Wanted: Volunteer(s)
"Wanted for hazardous journey. Small wages, bitter cold, long months of darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in case of success"

Actually we are not re-enacting Shackleton's journey to the Antarctic but we do need a volunteer or volunteers to take on the development and management of the "Famous OFs" section of the SOF media. YOU DO NOT NEED TECHNICAL ABILITY. We don't want to describe the work in too much detail as the remit and time-commitment is really up to the right person(s) to develop. We do have some ideas and potential leads and have already done some preparatory work in the website archive; liaison will be vital with the rest of the SOF media team on leads and potential stories.

Email your interest to the Website Team - webmaster@oldframlinghamian.com

Stronger Links between SOF and College approved at AGM

Norman Porter's final act as President of the Society was to steer through the revisions to our rules which, among other things, provide for the appointment of current students (Head of School, Toby Hough and Head Girl, Roberta Organ) and of the College faculty to our Council.

Anyone for Skype?
Alfred Molson (K38-43) is one of our more senior OFs who lives in Texas. He is also a member of the Houston Area League of Personal Computer users. Hence the domain name of his email address - authoriseduser@hal-pc.org. Alfred says that he is not technically competent at computers but keen to learn, particularly as he relies on his bank of computer screens at home to continue his daily financial trading. He is now a keen proponent of VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) of which Skype is probably the most popular, and easy to use and instal, of the various programs available. And it is free to use if calls are made computer to computer. However it is very easy to call computer to telephone to most places in the world at a basic rate of about 2p/minute!!

Click on "Read More" to learn all about it. Certainly all the SOF web team use Skype and love it!

New Photos in Website Gallery
Recent photos added to the Gallery include:

Garrett Hockey 1st XI - 1974?? - Iain Dickson kindly supplied the photo and remembered the names of all his teammates but cannot recall the exact year. Is it 1974? He adds that Garrett beat Rendlesham 3-2 in the final. See - 1970s Gallery.

Rendlesham House photo - 1981 - Paul Langham had a good go at identifying his contemporaries but some blanks remain. See - 1980s Gallery. In the same section are photos of Ziegele House 1984 and Rendlesham 1986 - but with no-one identified. Let us know if you have any names.

There are many more photos with gaps in the names, so do have a look at the Gallery and let us know if you may be able to assist with identification.

Any help in filling in the information gaps or even supplying more photos would be appreciated (either email a scanned image or contact us if you need us to do the scanning) . Email the website team - webmaster@oldframlinghamian.com.
