    Nice one Kevin:   

* A note about Pietro (Pedro). He turned up in the first year already about 5' 10", thick-set and hairy and was the only first-year given permission to wear long trousers!   He was the Under-11 Rugby XV's secret weapon - lock forward, of course - you got the ball to Pedro, and watched as he strolled towards the touchline with opposition forwards hanging off him like terriers hanging on to a grizzly bear.  By the time he got to 5th year we were as tall as he was.  - Stephen Dobbin

+ I don't think I ever knew his name, but he was nicknamed "Turker berk" by Bill Trevethick! - Christine Plume (nee Dellino)

# Also sang in the G&S operettas with Mr Brand, if I remember correctly. Is he any relation to Tim Rice-Oxley of Keane?  It's an unusual name. - Christine Plume (nee Dellino)
