The final page of Robert Clyde's new batch of photos.

It was one of those amazing coincidences : Bob just happened to be visiting the parish church at Bishop's Waltham
in May (2005) with his wife, Jess, when he stumbled across a Pelicans' reunion that was taking place that weekend.

Since then, he has also met up with three contemporaries from his Priory days—Leslie Croughan, Chas Robinson and
Pat Menzies
—at another reunion in Preston which was organised months before.


And here we are, with a further 56 photos for our website, all because Bob decided to pay a nostalgic visit to what was once
The Priory.

SINCERE THANKS FROM US ALL, BOB

At the back you can just make out the Gym, so the coach is parked in the quad, facing the Burma Road. This might be a Southdown coach taking everyone home for the vacation, or an away match (at de Montfort's ?) for the First Eleven.

YOU might be able to affirm this guesswork AND spot some of the faces.
Any offers ?
