    I would like to say “hello” to Brian Partridge and Peter Perry.Early 1950.s I just happen to
    Open the cite of Foster,s Grammar and Lord Digby Grammar school for girls when I noted
    Your name Brian. Please text me. Arnold.

      Arnold. I saw your entry in Spring 2013 magazine. i believe that I invited you to my home to see the coronation of the Queen on TV. I remember your name as Rakowski. I also met Peter Perry in NZ and when he lived again in Sherborne, but he’s now back in NZ. Hoping this reply enables further contact.

    I am somewhat surprised that we have gaps in the years published of the magazine. The school library had bound copies of them all. I wonder where they went along with all the other books. I dread to think. I remember we had all of MacMillan’s autobiography [5 or 6 volumes] which no one ever read and a wonderful French/English slang dictionary full of smut [in the reference section, of course] which was used almost daily.
    Somewhere I have all the Fosterians from 1971 so will start hunting.

    The bound copies are still about but they’re hard to scan in without damaging the binding. I have inquired about getting them scanned professionally which would not damage them but it’s very expensive. Last quote I got was about £600!
