Frank Fellows was born in Beckenham, Kent and moved to Brighton in 1935. The College was an obvious choice for his education as few boys could have lived closer: Walpole Road being not even a stone's throw away. Joining the College at the end of the war he "lived" in the tin huts as a member of Leconfield House. His fondest memory seemed to have been, when in charge of the 25-pounder field gun crew, firing a salute on the Annual OTC (later CCF) Inspection; the blast from the blank round breaking several windows in Walpole Terrace!
It is with great sadness that the OB office reports the death of Rick Peckham (A. 1965-69) just before Christmas. Rick had played with the OB Rugby Football Club in his time, and had kept in touch with many OBs from his days here.

The Old Brightonians are sad to announce the death of Professor Bob McMinn (H. 1937-41). A great friend to the College, Bob delighted in the fact that when it was introduced the girls college uniform used Black Menzies, his own clan tartan. Bob was a great supporter of College projects, most recently making a gift to the Diamond Jubilee Pavilion.
