Hi Paddy, Trust you are well. Hope you had a fantastic Birthday on the 16th July.
Happy birthday Hugh. Long time since we scraped through FQ! I thought that you had gone to Australia?
Many Happy Belated Birthday Wishes Guy, Trust you had a super day and many more! Regards Des
Hi Stan, Happy Belated Birthday Wishes for yesterday, trust you had a great day.
I was terribly upset ot learn of Mervyn's passing - Yes Jeff, "Gilly" Gans as he was known to all of us at Prep and DHS. I was in contact with Mervyn again in recent years when he introduced me to Francesco Ciaghi, who had cycled solo from Cape Town to Italy via Israel. Frncesco was particularly fond of Mervyn and admired him as a cycliing enthusiast with grit and tenancity in the face of his illness. I remember Mervyn as quiet, almost retiring in his manner, very gentle, pensive. Although we had not seen each other (except via Facebook) for more than 40 years, I remembered him and his sister Sharon, fondly from school days.
Sending love and healing thoughts to the family.
Oh wow: I knew he was ill, but did not know it had moved so quickly. I knew Andy (and his brother Stuart) from when they first arrived in Durban from SWA and went to Prep. We had correspnded quite regularly on FB and I was intrigued with his passion for Scotland and his heritage. Rest in Peace buddy...condolences to all the family.

Happy birthday John. Have a good one!
Have a great day on Friday Johnny! Kindest regards, Stan
Ian Tayfield kindly sent me this information:
"I only recently became aware that Peter passed away during 2020. He had been living in Brisbane Australia for quite some years. I believe his passing was a result of brain cancer. Regards all. Ian."
Thanks John. I will forward your lovely tribute on to Les' wife Rose
