Time Travel At The Rose & Crown Re-Union 2013

Itinerant Oldie Peter Isaac and his wife Gail, both fresh from New Zealand, via France, found that the past half century or so melted away when they encountered a posse of contemporary Oldies at the Rose & Crown near Chilton Cantelo.

They had anticipated a “quiet” lunch with familiar old lags Peter Liesching, Edward Lutley, and Clive Lewis-Hopkins. But when they entered the tap room they also found themselves among a detachment of others from the Class of circa 1962 including Ruth Sawtell, Nick Collis, Dave Wilson and Richard Cotes-James.

“I recognised everyone immediately,” recalled Isaac. “We just took up where we had left off — I felt like a time traveller which I suppose, in I sense, I was. It was a fantastic piece of logistics by Clive and Edward.”

  1. Greetings from Canada! I would be very interested if you could forward my contact information to Peter Liesching, present at your 2013 reunion, if that is possible. I am presently researching my Layard/Liesching family history….and if I have got it right he is Peter Charles Liesching son of John Clement Liesching and his wife Patricia Emily nee Shackle…..Mallock. I am presently in touch with several Lieschings of this generation, have some pictures but am always looking for more! and would very much like it if he could contact me at victorj@sympatico.ca
    Other than touching base and saying hello to my 3rd cousin I have no ulterior motives in this effort. Hoping you can pass along this message, with thanks
