Re-living the past
Zuhayr Mohamood (Ogilvie House) and Richard Mason (Gray House) came to visit the Museum yesterday as part of Museum awarness day.  They were given a tour by the Curator Dr Murray and then they took some time out, to try on some of the exhibits.  Richard is wearing a boater made of stiff sennit with a flat crown and brim typically with a two-striped grosgrain ribbon around the crown, of Bishops colours and the Mitre.  Zuhayr is wearing the slouch hat that was in use by the Cadet Corps from 1950 - 1962 when it was replaced with a peaked cap.
