My uncle, son of an Indian Army doctor, born in 1930 was sent to Durnford. It was years after the Fleming brothers were there and he was there when it closed was requisitioned for radar research in 1939. He and the boys were transferred to another school nearby. He has never told me about Durnford, but it was notoriously a tough school. However, they did teach him to spell cough correctly.
