Reunion for Class of 68 (Pt 2) July 2019

Martin Jones writes

"We held our reunion (pt 2) yesterday at the Zedel in Central London. I am attaching a photo which I hope you can access. Seven of us this time - left to right in the photo, Neville Crofts, George Rattray, Peter Dewey, Myself, Mike Finnis (who was unable to attend the previous reunion), Terry Smith and Philip Odell. By a strange coincidence, four of us - Pete, Mike, Philip and I - also attended the Paris trip in 1965 with GP and AP and there is a b & w photo on Fas et Patria (Ed's note- see below) of us in full school uniform looking  extremely bored (which we were) in the heat at Fontainebleau. Perhaps it might be possible to publish this as well as my photo from 54 years later. The London underground reminded me of Fontainebleau! 

The big 7-0 next, will it be the Zedel Pt 3?  "

In the 1968 photo ( bottom ) L to R Dave Franks (standing), Pete Dewey, Adrian Fothergill (fair hair), me, Miles Chapman, Philip Odell and Mike Finnis. Those also in the 2019 photo at the Zedel are Pete, Philip, Mike and myself. Not bad going after a gap of 54 years!
