulating on the internet. They found that all but one of the 35 came into category A, meaning they showed the most serious types of abuse.

The movies were of boys and girls aged from under two to eight and some showed the victims being forced to take part in penetrative sex with adults.

Many of the movies were distributed on the peer-to-peer file sharing website e-mule between January 1, 2014, and August 27, 2015.

Although the charges refer to Walsh making photographs, this is a technical legal term which means downloading rather than creating images.

Mr Jim Davis, prosecuting, said Walsh’s basis of plea is not accepted.

He said: “We propose to call the officer from the high tech crime unit and the officer in the case.

“There has been a meeting of the experts in this case which has led to a joint document being produced. There does not appear to be any divergence about the expert evidence.”

Mr David Welsh, defending, said Walsh intends to give evidence at the fact finding hearing next month. He said: “There is a counter argument to be made.”

Judge Forster said: “Speaking in neutral terms, the defendant needs to consider carefully his position. There is a benefit in maintaining a guilty plea.

“There is expert evidence available which the prosecution may say shows he had good computer knowledge.”

He told Walsh: “I am adjourning this hearing. There is a date for the trial when the basis of plea will be determined and the Judge will listen to the evidence brought by the prosecution and the evidence which you will give.

“You have now pleaded guilty and are required to register with the police as a sex offender. I am unable to give any indication of what the sentence will be as I will not be the Judge on the next occasion.”

A North Devon children’s doctor has today pleaded guilty to a number of child porn offences.

Paediatrician Dr Jonathan Walsh, 47, of Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, and formerly of Wordsworth Avenue, Barnstaple will be sentenced following a hearing which is due to be held on March 20.

In October last year the Journal reported that Walsh had denied the charges put to him.

However, this morning Walsh  pleaded guilty to 17 charges which included 9 counts of distributing indecent images of children and 6 counts of making indecent images of children. The vast majority of the charges related to ‘Category A’ images which are the most serious in their nature.

Police have worked closely with the Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust throughout this case and can confirm that none of these crimes relate to contact offences, and none of these images relate to patients at the North Devon District Hospital.

Detective Inspector Andrea Kingdon from the Force Child Exploitation Unit, said: “Jonathan Walsh was working in a position of responsibility where he had a duty to protect children and young people, yet he choose to commit crimes with the possession and sharing of indecent images of children which leads to the abuse of some of the most vulnerable in our society.

“Walsh was a practicing and respected paediatrician in North Devon when he was committing these crimes; he let himself and his profession down by his activities which he went to great lengths to hide.

“The victims of these types of offences often do not have a voice as their images are shared by paedophilic networks many times over, in a manner which constantly re-victimises them.

“We are determined to eradicate these types of despicable crimes and to stop paedophile offenders from being gratified by such activity, and in doing so protect the vulnerable.

“It is a testament to the commitment and ingenuity of those investigating this case that his level of offending was uncovered which led to his successful prosecution today.

“I wish to thank those staff an officers in the Public Protection Unit who have the unenviable job of viewing and processing this evidence to allow us to bring Dr Walsh to court to face justice.

“The nature of the offending on the images and videos viewed and distributed by Dr Walsh are at the most serious end of the scale, and some of these included movies some hours in length; this is an incredibly upsetting and challenging task for my team to work through.

“This case has demonstrated how effectively all agencies and professionals can work together to identify those perpetrating these types of crimes no matter what their standing in the community.

“Whilst these may not have been contact offences, the viewing and sharing of these types of images directly leads to the abuse of the most vulnerable in our society – Dr Walsh is as responsible as those who film and take part in this horrific abuse of children.

“I hope that this case sends out a strong message to those using the internet for deviant purposes that we have the capability to use advanced technology and expert help to uncover the truth and bring offenders to justice.”

George Thomson, medical director for the Northern Devon Healthcare Trust, said: “This case has deeply shaken everybody at NDHT and we know it has been a shock to the community.

“We have worked closely with the police throughout this case and we know that none of these crimes relate to contact offences, and none of the images relate to patients at North Devon District Hospital.

“At the launch of the police investigation in September 2015 we took immediate action to exclude Dr Walsh from working at the Trust and informed the General Medical Council. Dr Walsh was dismissed with immediate effect when he was charged in June.

“Anybody with any concerns can call 0300 123 1744 to find out how to access support.”

An NSPCC spokesperson for South West England said: “The children in these pictures and videos, some of which fell into the most serious category of offending, are the victims of child abuse and the horrific experiences they endured for the images to be created should not be underestimated.

“Although it has been acknowledged that none of the images related to patients at this hospital, Walsh was working in a position of significant responsibility when he chose to commit these crimes, with no regard for the effects on vulnerable young children.

“Every image is a crime scene and every child will need support to recover. Working with internet providers, it’s vital that more is done to stop this vile trade in indecent images and to cut this material off at the source.

A dark side never revealed before.’ The headline above the opening double-page instalment read ‘MY VIOLENT WORLD, BY JIM THE GODFATHER’.
And underneath: ‘How I fixed it the night lid on what the paper described as the ‘ruthless, calculating Jimmy Savile. A man who engineered his own rise to the top with cold precision. A man who is not scared of violence.’
It was a side to Savile that was totally at odds with the man that kids clamoured to be with, parents admired and the most powerful in society were happy to be associated with.

Soon after the revelations in the Sun, Prime Minister Thatcher went in to bat for Jimmy Savile for a third time. However, in a climate in which the threat of AIDS was causing widespread consternation, the claims about his promiscuous sex life, allied with the thuggish aspects of his dancehall career, meant it was again decided that it would be wise to consider him for a future list.

There were no such reservations within the royal family, though. In late July, the 120-bed National Spinal Injuries Centre welcomed its first new patient. A few days later, on 3 August, Jimmy Savile stood on the front steps with Prince Charles and Princess Diana alongside for the official opening.

His stock was similarly high with the Catholic Church; in December, Cardinal Basil Hume, Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster, proposed Jimmy Savile for membership at the prestigious Athenaeum Club.

Roberts was jailed at Winchester Crown Court for rapes committed while he worked for an agency providing on-call forensic medical examiners for Hampshire Police.

He had previously had sexual assault charges brought against him but they had not shown up on police checks because he had been cleared when the trial collapsed.

Wells was arrested after he drugged two sisters, aged five and 11, and their mother became suspicious and reported him to police.

The eldest girl had large amounts of benzodiazepine in her body and the younger girl tested positive for temazepam.

Police found both drugs present in his biscuit tin when they raided his home. They also found a timetable for drugging, filming and abusing the children. 

Officers then spoke to other families he had befriended, which was when another 11-year-old girl reported yet more shocking abuse.

She told police that he strapped her to a polystyrene block he called Satan’s pillow as he removed her Harry Potter pajamas then sexually assaulted her.

Police found shocking pornography on his computers, along with the video camera and polystyrene block in his mobile phone.

Police, who were struggling to access certain information on his computer, said they feared there may be more victims and urged them to come forward. 

The victims in the most recent case came forward after hearing of his 2004 conviction, and relate to his time as a GP in the 1980s, before the other assaults. 

The court heard how the charges related to three girls who were Wells’ patients, one of whom was driven to the brink of suicide by the emotional impact of the assault.

In a statement read out in court, one victim said: ‘He has destroyed my life.’

During the case in 2004, the court heard how Wells filmed himself sexually assaulting one of the girls in his mobile home (pictured)

She said Wells had been regarded as an ‘upstanding pillar of the community’.

Wells was a registered medical practitioner at the time, but has since been struck off by the General Medical Council.

One of the girl’s mothers had made a complaint to Caerleon Surgery at the time, but it was ‘arrogantly dismissed’, and she was ‘told not to be so silly’, Mr Roberts told the court.

He added: ‘He left South Wales in the late 1980s and went on to commit a series of depraved offences.

Wells was jailed for seven years and an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order was imposed.

Detective Constable Chris Jayne, from Gwent Police, said: ‘I would like to take the opportunity to recognise the bravery of the victims and their families in this case.

‘Wells is a danger to children and the detrimental impact that he has brought to the lives of the victims from a young age through to adulthood has been incredibly significant.


Sordid picture of rapist doctor

9 Jun 2004

A GWENT doctor was jailed for 15 years yesterday for drugging, raping and indecently assaulting young girls.

And a retired Newport doctor, who worked alongside pervert police surgeon Dr Robert Wells said he is “deeply shocked” at his former colleague’s actions.

Dr Russell Rhys, 79, worked alongside Wells at the Isca Medical Centre in High Street, Caerleon, in the 1980s.

He said: “The man I knew was regarded as a good doctor in the area. “I worked with him for a few years but two years after I retired he became bankrupt.

“Like everyone I was deeply shocked.” After his conviction at Winchester crown court a sordid picture emerged of Wells who befriended the parents of his victims before attacking them.

The court heard Wells, whose full address in Cwmbran has never been revealed, persuaded the parents to allow him to look after the children. Once he had them alone, he drugged the children using benzodiazepine and Temazepam – drugs which would have knocked the girls out and caused amnesia.

