Peter Fowler writes: "Chris Stott and Rod Addington were both killed in car accidents, Addington in France and Chris in North London. They were both great guys and I've always missed them."
Philip Levi writes: "At age 15, I was in the Fourth Form. I joined the School in September 1959 and the following Summer I was scorer for the 1960 Cricket 3rd XI. The Scout badge on my lapel is proof of the fact that the picture was taken after my Scout investiture which was on Friday, 1 July 1960. I still have my 1960 MCC Diary - I was mad on cricket before I was persuaded by my friends at School to join the Scouts and had previously been scorer for the 1st XI of my previous School, Westcliff High School for Boys, and for Hadleigh and Thundersley Cricket Club in Essex. Most if not all of these boys were in the 5th form - a year older than me - and I only remember now Barry Williams whom I knew through the Pioneer Senior Scouts.
