Reunion, anyone?  Rivetting memories, guys!  I can't believe the place was as bad as we make it out to be ... otherwise how could we be such sane, upstanding individuals?  :)

I'd lie to meet up with my contemporaries - it's just over 50 years since I first went there, and won't be around for much longer!

Ah, Mr Bibby...I remember you, or at least I remember your name.  I too have been getting nostalgic about my time at Q.E so last year I went to the Eric Shearly Memorial Rugby Match on a kind of 'recce', to pay my respects to the old feller and to see if I recognised anyone.  I didn't.  Not a soul!  There were lots of 'old farts' there like me but none that I recognised - and presumably none that recognised me either.  I did speak to one or two people but they were all in their 30's and all deeply uninterested in my memories!

So...I'm not sure about your reunion proposal, John.  Someone once said that you cannot go back so perhaps we should leave it at that!

There is one thing that I would like to do however. That is to quietly wander around the school on my own to see if I bump into any of those ghosts that still come to me from time to time.

Hi Martyn - just seen your reply - lots of sound sense in what you say!  But I think Vic's site is brilliant - I have just added a link to it in Wikipedia.
