(class
of
1922 and
%%pictured
right on
his
wedding
day) cel-
c&6Sebrated
his
100th birthday
with family
and friends
on
12
November.
Mr
Broad
was born when
George
V
had
just
come
to
the throne,
Herbert Asquith
was
the
Prime
Minister of
a Liberal
government
and
Lloyd
George
had
just won
a
momentous
clash
with the
House
of
Lords
over
the
People's
Budget.
One
of
his
earliest memories
was
of
seeing
servicemen
wounded
in
the
Battle of
the
Somme
in
Pymmes
Park
when
the North
Middlesex was
a
receiving hospi-
tal
for the
British Army.
He has
particular
memories of chatting
with
Richard
Ashworth about
Liberal
party
politics
when
he
was
in
the
sixth
form
while
on
the train from
Liverpool Street.
As
well
as
being captain of
Wyatt
House,
Sidney
was captain of
the
cricket and
foot-
ball
first
X1s.
ln
1929
when
the
new head-
teacher
VSE
Davis
introduced
a
prefect
sys-
tem,
Sidney
Broad
became
the first
head
boy
at
Latymer.
ln
1929
Mr
Broad
went to
Queens
College,
Oxford
where
he read History.
He
went into
educational
administration
for
Middlesex and
in
1941
was
released
from
his
reserved occupation and served
in
the
Royal Navy
until
1945, becoming

The
start of
-f
iil
5l'.,f,|"i;
of
20t!h2
season
for
Latymer Old Boys' Football Club
has been
exciting
both
on and
off the
pitch.
While
on
the
pitch our
1st Xl
are back in senior
football for the first
time
in a
number
of
years
following promotion
last season,
it
is
off the pitch where we
have
a real
cause
for
celebration. We
have
taken
the
very difficult
decision
to
move home
to
the
new Queen Elizabeth ll
stadium
site
at
Enfield playing
fields.
Now up
and
run-
ning,
it
is
also
the main
home
of
Enfield
Town
Football
Club.
The
benefits of our new
home
are
newly refurbished
changing rooms
twice
the
size
of
the
previous
ones
with
show-
ers
and
toilets
in each, a bar on site and,
most importantly,
all
our
home
sides
playing in
one
place, at
the
same
time
on
Lieutenant Commander
RNVR.
ln 1954,
he
became Chief Education Officer
for
Hertfordshire,
a
position
that
he
occupied
with
great
distinction until
L971.
ln 1970
he
was made
a
Commander
of
the
British
Empire
for
services
to
Education.
Congratulations,
