Congratulations Varun Gaur for GALLANTRY

71st REPUBLIC DAY of INDIA

Arun Gaur 2005 batch (10th) is being awarded the Sena Medal bar for [the second time!] gallantry ops on the Kashmir valley – on the 26th of January 2020 by the President of India. It’s a rare honour as bar in military terms means he has received the same award before.

Message from Richard [Dick] D’Abreu

Great to be still around at the age of 93!
It is also so good of the information and news I receive of the old School. I find it a privilege to be among the OC’s of the great BCS . Jim Lee and Peter Maidment for keeping in touch on Skype. We may be getting a bit forgetful from time to time, however we enjoy laughing together at the good times.. Thanks for keeping me in the OC’s membership. 
Best to all of you all for keeping up good times.
Sincerely,
Dick D’Abreu  [1936-46 Curzon]
