SADLY TWO DAYS AGO I WAS GIVEN THE NEWS BY CHRIS..JOHN HUNTS SON THAT HE HAD JUST PASSED AWAY IN THE EARLY HOURS. I ONLY KNEW JOHN FOR A SHORT NUMBER OF YEARS, BUT LIKE ALL NICE PEOPLE HE MADE A LASTING IMPRESSION ON ME AND MY FAMILY. ONE THING HE WAS VERY PROUD OF WAS THAT THE LOCAL PEOPLE CALLED FORMER GOLDINGS BOYS WHO SETTLED IN AND AROUND HERTFORD "THE GENTLEMEN". QUITE A DRY SENSE OF HUMOUR, AND WELL RESPECTED BY FORMER GOLDINGS BOYS. I DON'T THINK HE WILL MIND ME REPEATING A STORY OF AN INCIDENT AT GOLDINGS ALONG WITH THE MANY WE ALL HOLD. "DAVID IN MY TIME AT GOLDINGS WE HAD A SEAMSTRESS WHO WAS A SINGLE LADY WITH NO KNOWN MAN FRIEND, WHO ONE DAY WAS COMING DOWN THE PASSAGE TO THE DINING ROOM. WE SAW HER APPROACHING, SO I BORROWED A SHEET AND PUT IT OVER MY HEAD. AS SHE CAME CLOSER TO THE LAUNDRY, I JUMPED OUT WITH THE BLANKET OVER MY HEAD. SHE GASPED IN HORROR!! AND DO YOU KNOW WE THINK THAT WAS THE ONLY ORGASAM SHE SUFFERED IN HER LIFE"

Today I had a message from Jimmy James to say sadly, that our President John Hunt had lost his long and verry brave fight.He was an example to us all, and he will be verry sorely missed.

It is with great sadness in my heart that I have been asked to inform you all that our friend John Hunt passed away on the 29th of August 2006 after a long and painful tiring illness.

John was one of Dr. Barnardoís finest; he was a staunch supporter of our reunions and a great friend to so many Old Boys. I know that I shall miss him just as many of you will too.

Dave will try and fill in details of the funeral arrangements on his return.

Iím sure that we will all join together in sending our condolences to His wife and family.

RIP John, our friend, may you find peace, and we will reunite again one day.

SOME OF THE LADS FEEL THEY ARE IN THE FILM AS EXTRA'S, SO IT SHOULD BE AVAILABLE AT THE RE-UNION
