Class of 1950 reunion held at The Five Lamps on Tuesday 26th March 2019
The run up to this meeting saw the sad deaths of David Owen (January) and Allan Squires (March) and these inevitably cast a bit of a cloud on our meeting. However on the upside, attendance was more buoyant than expected – with fourteen of us making the meeting (That is 13 from the class of 1950 plus Barrie Sheard – our adopted friend and the OD Archivist.)
 
As usual, the meeting was totally informal, but overall we all enjoyed almost 2.5 hours of good conversation accompanied by some excellent food and drink. We received greetings and good wishes from six of our number who were unable to join us: John Bishop; John Dring; Tony Holmes; David Hughes and John Williams. John was due to have a heart operation last week-end so we trust he is now well on the way to recovery. Geoff Neaum was planning to attend, but a neighbour needed an urgent trip to hospital.
We were delighted to welcome Neville back to this meeting since he managed to miss both last year because he was out of the country – he brought an interesting report of his trip down the Mississippi River – and came in his pre-war Austin Seven motor – which caused considerable interest in the car-park! A particular feature of this meeting was the amount of memorabilia that were brought for interest and for inclusion in the OD archives. Barrie was delighted and almost overwhelmed.
 
Please put the date of the next meeting in your diary same time, same place on Tuesday September 17th. Hopefully a goodly number of us will be able to make it this time.
