The photo we published last week has generated some discussion. Old Boy James Stewert has told us
"FDMC junior school v St.Mary's Blenheim annual rugby match. Shot features St.Mary's prematch team talk with John McMahon, foreground,not particularly interested in tactics"
Another reliable source, in current staff member Peter Costello can confirm the details on the basis that he himself is in the picture - not that we would have recognised him! Peter tells us the St Mary's team was under 6st 7lb, the game was played at Sanders Park and that FDMC where the victors 15 to 0. Peter also recalls the flight that the boys took from Blenheim to New Plymouth, his first time in an aeroplane. He can also recall the cost of the flight as being 5 Pound 12 Shillings.
