The Priory 1955, Brother Modeste
Michael Goodstadt recalls : " Twice a day, from 1955 until the day
he died in 1966, I re-stocked brother Modeste's coal scuttle for the
stove that he had in his room."

(But he never did find Brother Modeste's secret recipe for beer made purely from water)

The Priory 1955

Nick Muller and Anthony O'Gorman
Was this at Galley Down ? Was it "Philosopher's week ?

Nick Muller was extremely strong. I could hardly lift those bales
but Nick and the rest of the world just seemed to throw them about.

(?)
Fr Dickson (right) moving forward to talk to the Superior General and Fr Jack Maguire (Provincial)

Was this the Gym ? The picture is vaguely familiar. (Jack and the Beanstalk ?)

The Priory 1956 (?)
A performance of the pantomime in the recreation hall for the visit of the
Superior General. Graham Hoxley was Mother Something or Other,
thinks Michael Widow Twankee, perhaps ?

Does anybody remember this pantomime ? Was this the one which
featured the song "Abdul the Bubul The Mayor
and that awful joke about "What goes up when the rain comes down?"
(The price of umbrellas, in case you've forgotten . . . )

Fr Alan Thompson worked really hard at these
events, which we all enjoyed tremendously.
