On Sunday 12th July 2009 We were able to get a group together at the Queens Head Pub just east of Guildford in Surrey.

I had wanted it to be a surprise for Pat, but he had already seen the details on the Pelicans website - this was no problem and it meant that he was able to meet some of our peers for the first time in fifty years. We were joined by John Scully, Owen Gormley, Maurice Billingsley, John Joyce, Pat McHale, Mike Byrne and myself. It was extremely lively and most enjoyable for all concerned.

The same evening as the Queens Head get-together John Strain and his wife Margaret visited our home and we enjoyed a little refreshment in our garden for a couple of hours. They had spent two weeks in Antigua to celebrate John's 60th birthday and they had asked me if we could rendezvous with us while Pat was living with us. Another very enjoyable get together!

The party will include 8 Pelicans plus wives and partners :

We hope to meet at the Queens head at East Clandon - east of Guildford at 13.30!  The pub is subject to confirmation! "