He then filmed the girls while he either raped or assaulted them. All the attacks took place early in 2003. Wells moved to the south coast after resigning from the Caerleon surgery in 1989 when he was made bankrupt. A high-profile bankruptcy hearing in Newport saw Wells, who at the time was living in Jerusalem Lane, Pontypool, earn the nickname of the “Romeo doctor”. It emerged the 52-year-old had run up more than £1.5 million in debts on a string of girlfriends, fast cars and holidays abroad.

Wells claimed that he had girlfriends queuing up for him and showered them with gifts, including £800 dresses and watches from Harrods.

After rebuilding his life on the south coast, Wells worked as a forensic medical examiner, or police surgeon, in Southampton and Winchester areas of Hampshire. He also had a private practice in Brighton.

At a flat in Southampton where most of the attacks occurred police found a contraption of covered polystyrene on a wooden board with red straps which one of his victims said was called Satan’s Pillow.

Police raids also found evidence of child pornography and of him accessing paedophile newsgroups.

During his four-week trial Wells, who pleaded not guilty to all charges, said he put himself in a position to be accused of the offences because he wanted a reason to be able to commit suicide.

He was convicted of two charges of rape of an 11-year-old girl and three charges of indecent assault against the same girl.

He was convicted of taking an indecent photograph of a child as well as administering drugs to a second 11-year-old and a girl aged five and indecently assaulting the 11-year-old.

He was cleared of one rape charge involving the first 11-year-old and also of a charge of indecent assault of the five-year-old.

After his conviction Judge Keith Cutler said Wells was a “dangerous sex offender” who breached the trust of his profession, sending a “shiver down the spine.”

The trial heard that Wells, formerly of Hangleton Road, Hove, and Priory Avenue, Southampton, worked as what is commonly known as a police surgeon in the Southampton and Winchester areas of Hampshire and also had a private practice in Brighton.

What the jury at Winchester were not told was that Wells had been charged with abusing girls before.

He was acquitted of attacking an eight-year-old and a girl of 15 in separate trials at Lewes Crown Court in 1995.

In a case which has parallels with that of Soham child killer Ian Huntley, a loophole in vetting procedures allowed Wells to work as a police surgeon despite the charges.

He sought work from a company called Primecare in October 2001. They sub-contracted the doctor to Hampshire Police to work as a Forensic Medical Examiner despite him being known to the neighbouring Sussex force.

This was because the guidelines in force from 1993 to 2002 only required police to check locally and not, as is the case now, the areas a person has lived in for the last five years.

The vetting procedures have been improved since the Criminal Records Bureau was set up in 2002, according to a the Home Office.

The jury was also not made aware of Well’s notorious past as a bankrupt described in the Press as a `Romeo Doc’, who had debts of #1.5 million accumulated through failed businesses and indulgent spending on women.

Both drugs would have knocked the girls out and caused them to suffer amnesia.

Mr Parish said the levels in the older girl could have been potentially fatal and Wells had got it wrong and overdosed the girl.

At the Southampton address police found a piece of paper which the prosecution alleged was a timetable for the drugging of the two sisters and the abuse of the elder one.

It gave times for picking them up from the train station and going to the zoo.

Other notes gave times and the words Angel Delight and Viagra plus indications that what happened had been filmed.

Checks on a seized computer revealed that a film had been created and deleted in the early hours of February 26 and deleted files with the name of the 11-year-old girl on them were also discovered.

Detectives then spoke to another 11-year-old daughter of a family friend from Brighton and she alleged that Wells had attacked her repeatedly during most of 2002 and early 2003 when he was alone with her.

A spokeswoman for Primecare said that Wells had worked for the medical staffing agency since 1979 but added that it had completed all the checks required under the government guidelines in place at that time.

20 former pupils at Ashdown House prep school in Sussex – where London mayor Boris Johnson was a boarder – have recently come forward with complaints about extreme cruelty and sex offences committed on them as young boys. A number of teachers are being investigated.
Maurice Victor Clive Williams, 71, retired, of High St, Barcombe, East Sussex, has been charged with four offences, two of indecent assault and two of gross indecency, all with a girl under 16. Another man, Martin Haigh, 66, unemployed, of Lavender St, Brighton, has also been charged with eleven offences, five of indecent assault and six of gross indecency. Four of the indecent assault charges against Haigh involve one boy and the fifth charge involves another boy. Two of the gross indecency charges involve the boy subject of the four indecent assault charges, two involve a second boy, one involves another third boy and one involves a fourth boy. All the boys were aged under 16 at the time of the alleged offences. The offences are alleged to have occurred while both men were employed as teachers at Ashdown House School near Forest Row. None of the offences are alleged to have been committed jointly. The charges, authorised by the CPS, follow an investigation by East Sussex child safeguarding detectives.

A third man, now aged 68, arrested in Tadley, Hants, in January 2015 on suspicion of gross indecency, has been stood down from his police bail while the CPS consider the evidence in relation to him.


Former headmaster of prep school attended by Boris Johnson and Damian Lewis is arrested on suspicion of child sex offences

  • Clive Williams, 69, is understood to have been arrested on Wednesday
  • He took the helm at Ashdown House in 1975 and remained until 2003
  • £24,000-a-year school in East Sussex dogged by claims of historic abuse
  • Mr Williams was released on bail after interview while investigations continue
  • Johnson family left ‘sad’ and grateful for Mr Williams’ ‘fantastic teaching’

The former headmaster of the £24,000-a-year prep school attended by Boris Johnson has been arrested on suspicion of child sex offences.

Clive Williams led Ashdown House school in East Sussex, whose former pupils also include the Homeland actor Damian Lewis, the Queen’s nephew Viscount Linley and former Tory chief whip Andrew Mitchell, for almost 30 years.

He is understood to be the 69-year-old man who Sussex Police say they arrested and interviewed on Wednesday over alleged sexual assaults and child neglect.

Mr Williams was released on bail while investigations continue and is not charged with any offence.

New boy: Viscount Linley, then aged 7, is left in the care of ‘Billy’ Williamson in 1969.

The headmaster, who had been so charming to Princess Margaret, turned out to be a sadist, addicted to spanking the bare bottoms of his charges. 

There was talk of blackmail and predatory older pupils encouraged by abusive teachers. That chimed with my adult perception of the bizarre sexualisation of life at Ashdown, especially the system of reward and discipline. At least two children I knew who had been given authority over younger kids used it to force sexual contact – Williamson seemed to have turned a blind eye. There was talk of connections with house masters at Eton, to which Ashdown fed pupils. There had been at least one suicide. There were more teachers in the complaint.

By chance, Clive Williams, headmaster of Ashdown House, the Sussex prep-school which Boris and three of his siblings (Rachel, Leo and Jo) attended, telephoned me as I sat down to write this article to congratulate me on becoming First Father.

‘What about this charge, Clive,’ I asked, ‘that Boris doesn’t pay attention to detail?’

 Martin Haigh – Ashdown teacher

Ex-teacher sentenced for sex offences at East Sussex boarding school in 1970s

24 Mar, 2017

Martin Haigh

A Brighton man has been given 12- year prison sentence for sexual offences against four pupils at an East Sussex boarding school, at Ashdown House School, where he was a teacher in the 1970s, and possession of indecent images of children.


Martin Haigh (pictured), 67, unemployed, of Lavender St, Brighton, was sentenced at Brighton Crown Court on Friday (24 March) after a four day trial on charges of offences against two of the boys, which had ended in his being convicted on the previous day.He was convicted of  four offences, one of indecent assault and three of gross indecency, against the two boys who were then pupils aged between seven and 12, at Ashdown House School, an independent preparatory boarding school near Forest Row, between 1973 and 1975 while he was a teacher there.At a previous hearing before the trial Haigh had also admitted seven other offences, three of gross indecency and four of indecent assault, against two other boys at the school during the same period.He also admitted an offence of possessing indecent images of children, found on a computer at his address when officers searched it in 2015. The images were taken from the Internet and there is no evidence that they were children known to him.Haigh was sentenced to a total of 11 years for the sexual offences and an additional one year for the possession of indecent images.He will be a registered sex offender for life and has been served with a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) severely restricting his access to children and computers.The prosecution, authorised by the CPS, followed an investigation by East Sussex child safeguarding detectives after allegations were referred to them for the first time in January 2014.Police emphasise that there are no current or recent safeguarding issues at the school in relation to this case.Detective Constable Paul Deadman said; “This was a complex and protracted investigation, during which it became clear that Haigh had systematically taken advantage of the trust of young and vulnerable boys to abuse them for his own sexual gratification.

Boris Johnson

Jo Johnson

He is understood to be the 69-year-old man who Sussex Police say they arrested and interviewed on Wednesday over alleged sexual assaults and child neglect.

Mr Williams was released on bail while investigations continue and is not charged with any offence.

A spokesman for the family told The Times: ‘We are all sad to hear this news. We were all four happy at Ashdown and will always be especially grateful to Clive Williams for his fantastic teaching.’

There is no suggestion that the Johnsons, Mr Lewis, Mr Mitchell or Viscount Linley were among the alleged victims.

Mr Williams took the helm of the school near Tunbridge Wells, Kent, with his wife Rowena in 1975 and remained until 2003, a time in which the school admitted girls for the first time.

