Memories of school
Long weekends home to Nakuru in the John Lenton family 203 pick-up - us two sliding around in armchairs in the open
back as we motored down the escarpment and across Rift Valley.
Mr. Phillips (Hawke Housemaster) on the touch-line during rugby practices - with cane for encouragement.
Getting up at 5 o'clock to do Ben Sayer's dhobi - including underwear.
Having to admit to the whole chemistry class that I'd copied all my homework off John Gatti.
Since leaving school
Mechanical Engineering (not very well!) at Aberdeen.
Apprenticeship with Rolls-Royce, then into RAF, initially as an engineer, but switched to flying almost
17 years in RAF, then 17 with Monarch Airlines, retiring in 2006.
Angie (a nurse) and I live in Cambridge. Katy (32) and Nick (29), are both in Nottingham.
