Are there staff lists in W.T. Featherstone's DBS Register?
Apologies for duplicating this enquiry which I added to an existing DBS thread a week ago and have just corrected. It eluded David’s weekly summary last week and perhaps got buried, but now appears below this post. In the HK Daily Press article uploaded to Gwulo which describes the expedition of DBS boys through the Golden Hill Tunnel in 1926, https://gwulo.com/comment/58391#comment-58391 I was startled to see the name of my father, C.R. Warren given as one of the three masters who led the group. I know he was in Hong Kong from 1924-1927, but we have never known what he did in this period. He always complained that he could not be taken on by the family company, C.E. Warren & Co. after his father’s death. Aged only 15, he had no qualifications and would not have been able to pull his weight. His name appears after those of the other two masters, Waterhouse and Washington and not in alphabetical order, which made me think that the listing was by seniority. Aged 18 in 1926 and with his British public school background, I wondered if he might have been taken on by DBS as a Teaching Assistant and a useful extra for sport and drama at which he had himself been good at school. It is confusing that the expedition was organised by a Mr. P. R. Warren – not a relative. Can anyone tell me if W.T. Featherstone’s Register includes a year on year staff list? A yes or no will give me a start. Of course I should dearly like to know if my father’s name appears, but his participation as a staff member, if it happened at all, may have anyway been too brief.
