    In 1929 Old Eastbournian Gordon Carey became headmaster. Carey had been head boy under Arnold, and a Stag for four seasons.

    A chorister at King's, scholar of Caius, Cambridge, he was a rugby blue for two years and later played for the Barbarians.

    He served with distinction with the Rifle Brigade in the First World War and with the RAF as a staff officer in the Second World War. A reforming headmaster, he promoted music and the arts into mainstream activities

    Gordon Carey is extremely well known to me and his service in the Rifle Brigade if you need further information.
