Fifty years since they last rowed together, members of the 1969 1st VIII came together at Henley Royal Regatta on Wednesday 3rd July.  On a gloriously sunny day, six members of the crew, Brian Cawley (60-69), Rex Elliott (58-69), Charles Frost (65-69), John Jennings (58-69), Peter Beaumont (64-69) and John Gray (64-69) met at the OB and School Drinks Reception in Butler’s Field and enjoyed a glass or two of Pimms.  They then went on to meet and have their photographs taken with the 1st VIII crew in front of the Gloriana, the Queen’s Rowbarge.  Before relaxing to watch an afternoon of rowing, the crew enjoyed lunch in the Stewards’ Enclosure.  A wonderful day was had by all.
