London Dinner 2015

This year's annual dinner for Old Edwardians living in and around London took place on Monday, 30 November 2015.

The Final WhistleThe guest speaker this year was Stephen Cooper (1976). After graduating from the University of Cambridge, Stephen was a MadMan in New York, London and Toronto and a poor rugby player wherever he went; he first began writing as a travel journalist. His grandfather fought at the Somme, but refused to tell the tale, so inspiring in him a lifelong fascination for the Great War. His first book The Final Whistle: The Great War in Fifteen Players was Rugby Book of the Year in the 2013 Times British Sports Book Awards.

The Chief Master, John Claughton (1975) and School Captain, Josh Kimblin, also spoke at what was another very successful OE event, evident via a selection of photographs taken from the evening.
