The Windsor 10 meet for lunch and memories

6 Jun 2024
OE news

A gathering of senior Old Eastbournians took place on Tuesday 28 May in Guildford, when the remaining members of the 'Windsor 10' met for lunch and reminiscences.

Named after the study room in School House which they had shared as pupils, the group had met regularly over the years since they left the College in the late 1950s. However, since Covid and, following the death in 2020 of one of their members David Winn (School 1954-59), they had not got together for a number of years.

Headmaster Tom Lawson sent a letter with his best wishes to the lunch guests, saying: 'I hope you are not behaving too well and growing old disgracefully. One of the guiding lights of your group, David Winn, who we all miss, was always playful and fun-loving into late adulthood. This joie de vivre is characteristic of an Old Eastbournian, and I hope we still nurture young people that remain young at heart. There are many loyal OEs, and some naturally coalesce into groups, but no group is more renowned (and infamous) than the Windsor 10. Those boys from that study room in School House that never forget the joy and formative experiences they had growing up there.'

The Windsor 10 members pictured here are, standing, Mike Mulvany (School 1954-59) and Alastair Graham (School 1954-59); and seated, left to right, Pat Colbourne (School 1955-59), John Hendley (School 1954-58), and Tim Riordan (School 1954-58),
