thanks for posting these words, much appreciated.
If you'd written "miced meories" in your school work while at "The Brothers" you might have even more mixed memories!
If it was really written by Miss Kate Dowling, she would hardly have written the verse about the brothers, as it was a boys-only school. Methinks this verse was added for the occasion of the Brothers golden Jubilee!
I'd be interested in seeing the other verses, Martin, even if they're not great; just curious to see what they refer to. If you have time, please.
