Wessex Re-Union 2013
The Scottish Group
Our Scottish group met for lunch today. I have to tell you that they are a
very keen and active group. We have about 6 regulars from the 50s, rather
more from the 60s and one delightful 92 year -old who was at Guys during the
war plus some more immobile members who still want to keep in touch - which
was why we reccomended that they look at the website. several are married to
Guys docs and keep up with reunions etc.
We were all rather disappointed at the lack of contributions to the League
website and have got carried away to contribute. We have appointed Margaret
Hobbs who actually teaches IT as our website contributor and started sharing
ideas about what to do. We know about the active groups like London,
Cambridge and Norfolk but I think the group want to show that we are here
and make links with other groups
One thing which was suggested and eagerly taken up was organising a lunch
like the one at the house of Lords next year - esp. as next year is the
Empire Games in Glasgow, the Open and one otr two other things. Do you think
people would come north for something like this?Most probably to Edinburgh.
We thought we should check with you before we sent our first offering to the
website and ask for some advice about inviting people to Edinburgh. This why
I am contacting you rather than than Andie - but have copied to her
September 1973 Set 40th Anniversary Reunion

October 1962 set 50th reunion
At midday on October 10th 2012 , thirty seven members of the October 1962 set met in the Robens Suite at Guy's to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the day we started at Holmesdale on October 10th 1962.
We had a wonderful afternoon together, enjoying a nice lunch, lots of chat, a visit to the Gordon museum or a tour of the hospital followed by afternoon tea, before we all said our farewells and departed.
People had come from Canada, Bermuda, USA, Scotland, Wales, Spain, Cornwall, Northumberland and throughout the counties of England.
During the year I had collated biographies and up to date photos along with original photos taken at PTS and distributed the completed document to everyone so that we didn't feel like strangers on the day. E mail was wonderful for keeping in touch and everyone was very enthusiastic throughout.
The friendships we made all those years ago were very special and have stood the test of time and the reunion was an opportunity to celebrate this.
Roll on our 60th!
January 1971 set re-union
On 2nd July, 27 members of the January ' 71 set held their 40 year
reunion. This was an impressive total to gather together with friends
gathering from all over the UK and Ireland, to say nothing of Bermuda,
Texas, Australia and Switzerland. According to our ace organiser Mary
Davies ( nee Cripps ), 80 started in the set, 60 qualified and so we
achieved almost half; several people were unable to attend because
they were on holiday.
We ate a wonderful commerative cake ( photo sent separately ) and had
lots of other photos. The decibel levels were amazing; a good thing
that we met at lunchtime !!
We are all very much looking forward to our 45 year reunion in five
years time, when we hope that several more of our original set will be
able to come along.
Several local re-unions have already been established, including Cambridge, Norfolk, Wessex, the West Country and Thames Valley. These enable members to get together locally without having to travel long distances.
Normally they are lunchtime events with good food, lots of chat, reminiscing and sometimes a speaker.
If you are interested in forming a new local group please email me the details on GHNL10@btinternet.com and I will add it to the webpage
