QBC I in the Head of the River Race, Saturday, 25th March 1961
Pat Rayner, Ted Harris, Brian Aldridge, John "Red" Williamson, Francis Brown, Bob Mills, Ced Nowell, Mike Cadiz, Allen McTernan (cox). Thanks to Ced Nowell in Ontario for filling in some of the names.
Ced also recollects that this crew took on and beat Oxford University in the build up to the varsity boat race. He recalls,"Our coach that year - as always - was Lou Barry. Jumbo Edwards coached Oxford. Lou was a Squadron Leader and a professional. Edwards was a Group captain and an amateur. A formula for rivalry. Edwards wanted us to row a full course trial against his crew rather than just act as a pacing crew for a third of the course and offered a two length start. Lou said it was not a good idea but then said "OK", declining the two lengths. Oxford never had a chance. Lou said sorry to Edwards and thank you to us."
