Richard Sayer Presides at Trafalgar Banquet
Richard Sayer (S56-61), Prime Warden of the Worshipful Company of Shipwrights (whose appointment was reported here earlier this year) presided at a Trafalgar Banquet held on 31st October at the Mansion House, London. The banquet was attended by the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of London, to whom Richard presented a donation to his annual appeal.

Among OFs present was Ian Foster (K46-53), with his long-term partner Tessa Langham, to whom he was married recently in Gibraltar.

Help with 1936 Rugby 1st XV Photo
UPDATE 9 Nov 2005 - the last player is confirmed as A J Brown.
UPDATE 31 Oct 2005 - John Simpson (K32-36) and Ken Knight (K32-38) have now identified all but one name but have added possible suggestions. It is sobering to realise that 5 of the team were killed in action and appear on the College War Memorial.

We have received several photos from the possessions of the late John Randell (SOF President G54-63). One of the photos was of the 1936 Rugby 1st XV. Exactly why John had a copy of this photo is not clear. If anyone can assist with the names of the people in the photo then please email the Website Team.

I would guess that most of the team left Fram in 1937 or 1938, so about 1 year after Norman Borrett. The photo is inscribed with names but unfortunately they are indistinct but might help prompt someone's recollection. We will add names to the Gallery photo as we learn them.

OFGS v Aldeburgh ends in 4-all draw after an early lead
Robin Anderton and his eight-man team had a terrific 36-hole struggle against Aldeburgh Golf Club on 17th September and built themselves a 2 1/2 to 1 1/2 lead by lunch. However, Aldeburgh fortified themselves sufficiently to pull-back to 4 - 4 by the end of the day, which was very much enjoyed by all concerned.
