Symondian Magazine

Bernard Webber recently made reference to 'The Symondian' Magazine ... I wonder if anyone out there has a copy (or a copy of a copy), that records my 'leaving' in 1950 ... the entry would have been short, I am sure, because I did not aspire in anything of note ( except playing 'fives' when I should have been doing 'Classics' in the Library) ... the entry probably would have just said :-
Douglas Clews ... "September 1944 til July 1950 - enough said" !!! ...
 
SERIOUSLY, if anyone has such copy, I would be VERY grateful ... I had a copy, but when my Parents came to Oz to join me and my Family in 1968, they left it behind !!! ...
 
Thanks in anticipation ...

The Duke of Edinburgh's Visit

One of the highlights of my First Year was the day the Duke of Edinburgh dropped by for a visit. Some of my memories were jogged recently when I was browsing through the 1964-1965 edition of The Symondian magazine, and came across an account of that day written by "R.D.W.". So why am I posting this message? Well, here's the closing sentence at the end of the account - "This memorable occasion was marked by beautiful weather, which assisted the work of King and Bailey who made a cine film of the visit". OK, King and Bailey - please step forward - I'd love to see this film - if anyone out there has any knowledge of it, please get in touch!
Thank you, and Hello to all Old Symondians out there!
