Help to identify a novel...

I was wondering if you could help me identify a novel. All I know is that it was published between 1960 and 1985. It's a young adult novel, concerning a group of children with special powers or gifts. One of these children was called "The General" because he wasn't gifted exclusively in any one thing but seemed to have a knack for everything. The children's gifts may have been connected to beads which they collected and placed in  torcs or necklaces.

If anyone can answer this please email info@britishfantasysociety.org.uk or post here and I'll pass the information on.

Cheers

Maybe it was just a leaky synapse firing, but something in my head suggested THE CHRYSALIDS by John Wyndham.

Unfortunately I can't lay hands on my copy to check it out.
