On Saturday 3 September a group of OEs got together in memory of their friend Behnam Djazaeri (Pennell 1971-76), who died in April 2020.
Chris Zanetti (Pennell 1971-76) sent us this photo of the memorial dinner held at The Oak in Westbourne Grove.
He said: 'We shared stories of our time at Eastbourne and the great memories we have of Behnam at that time. We felt Behnam’s spirit was in the room.'
An affectionate tribute to Behnam, co-written by Chris with fellow OE Suzy Buchanan (Nugent 1974-76), appeared in the 2020 edition of the Old Eastbournian magazine. On leaving the College Behnam studied medicine and became a consultant ENT surgeon in London. He died aged just 63.
