David Leonard Brooks

House: Junior/Intermediate/Grigg
Years: 1956-1959

Memories of School:
  • Living in a dorm with thirty other boys
  • Watching a glass eye rattle round a sink
  • Swimming Gala days and sports in general.
  • More memories will return in time I'm sure.

    Since leaving school:
    Joined the British Army from school and served in Germany the Far East then trained as a helicopter pilot in 1967 and flew in The Trucial States and Europe. Spent time teaching at the school of army aviation before leaving the service in 1974 and joining Bristow Helicopters Ltd with whom I still work to this day. Have served with them in Iran, Malaysia, The Falkland Islands, The USA and the North Sea. Since 1988 have worked in Warri Nigeria.

    Now I live in Scarborough within a mile of where I was born. My wife Alice is from Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia and we have two boys aged 19 & 18 named Samuel & George.

    To all my old friends from long ago - HELLO OUT THERE, I AM STILL HERE!!
