History
ESTABLISHMENT OF THE OLD DALIAN UNION The   need   to   establish   an   Old   Boys'   Club   came   from   the   first   known   and   appointed   Headmaster   of   the   Non-denominational   public   School   for   Boys   and the forerunner to Dale College. - John Samuels (1867 to 1875) John   Samuel   returned   for   a   visit   to   King   William’s Town   in   1880   on   his   way   to   England.   He   was   hosted   as   guest   of   honour   at   a   reunion   dinner   given   in his   honour   by   his   former   pupils. At   the   dinner,   conceivably   the   first   ever   recorded   Old   Boys   Reunion   Dinner,   the   suggestion   came   from   Mr   Samuel   to form   an   “Old   Boys   Club”.   Those   present   at   the   Central   Hotel   that   evening   included   Mr.   Samuel’s   successor,   the   Headmaster   Robert   Hart   Fuller, James   Wilson   Weir   who   was   chairman   of   the   College   Committee.   Captain   Cecil   D’Arcy   of   the   Cape   Frontier   Light   Horse   Regiment   and   who   had   won the Victoria Cross in the Ulundi Campaign a year earlier sent his apologies. It   was   not   till   24   July   1893   that   the   Union   of   Old   Boys   was   formed.      The   Headmaster   Rev   Joseph   George   Sutton   called   a   meeting   in   the   College   Hall (later   to   become   the   dining   Hall   of   Sutton   House).   He   was   on   his   way   back   to   the   "Old   Country"   as   England   was   called   for   a   well-earned   rest.   J   G Sutton wanted the Union to be modelled on that of the South African College School (SACS) who had a specific number of members by this date. Under   the   genial   influence   of   the   fragrant   weed   (tobacco)   combined   with   judicious   refreshments   and   the   enthusiastic   oratory   of   the   various   speakers, the scheme took shape, culminating in the formation there and then of a Union. Over 50 names were immediately enrolled.
