Kerry left Cambridge in October 1969 to work for E.I. DuPont in the U.S.  He spent 20 years moving about the U.S. and up the DuPont management ladder - and 10 years in MexicoJapan (twice), Hong Kong and Australia as Managing Director of various DuPont businesses. Kerry returned to England in 1999 as CEO of DuPont Sabanci.  He has been married to Gillian since their days in Cambridge and has two daughters, Lara, a lawyer in San Francisco and Sinead, a curator of Japanese Art at the Met in New YorkAlong the way he played rugby for Yale, MIT, Vanderbilt and Delaware universities as well as a number of city teams, was active in theatre and sang in Karaoke bars around the world. Leaving industry in 2002, he moved to Santa Fe and became a school and college teacher of Maths - and a professional actor.


Michael went off to the South Seas in 1971, working for the government of the Gilbert Islands.  He stayed there for five years, helping them prepare for independence as the Republic of Kiribati. There he met and married Nei Rotee – they have three grown up children, and three grandsons. Returning to Britain in the late 1970s, they survived 17 reluctant years in London; Michael worked first in the public sector and then as a management consultant.  In the early 1990s he and Rotee escaped to the Black Mountains, buying a ruined old manor house and smallholding. He was asked by the Kiribati Government in 1996 to look after their interests in the UK, as Kiribati’s Honorary Consul; this he still does.   They sold their consulting business in 2009 and now work full time on the smallholding. Michael has not played publicly, or indeed very much at all, in recent years, and now plunks as well as he can with gouty fingers!

Unlike the rest of us, Pete had a real career as a folk singer. After Cambridge, he landed a Sunday night booking at the Kings Head in Islington and continued his association with the great (sadly deceased) Steve Pheasant, performing 'Honky Tonk Women' at a Peace Fair in Brighton.  As John discovered too, social work was ‘hip’ in the early 1970s, so that’s what he did - supplementing his income with playing bars and restaurants, and narrowly missing arrest when cheating the ‘2 in a bar rule’. He is still a card carrying member of the Musicians’ Union. Iain Cameron let him join him playing at his local church for a while.  Pete has not yet retired and still practices social work in London, because - he claims - that unlike Kerry, he cannot do Santa Claus, nor speak
I Kiribati like Michael, nor safely navigate the Gorbals like John.

 John, after a brief stint at the London film school, also opted for a career in social work; after training at Kent University, he moved to Glasgow in 1976.  He has been here ever since, working in local government and for the voluntary sector. John has three grown up children. He stopped full time work in 2011, but seems to have ended up with enough part time work to keep well occupied! He has continued to play the guitar, but only for his own amusement. Neil Young, both electric and acoustic versions, has been his guiding light since the Maglory Dengluch days, along with Emmylou Harris (and Glasgow group Teenage Fanclub, to prove that he is still young at heart). That's him on his 60th birthday.