Since he left, however, the 170-year-old school has become the centre of allegations of historic sexual abuse.

In December it emerged two former pupils were suing the school over abuse they claimed happened in the 1970s and involved ‘more than one teacher’.

An email seen by the Daily Mail said: ‘The effects of this abuse has damaged a number of pupils long into adulthood and it is felt among us that, as part of the healing process, it is important for us to take our power back and take action against such damaging and horrendous actions.’

Multiple complaints have been forwarded to officers from Sussex Police’s Operation Mitre who have been in touch with more than 20 alleged victims, including some who live abroad.

The Sussex Police spokesman added: ‘During January this year we were contacted by a firm of Solicitors representing a number of clients who have reported to them that they were sexually and physically assaulted by staff whilst they were pupils at Ashdown House School near Forest Row in the 1970’s.
The investigation continues and now spans a period from the late 1960s to the early 1980s.

Damian Lewis: Boarding school is a ‘very violent’ experience that ‘defines you emotionally for life’

Damian Lewis, the Old Etonian actor, has told how he found being sent to boarding school a “very violent experience“.

The star said children who are sent away from home to be educated are left with an experience that “defines you emotionally for the rest of your life”.

The son of a City broker, he was born in the wealthy London suburb of St John’s Wood and was sent to boarding school Eton, whose former pupils include David Cameron and Boris Johnson.

Lewis, who has two children with fellow actor Helen McCrory, said he would not send his own children to boarding school at such a young age.

Recalling his own experience, he said: “I went at eight and I think that’s very hard. You go through something which, at that age, defines you and your ability to cope.

There’s a sudden lack of intimacy with a parent, and your ability to get through that defines you emotionally for the rest of your life. It’s a very violent experience in those first few weeks. It’s just, boom.”

[Wikipedia has Damien Lewis (b.1971) as attending Ashdown House prep school.]

Daily Telegraph

 We were all four happy at Ashdown and will always be especially grateful to Clive Williams for his fantastic teaching.’
The story begins in 1974. Boris, Leo and I (Jo, my littlest brother, was in crèche) are at the European School in Brussels. The Belgian capital in the Seventies was all wild dinner parties, consciousness-raising groups and open marriages. My mother was often in hospital, and my father was often away, and when they were “at home”, my glamorous parents tended to be out.

Ex-Ashdown House School – the centre of allegations of historic sexual abuse – head Clive Williams cleared of child sex charges

14 March 2017

Maurice Williams was headmaster of Ashdown House for 25 years before he left in 2003

A former head teacher has been found not guilty of historical sex offences against a pupil at his school.

Maurice Williams, 72, of High Street, Barcombe, East Sussex, was acquitted of two charges of indecent assault and two of gross indecency.

They were alleged to have involved a girl under 16 between 1989 and 1993 at Ashdown House School, near Forest Row.

Ashdown House is a co-educational, preparatory boarding school for children aged between seven and 13.

Another former teacher at the school, charged at the same time as Mr Williams, is due to face a trial on 20 March at Lewes Crown Court.

Martin Haigh, 67, of Lavender Street, Brighton, is accused of five counts of indecent assault and six of gross indecency, all between 1972 and 1978.

Righton – the subject of a 1994 documentary on paedophiles

After he had been found guilty of abuse as early as 1972, Napier was placed on List 99 with the Department of Education and so should not have been allowed to teach again
However Peter Righton, an equally devious and prolific abuser, intervened
As Director of Education at the National Institute for Social Work, Righton had become a prestigious social work professional.

Charles Napier was able ( by his own admission in a number of letters to Righton over many years ) to abuse countless number of boys in Sweden and Egypt over many years in the late 70’s through the 80’s until 1992 when the arrest of Righton and the discovery of these letters led to his ( Napier’s) immediate dismissal

Napier and Righton ” shared ” a large number of victims, and offences, including rape, during the 80’s but never faced charges on any of the most serious cases of abuse

Many questions remain unanswered including who were Napier’s referees for his employment with the British Council

Why was Righton allowed to reach the very top of the social work profession ( with posts at NISW and the National Children’s Bureau as stepping stones to positions as a Home Office/ Government “expert” on major reports ) despite being caught red handed abusing boys on a large scale in the 1950’s and writing quite openly in NISW and NCB journals, articles etc from 1971 onwards about his views that adult and child sexual relationships we re not necessarily harmful.

As a true test of his new found “remorse ” (Napier can now share with the Police all the names of the ” rich and famous ” who attended the parties his victims referred to

As Treasurer of the Paedophile Information Exchange in its peak period of membership in the mid 70’s Napier holds the key to the identity of hundreds of dangerous abusers who continued to abuse thousands of children over many decades

Child Porn Raids on Public Schools; Four Teachers Quit

Daily Mail September 20, 1996

AT LEAST three public schools have been raided by Scotland Yard detectives investigating claims of a paedophile ring, it emerged yesterday.

Videos, computer disks and books were seized from a master at Harrow School. And four teachers at two other schools have left their jobs.

Harrow head Nicholas Bomford defended his teacher last night, saying no charges were brought against the man, who was still in his post.

Police Investigate Public School Paedophile Ring’
The Times, 25 August 1996.

SCOTLAND YARD detectives are investigating allegations of a paedophile network involving teachers from some of Britain’s top public schools, writes Stephen Grey.

The paedophile and child pornography unit is inquiring into a ring of private school staff who allegedly exchange information, boast of abusing youngsters and travel abroad together on “sex tours”. At least six teachers have been questioned and their homes raided as inquiries continue into the ring that has links to some of the most notorious paedophiles in Britain.

The paedophile unit has been assisted by detectives from forces around the country as well as social workers.

The inquiry began after a former teacher at Abberley Hall preparatory school in Herefordshire allegedly confessed to a colleague to being part of a huge network of paedophiles.  Abberley Hall confirmed last week that both teachers were no longer on staff.

The former teacher claimed that he had had sex with “hundreds and hundreds” of boys and named teachers at six other leading establishments.

Trips for the teachers to indulge in child abuse with “rent boys” have allegedly been organised to countries including the Philippines, Czech Republic, Romania, Albania, Thailand and even Bosnia.
“These people decided a few years ago it was no longer safe to talk openly of abusing kids in this country, but decided they were perfectly safe abroad. At home they content themselves with sick pictures of child abuse,” said one source.
Although full details cannot be revealed for legal reasons, the investigation has involved a series of police raids, including one at the home of a head of department at a prominent London public school, where pornography was removed.

Another raid took place at Hurstpierpoint College in Sussex. Last week Stephen Meek, headmaster confirmed that two staff had been dismissed after a police caution for the possession of indecent material. “It was nothing to do with pupils at the school,” he said.
Other teachers also named include three masters at another leading public school, two masters at two famous preparatory schools in the home counties, and a choir school teacher.
The teachers were said to exchange paedophile videos. When they feared police raids, they allegedly worked together to conceal material.
“Many of these teachers will be secure in the knowledge that they will never be prosecuted,” said one police source.

Also named as allegedly linked to the network are Peter Righton, the former childcare expert exposed as a paedophile, and Charles Napier, a former treasurer of the Paedophile Information Exchange and a former staff member of the British Council in Cairo who was jailed last year for sex assaults on youngsters in London.

Christopher Potter was born in Worcester 61 years ago. He studied classic Greek and Latin at Cambridge University – subjects he still teaches. His first experience in education came at a boarding school in Ardingly, Sussex, before he came to Old Swinford in 1978.

Twenty three years on, the father-of-five is retiring, earning him the honour of being one of the longest serving headmasters in the history of the school.

‘Over the past years we’ve built up a big entry to both Cambridge and Oxford, and we’re recognized on a national level for our academic achievements, but this boy was the first from this school to get into Cambridge for 320 years, and that was a big day for both me and the school’ he says.

Apart from the academic results, Old Swinford has also educated some familiar faces. Nick Baley, the new doctor Anthony Trueman in EastEnders, and Ian Hislop from the TV-show Have I Got News For You are just some of the ex-pupils that have made it big.

Long history of issues at Ardingly cf.Jon Snow & ex-Broadmoor staff

News anchor Jon Snow has described how he was abducted and undressed by a member of school staff when he was six years old.

Snow went to Ardingly College in West Sussex, where his father was headmaster. He said in his autobiography that the school’s domestic quarters had a “prison-camp feel” as he described the incident in 1953.

Snow wrote in Shooting History that the man responsible was a member of domestic staff named “Jim”, who lived on the school grounds and had been released from a psychiatric hospital.

Ardingly College Lodge No 4410

This is the Masonic Lodge for Ardingly College. We are independent of the school, but strongly connected.

