    As always the last Saturday in June Old Cottonians in the United Kingdom celebrates to share an inherited love of our dear Alma Mater.
    Assembled at our favourite – The Bombay Brasserie we out-numbered last years attendance – arranged by Committee a Stirling vibrant Luncheon with re-ordered interest from younger OCs as we move forward assuring elder members OCA(UK) will carry our chapter onward. SHABASH!
    The tribute continues to have had in our midst THREE prominent Board of School Governors 2 from India – veritable Deep C Annand, ‘Dimpy’ Anil Mehera looking after finance & our roving ambassador Gay Niblett from Mallorca. Their stirring speeches gave us encouragement to learn dear Patina still stands 2nd among India’s elite Schools. KEEP IT UP.
    Whatever others may say about Doon School – BCS will always be higher up on a Simla Hill!
    Even our late arrival caused by the recent heatwave Railway signal failure I cannot tell you my pleasure to be seated at the table of our two oldest members attending – Lance Jones (94) & Allan Bapty (91) we tucked into the delicious Indian Khanna.
    I find it difficult in words to express my heartfelt emotions to be among my beloved BCS family with all their guests – culminating as the School Song was sung with a loud crescendo.
    Another memorable Reunion until we meet again.
    Yours fraternally,
    Peter Stringer Lefroy 1943-47
