Mundella 1939ers et al - 2018 Luncheon Dates
I have fixed the dates for the 2018 Pub Lunches and hope you will put them in your diary.
They will be at the “Wollaton” Pub, (formerly called the “Willoughby”), Lambourne Drive, Wollaton, NG8 1GR. (Tel: (0115) 928 8610).
If approaching from the Ring Road, take the Wollaton Road (A609), then turn right at the second set of traffic lights into Lambourne Drive and the pub is immediately on the right-hand corner, parking at the rear.
The dates are always on a Thursday, from 12 noon to around 2.00 pm and for 2018 are:
22nd March 7th June 11th October 29th November
Any old scholars can join us. Mostly those who started at the school in the 1940s. This would mean we were all at Mundella more or less, at the same time.
The Wollaton Pub like some idea of the numbers attending, therefore, could I say I will count you ‘in’, unless I hear from you in the days immediately prior to the luncheon? (As Should there be an early heavy fall of snow as several years ago, it may be necessary to cancel our luncheon. It would help if you would give me a ring, otherwise I am left trying to reach everyone.
Looking forward to seeing you again.

The Mundella website, replacement of the Mundella Old Scholars' Association, has managed at last to get a new poppy wreath on the WW1 memorial at St Mary's in the Lace Market.
Having searched for years for what was popularly supposed to be a similar WW2 Memorial, we found a small item in an old School magazine which stated that MOSA had launched an appeal, not for a solid memorial, but for funds to send 2 pupils every year to Europe in memory of those who died in WW2. Sadly there had been a poor response, and we can only assume that the idea was abandoned. It seems unlikely therefore that there was ever a solid memorial, unless anyone has any photos? So we've mocked up the 1945 magazine cover, and placed 2 sheets in it with all the names we know.
If you get chance to go and see it, please do; there are lots of other interesting items in the Church, but check service times online.
