Chris Essex (K69-75) writes: Firstly an apology. For the first time in 10 years I failed to publish on the website a Spring 2015 Overseas Bag and the newsletter only carried some news on the 150th anniversary events. This edition and the 2015 Yearbook therefore contain a bumper crop of articles from over 500 emails received/sent. I have published the full version of the Overseas Bags for Spring/Autumn 2015 in the People section.
The highlight of the last year has clearly been the number of overseas events that have been organised to mark 150th anniversary of the first boys entering the College in April 1865. A huge thank you to all the organisers who came forward to get these off the ground and to everyone who was able to attend. The website already contains full stories and pictures on each of these events so please read them there and summary will appear in the Yearbook so this Overseas Bag only makes occasional passing reference to these wonderful events..
I hope these events will continue to be held on an annual or bi annual basis going forward, some on a more local basis like in Australia and Germany. I will still be trying to encourage new events in the likes of Belgium, Cayman Islands, Ireland, Kenya/Uganda, Nigeria, France, Spain, Thailand, east coast USA. If you are interested in helping/attending then please get in touch. As in the case of a number of events held in 2015 I will try and attend if possible. Email Chris Essex