Ardingly College is an English public school at Ardingly, in Sussex.  It was founded in 1858 by Nathaniel Woodard.  Woodard established Ardingly as St Saviour’s College, after Lancing and Hurstpierpoint

In 1923 the then Headmaster of Ardingly College, together with other masters and the Provost of the school, the Bishop of Lewes, set up a new private lodge under the UGLE for Masons having a connexion with the school.  We are that Lodge.  We are open to Old Ardinians, school staff, parents of pupils and of OAs, and any other friend of Ardingly College

Support from the School staff continued for many years. GJ Ince, the School Chaplain, was appointed our Chaplain at the Consecration and served in that office until 1944

Ardingly College Lodge

The school has its own Masonic Lodge, Ardingly College Lodge, which is a member of the elite Freemason “Public School Lodges” Council.[19] The Lodge, which is open to male Old Ardinians as well as those with an affiliation to the college, was founded in 1922 by the then headmaster, Thomas Erskine Wilson, together with masters, the Provost of the school and the Bishop of Lewes.[20]

In 1958 the school celebrated its centenary . On 9 June 1958, as part of the celebrations, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited Ardingly. A stone plaque on the terrace parapet commemorates the visit, where she “beheld the view”. Later that week, on 14 June 1958, the then Prime Minister , Harold MacMillan , visited the school to open the Centenary Building, which comprises the college cricket pavilion and upstairs Centenary Room. On 8 May 2008, the Duke of Kent visited Ardingly as part of its sesquicentenary celebrations and officially opened a new teaching block at the pre-preparatory school.

Robert Alston was governor of Pitcairn Island where sexual abuse was rampant.

Legacy of Sexual Mayhem, the Dark Secrets of Pitcairn Island

For Britain, the case raised embarrassing questions about its supervision of the colony, now known as an overseas territory.  Judges and lawyers were appointed, and in 2003, after a series of legal and logistical hurdles had been surmounted, 13 men were charged with 96 offences dating back to the 1960s.

In 2004, I spent six weeks on the island, reporting on one of the most bizarre court cases imaginable.

Why was it that many outsiders persisted in defending men who were guilty of a crime that was normally reviled — pedophilia? Why did they continue to mythologize Pitcairn, although it had failed, in such a dramatic way, to live up to its utopian image?

Official inquiries into prolonged failure to prevent child abuse in the Diocese of Chichester which includes Lewes brought up allegations against Bishop Peter Ball

Butler-Sloss Church of England hand picked.

She wanted to exclude some of the survivor’s allegations against Bishop Peter Ball, in a bid to protect the Church of England.

He says she told him she “cared very much about the Church”.

Mr Johnson, who suffered assaults by a number of clergymen when he was a choirboy in the Church of England Diocese in Chichester, said he felt during her review of Church abuse, Baroness Butler-Sloss had been “showing bias and wasn’t being impartial”.

The Rt Rev Peter Ball, who was bishop of Gloucester and bishop of Lewes in East Sussex, was charged with two counts of indecent assault and one of misconduct in a public office, following her investigation into abuse in the diocese of Chichester during the 1970s and 1980s.

Baroness Butler-Sloss was behind controversial paedophile ruling

link

Lady Butler-Sloss acted as character witness for man convicted of attacking 13-year-old girl and defends child rapist Chard in court

He was found guilty of one count of rape and of sexual activity with a child

She had known Chard for 20 years because his mother Valerie was her cleaner at her home in East Devon.

link

Butler-Sloss gave character evidence supportive of Chard at another trial eight years ago when he was accused of assaulting a man while working as a nightclub bouncer. Chard was also convicted for that offence, but on that occasion escaped being sent to prison.

Chard’s victim from the 2007 case and his family have expressed anger that Butler-Sloss, who last year stepped down as chair of the independent historical child abuse inquiry, was again prepared to apparently back him in court.

Child sexual abuse

The school has been at the centre of three major child safeguarding problems, including a child sexual abuse scandal:[11]

  • In February 2009, teaching assistant Robert Healy was jailed for seven years after he admitted grooming two girls using the social networking site Bebo, then having sex with them.[12]
  • Canon Gordon Rideout was allowed to remain chair of the school governors for more than a year despite having being suspended by the Church of England following a Criminal Records Bureau check and despite the school being aware.[13] Rideout was jailed for 10 years in May 2013 for abusing 36 vulnerable girls and boys at a now closed Barnardo’s home in Crawley, West Sussex, over a four-year period between the 1960s and 1970s.[14]
  • In September 2012, maths teacher Jeremy Forrest was arrested in Bordeaux, and subsequently charged by Sussex Police with the abduction of a 15-year-old female pupil.[15] He was found guilty in June 2013, and after pleading guilty to five further charges of sexual activity with a child, was jailed for 5½ years.[16][17] The judge said that Forrest had been repeatedly warned by colleagues but had lied to them and had been motivated by self-interest.[18] Although a review published in April 2013 did not find evidence of “any significant or systemic failings in safeguarding” following the Forrest verdict,[11] there were calls for headteacher Terry Boatwright to be sacked.[19]

Rev Jonathan Graves appeared at a Plea and Case Management Hearing at Lewes
Crown Court on Thursday 5th May. He is charged with 11 counts of abuse, these include:

– Indecent assault against a male,
– Gross indecency against a male,
– Assault / neglect / ill treatment / abandonment of a child,
– Indecent assault against an adult female.

He pleaded not guilty to all charges and a trial date has been set for 5th December 2016.

Fr. Jonathan was the vicar of St. Luke’s Church, Stone Cross in the Diocese of
Chichester
from 1995 – 2002, where most of the alleged offences took place.
He later had his Permission to Officiate as a Church of England priest withdrawn.

Despite this Fr. Jonathan continues to officiate and play the organ at funerals,
particularly at Hastings Crematorium – he conducted 137 funerals in a four year
period AFTER being banned
by the Church of England.

You do not have to be licences to conduct a funeral and Fr. Jonathan is a ‘retired priest’
conducting ‘humanist’ funerals… apparently,
even though they have prayers and hymns?!?

– This is completely legal.

We are not trying to pre-judge the outcome of the trial and recognise that everyone is
innocent until proven guilty but….

Is it right for a man facing such serious charges to be visiting families in their
homes at a time when they are vulnerable due to their recent bereavement with,
it would appear, no real safeguards being put in place?

A former Church of England priest has been charged with abusing a boy more than 25 years ago.

Canon Gordon Rideout, 73, is suspected of sexually assaulting nine young people between 1965 and 1972.

Former parish priest Robert Coles, 70, is suspected of sexually assaulting three young men in West Sussex in the late 1970s and mid-1980s.

One of the allegations against Robert Coles was investigated in 1997, and an arrest was made, but there was insufficient evidence to justify criminal proceedings at that time.

The other allegations have only recently emerged as a result of the current inquiry.

The correspondence has emerged in a report into the Church’s failure to support victims of Roy Cotton that was published online and then removed.

A spokeswoman for the Diocese of Chichester told the BBC the Meekings Report was removed because the document had accidentally included some confidential information.

Peter Ball suspected of committing offences during late 1980s but allegations against other priests date back further still

The arrest of Bishop Peter Ball on suspicion of sexual offences against boys and men at addresses in East Sussex and elsewhere is the latest development in a wide-ranging and often contentious series of official inquiries into decades of alleged child protection failures in the diocese of Chichester on England’s south coast.
………………………….

From the 1970s to the 1990s there were sporadic and low-profile investigations into allegations of sexual abuse against priests in the diocese, but none got as far as the courts. The breakthrough case was arguably the 2008 conviction of Rev Colin Pritchard, a vicar in Bexhill. Pritchard pleaded guilty at Northampton crown court to four counts of indecent assault on a child and three counts of gross indecency on a child. The offences are reported to have taken place between 1979 and 1983 and to have involved two victims, aged between 12 and 15. He was jailed for five years.

Another case involved Roy Cotton, who became a priest in the diocese of Chichester after having been convicted of a sexual offence against a child in 1953 for indecently exposing himself in the organ loft of a village church. Cotton died in 2006 and was never prosecuted.
After Cotton retired he was granted permission to officiate and Meekings reported that a member of St Saviour’s and St Peter’s church in Eastbourne told him that “Cotton attended that church and made a ‘nuisance’ of himself with the choirboys which led to a number of them leaving or wanting to leave the choir and the church”.

Colin Pritchard is accused of seven offences against a boy

A former Anglican priest has been charged with sex offences against a boy in the 1980s and 1990s.

Ifor Whittaker, 72, formerly known as Colin Pritchard, is charged with seven offences involving the boy, who was aged between 12 and 16 at the time.

He is accused of conspiring with ex-clergyman Roy Cotton, who has since died, to commit sex acts with the boy.

Mr Whittaker, of Rectory Road, Sutton, south London, is due to appear before magistrates on 24 May.

He is also accused of gross indecency and inciting the boy to commit gross indecency.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between February 1987 and February 1993 against the boy in East Sussex.

Mr Whittaker was vicar of Sedlescombe, near Battle, and it is claimed the offences took place there, Sussex Police said.

Peter Bick lived in Bexhill in East Sussex.

On 23 April 2012, a former altar boy, Christopher Hunnisett, 28, appeared in court accused of murdering Peter Bick, 57, as part of a campaign of hate against paedophiles.

Bick is believed to have been a friend of Prince Philip.

Police found Peter Bick, 57, dead in his flat on January 11 2011.

