It is normally at this time and place in the newsletter, that we announce deaths. Well, today we have a Lazarus moment. We have been advised that reports of Malcolm James Croan’s death have been greatly exaggerated, and he is alive and well, and has been living in Canada for over 25 years..
New e-mail contacts:- Malcolm James Croan, in Canada. He tells us he was expelled for not wearing his cap. Many more suffered the same, or similar fates.
Change of e-mail address:- Allan Ashton;
Lost contact:- Ronnie Paul Risi; Max Anderson;
F P contacts:- Canon Alan Findley, in Bristol, who is a cousin of John and Graham McKay. He suggests if you are in the Bristol area to look him up. He is the priest with the biggest smile, as he supports Birmingham city. Sandy Alexander wrote about his birthday:-
I will celebrate it in Shanghai where I am visiting some friends.
We have been advised that Barry Wilson has now retired as Director General for Personnel at the European Parliament in Brussels. If anyone has a forwarding address, could they send it on to us.
We have found out that some of our FPs are authors. Malcolm James Croan has written three books,” A Glimpse at the Past”, “Princess Sheba”, and his latest “Right Hand up to God”. He says that the second book is a good read for grandchildren. Read about him on the Internet under his name.
Randy Schlichting, our Baptist Minister, who resides in Georgia, USA, has written a book, “Minority Rules”, in which he says the following:-
In the unusual event that any FPs would want to purchase a copy of my book, Minority Rules, I now have a way to do that. I have set up a blogsite and paypal. It should work for international. If they do decide to do it, have them email me and I will follow it up to make sure it goes out.
We have posted on our school web site, and on Facebook, a video of a procession at St Margaret’s Convent in 1966/1967, sent in by Laurence Cecchini. We are assured that Bro Engel is on the video, as are Paul Capaldi and Eric Gregor to name but two. If you are on the video, please let us know.
It is with great sadness that we all read, just over two weeks ago, of the firms of Globespan and Flyglobespan having to cease trading, and being liquidated. It is the editorials opinion that all of our FPs were immensely proud to be associated with Tom Dalrymple’s travel business, rising from a small travel agency in the 1960s through its expansion to the biggest airline in Scotland. As we go to press there are many questions seeking answers, and we know that Tom is hurting. We wish him well in the future, whether that will be another business, or a long happy retirement. We will all miss his aircraft. There will not be many who have not flown with his planes to many destinations from Edinburgh. It was almost like a local taxi service to holiday destinations.
