Welcome back with the superb new web site.
I am particularly impressed with the introduction, graphics and the general
layout. I am still very involved in the music world. It is a great pleasure
for me to be playing piano a lot more now, particularly accompanying a
delightful young lady singer, both in jazz and classical styles. I play
trombone with two wind bands, and occasionally with a brass group. Besides
all this, have still got the librarians job with one band, (although I
am trying to give it away to someone else), as usual no takers!
This one taken in our 'barrack room', Xmas 1950 with friends and
families.I have forgotten the names, sorry!
This photo is of one of the 'house' basket ball teams, with
the shield we won, circa. 1951/1952, taken in East Barracks.
I can't remember any of the names of the 'houses'. Ernie Ward
is on front row (far right looking at photo, and myself front
row (far left).
