The Association's page for New Photographs and Special Items

This page is intended, initially, to provide a central location for the Association's photograph archive - the pictorial record of the various doings of the members, from the formal (the Annual Dinner) to the calamitous (the 2010 Bowls tournament) and all places in between. All contributions are welcome, provided there is some connection (however tenuous) with the PGSA.

News Items

The Annual Dinner 2014 took place at the Samlesbury Hotel - the same venue as in recent years (once known as the "Five-barred Gate", and more recently as The Swallow). The guest speaker was Bob Reeves, a former pupil of the School and currently President of the English RFU. The usual splendid evening was enjoyed by all.

The 2014 visit to Preston North End took place on 18th February, 4 days after the death of Sir Tom Finney, at the age of 91. The scarves, shirts and other items are a tribute to this modest, unassuming gentleman who was also the best player ever to adorn PNE and England shirts. Pix below.


Ron Challen, an Old Boy of the School, played a significant part in the activities at Bletchley Park during WWII. With the help of a friend he recorded his memoirs electronically and these have now been issued on a set of 4 DVDs. More information about these, and an order form, can be seen here.

Notes:

(1) The original photographs have been exposed at differing definitions. High-definition pictures make large files, which eat up storage space and require long down-load times. Large files (for example 3456px by 2304px) have been/will be digitally copied and reduced to an optimum size of 800px by 600px as a compromise between speed and file size. The original files are/will be unaffected. (Some diminution in the quality of the image occurs - this is not the fault of the photographer!).

(2) You can add a comment to a photograph by using your Flickr or Google account (the pix are held on Google from MB's 2011 Roebuck pix onward). To open an account you only need your email address and a password of your own choosing - and IT'S FREE.

(3) If you have photographs or other graphics which you wish to share with the members, please email them to the webmaster, preferably in *.png or *.jpg format. Items submitted in other formats may have to be re-formatted before being put on the page.

(4) The photographs shown here are of recent events. From time to time albums will be transferred to the main photographic archive.
