Jeff Wilkinson, archivist at the school, has requested that this be passed on:
I know that this is a long-shot but I am aware that we have Old Maidstonians who lived at this time and have good memories, so please can you help? I am trying to find any OM who has memories of William Golding, author of ‘Lord of the Flies’, when he taught at the school between 1938 and 1940, or perhaps when he joined the Navy for war-time service. My reason for asking is that Kent Life are intending publishing an article about him next year as a celebration of the time he spent at MGS and I am sure that individual memories would highlight the item.
If any relation of yours was at MGS at that time but does not have internet access, then perhaps you could ask them on my behalf.
Please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanking you in anticipation,
Jeff Wilkinson, Archivist
