Jack Baldry (G23-29) and his wife Ruby celebrated their Platinum Wedding Anniversary (70th) on Thursday 13th April 2006 and were the subject of an article in the East Anglian Daily Times on 11th April. Jack was a career civil servant, apart from wartime service in the signals section of the RAF. Private secretary to the Postmaster General from 1950 to 1953 he advanced to become Director of Purchasing and Supplies from 1969 to 1972 earning him an entry in Who’s Who. It was their love of tennis that brought Jack and Ruby together and they Played at the Framlingham Club until they were 70.
Jack is wondering if he is the oldest living Old Framlinghamian but this position still seems to be held by Maurice Metcalf (R20-24) who was born on 10th March 1908 whereas Jack’s birth date is 5th October 1911
