I gather the rain came down like stair rods and everyone got extremely wet. There was an excellent sermon which proved that Jesus was a black woman (no fair trial and had to get up and work even when dead!) and that the band played even though the drumskins must have got a soaking.

Afterwards Jonathan and a friend visited Fortnum and Masons where his sole expenditure was a present for me - one scorpion encased in chocolate! - before visiting the Tower of London and claiming the ancient right of free entry as bluecoat children.

I understand he marched in the front rank behind the band - any pictures, anyone?

I have a few from the YOB evening in the pub on my phone!

I think Ruth Tyrell should have some fine photos on her excellent camera - she said it was so wet that she went and bought another change of clothes!

The evening 'meet up' was fun - I nearly missed my last train back! Oops!

When I got there, I only recognised Ruth -although the place was full of recent OB's - some of which I recognised later on. More people came in whom I recognised!

We had a core group of people who stayed until the pub closed of:

Ruth Tyrell, Marty Elmore, Stuart Abercrombie, Ian Henderson, Kate Atkinson, Olly Harry, Christian Ashby, Tom Meeks and Lucinda Thomson
Maine B - 1992-95 Maine A 1995-99

Oh for goodness sakes... the Tower not the scorpion. As for the scorpion, IIRC you'll eat it and wish you'd spent the money on a bottle of wine instead of the novelty.

I'm not sure if they actually sell chocolate-coated towers. I will ask Jonathan though - he it was who did the shopping.

Chocolate encased scorpions. Hmm, what happens when the chocolate breaks, does the scorpion run away and hide in the laundry?
