If you have not visited the Distinguished OFs section recently, you will find that Chris Essex has been hard at work. There are now over 700 names listed with more than 300 detailed articles; and the list keeps growing. The list covers from the College start in 1865 through to current students. There is a large section on the Services including our 3 VC’s; there are Princes, Barons, Knights, Sawbwe’s (have a look if you don’t know what that is!), Prime Ministers, and MPs; Presidents of the Royal Academy and members of the Royal Society; pioneering aviators, engineers, doctors, dentists and brewers; Olympians and international sportsmen (hockey, cricket, squash, tennis, shooting and sailing). There are the College’s own dynastic families stretching over 5 generations. Soon we hope to add film of Percy Pickard’s raid on Amiens Prison; and audio from Augustus Agar VC. Take a little while to browse and enjoy the great heritage of being an OF. If you know of anyone that we have missed, please email Chris Essex at the Website Team. – you might even propose yourself (and you wouldn’t be the first!).
