Canada OCs get together

The following message is from Jerry Godinho, President of OCA Canada-

“17 OC’s along with their spouses and friends from Greater Toronto Area and Michigan met on Sunday, June 3rd at Bombay Palace.

John McLauglin who is 85 drove 6 hrs from Flint Michigan, dressed in full regalia and drove back after lunch. It was good to see John’s picture in Ruskin Bond’s book.

Pratap Grewal shared about his life and how paralysis impacted him. He shared how he has overcome so many physical challenges in life. John and Pratap represent the true BCS spirit.

It was good to see Tom, Satinder and Ravdeep after a decade.

Akshay Bansal is the newest member as he is completing his MBA at York.

Dear OCs,

It gives me an immense pleasure to state hereby that in pursuit of our constant endeavour to establish more elaborately a bond of union among the Old boys of BCS, I hereby officially announce the Launch of a Mobile App ‘OCA’ for our fraternity all across the world. It is available on both IOS & Android Platforms on Apple & Google stores.

I would also take this opportunity to thank the entire ‘Batch of 1983’ to provide the necessary sponsorship for the said initiative of OCA India. OCs Rajesh Bhalla & Mohnish Sharma of 1983 batch deserve a special mention here.

OCA India would also be grateful to its own Secretary Ashwani Singh Virk, for taking up the challenge of developing the said Project and without whose selfless service this Application would not have been made possible.

Annual ‘at-home’ event / Barford Warwickshire

Saturday 29 April 9 OCs with some wives gathered at Barford Warwickshire – this is an annual ‘at-home’ event hosted by Sheila, wife of late Bobby Reed (R 41-46) – continues to his memory.
We believe this simple way to refresh our fraternal acquaintance and rekindle fond memories – this practice helps restore the Spirit of BCS.

R to L School Captain 1954 Daljit Singh Jaijee (R 47-54) John Phillips (C 39-45) Gay Niblett (R 40-47) Joginder Chahal (c 44-50) our oldest member 93 Lance Jones (L 35-39)
Stringer ii (Lefroy 43-47) Peter Johans (I 44-48) Raj Lamba (L 49-59) Bambi SK Majumdar (53 – 59).

We enjoyed a dining-room full lunch after drinks & starters (samosas) in the vine covered conservatory where the girls dined – and thank you Sheila & daughter Jancis for your kind warm hospitality.

The afternoon is consigned to another nostalgic memory of innocent schoolboy camaraderie as count down the days for the 24 June OCA (UK) Reunion.

Fond regards
Peter Stringer ii (Lefroy)
