Bro. Duignan has not been well. He has been in hospital for health tests. We wish him well.

We have been advised that Stephen Risi has a copy of the Pick-up-a-penguin advert run on the television in the late 60’s. For those that do not remember, a team of penguins (from the Zoo) were filmed leaving the pavilion to play a match on the front field. The opponents consisted a team of Scotus Pupils. The advert ran for some time and was very successful. If anyone is interested in a copy, contact the Editor, and arrangements will try to be made.

Norman Kelly advises that he has found a copy of the recording of “ The Land of Green Ginger ” and will try to make a copy. Again, if anyone is interested contact the editor.

Ronald Risi advises that he still has the Table Tennis bat he won for 2 nd place in the Shot Putt at the school sports. Must be an antique.

We Recently met John Bacigalupo and Gordon McCready . Gordon, who lives in Paris has been seriously ill recently. He is well on the road to recovery, looking very fit, and is recommencing his profession as a professional golf player. He is rejoining the Tartan Tour and the European Seniors tour. If you have the chance to see him play, introduce yourself—but not during his backswing or shot play.

Another visitor to Edinburgh recently was Dermod O’Malley , together with his wife. A small reunion took place in Leith. Those attending were Lindsay Wilson , John Bacigalupo, William Parry, Jack Kerr, Andrew Lindsay, Tom Rooney. Photos of the reunion will appear on the web page shortly.

Maurice Dougan advises that all Scotian magazines are now on the web, along with a large number of photos, which need identification. If you can help, e-mail Maurice, quoting Picture Number, Name of person in photo, and position in Photo. This will help for posterity
