Dunblane Primary School. In 1996, ’16 children from this class were shot dead.’
Thomas Hamilton was held responsible for the 1996 school shooting in Dunblane.
He was a friend of QVS.
“Lord Robertson was the referee on Thomas Hamilton’s shotgun licence.”
Thomas Hamilton ran clubs and camps for boys and had access to the Queen Victoria School, in Dunblane, a boarding school run by the Ministry of Defence.
It has been suggested that Thomas Hamilton was a patsy and that the real shooters were working for the security services.
In the Dunblane shootings, “none of the survivors would have been able to obtain a good viewing of the gunman.”

Ben Philip died in December 1993, aged 46, ‘when he fell from a ladder while hanging decorations’.
Malcolm Rifkind‘s close friend Robert Bell sold guns and ammunition to Thomas Hamilton only a few weeks before the Dunblane massacre, according to the Edinburgh Evening News on 23 March 1996.
Malcolm Rifkind is the cousin of Sir Leon Brittan.
Secretary of State for Scotland, Michael Forsyth was on the Board of Directors of QVS, and was also responsible for the appointment of Cullen to conduct the school shooting Inquiry.
Prince Philip, a Freemason, is the patron of the Board of Directors of QVS.
Lord Donald Ross, the then Lord Justice-Clerk and Cullen’s superior in the judiciary, was also on the Board of Directors.
Glenn Harrison, a former housemaster at the boarding school, first raised the alarm about QVS in 1991.
Harrison referred to the ‘Friends of QVS’, which included top people who would often take boys away for the weekend, with the pupils returning “distressed but flush with cash”.
“I became disturbed, too, by screams in the dorm at night, empty beds, rituals in dark places and used, warm, filled condoms hurriedly abandoned. There was fear throughout every age group and the teachers knew about it.”
Harrison and his wife refused to sit next to Prince Andrew at a school dinner “in protest at the many unheard voices and suffering of young boys”.
The police responded to Harrison’s whistleblowing.
He was escorted from the school premises and interviewed by detectives.
Harrison moved to Shetland.
In November 1996, Harrison wrote to The Shetland Times to say: “I believe that, had my allegations in 1991 been properly investigated, there is a strong possibility that Hamilton would have been discovered.”
Detective Chief Inspector Elaine Galbraith, of the Police Scotland Public Protection Unit, said there were no current investigations into any persons connected with Queen Victoria School.
Lt Cdr Allan Waters, 57, worked with the Sea Cadet Corps in Britain for more than 30 years
In 2006, in India, Waters was jailed for child sex abuse.
Boys had been stripped naked and regularly caned.
“Information received by The Daily Telegraph ( Call for Sea Cadet inquiry after sex abuse case – Telegraph) said that Waters was caught in a compromising act with a young cadet while he was commanding the Clapton unit of the Sea Cadets in London in the early 1980s.
Reportedly, Waters was reassigned to another unit, and continued to rise up the ranks of the organisation.
Waters was appointed superintendent of the Sea Cadet training centre in Portsmouth in 1996.
Waters was a member of the Sea Cadet Council, the highest body of the corps.
The Sea Cadets confirmed that it was aware “that a report was made by a Sea Cadet officer who had concerns about Waters” in the early 1980s but said that allegations had “not been substantiated”.
In 2006, Jersey Police, in the UK, were investigating child abuse by ‘carers’.
The commanding officer of the Jersey Sea Cadets was arrested for downloading pornographic images including some involving sea cadets.
The attitude of the Sea Cadet authorities of that time ’caused great concern’. (Cached)
There were several convictions for sexual offences involving officers of Jersey Sea Cadets.
Police began noticing links between the victims in those cases and other institutions on the island, including Haut de la Garenne.
It was announced, in September 2008, that the police investigation of alleged child abuse at the Jersey Sea Cadets has been abandoned.
The Jersey police claim there is insufficient evidence.
The Sea Cadet force used Haut de la Garenne (child brothel).
