In the early hours recently, I lay awake with vivid memories of my Marlborough years vividly flowing through my mind.

I started off […]
Part 2 of Anthony Dowlen’s collection of fabulous photos from the early 60s continues with his photos of the production of Hamlet in 1964. We’d love to hear from you if you are in the photos. Do send in any memories you have of your time at the College to firstname.lastname@example.org.

But perhaps I can claim to have been present at one mildly significant occasion: the final journey of the Marlborough […]
As I, plus a couple of fellow OMs with whom I have remained closely in touch, reach our 89th birthdays, I would venture to add our names to be included in the [OM Memories section of the website]. They are F.G. Coles (B2 1945-49) and T.M. Halton (B1 1945-49). Gale Coles (always “Freddy” at MC) […]
In 2002 Alastair Edmonds, Richard Kelly and Alex Wainwright, all C1 1997 – 2002, cycled from John O’Groats to Land’s End on a triplet to rase funds for The Brain Tumour Charity, in memory of Hugo McDermott (B1 1998 -2001) who died of a brain tumour in 2001. Peter Mynors (C3 1954 – 59) lent […]
