The third section starts with a link to the synopsis of events at Queen Victoria School (QVS) as related by an ex-housemaster to a journalist in 2003.  It is followed by letters from Tom Minogue to three people who were members of the Board of Commissioners of QVS at the time of the physical and sexual abuse there, and the subsequent Dunblane Massacre.  Those contacted, inter alios, were Lieutenant General Sir Peter Graham, Lord Ross the then Lord Justice Clerk, and Ian Lang the then Scottish Secretary.   The section ends with links to the Cullen Inquiry transcript where three witnesses mentioned Hamilton's connection with QVS, yet, sinisterly, neither Cullen nor anyone else questioned witnesses about Hamilton's connection with the military boarding school.

Dear Sir,

Members of the Board of Her Majesty’s Commissioners
Queen Victoria School Dunblane 1990-1996
.

I believe that you served as a member on the Board of Management in the above and wonder if you could point me in the right direction to obtain details of the individuals who belonged to a group entitled “Friends of QVS”.

My request is a serious one and is in no way part of any commercial enterprise but is rather a matter of public importance.

Thanking you in anticipation of your cooperation.

Yours faithfully,
Thomas Minogue.                                                                                       Return to Index

Dear Sir,

Queen Victoria School Dunblane, 1989-1992

I thank you for your letter and regret that I have to ask more questions which I would be obliged if you would consider answering and while I have had no indication to date that the allegations have found any corroboration among the Commissioners of QVS I must be seen to be taking this matter seriously and make no apology for asking these further questions which you are of course at liberty to ignore.

I am looking into a complaint that has been raised with me by an ex-employee of the above establishment, which I understand you were associated with between 1989 and 1992.   The nature of my enquiries which I must take seriously centre on three allegations of circumstances pertaining during the above period, which are as follows:

  1. That a group of prominent people with no official connection to the school, who were known as the “Friends of QVS”, visited the school and took boys home for weekends.
  2. That Thomas Hamilton (The Dunblane killer) was known as a “Friend of QVS” and had access to and influence in the Queen Victoria School.
  3. That there were allegations of widespread Bullying and Abuse of some of the pupils by fellow pupils and others.

I would be obliged if you could tell me anything you know of these allegations which have been the subject of representations by me to all of the Commissioners who I have been able to contact to date.   If you can advise me of any contact addresses on the list then please do, as I would like to attempt to do justice to my research.

Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours faithfully,
Thomas Minogue.   Petitioner to the Scottish Parliament.                          Return to Index

The three people mentioned below, brought up Thomas Hamilton's connection with Queen Victoria School in their evidence to the Cullen Inquiry, but, sinisterly, no effort was made to probe further into this most mysterious of circumstances by Cullen or by the law agents for the Crown or for the families of the victims of the Dunblane massacre.  WHY?