It emerged this week that Mr Bick – who most recently worked as a meet-and-greet-man at Asda in Silverhill – spent time in prison after he admitted conning a 95-year-old Thakeham woman out of £70,000. The pensioner had given Mr Bick power of attorney but police found he had siphoned off funds to bankroll an upmarket lifestyle and clear his credit card debts. When he was interviewed he said he had paid himself an annual salary and had moved some money around to try and maximise the interest. He was planning to pay it all back, he added.

“Peter was a great animal lover, and especially loved horses and dogs. He was a member of a carriage driving club, a hobby he was passionate about, and he would attend many shows.”

After being freed from prison in September 2010, Hunnisett, of Hastings, East Sussex, made a “hit list” of men he planned to kill in his bid to rid the world of paedophiles.
Mr Bick, an Asda employee from Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex, was at the top of Hunnisett’s list of targets

link

He said he had contacted Mr Bick via a website and met him at his flat, where he claimed the older man had admitted committing sex acts with youths aged 14 and 16.

He then attempted to “honeytrap” him, claiming he could arrange a threesome with himself and a public schoolboy aged 15, whom he invented using the online alias “Golden Boy”, while the boy’s parents were away on holiday.

He claimed Mr Bick agreed but before it was due to happen he travelled to Bexhill, where he told him the boy was unable to join them.

Hunnisett said he then stripped naked and committed a sex act while Mr Bick watched, claiming it was part of his cover. Under the pretext of sex games he then tied the also naked Mr Bick to his bed with shoelaces tied around his neck, saying the older man had admitted it was something he had done with one of the young boys.

link

As the foreman of the jury returned a guilty verdict, Hunnisett, of Chanctonbury Drive, Hastings, leapt over the dock in an attempt to escape and shouted “Every word I said was true”.

He had to be restrained by eight people and could be heard sobbing as they tried to calm him down in the dock.

The seventh Earl of Lonsdale- James Lowther
Lord Hugh Lowther, the eighth Earl of Lonsdale also accused him of having sexually abused him when he was a child and claimed that a plan to disinherit him was hatched shortly after he reported his father to the police for his persistent sexual abuse throughout his childhood.

The 7th Earl married four times, had eight children and was a close friend of the Royal Family. He would often entertain the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh at the family seat of Lowther Castle.

Ian Jackson told Lina Barnes he would not support her if she reported that Gospel Hall Brethren preacher Allan Cundick assaulted her at the age of 12.

But Ms Barnes, 33, who sought advice from him last year, said he wanted to protect the Church.

Simon Bass, from the Churches’ Child Protection Advisory Service, said: “To use scripture as a means of saying we should keep this in house and we should not report this to the authorities again – it’s quite incredulous to even think that somebody would do that.

“It’s totally against what is good safeguarding practice.”

Geelong Grammar: Child Sexual Abuse Royal Commission report set to be tabled in parliament

February 13, 2017

SURVIVOR of abuse at Geelong Grammar School has slammed its trademark positive education program as “crap”, as the royal commission’s findings on the elite Corio school are set to be tabled in Parliament.

Libby O’Brien attended Geelong Grammar in the 1980s and said she hoped the commission’s report did not “get swept under the carpet”.

“There are so many more perpetrators out there,” she said, despite the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse having been in progress since 2013.

“The cover-ups were really frightening,” she said. “I just want to make sure (the royal commission finding) doesn’t go under the radar.”

Ms O’Brien said the decades-long fight for justice had been “an extremely painful process”. She and a group of survivors and friends covered Geelong Grammar’s gates with coloured ribbons in February of last year, transforming it into a “Loud Fence” symbolising those who were sexually abused and couldn’t be heard.

“I’m so sick of telling this story,” Ms O’Brien said. “I keep getting slapped in the face — it’s really, really hard.”

In a November, 2016, submission to the royal commission, counsel assisting David Lloyd said former Geelong Grammar principal John Lewis had failed to protect students under his care.

“Mr Lewis did not treat the issue of child sexual abuse seriously and preferred the reputation of the school to the interests and welfare of the students,” Mr Lloyd said.

A spokesman for Geelong Grammar said the school would be responding to the royal commission’s findings when they become available.

The school was at the heart of a debate in South Australian politics last weekend, when it emerged SA schools had forked out more than $620,000 for Geelong Grammar to teach educators from Adelaide’s northern suburbs how to “nurture and sustain positive relationships”. SA Opposition treasury spokesman Rob Lucas described the program as a “massive waste of taxpayers’ money”.

A spokesman for the SA Department for Communities and Social Inclusion said Geelong Grammar was “one of the world leaders in the adoption of positive education”.

Ms O’Brien said she was “pretty disgusted” that the school was profiting from a program espousing student wellbeing.

“It’s such crap,” she said.

She urged anyone with information on historical abuses to go to the authorities.

“Anyone who knew anything, just report it to police,” she said. “Every report counts.”

Commissioners are holding a public hearing on Catholic Church authorities until February 27. From March 6 they will hold hearings on Commonwealth and State governments, the Uniting Church, Anglican Church, Yeshivah Melbourne and Bondi, and Australian Christian churches and Pentecostal authorities.

Cranbrook headmaster Nicholas Sampson wrote ‘misleading’ letters after sexual abuse allegations raised

14 Feb 2017

Headmaster: response ‘just not good enough’

Former Geelong Grammar headmaster Nicholas Sampson faces questions about how the school dealt with allegations of sexual misconduct by former teacher Jonathon Harvey

The headmaster of one Sydney’s most expensive private schools, Cranbrook, wrote “misleading” letters about a teacher accused of child sexual abuse at his former school and failed to report the allegations to a higher authority, a royal commission has found.

Nicholas Sampson, then the headmaster of Victoria’s Geelong Grammar, paid teacher Jonathan Harvey to retire early in 2004 to avoid any formal complaints of child sex abuse being made against him.

Harvey was later found guilty of sexually abusing a 16-year-old boy known as BLF by repeatedly plying him with alcohol, fondling his genitals and forcing him into a threesome with another man in the 1970s.

Mr Sampson told the commission he was alerted to allegations against Harvey by the victim’s brother, BLW, and conducted a “fairly cursory” investigation before asking Mr Harvey to retire early.

The commissioners found Mr Sampson should have notified the Victorian Institute of Teaching about the allegations and that he “should have made a documentary record of the reason [Harvey left the school]”.

Instead, Mr Sampson wrote letters to Harvey thanking him for his “outstanding service”, praising him as a “wonderful teacher, an outstanding housemaster, a fine and thoughtful colleague and a tremendous and committed schoolmaster”.

A second letter from Mr Sampson to Harvey confirmed an extra year of pay following his retirement “due to the exceptional service [he] offered”.

The commission dismissed Mr Sampson’s defence that the letters were for personal use: “The letters were plainly kept amongst the school’s formal records in relation to Harvey,” it found

 

“We also reject the submission that the letters were not misleading. No other records were produced which recorded the real reason for Harvey’s departure from the school, and no explanation was given as to why such documents were not produced.”

Mr Sampson, who became the headmaster of Cranbrook in 2012, an Anglican, $35,000-a-year school in Bellevue Hill, told the commission he was acting in the best interests of the victim, BLF, who did not want his identity revealed.

“We accept that Mr Sampson attempted to act in the best interests of BLF by securing Harvey’s resignation without disclosing his identity,” the Commission found. “It is clear, however, that he should have notified the Victorian Institute of Teaching.”

Royal Commission: Vatican has no test for paedophiles

In a separate sitting on Tuesday, the Commission also heard there was no requirement for the Catholic clergy to be screened for sexual attraction to children but that the Vatican does have a detailed assessment procedure for homosexuality.

The Catholic Church’s central authority spent 13 years developing a protocol on homosexual tendencies among potential priests but has stayed “silent” on the issue of paedophiles, the commission heard.

The commission is examining factors behind abuse claims in the Catholic church, with data showing seven per cent of priests were alleged offenders between 1950-2010.

“As I understand it, the Vatican is specific that you must test for homosexual tendencies but the Vatican is silent in that same way on testing for children,” Commissioner Andrew Murray said.

Sister Lydia Allen, who assesses candidates for the Seminary of the Good Shepherd in Homebush, said the Vatican was working on such a document.

“I have asked them if they have any documents on this situation of child abuse and they don’t yet … it’s part of a project they are going to work on,” she said.

“They do not have . . . anything that says, ‘You must assess for that’.

“However, I think it would be an unspoken rule. I don’t think it needs to be stated explicitly because it’s so obvious.”

David Leary, an academic and Franciscan friar, told the inquiry the assessment process was flawed.

“The first test for a candidate for either religious life or the seminary or for the priesthood is not a question about whether or not they’re homosexual,” he said.

“It’s about whether or not they are compassionate and that’s the thing that needs to be tested.”

Dr Leary said the Catholic church was “highly resistant” to understanding how its structures may have led to child sexual abuse.

“I don’t think we understand the psychology that underpins … child sexual abuse,” he said. “It’s really clear in every other jurisdiction except the church.”

Peter Thompson, rector of Vianney College in Wagga Wagga, told the commission it would be impossible to effectively screen every candidate for the priesthood.

“No one can infallibly predict that someone is not going to offend,” he said.

The hearing, before Justice Peter McClellan, continues.

