1946 Reunion

The Graduates of 1946 celebrated their 68th. Reunion Luncheon at 165 Macquarie Street, on Friday 23rd .May 2014. Two hundred and fifty one commenced Medicine in 1941. One hundred and twenty seven graduated, with forty seven of those alive today. Eleven of us, all over ninety years attended this special function with Dick Stephens in his 98th year! Five wives and family members accompanied us, making a total of sixteen to enjoy a very convivial occasion.

There were, of course, many anecdotes and reminders of our special years together, and those of our absent colleagues. A group photograph of our year before graduation was displayed together with a list of the deaths and a few of the letters of apology. Cath Hamlin sent her best wishes from Ethiopia. Gaston Bauer remains unwell. We also received messages from Bill Gilmour, Frank Hytten, John Austin, Alison Garven, Don Dunlop, Reg Hook, Neville Newman, Helen Wiles, Kevin White, Steve Richardson, and Grosvenor Burfitt- Williams.

We are indebted to Maureen Rogers for taking the group photograph of the graduates in attendance.

All agreed this Reunion was very successful, but probably our last, although there were some suggesting we should meet again next year!
