TOGA History

This is a "potted" history because compiling anything like a "full" history would depend on the careful trawling-through of the seventy years' worth of archives and interviewing hundreds of members, and former members, for their recollections. There are, in fact, few archives, and most of the people who would be worth interviewing have now passed away. Hence this history is "potted" ! 
 
Here is an eyewitness account of the inaugural meeting of the Epsom Old Boys' Association written by S White, a former School Captain, in the (short-lived) Association Year-Book of 1963:
 
"Twenty-five years ago the Old Boys' Association was formed. I remember, as though it were yesterday, the inaugural meeting held under the chairmanship of the school's first Headmaster, the late Mr F L Clark. From the staff we had Dr Neave and Messrs Dawkins, Richards and Hardy, who were all to prove such friends and supporters in the years to come. Of the old boys present I remember particularly such stalwarts as Roy Cantwell, Ron Wallis, Dennis Roberts, Reg Perry, Ron King and others who still, twenty-five years later, are taking an interest in the Association's activities. Dr Neave, as I remember, was elected Association Chairman, and my brother and I took on the job of joint honorary secretaries.
