The Journal of the 81st Entry

Welcome to the sixteenth edition of The Journal.

Our esteemed WebMaster has written an excellent account on the '50 Years since Pass Out' reunion, held at the Royal Agricultural College Cirencester, so I will confine myself to a one-word description of the event….. Superb!

Those at the reunion may have seen the handout/flyer that had been left on each of the tables. It was meant to stimulate articles from more of the membership; at present a scant few write most of the articles. Short (aprox 600-1500 words) articles, on any subject, would be appreciated from a wider cross section of the entry. I would also like to stimulate some discussions as per The Haltonian Magazine. Here are a few hares to get you going:

What was the reason behind the break up of the entry system in January 1956?

Did Slim Turner have occult powers?

Who won the Inter Wing Ballistic Missile race?

What does our Entry Latin motto really mean?

Has any one photographs of 3 Wing Pipe Band, taken during our time at Halton? Tony Taylor got to be Drum Major of the Band and would dearly like to have a memory of those times. Send any to me and I will pass on a copy of them to Tony. My e mail is now (where # = @)
