fittingly, shows Geoff Dixon Chairing a debate in
the School Library. It was 1962 (possibly
1961). I was, at that time, a post graduate
student at Kings College London and had, that
year (1961 or 62) been a finalist in the Observer
Mace National Student Debating Competition.
When Geoff Dixon heard he invited me, and
others, back to School and organised the
debate. Mr Dixon is standing, to
his immediate left is Alun Roberts who left a
year ahead of me (1956). I am to Alun's
right. The person to the left of Geoff
Dixon is someone I do not remember and to his
left is, I think, Ian Fell. I do not
recall the Motion, or the outcome!!
photo is the Cricket First XI in in 1954 or 55. The team
Manager was Mr "Spud" Heywood.
The captain, third from left front row, was
Norman Bridge, an excellent batsman. To his
left is Norman (?) a mean swing
bowler. To his left is (?) Davies, a
tearaway bowler. I am third from Mr
Heywood, back row. On the left end of the
back row is (?) Gray, the team scorer.
Other faces have no immediate memory response ( a
commonplace occurrence these days). Hopefully
someone can fill in the missing names.
