Charles Garner and Colin Day at Oxford in 1964

I stumbled on this photo online. It shows two ex-RGS pupils sitting in their friend's room at St Edmund Hall, Oxford, in 1964. The two are Charles Garner, left, and Colin Day, right. Colin Day won a State Scholarship to read Physics at St Edmund Hall in 1962, while Charles Garner gained a place to read Jurisprudence [Law] there in the same year. The notes to the photo tell us that Colin Day was the advertising manager for the university newspaper (a copy of which he is holding). (The friend's name is David Combie - not an OW as far as I know.) Anyone know what became of these two OWs thereafter?

I was in the same year as Colin Day. We were in 6S1 - 6S3 together and the Form Masters were Mr Leggett for 6S1 and 6S2 and Mr Mewse for 6S3. I lost touch with him after leaving school, so I don't know what happened to him afterwards.
