New addition to the OBA archive

The OBA maintains an archive of materials which have been passed to it by OBs and others. We are grateful that in recent weeks, the son of JCG Neville, School Captain 1932-33, contacted us via the School to offer a set of School magazines dated from 1925-36 which his father had kept.

The OBA archive is a rich source of information about the School and Old Bordenians and is maintained by Marc Stewart, OBA Committee Member and School Governor. Marc welcomes any contributions such as Mr Neville's and any queries about the archive.

Ken Heaver (At school 1941-47) has passed away and his sister, Maureen Fox, has been in touch with the OBA to inform us of his death.
