Editor’s Note

A very warm welcome to our new President. He is a chap I have known all my life and it is rumoured that if cut in half not only would he bleed blue and gold but you would find the letters WHITGIFT stamped right through him in his favourite colours of azure, argent, sable and or.

He tells me he is looking forward to his year in office and supporting all the Association’s Clubs and Societies as much as possible and that his main Annual Dinner on Friday 24th May will be one of much OW fellowship and attended by as many members as possible back in Big School where it all began.

Congratulations to Rory Burns who not only captained Surrey CCC to the county championship title but enjoyed a successful tour with England to Sri Lanka. Also to Elliot Daly, the current Wasps captain, on his autumn rugby internationals with England, especially his spectacular try against Australia and to Sven Kerneis (2010-15) on his dark Rugby Blue even if it was for only five minutes. Congratulations too to Brigadier Neil Sexton 1978-85 on his promotion to Major-General.

Richard Blundell OW (1956-63)
