The pancake was thrown this year as usual on Shrove Tuesday, but was not thrown over the bar.
The pancake was thrown as usual on Shrove Tuesday, although there had been some fear lest it might have to be omitted owing to the illness of Lady Augusta Stanley. It was thrown at 10 o’clock, as it happened that St. David’s day fell on the very same day. The Pan-cake was landed in Mr Gibson’s form, which was at length smashed in the struggle. The pancake as usual came to grief and no-body gained the sovereign.

The pancake was thrown as usual on Shrove Tuesday but was broken by the energetic attempts of the competitors. In consequence the usual reward was not given.
The “pancake” was thrown as usual this half. However, it was unfortunately torn to pieces in the same way as last year. The “Greaze” was as spirited as ever.

The pancake was thrown this year according to custom. It cleared the lower bar and fell among the desks near Ingram’s form. There was a very good ‘greaze’ but as it was torn no one received the sovereign.
The pancake was thrown by the cook’s son this year. It went over the bar & fell amongst the Upper Fifth desks but came to pieces in the grease so no one got the guinea.
Though it was greatly feared that the Pancake would be “improved” away by the governors, who by some means or other had substituted a female cook in College hall, the event duly came off on Shrove Tuesday: it was thrown by the cook’s son immediately after instead of before prayers, and very well thrown too, for it very nearly cleared the upper bar: R: W: S: Vidal (Q. S) caught it and immediately put it under his coat and commenced greasing away: no one thought he had it, but Stephenson was the suspected holder, accordingly everyone set upon him, and great was the surprise when Scott cried “Hold, Enough” to see Vidal produce the pancake, for which of course he obtained the Dean’s sovereign.
This year H. C. A. Conybeare, formerly a T.B. up Home Boarders, passed very creditably (17th) into the I.C.S.

The cook again failed to throw the pancake over the bar this year, but he was only hissed and not booked as on a former occasion. Shrove Tuesday fell on the first of March this year so that Sir Watkin Wynn came down upon the same day, and the pancake was thrown at 10, instead of 11 o’clock as usual.
On February 9th Shrove Tuesday the annual tossing for the pancake took place in the school room at 12 oclock. The present college cook, more expert than his brother the late cook, made a splendid throw the pancake falling well over the bar. F. N. Saunders Q. S. succeeded in keeping it through a rather long struggle, and of course got the £1.

After a good ‘grease’ this year, Lee won the pancake which was thrown into the fifth horse-shoe. He got the customary £1 1s from the Dean.
