One of our former pupils, Bharat Patel (1964-71) is a former local radio & tv reporter. He has also written a book and ALL profits are going to Hope Against Cancer, a research charity. You can order copies direct from the charity by calling 0116 2700 101 or email firstname.lastname@example.org . The cost including postage is £11.50. If you wish to round up the figure then additional money can be gift aided. "Indian Takeaway" is the bewildering experience a boy, who by the age of eight has lived in three continents. At 21 he returns to the land of his birth where his formidable grandmother has lined up an arranged marriage. To find out what happens next ... please buy the book. You will have guessed the boy is Bharat and the book is full of stories you couldn't make up but happen to be true, with the caveat that there is a bit of journalistic embellishment. Thanks for your support and enjoy the book.

Whilst researching the WW2 Roll of Honour using the Wyvernians memorabilia, Brian Screaton came across a small envelope labelled 'Honours, wounds etc' . It contains press cuttings about 16 former City Boys pupils who were wounded during the War, became prisoners of war, &/or received honours of some kind (eg for their bravery). This additional information can be viewed in the usual place on the Wyvernians web site - or you can go straight to it here:-
Our Treasurer, Brian Screaton, felt that the 75th anniversary of D-Day was an ideal opportunity to research and produce an article about those 77 fallen ex pupils whose names appear on the WW2 memorial board. The board was restored in 2007 to its original place in the Great Hall at Clarence House (the old school building in Humberstone Gate). Brian's article, based on the contents of the Wyvernians memorabilia, is now here on the Wyvernians website and can be accessed via the Memorabilia section/ War Memorial Boards page - or you can go straight to it here; https://wyvernians-memorabilia.blogspot.com/p/the-cbs-fallen.html
