It is with a great deal of sadness that we announce the death of Peter Yeo. He was one of the original pupils at the school, and one who had been in your editor’s class throughout his school life. Our sympathies go out to his family.
From time to time we hear of deaths of FPs that have taken place some time ago. Recently we learnt of the death, some 10 years ago, of Cary Anderson.
It appears that an entry on our web page was incorrect. We are happy to report that Sam Coward is alive and kicking, and enjoying life to the full. The mistake arose because of the listing of Sam’s father’s death. He had the same first name.
We have made e-mail contact with:- Robin Pilkington, in London; Chris Bain, who seems to have contacts for David & John Bain, Michael Brand and Tony Rostant, Eric Gallo,in Italy, Nick Garry ( who has promised some photos),Niall Anthony Kenny, Richard Thomson, in Edinburgh, and Greg Twiss
E-mail changes:- Jim McCabe; Edward Merard;Father Paul Capaldi; Norman Kelly;
It seems that an interesting debate about the school, and its teaching practices, has started in the guestbook on our web site. Feel free to join in, and contribute.
Raymond Ross mentioned his show in the Festival, unfortunately too late for last month’s newsletter.
Mike Maran is doing some charitable Vespa ride. More information can be obtained at :- www.ccccc.uk.com
There is also an article, published in the Scotsman, on Mike Maran, now on the Scotus newspaper article site.
Father Henry McLaughlin is back in Edinburgh, and can be contacted at Gillies College.
Last chance Saloon. This will be the last notification for the next reunion on Friday 2 October 2009. (How many noticed the deliberate error last month?), at the Corn Exchange, Chesser Avenue Edinburgh at 7.30pm. Please make every effort to come along, and try to guess who some attendees are. Cost for the evening £10. Please pay Lindsay Wilson on the night.
We have been contacted by two FPs who are intending to come to the reunion, and are travelling from the South of England, Jimmy Murdoch and Jackie Broadley. Jackie, in particular, has asked that as many FPs as possible who knew him at school should attend and make his journey worthwhile. As he is older than the Editor, it would be nice to make an older man’s dreams come true. So, if you can, come along, and see if you can recognise both of them.
On Sunday, while your scribe was acting as a High Constable of the City of Edinburgh, guarding the Lord Provost at the Festival Mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral, he met Mike Peterson, one of the Councils employees, and Brian T. ( Bunny ) Conlon, in the congregation. Your editor was royally entertained at a show in the Festival at The Vin Caffe, Multrees Walk Edinburgh. Philip Contini entertained by singing a selection of Neapolitan songs, and did it very well indeed. Both that show, and his show at Valvona & Crolla, singing Dean Martin songs were both sell outs during the Festival run.
