OR Reunion – 25 Year Group Leavers of 1992 – 25 Year Reunion 15th July 2017

On Saturday 15th July 17 ORs, who left 25 years ago in 1992, met at the Bathurst Arms. We had to choose this date instead of the official OR day as several people were in the UK from abroad. Julian Madeley from Thailand, Sarah Baker (née Langley) from Australia and Linda Eklof from Finland. Many more sent apologies, amongst them Graham Lawton on a posting with the Army in Sudan, James Grafton and Henry Pugh in the States, Sarah Pike (née Thayne) in Australia, Clair Watson in UAE and Hamish Auld leading a D of E Expedition of his own this time. We enjoyed a buffet lunch and drinks to the tune of 1990’s hits of our day. Whilst smaller groups have kept in touch over the years this was the first time we had attempted a whole year Reunion. It was amazing how easy it was to pick up with each other again and fill in on the intervening years. After lunch, we took a wander along the River Churn to Rendcomb and although the College was preparing for a private function that evening no one seemed to mind us wandering about down memory lane and back via the Wildie. The Stage saw re-enactments of fights long ago. In the Church, accompanied by Paul Irving and Paul Sumsion, both now Vicars, we thought of Reverend Sudbury and those Sunday services, and also of those no longer with us, Graham Bennett (1974-1995) in particular. Some of us later went on to Cheltenham to continue the evening and all left with the promise to not leave it quite so long next time.
