The Reunion Group


This Reunion Group held several annual meetings at the Stafford Hotel in Chester during the early 1990's, but due to age related travel problems and the deaths of members, the group wound up by mutual consent when numbers dropped to around six. However many of the surviving members are still in contact with each other via telephone and letters.


It might be of some interest to readers to know the original membership of the group, though it should be emphasised that many of those listed have now passed away.
