Reunion of the 1955 School 1st XV

12/01/2016

On Saturday 12 December eight of the 11 surviving members of the St Paul’s 1st XV of 1955 met for a reunion luncheon at the School, hosted by OP Club Manager, Ceri Jones. After enjoying a wonderful lunch we watched the School play Felsted, who we also played against in 1955, beating them 22-9. On this occasion the School won 29-24. 

After the game the High Master and the School XV joined us for tea. We chatted for quite a time with our interesting and attentive hosts. As one of our group remarked, it is sobering to think that, if our predecessors had done the same when we were in the XV, it would have been the 1895 team who would have been celebrating their 60th anniversary. No doubt the conversation would have included the events in the First Boer War!!
