Messages of condolence may be sent to John’s son Robin at: 6 Avondale, Churkbank, Wrexham, LL14 5DF.

I did not know John. He predated me by a number of years — I only making it to Mill Hill (London, UK) for my ‘brief’ stay, prior to getting expelled in May 1971, in September 1969.

Don’t know why but when I got this e-mail something stirred. Maybe it was all the mentions re. Welsh Hockey. Hockey was never my thing but Wales is ‘home’.

Occurred to me that this blog probably reaches more people than other avenues for publicizing Old Millhillian obituaries. So I decided that I will try and do this in future.
