Welcome to the fourteenth edition of The Journal.


Our 50th year since Pass Out. It will be quite a do at Cirencester in July; I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.

Here are some notices with a reunion flavour:

There can be few [or none] of the original entry badges around but replacement badges are available from Tony Birchenough. I have one and it is pretty good. Tony is also having a polo shirt and sweatshirt produced with the entry badge, and will now have samples and prices available. Initially the polo shirt will be a similar blue to that on the badge and the sweatshirt in navy blue, but he says he is open to suggestions for alternative colours if warranted. [Tony can be contacted at]

John (Tubs/Rolo) Taylor sends the following;

I am considering having a round of golf prior to the get together at the RAC next July. I would expect to start around 12 noon on a course somewhere near to the RAC so that I could get back to the RAC well in time for the 'do' at 18.30 hours. If anyone would like to join me please drop an email or something and I will try to get it organised. Home tel.01709 872397 Email johntaylor81 (at)

Were you in the same room as Ned Kelly in our first term at Halton? Ned is hoping someone has a copy of the room photo. He thinks he was in Block 2 Room 3. Contact Ned at
