We were all required to write a thesis of 3000 words for submission in our final term. Tony Mooney wrote his on Space Travel and Tony Burton wrote his on Blood. On the day he had to hand it in he went to sick quarters and had them put some of his blood in a sachet which he attached to the cover of his thesis. Neither of these two theses have survived.

Three theses did survive though. Johnny Nottingham’s was published in the Locking Review in 1959, Tony Beard still has his and so too does Colin Rouse. All are available from the menu below as well as from their member pages.
