Goring 1956

The 1952 Intake

Some photographs of a school outing to Goring undertaken by Fred Hoskins' 4th Form class in 1956. The pictures were sent by Kenneth Watson, who writes: "During this outing Brian Howett and Geoff Lane managed to capsize a canoe whilst boating on the Thames. For the rest of us it was probably the highlight of the day and most amusing. However for Geoff and Brian it was not so amusing as somehow the local press got hold of the story and managed to turn it into a life saving incident. The photographs are of class members on a Thames pleasure boat later in the afternoon following the canoe capsize incident."
