25 March 2020


An email has been sent out to everyone on our Main Broadcast list detailing a pause in proceedings for now given the current situation we all find ourselves in. 

Keep in touch and keep visiting the website while we await the Covid19 situation to abate.

Keep safe and keep well.

Happy New Year!

You should have all recieved a "Main Broadcast" email today (12 Jan) so please check and let us know if nothing received, the contact data base is still a work in progress.....

Thanks to those who have been updating their content on the BRNC 85 site and adding to the various sections. If you do add anything, please also add a quick update in the "Spin Dits" section just to say who has been doing what. It helps everyone see what is new. 

Speaking of which, thanks to Kev H and Keith B who have been adding some hilarious photos from St Vincent activities, scary to see the fresh faced enthusiasm of youth! See the College Phots album in the Jack Phots section.

We will now be keeping in more regular touch during the year and as we run in to the September weekend itself.  As and when people know their diaries and can confirm their attendance, please let the Flagship know too.

Also added to the site this afternoon, in the "Your Shipmates" section, downloadable files of the Sep 85 Holdover Entry and the BRNC List for all staff and OUT's Sep 85.

Carry On!

One Year to Run - On Track By Headmark

If you have not recieved an email today (22 Sep) then it probably means we don't have up to date contact details for you on the system. 

As the countdown commences for next years' event, please keep up to date by visiting the website and contacting the Flagship with any updates, suggestions or additional contact details for anyone not in direct comms with the Flasghip.

34 Years this week the September 85 contingent arrived on the parade ground. Anyone fancy a pint up at the NAAFI Pavilion Bar to celebrate?

Two months since the original Testing Comms broadcast was sent out and we have had 45 responses.  It's good, but we can do better.

We will be sending out another reminder, having made a fair few amendments to the contact data base, but again please prompt former shipmates and spread the word. 

In the meantime we have been updating the Website to reflect the 2020 plans. This has included a refresh of the College Lingo page. If you spot that there are words/phrases that you fondly (?) recall from your first term and which have not been included, please let us know. We are happy to accept contributions.

We have now succesfully tested the comms set up and thanks to those who have replied.

If you have not already done so, please let us know your current email address and/or respond to the initial "Testing Comms" email.

Please do pass on the email to anyone you know from our era who may not have been able to attend the previous reunions and who will not therefore be on our contact list.
