I can only remember half the guys i think the guys from grade 1.
I am finding it difficult to send e mails to all the guys the e mail is getting rejected because of one or two addresses.
I can remember Roy being one.
Please forward this e mail to all the guys and I want to know if any of the guys are in the uk or in london to be precise.
Last week to keep the spirits up thulasi came from Sri Lanka.
We had a dinner at my place there was also another old Thomian with us so we sang the college anthem as loud as we could.
It was fantastic and all those fantastic memories came back to me.
What a fantastic college.
Please convey my regards to Shiran. We played Hockey together.If Iam correct he had had 2 older brother's, who too played Hockey for College. They are related to the the Wijayasooriya brothers, who all did sports from Barnes Ave.Mt. Lavinia. I spoke to Rukmal W. in Sydney, Australia, when I was on holiday.
Suresh B. , I met his Parents when they were in Toronto.Canada.
I spoke to Hensman a couple of months ago. I also was able to speak to Ravi Kuruppu and William Hendricus.
All those names bring back memories.
Thanks for sending copies of the E-mail's.

You who have been a part of my earliest days enriched my life in many different ways and still through recollection and association the pleasure continues…
I am sorry I could not make it to join in the celebrations but will be with you in spirit!
So from the earliest of days from Form I b – day 1 – back bench –flanked by Weerasooriya (Mahasiri) and Amarasinghe (Lakshan) with 'Bamboo David;s introduction to 'The man and his Cheeses' to the final days in Coll Forms filled with many episodes too numerous to mention - it was a priviledge-
Therefore my friends,
May your stories be many,
Your feelings run deep
Those were our days
They're still ours to keep
No matter where we be
We remember with pleasure
Old mates, Old times
…and that old school by the sea
