Salesian Past Pupils UK Guestbook

Thanks to Mike Ellwood for the namecheck. I too was at Cowley from 1961-68 and saw Paul Humphrey' post which spurred me on to make contact. Having found Mike on Friends Reunited, I found Paul on LinkedIn and I'm pleased to say we three are in email contact and looking to organise a meeting. Of course there are many more of our contemporaries of whom I know nothing. What happened to Andrew Painter, Peter Exley, Paul Badcock, Bernard Duddy, Brian Quarterman, Tony Carmody,Jimmy Foster,Waclaw Slezak, Tony Solomon, Tony Cronin, Adam Heller, Steve Carter, et al? Any indication? You can find me on Gmail where my handle is 'chrisrtv'.

My time at Cowley (1946-1948 ) were interesting .I remember Canon Byrne , Fr.Bleach, Killer Jennings ,Br. "Bogey" Hogan , Br John Collins,Jakey Boylan, and was pleased to see an old classmate, Wolfe (Lupi) on your site. I now live in Switzerland,and I still visit London 4 to 5 times a year. Two yearsago , I looked up the old School, on arriving ,it looked much smaller than I remembered (as always , with such visits to the past), The Chapel was a private residence, and what was left of the buildings ,a hostel.

Hello,

I was at the Salesian College Cowley,Oxford from September 1961 to July 1968.

I was alerted to this website by Chris Rogers (via Friends Reunited). We were both contemporaries of Paul Humphreys, who posted here in Jan. 2013 (I think). I would be very happy to hear from Paul, and anyone else from that era.

I can be contacted at: mwe [at] fastmail.co.uk

(remove blanks and replace [at] with the usual).

Best wishes,
Mike Ellwood

I was a boarder at Thornleigh from 1950 to 1954.After the initial shock of leaving home I settled down fairly well.Didn't do very well in education, but was given an enduring faith. Left after 4 Gamma to do my GCEs at a local technical college. Worked in machine tool engineering.

I loved Fr McGovern and played the flute in the orchestra. Happy days!

Dear Fellow Guests,

I was at Cowley up until 1958 and my last form was 4B (i think). I would love to hear from anyone who was at the school around that time.

It's so good that people are able to get in touch through initiatives like this, although many of us maybe a bit too old to bother?

Although it was so many years ago, some things i remember as if yesterday. Fr Crummey (English), Fr (Killer) Jennings (Boxing), Bro Broder(Science), Fr McTague (Latin), Fr Power (French), Fr (Dizzey) Doyle (Head Master), Fr Dr Archer (Head of 6th form) Fr Maguire (?) (Music). (Excuse spellings).

Best regards

Jerry :)
