Reunion 2016


This was for both 50s and 60s groups at The Black Boy, Shinfield (RG2 9BP) on Saturday, 16th April, 2016 and dinner later at the Holiday Inn, Reading South (RG2 0SL) for the 60s group.

The list of attendees, apologies etc is here.

There were two extra events as follows:

2.30pm  Visit to Shinfield Players Theatre (ex NAAFI) to look for any historical records, posters, documents etc. The Players’ Chairman, Graham Vockins and his wife opened up the building. They both made us very welcome. Unfortunately we didn’t find any old records of the old camp except for an undated Christmas Meal put on by ‘The Corporal’s Club’. I will post this soon.

4.00pm  Visit to Shinfield Lodge by invitation of the current owner, Paul Kennedy. Paul hadn’t finished moving in, but he took the time to show us around and offered to host us next year. More on this at a later stage.