College rocked by new sex scandal

TEACHER Andrew Richards has left Marlborough College after police launched an inquiry into his alleged possession of computer porn.

This week both police and the £22,000-a-year public school, where Princess Eugenie is a pupil, have confirmed that a teacher is being questioned over material found on his computer.

Neither the school or police would name the teacher but the Gazette has established that the man arrested was the housemaster of C3 House.

Sources within the police force and the school confirmed that it had been Richards who was arrested.

The maths teacher was arrested in his home at the school after police carried out an undercover operation two weeks ago and seized his computer. They took action after receiving information that Richards had downloaded obscene images on his computer, which is still being examined by a specialist team of officers.

After news of the arrest began to circulate in the town this week the school issued a statement saying: “Marlborough College can confirm that following the discovery of inappropriate material on a computer, one of our masters has left the school with immediate effect.

“There is no suggestion of improper behaviour with any pupil in the school.

“The College brought the matter to the attention of the relevant authorities, with whom we have been working closely.

“We understand that the police are carrying out an investigation into

this matter and therefore it would not be right for us to comment

further.”

The master of the public school, Nicholas Sampson, said he was unable to make any further comment.

Wiltshire police put out a statement saying: “On Saturday, April 30 as a result of information received from Marlborough College a male member of staff was arrested and interviewed at Salisbury police station.

“The man was subsequently bailed without being charged to return to Salisbury police station on a date in June.

“Inquiries are being completed to establish if any offences have been committed.”

Marlborough College, one of the top five public schools in the UK, has been rocked by several sex scandals in recent years.

In 2003 the school’s swimming pool manager, Mark Davies, was arrested after allegedly indecent pictures were found on his computer. Davies, brother of the Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies, was cautioned but not charged.

In 2002 there was another scandal when students sitting an exam saw pornographic pictures projected onto a screen. Teacher Richard Jowett, who had been invigilating, had been looking at pictures of naked women on his computer unaware that it was sending the images to an overhead screen in full view of pupils.

Geelong Grammar took no steps to protect students after abuse reports, says inquiry

Royal commission releases report into prestigious Victorian private school criticising headmaster who went on to Eton College

The prestigious Geelong Grammar School’s long-time headmaster took no steps to bring in measures to protect students from a teacher alleged to have sexually abused pupils, a royal commission has found.

Geelong Grammar’s 1980-94 headmaster, John Lewis, allowed Jonathan Harvey to remain at the school despite knowing about allegations against him, the child sex abuse royal commission said.

It said by 1991, Lewis – who became headmaster of England’s elite Eton College after leaving Geelong Grammar – knew about allegations Harvey sexually abused students in 1982 and 1985 as well as allegations of inappropriate conduct with students.

“Despite this knowledge, Mr Lewis allowed Harvey to remain in a position where he had unsupervised access to students,” its report said. “Mr Lewis did not take any steps to prepare policies or procedures to protect the safety and welfare of the students at Geelong Grammar.”

Geelong Grammar’s 2001-04 headmaster Nicholas Sampson, now headmaster of Sydney’s Cranbrook School, organised for Harvey to be paid his entire 2005 salary to retire a year early after a staff member complained his brother had been abused by the teacher in the 1970s.

Sampson attempted to act in the victim’s best interests by securing Harvey’s resignation without disclosing the former student’s identity, but should have notified the Victorian Institute of Teaching, the commission found.

Sampson thanked the maths teacher for his outstanding service and did not record in writing the real reasons for Harvey’s departure, despite verbally informing others at the school about the allegations.

The commission said he should have made a documentary record of the reasons, but accepted Sampson’s evidence that he would now approach a similar situation very differently.

The royal commission also criticised Geelong Grammar for not investigating a boarder’s 1989 complaint that he was sexually abused, before expelling the 14-year-old for speaking out.

No member of staff notified police of the allegations, the commission said. Lewis should have ensured the allegation was investigated, it said.

The commission also found the school’s Highton campus master Robert John Bugg was involved in the boarder’s dismissal for discussing the sexual assault with other students.

Bugg must have believed the likely perpetrator was probably a staff member, it said. “In removing BIW from the school and not investigating the complaint, Mr Bugg failed to protect BIW’s interests and the interests of other students at Highton.”

Live-in boarding house assistant Philippe Trutmann was convicted for abusing BIW and 40 other Geelong Grammar students.

The commission found the school put its own financial interests before those of a student seeking compensation after being sexually abused by a teacher by not disclosing that it knew the teacher may have been jailed for pedophilia.

Unsolved murder of Christine Vivian Butcher (7 years) at Windsor, Berkshire, on 8 July 1951.

Was there a member of the royal family or friend of the royal family involved?  Why would those files from a murder in 1951 be closed for so long?

Who is being protected?  What is being covered up?


July 1951

Boxer Sugar Ray Robinson, a 3-to-1 favourite, trained in the shadow of Windsor Castle.

A strange thing happened the day prior to the bout: a young girl named Christine Butcher, aged only seven years, went missing while venturing off to visit Robinson at his camp only 30 metres away, kicking off a feverish police search.

En route to the weigh-in on Windmill Street in London, the streets were so choked with people that Robinson’s Cadillac was literally pushing its way through the crowd. Traffic was stopped in all directions at Piccadilly Circus, with reports stating it was the biggest crowd of people to take to the streets of London since V Day — the day when the Allied powers celebrated victory over the Axis powers six years earlier. Robinson was a half-hour late to the weigh-in because of the traffic.

An A.P. report out of Windsor read: “Christine had a doll that she imagined looked like Sugar Ray. She set off yesterday to show the doll to the champion. No one has reported seeing her since.” It was little more than an afterthought among the more pressing news, like how much heavier than the champion Turpin would scale, but it would later become haunting.

As the two men were toiling inside the ring, an investigation was underway;

The body of young Christine Butcher had been found not far from Windsor and “a white man in a grey suit” was sought for questioning. Her murder kicked off six weeks of similar crimes.

She was murdered on Sunday 8th July 1951 and found on 10th July.

It’s interesting that Christine was on her way to meet Sugar Ray Robinson:

Robinson was a high-ranking mason, and was for a time in a relationship (some sites say married) to Mary Ann Degrimston, co-founder of the (CIA-linked) satanic Process Church, which famously interviewed Savile for the “Sex” issue of their magazine.

Degrimston later worked as an escort in London and may have been involved with the Profumo scandal.

The papers were full of it. The crime was never solved.

 

The Windsor Forest Bowmen (Patron Prince Philip) give their location as St Stephen’s Field, Home Park.

They say that it is at the far end of Romney Lock Road, past the rugby club and cricket club, next to some very large trees.

Jimmy Savile was desperate to take part in the first Tour of Britain, organised as part of the Festival of Britain celebrations and sponsored by the Daily Express . A race of twelve stages covering 1,403 miles over 14 days, it would take riders from London to Brighton, along the south coast and into the West Country, up into Wales, the north-west and the Lake District, before arriving at its most northerly stop in Glasgow. From there, it would head back south to Newcastle, on down the eastern side of England and finish in London. The prize fund totalled a princely £1,000.

 

A place in the four-man team representing Yorkshire could only be secured with a strong performance in one of the major stage races leading up to the Tour. The inaugural Butlins Holiday Camps 7-Day race, which saw competitors racing between camps in the north, was significant not only because it was where Jimmy Savile earned his ride in the Tour of Britain but also as the moment he chose to unleash his brand of jack-the-lad showmanship on an unsuspecting public. ‘Even though I was nobody at the time nationally, I worked by instinct,’ is how he described it to me. ‘In the Butlins Race, he would get to the start dressed in a tuxedo,’ said Ken Russell some 60 years later. ‘And then he would arrange for somebody to come with a tray and mirror and a brushing comb.’ Doug Petty, a young bike builder, gave exactly the same account of Savile’s bizarre antics.

‘Oscar’ was invited to become a race commentator:

‘When the Daily Express stopped sponsoring the Tour of Britain, which would have been about 1954, I remember seeing him on television maybe a year or two afterwards. The BBC was showing Silverstone motor racing and who should be there but Jimmy Savile; it was sponsored by the Daily Express . I often think that’s what made him, really. I think the Daily Express really helped him, they kind of adopted him.’

Savile had ties with Calderdale. He often used to visit St John’s Church, Cragg Vale, for which he raised thousands of pounds, and was an honorary church warden. He was a popular figure in the Calder Valley right up until his death. In the 1970s he had a caravan parked outside the Hinchliffe Arms Cragg Vale. [‘Savile acted ‘unacceptably’ with dead bodies in hospital mortuary, report claims, Halifax Courier, 26 June 2014]

 

In 1967 Savile became Honorary Churchwarden of St John in the Wilderness at Cragg Vale, despite the fact he had only come to the church to help fix a job for a vicar as reported in the Halifax Courier:

“I first came down here to help the church find a vicar and soon after was appointed church warden for my efforts.”

Who had asked Savile down to find a vicar in the first place? And who appointed him Honorary Churchwarden?

