Historical Studies 40 year reunion

Historical Studies 40 year reunion

Alumna Jo Barber (nee Stephens) tells us about her Historical Studies reunion which took place in May 2014: 

A group of Historical Studies/ French Studies/ Literary Studies alumni recently celebrated 40 years since embarking on our respective courses at Portsmouth Poly, as it was known then. We dined in style at Kitch 'n d'or, just along the road from the Eldon Arms, where the all the Historians first met socially back in September 1974! It was a very moving occasion, with much hilarity, possibility too some toe-curling embarrassment, as memories of our time in Pompey were shared.  Preparations are already under way for future gatherings in Portsmouth and any other humanities etc. alumni from this time are of course very welcome to join us. Alumni records are kept by Jane Killingbeck (nee Sturdy) who the group would like to thank for making our reunions happen!
