REUNION IN SCOTLAND
October 2008
in the St Boswell's area



We are very grateful to Gerard Lenaghan (St Boswell's,1963) who became our adopted 'stills photographer' for the day.
He subsequently handed over a collection of nearly 50 photos?f superb quality. A large selection of these are displayed
on this and the Pages that follow. (Some of the views can be seen elsewhere on the site).

The reunion Mass was held in what was once the Chapel at St Columba's, celebrated by Fr George Smith M. Afr (WF)
and a sizeable group of 'Pelicans' and wives. To the left you can see Mike and Kay Mearns. Behind Kay is Eric Creaney.
To his left are John and Sylvia Dawson.

The Conference Room, once the Chapel at St Boswell's.

(I have never managed to get the spirit level to work correctly on photos of the Chapel.
The results are ALWAYS lopsided, however much I try.
Spirit level malfuntioning on once-hallowed land? Spooky, eh?)

Chris and Josie Benton (who organised the reunion) no doubt wondering whether to just sell up and move to this beautiful area.
