Isminos - welcome aboard now that you have managed to register.

I am sure you will manage to unearth some colleagues from your time at the WC.

Best wishes.

Hi Isminos,
            I was at the college the same time as you (Sept 1967-Feb 70) and I feel sure that we knew each other. I think I remember you being popular with the local girls.
There was another man from Cyprus I remember called Carlos, who told us he had been the Cyprus goalkeeper, he was a bit of a show off, but I think you were a quieter one
Did you go to sea? I don't remember when you left.
My picture is on the WC site in Gallery 5 photo 7 and 8. Which may prompt you memory a bit, also you may remember others from the photos

Yes Rolly - you have identified Isminos. Always popular with the ladies! I shared a dorm with him and Costa for two terms. Isminos tells me that Costa is sadly departed. We are in email contact and busy chatting over old times Surprised)

Hi Rolande. This morning I answered your msg but I dont see it. In case you didnt saw it I am writing again.First sorry that I was so late to answer. I was very busy. Now I saw your msg. Yes I do remember you. I recognise many students at my time but I dont remember names. Costas was with me, no Carlos. Unfortunately he died. Yes I worked on ships for 3 years, then I was 6 years at Interpol communication center and then I became an airtraffic controller untill I retired. Hey!!! my friend I should know those year that I was popular among ladies not now.

Hi Isminos,
                    Very sad to hear about Costas, he was a larger than life character.
Your tale of your arrival at Colwyn Bay was very familiar. It always seemed to rain on arrival back at College after a nice summer break. I think my first dorm was dorm 9. It was a large dorm with 10 of us new boys. I think you must have been in a different dorm. I remember Tony Cable, Ray Fodey, Frank Murphy,James Davies and Peter Simpson, I remember the others from their faces, but not the names.    I canít say that I remember the College very fondly, as I had no money (10 shillings a week from my mother) and the weather was just so terrible, but the people that I met made up for it, there was such a wide variety of people from different parts of the world, and in general everybody got on well and help each other. I would not have missed the experience.

Rolande

Hi Rollande
I stayed at the dorm only 2 terms. After that I rent a room outside the college. First term I was at first floor the room looking in the street. Second term I was on the same floor in the room just opposite the first, with Dave Baker and Costas. From the pictures I saw I recognise few but honestly I dont remember names.The only names I was remebering all those years it was Dave Baker and Ron Adams.
Best regards
Isminos
