2006 Dinner

Old Secundrians dinner card 2006 - Guest speaker the 95 year old  widow of Headmaster H J Mills who recorded her speech as could not attend in person.

This was the speech that she recorded for our 2006 dinner when Aileen (widow of Headmaster H J Mills) was 95 years old and registered blind - it is a magnificent piece of oratory for one of that age. One can certainly tell that she was a radio voice in her time (notably "Dot" of the Luscombes and "Tess" in Tess of the Durbervilles). Sadly, Aileen passed away in 2007. She lived for just one more day than her husband had done
