The Royal Air Force Club in Piccadilly, London is becoming the “home” of Old Cambrian Society reunions/annual dinners in the U.K, and the 72 “old boys” and their guest enjoyed a fabulous evening on Friday 3rd April 2009, again hosted by RAF Club member Alan Murdoch (Rhodes 1945-50).

With numbers down on the usual 100+ at this event, this is almost certainly due to the effects of the worldwide credit crunch which prevented many from travelling from overseas for the premier OCS function of the year.

The Secretary, Steve Le Feuvre (Clive 1970-5), acted as Master of Ceremonies for the evening, which took on the usual relaxed and informal atmosphere that is now a major attraction for those who regularly attend. As usual, there were copious amounts of reminiscing taking place, and reports of some who met up at the dinner after 55 years of not being in contact having been great pals at school, and being in the same house. That is what this event is all about, merely facilitating people getting together and spending 5 quality hours, remembering the good days of their youth in Kenya.

Alan Murdoch then thanked Steve Le Feuvre for all his work for the Old Cambrian Society, continuing to develop and maintain the superb web site, and also for organising another fabulous evening, yet again ably assisted on the night by his wife, Suzanne.

For any who attended, please do send scans of your photos to the Webmaster, so that they can be added to this page.
