Val Were (38-41)

Reunion - Val Were with Robin Paine

 

 

Val Were (Hesperus 1938-41) is only one of two born and bred New Zealand OPs and is probably the second oldest still up and running at 93 after Keith Evans (33-37).  Val was hoping to be at the Centenary Gala Dinner at the RNZYS on 25th February, but decided a couple of weeks prior to the event that he wasn’t up to it. He was, however, promised a ‘Welcome Pack’ with all the ‘goodies’ in it, including a short history of the College.  So here he is with the organiser of the NZ reunion, Robin Paine (55-58; right in the photo) being presented with the pack at his retirement village in Auckland.
