Thanks for your help will definitely contact the Herne Bay group.

I have the certificate from the shorthand competition which doesnít give any added info

I have my fathers birth certificate and his deed poll certificate for legal change of name.
 I have found him in 1921 census and 1939 register, will have to live with the gaps in his childhood and war time

Thanks again much appreciated

My father Harry Behn born 1901 Nestor Cheshire, took his stepfathers surname of Shawcross following an acrimonious divorce of his parents. So he would have been 15 when the shorthand competition took place, I have never been able to find what happened during his early years, not recorded on 1911 census. So finding this information about Herne Bay I thought I may have cracked the enigma

What does ď new College Contingent of Herne Bay College mean.
I had hoped this would solve the mystery as to where my father went to school. His brother went to Eastbourne College but have never found his school, as lead to believe he was schooled abroad as was fluent French speaker

I am looking for information regarding the above school, apparently they held the Oxford shorthand competition in 1916 which was recorded in the Herne Bay Press on 9/12/1916.
Any information regarding the school and how to find register of old pupils would be appreciated
