In 1953 the Rev JPH Hobson, Headmaster of a school in Surrey contacted Frank Richards to ask if he would write a short story for the school magazine. Hamilton replied saying that the publishers barred Greyfriars, St Jim's and Rookwood but he would be happy to write short Carcroft story. The story appeared in the school magazine and was later reprinted in the 1986 edition of the Collectors Digest Annual. You can read the article and story here.