In 1960 Rev. David Bennett was ordained and the following year he joined the Victory Lodge in Halifax as a freemason, going on to become one of the most decorated Freemasons in the county of Nottingham in his later career

Having been appointed as ‘Priest in Charge’ of St John the Baptist in the Wilderness in 1967 Rev. Bennett was to eventually have a 25 year long working relationship with Jimmy Savile in youth support and development.

 

Sir Jimmy began fund-raising there in 1967 when his friend, the Rev David Bennett, enlisted his help to raise £8,000 for a new vicarage. The veteran presenter returned regularly to lead 10-mile sponsored walks in aid of the church and other good causes in Calderdale until the late 1970s” (St John’s mourns for honorary church warden Sir Jimmy Savile Halifax Courier – 01 November 2011)

Honorary church warden Jimmy Savile

Savile and the high ranking Freemason W Bro David Bennett

St John’s mourns for honorary church warden Sir Jimmy Savile

The Rev James Allison said he had attended a service there as recently as six months ago and would talk proudly of his honourary role.

“He never announced he was coming, I would just look up and there he’d be in all his glory, usually wearing a shellsuit and everything,” he said.

He was lovely – a really nice man. We are very sad to have lost him. He was a good friend of the church.”

Sir Jimmy began fund-raising there in 1967 when his friend, the Rev David Bennett, enlisted his help to raise £8,000 for a new vicarage. The veteran presenter returned regularly to lead 10-mile sponsored walks in aid of the church and other good causes in Calderdale until the late 1970s.

His lengthy TV career had its roots in Calderdale, with one of his first stints on screen in the 1947 film A Boy, A Girl And A Bike, about a fictional cycling club based in Hebden Bridge.

The late Sir Jimmy Savile was an honourary warden at St John’s church, Cragg Vale, which he raised thousands of pounds for over the years. He is pictured outside the church on September 28, 1991.

Sir Jimmy, then a racing cyclist with Leeds Olympic Club, appeared as an extra alongside members of Halifax Road Racing Club.

Derek Browne, honorary president of the Halifax club, said: “This was possibly his first taste of being involved in show business.”

Freemason Rev David Edward Bennett

Rev David Bennett procurer of children for Savile ?

The MP for that area is Ken Clarke.
1970  Jimmy Savile co-founds The Kingfisher Project in N.Notts (Retford)

Transport.

A coach travels from Retford gathering organisers and children from agreed points. The coach stays with the party for the week in the Gower. Most of the volunteers travel the day before the children by mini bus and a Transit van full of equipment. The “advanced” party prepare the premises prior to the arrival of the children.

Staffing

A multi-disciplinary team of teachers, social workers, youth workers and students. No member of the team is paid for his/her services.

Cost to children and their families

Talk by
W. Brother Reverend David E. Bennett, Provincial Grand Chaplain
entitled:
The Kinghts of Columbus & the Knights of St. Columba. The Influence of Freemasonry.

Meeting followed by an informal finger-buffet lunch.

Any brother wishing to attend should contact the Lodge Secretary no later than 7 days prior to the meeting.

W. Brother David was born in London, and in due course received an MA from Cambridge. He completed his National Service as a sergeant in the RASC-Parachute Regiment. He attended the Wells Theological College, and was ordained in Wakefield Cathedral .

His first Ecclesiastical appointment was as curate of Halifax Parish Church

David spent much of his early working life involved in education in the West Riding of Yorkshire, moving to North Derbyshire, to County Durham, and Northumberland.

He became an Educational Inspector for Nottingham County Council, and appointed Chaplain to the Lord Mayor of Nottingham in 1988.

David was initiated into the Craft in 1961 into Victory Lodge and in due time became an active Provincial Officer has also been WM of Notts. Installed Masters and gained Provincial and Grand Ranks in Mark, Red Cross, Knights Templar, Allied Degrees. 30o Rose Croix, and past Z in Royal Arch

Last year was the 50th anniversary of David’s Ordination, and this year marks his 50th year in Freemasonry

As can be seen David has had a very active and distinguished career in Freemasonry and his dissertation on the Knights of Columba and Columbus should prove to be very interesting and enlightening.

 

CABINET minister Ken Clarke was dramatically dragged into the Jimmy Savile scandal yesterday.

It emerged that BBC pervert Savile was “given the keys” to Broadmoor secure hospital around 1988 — when Mr Clarke was Health Secretary.

Mr Clarke was last night forced to defend himself, saying: “I have no
recollection of ever having met Jimmy Savile and no recollection of these events.

“The Department of Health are now investigating to establish the facts.”

Rev David bennett of Nottingham Gunthorpe high street met Savile after his mining accident in LEEDS where they apparently bonded. before he/they went on the prowl

On one occasion Savile sent Johnnie away with Eager on a foreign trip with underprivileged children from a home in Manchester. Eager said Johnnie Savile turned up at the airport wearing a T-shirt with ‘I’m Jimmy Savile’s brother’ emblazoned on the front. They went to Mamaia in Romania. Although Eager claimed not to remember when the trip took place or the name of the Manchester children’s home, he did recall that the home was subsequently embroiled in a scandal.

In 2014, the Department of Education announced it was launching an inquiry into Jimmy Savile’s activities at schools and children’s homes.

Among the institutions listed was Broome House in Manchester. Ronald Hall, a former warden of Broome House, was Assistant Director of Manchester Social Services when he was arrested by Manchester detectives in 2001. He was jailed for 11 years for 21 counts of sexual and physical abuse. His deputy at Broome House, Ian Gray, was given a 14-year sentence for serious sexual offences. Soon after Education Secretary Michael Gove commissioned the inquiry, a former resident at Broome House told the Manchester Evening News 4 how Ronald Hall had driven him from the home and delivered him to Jimmy Savile at Piccadilly Station. He said Savile plied him with alcohol and he woke up on the floor of his flat in Salford. He also stated that Savile visited Broome House on a number of further occasions.

During 1974 and 1975 Savile was holding annual fundraising events ‘Tea-rific’ for NAYC and while writing his autobiography (published in 1974) referred to himself as Vice-President to Angus Ogilvy’s President.


He always told me that when it came to the royal family he had taken the oath of omertà , which was apt given that he was prone to referring to himself as ‘the Godfather’. However, on this particular evening he’d already touched on his friendship with the Duke of Edinburgh and was just beginning to tell me a story about Earl Louis Mountbatten

As accusations against the shamed star last night continued to mount, the Daily Mirror can also reveal

 Savile arranged for 60 patients, including convicted murderers, to be granted early release.

Savile helps 60 Broadmoor patients to move out.

A new management team was established at Broadmoor last year by the then junior health minister, Mrs Edwina Currie (who knew that Sir Morrison as a “noted pederast).

But for the patients who remained, Savile used his trusted status at the hospital in Crowthorne, Berks, to organise day trips for patients to the Queen’s back garden at Windsor Great Park and aboard a luxury boat on the Thames.

Broadmoor

HC Deb 11 July 1985 vol 82 cc533-4W 533W  §

Mr. Peter Bruinvels asked the Secretary of State for Social Services

(1) if he will take steps to prevent patients at Broadmoor from being allowed out on visits; (2) why patients from Broadmoor were recently allowed to visit Windsor; and if he will make a statement.

clarke20award_zps6kvd6nbk

§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Visits outside Broadmoor hospital and the other special hospitals are an important element in patient rehabilitation programmes. The visit to Windsor to which my hon. Friend refers took place in July 1984 without any complaint from anyone at the time. Decisions on patient outings or other visits are matters for the clinical judgment of responsible medical officers. In the case of restricted patients, absences from the hospital require the approval of my right hon. and learned Friend, the Home Secretary. (Leon Brittan – 1985)

Patients taking part in group outings are escorted continuously by nurses from the hospitals. I am quite satisfied that there is no unacceptable degree of risk to the public from such visits.

Sugar Ray Robinson and the Process Church

Let’s play 6 degrees of separation with Annie Besant, Charles Leadbetter, Charles Manson, Mary Ann MacLean, Mary Tyler Moore and Sugar Ray Robinson… the connections are diabetes, animal rights, cults and people who travel with an entourage.

“Sugar Ray Robinson was the pioneer of boxing’s bigger-than-life entourages, including a secretary, barber, masseur, voice coach, a coterie of trainers, beautiful women, a dwarf mascot and lifelong manager George Gainford. When Robinson returned to Paris in 1962—where he was a national hero—to get him to cross the seas the French had to promise to bring over his masseur, his hairdresser, a guy who whistled while he trained, and his trademark pink Cadillac.

The Process Church of the Final Judgement was founded by Mary Ann MacLean and Robert DeGrimston Moore. Several sources report her as having once been married to Sugar Ray Robinson

Roman Polanski ‘should not receive special treatment in child sex case’, judge hears

Roman Polanski 'should not receive special treatment in child sex case', judge hears
Prosecutors have called for the Oscar-winning director to return to the US to be sentenced.
20 March, 2017

Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski should return to the US to be sentenced for child sexual abuse and not receive special treatment as a “wealthy celebrity”, prosecutors have said.

A judge in Los Angeles is considering whether the long-running case involving the French-Polish film-maker – who has spent nearly 40 years on the run – should be drawn to a close.

Polanski, now 83, pleaded guilty to having unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl at actor Jack Nicholson’s house but fled the US on the eve of sentencing in 1978.

