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!!

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.

Jeff Wornham killed while saving lives in Stevenage fire
Many of us will have seen reports on the news about the Stevenage tower-block fire in which two brave fireman were killed on 2 February 2005 while trying to save a trapped woman. One of those heroic men was Jeff Wornham (K 89-95), brother of Tom Wornham (K 86-92).

Updated 14th Feb:
Tom has said that the funeral will be mainly a family affair, but that there is to be a Memorial Service for Jeff and for Michael Miller at St Albans Cathedral on the 15th March. He thanks those many friends who have called offering sympathy and support.

Lizzie Honeycombe (P91-98), Jeff's girlfriend of the last three years, told the East Anglian Daily Times he was a wonderful man and they had hoped to marry next year. See Read More for the full story.
