Travel plans align for RPH reunion

International travel plans align for RPH contemporaries!

OS James Shanks (GH,RPH, 76-82) has been in touch to share news of a recent RPH reunion:

‘A few of us managed to meet up on Friday 7th June at the Leopard Bar within The Montague on The Gardens, Russell Square. 

It was the first time in over 40 years that many of us had seen guest of honour Pat Campbell , who managed to join us after delaying his return home to NY after a small diversion from a business meeting in Switzerland. 

We had a really enjoyable evening, each catching up around the table on our life stories since BSC .

Nigel Birch (GH,RPH,74-83)

Steve Ong (RPH,82-83)

Jonathan Hirst (MJH,RPH, 76-83)

Mark Peeters (RPH, 79-84)

Rich Grass (RPH, 78-83)

Pat Campbell (RPH,78-83) 

There were apologies from Mark Heath (GH,RPH, 76-83), Simon Powell (GH,RPH, 76-81), Mark Collins (RPH,78-83), Paul Collins (RPH,82-87), Alan Stacey (RPH, 79-84), Darryl Tooth (GH,RPH, 75-83) and Giles Peeters (GH,RPH, 79-87).

Rich Grass, Pat Campbell and Jonathan Hirst then went to Twickenham on Saturday 8th June , to watch Rich's mighty Northampton Saints lift the trophy after a highly entertaining match.

We all intend to get together more frequently than every 40 years and add more RPH/OS - now that we're all approaching significant birthdays!  Other RPH contemporaries can get in touch at

Fabulous to see such strong OS bonds in place across the years and across the miles!
