We both went to Ganges from Exmouth so hence a couple of pre-war post cards also attached.
Great post! And thanks for the 1949 pic of the prizes etc... my dorm mates and friends Alex Loveday, and Peter Lightbody both mentioned. As I vividly recall, I was still struggling to come to terms with the regime and new life style, so no prizes for me that year.

Jack Wesson was my pal - he went into BP. Alex Loveday was accepted by Hogarths of all companies, and I heard later he had left them in Australia. As a top student and all rounder, it was a mismatch for his talents.

There was Weston, later i/c 11 Dorm. He went to the Bank Line, and had the misfortune to fall overboard and then to be luckily picked up. I don't know the ship, but he joined us on the Inchanga for a positioning leg on the way back home and told this story.

Reeve and Manning I also remember.

Would dearly love to see the 1950 and 51 programmes!

Thanks for posting
