Ingram Losner (BCJS 1971-73, D. 1973-78) - OB of the Month, January 2011

In order to keep in touch with our ever-growing alumni, we have started identifying individuals to head up regional and country groups in areas where there is a thriving community of Old Brightonians. The commitment of these individuals' time will be an invaluable resource for the Old Brightonians, as they help us to spread the net in engaging our former pupils. In the USA we are lucky to have Ingram Losner (BCJS 1971-73, D. 1973-78). Ingram went to live in the US in 1994 for what he thought would be a two year stint, but ended up staying and making his life there.

With preparations underway for the World Cup in New Zealand this year, it is with an inflated ego and a great deal of national pride that I humbly submit that we have a new contender this year: The United States of America.