Lawyers for the director say he is willing to return to America from France if he is assured he will not serve more jail time.

But prosecutor Michele Hanisee told a court hearing on Monday that Polanski was asking for “special treatment” and for the court to “completely abandon legal principles”.

“The People simply do not believe it is in the best interests of justice to give a wealthy celebrity – and that’s what Mr Polanski is – different treatment than any other fugitive from justice,” she said.

“If Mr Polanski returns, the People are confident he will get a fair hearing here in this court.”

Polanski’s lawyer Harland Braun said his client’s crime was “indefensible” but he fled at the time because he was “lied to” by the court about the sentence he would receive.

Polanski with the Palme d’Or for his film The Pianist

“This is a very unique case,” Mr Braun said.

“He is an 83-year-old man with a 40-year-old case that he wants to wrap up.”

Mr Braun told the court that the sentence at the time of Polanski’s offence was a maximum of two years in prison with 50% credit – meaning he would have spent 12 months in custody “at most”.

Polanski had already served 10-and-a-half months in custody in the US and Switzerland, he added.

Polanski fled the US after spending 42 days in an American jail when he feared a now-deceased judge would extend his sentence.

“He knows what he was promised,” Mr Braun said.

“We know he has served eight times what he was promised.”

The lawyer told the court the victim in the case said she wants “this thing over with”. He also called for a warrant issued for Polanski’s arrest to be dropped.

After hearing arguments from both lawyers, Judge Scott Gordon said he would issue a written ruling at a later date.

Savile told hospital staff he performed sex acts on corpses in Leeds mortuary

Former TV presenter said he posed with bodies in lewd positions and stole glass eyes, Broadmoor nurse tells investigators

Jimmy Savile told hospital staff he interfered with patients’ corpses, taking grotesque photographs and stealing glass eyes for jewellery, over two decades at the mortuary of Leeds general infirmary.

The late Top of the Pops presenter had free access to the mortuary from the late 1970s to the mid-1990s, an official investigation has found, concluding that Savile’s interest in the deceased was “not within accepted boundaries“.

Savile was said to have been best friends with the chief mortician of Leeds general infirmary, who is now dead, and had regular unsupervised access to the mortuary from the late 70s until the mid-90s.

Massive Cover-ups – Prince Philip

There are at least 27 D-Notices in place to prevent details of Philip’s sordid predilections getting into the public domain. The notices last for a staggering 100 years.

According to the Mirror:

SECRET files about Prince Philip’s private life are to remain locked behind closed doors for 100 years.

Most confidential Cabinet documents relating to relating to the royals and government are covered by the “30-year rule”.

But at least 27 royal files in the vaults of the Public Records Office at Kew, West London and many of , are considered so delicate they are labelled: “Closed for 100 years“.

More than 10 concern astonishing MI5 and Scotland Yard reports on the Duke Of Edinburgh’s private life.

As an explosive new biography of the Queen hints that the Greek-born Prince was unfaithful to the Queen, we can reveal that Buckingham Palace courtiers and security chiefs were once so concerned about Philip’s non- royal activities that they ordered round-the-clock surveillance.

They feared the Royal Family would be compromised and that there would be a constitutional crisis if news leaked out of how the Prince was behaving.

He was known to be “letting his hair down” with celebrities of the day at weekly meetings of the Thursday Club above exclusive Wheeler’s Restaurant in Soho.

One senior detective, now retired, who was attached to the Prince’s protection team, said: “It’s true we had to report back on where we had been and who had been present.”

But he refused to discuss the Prince’s private visits.It is not known what details of Prince Philip’s private life were made known to the Queen or the Privy Council. But it will not be until the years 2052 to 2060 that they will be released – if then.”

Jimmy Savile Takes Young Girl To Prince Philip in Buckingham Palace.


Another murdered girl is found on the grounds of  a different royal family estate – Sandringham – the castle where convicted establishment paedophile Jeffrey Epstein visited and hunted.

Murdered girl found near royal stud farm

British police said that a young woman’s body was found in the forest at Sandringham and that they are treating it as a murder case.

Queen Elizabeth II and her family gathered in rural splendor to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s.

Sandringham has long been one of the queen’s favorite residences, especially during the holidays.

The royal family also typically enjoys horseback riding and shooting parties at Sandringham

Buckingham Palace officials are staying mum about the murder case.

Prince Philip normally leads shooting parties on the estate and has previously been seen with his gun in the field next to the wooded area.

An inquest into the death of Lithuanian teenager Alisa Dmitrijeva will take place more than two and a half years after her body was found on the Sandringham Estate

The last positive sighting of her was in Friar’s Street, King’s Lynn at 12.15am on Wednesday 31 August 2011, where she was seen in a green Lexus car with two men.

Despite extensive enquiries and tests, police have been unable to confirm exactly how or when Alisa died.

They are also appealing for anyone with information about her black LG GM360 phone which is also missing.

The last signal her phone gave out was at the nearby Sandringham estate.

Despite the inquest today the case of Alisa’s death does remain open

The now-frowned upon custom of a royal hunt was, at the time, a popular past-time amongst royals and wealthy

In 1961, Prince Philip went ahead with the hunt despite protests from British and Indian politicians.

On the same trip he is said to have killed a crocodile and six mountain sheep.

Critics of the Duke’s fondness for hunting claim he has shot at least 30,000 pheasants in Britain alone and has also killed deer, rabbit, wild duck, pigeon and partridge.

Visit: Paedophile Jeffrey Epstein was hosted by Prince Andrew at Sandringham,The Queen’s home in Norfolk

Jeffrey Epstein ‘kept a diary of his under-aged victims

The Duke of York’s billionaire paedophile friend kept a secret journal, described as “The Holy Grail” by lawyers, which listed his alleged under-aged victims and the celebrity guests he entertained at his Florida mansion.

The billionaire financier, who attended The Queen’s birthday party in 2000, was sentenced to 18 months in prison in 2008

Prince Andrew’s billionaire convicted paedophile friend, Jeffrey Epstein, given permission to land his private jet at RAF base for visit to Sandringham

The flight log of Epstein’s Gulfstream revealed it touched down at RAF Marham on December 7, 2000, before he was hosted by the Andrew at the Queen’s Norfolk residence.

Civil aviation authorities called the situation ‘unusual’.

He is alleged to have used his fleet of private aircraft to traffic under-aged girls around the world for sex.

Entries in the Gulfstream’s flight log reveal he regularly flew alone with Virginia Roberts, who has claimed she was used as a ‘sex slave’ by Epstein from the age of 15. Roberts was photographed with the Duke.

www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1364742/Jeffrey-Epstein-Prince-Andrews-billionaire-paedophile-friend-visit-Sandringham.html

The Palace has declined to say, for example, why Andrew was in the company of a 17-year-old masseuse working for Epstein at Maxwell’s home.

The Palace also refuses to answer questions about Andrew’s friendship with Epstein, or confirm the several occasions the two men appear to have partied together.

Those reported encounters between Epstein and Andrew, some of which appear to be corroborated by flight logs for Epstein’s private planes, which have been reviewed by the Guardian, stretch back more than a decade.

They include parties at Windsor Castle and Sandringham, the Queen’s Norfolk estate,

an exclusive dinner in St Tropez and a holiday in Thailand…

Indeed, the Palace has never offered a public explanation for Andrew’s most controversial meeting with Epstein, which occurred in New York in 2011. That was two years after Epstein had been released from prison. He was, by then, a registered sex offender, and though some celebrities were still willing to be seen with him, he’d been abandoned by many of the more influential figures he previously called his friends.

SANDRINGHAM AND JEFFREY EPSTEIN

aangirfan.blogspot.com/2012/01/sandringham-and-jeffrey-epstein.html


 

Let’s reveal millions of royal secrets

“It begs the question: what have they got to hide? Help us find out.”

Graham Smith, Republic’s CEO

 

Millions of secrets

Did you know the royals are more secretive than the CIA or MI5?  That’s according to historians who have tried to uncover secrets held in the royal archives.

Millions of official papers, including letters to and from prime ministers and international figures, are locked away in Windsor Castle.  Why?  Because they’re documents held by the royal family, and instead of being transferred to the National Archive they have been retained by the royals and put in the Royal Archive.

That means the official record of Britain’s head of state – evidence of exactly what’s been going on behind closed doors for decades – is kept a closely guarded secret.

Hidden past

The Royal Archive, created in 1914, is treated by the royals as private and personal.  Unlike the National Archive in Kew it is not subject to official regulations that allow widespread disclosure. Yet these are the official records of Britain’s head of state.

There is no systematic releasing of letters and documents under the 30 year rule, no access under Freedom of Information laws – there isn’t even a publicly accessible catalogue of the material the archive holds.  None of the standards and rules applied to government documents are applied to the records of the Queen, her predecessors or her family.  The history of the monarchy is hidden away from public gaze.

Not just hidden, but often destroyed.  So determined the royals are to hide their secrets the King sent a courtier to Germany in 1945 to retrieve letters from the archives of relatives there. Credible reports suggest that the royals have since destroyed thousands of documents from the 1930s and 40s.
