    Hello Owen,
    I am delighted to find that there is such an active OBA.I came accross an old newspaper which noted a reunion but unfortunately misplaced it. Nevertheless I intend to keep in contact from now on. I was at “Indy”in the mid sixties before heading off with the Bank Line.I can recall Capt.Wade and one of the officers by the name of James Bond (no joke)from Edinburgh.No doubt more will spring to mind over the period.Looking forward to contacting you again and hopefully meeting up with the other OBs at some time.

    Kind regards

    John Clark

    I was amazed to find this….after many years, i decided to look for my old school and i was sad to see it had closed. But i am glad to have found this ‘reunion’ website.

    Yes i am a ‘Nozzer’ from the 1982-83 class. I was only at Inde for a year and never went into the armed forces. The discipline i learnt at Inde has carried me through all of my life so far.

    My question is…Is there any 82-83 members around today still?

    thanks Mark Covell

    it is great to find this site,for years ive been trying to find anything to do with the indifat,ive read everything on this site and found it brill,some of the storys by the old boys befor my time at the indi reminded me of things id seen and done. I went to the indi in 1977 to 1979 and i was number 70 and slept in dorm 1( always the cleanest),I was also in the band.

Besides strong kernel, a man of replica watches sale great charm and is rolex replica uk gentle gentleman graceful bearing.
