We have recently had contact from Eleanor Oldham, Arthur’s younger daughter. She has asked for a copy of “The Land of Green Ginger”, and we are happy to comply. We have asked if she knows of any school memorabilia that was kept by the family. She has copied in our request to her brothers, and will ask Arthur’s widow, Annie, if she has any. More information will be imparted soon.

The School Reunion took place on Friday 2nd October, and Bro. Duignan was guest of Honour. He arrived on Wednesday, and your editor put him up, and visited, with Bro Duignan, Paul DiRollo, John Bacigalupo. Tony Thain, Bert D’Agostino, Peter & Paul Cassidy. He had lunch at Bert’s new restaurant and hotel, The Castle Hotel, Dirleton. He has just started a sea food restaurant within the premises, and the menu and food were very good. We would recommend it for dinner, or lunch. Please tell Bert when you get there you were at school. Watch the smile light up his face. He also had lunch at Peter Cassidy’s Hotel in Peebles, The County, in the High Street. He also is delighted to see old boys of the school.

The following attended the reunion:- Bro Duignan; Lindsay Wilson; John Bacigalupo; Jimmy Murdoch; George Powell; Adrian McDonald; Charles Redmond; Charles Packham; Maxim Alexander; Brendan McCann; Mike Deery; Jack Kerr; John Lehany; Tony Thain; Tom McEwan; Ken Somerville;
