Here – Summer 2005

We congratulate Richard Sayer (S 56-61) on being installed as Prime Warden of the Worshipful Company of Shipwrights. Richard is ex-senior partner of international maritime solicitors Ince and Co. and is currently chairman of shipbrokers Galbraith’s and chairman of Maritime London, the organization promoting London’s maritime services. On behalf of Maritime London he chaired the British Invisibles Committee 2000 report on London maritime services and presented the 2003 follow-up report. He is Vice-President of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, past chairman of the Admiralty Solicitors Group and chairs the British Maritime Law Association committee on salvage and wreck removal. A member of the UK Committee of Bureau Veritas, the French equivalent of Lloyds Register, he is a member of the Baltic Exchange and was appointed an Examiner in Admiralty in 1996. In December 2004 Richard was appointed a governor of the College.

This news came from Gerry Keyworth (R 58-65) who has been installed as a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Shipwrights having just trained as a boat builder after retiring early from BAE Systems in Saudi Arabia. Gerry informs us that he learned to fly, in 1964, at Cambridge Flying Club courtesy of a Royal Air Force scholarship, a route followed by quite a few Framlingham pupils in those days.

On the CCF inspection day in June 1965 he performed a fly past, taking off from Ipswich airfield with the very modest cost paid for by the CCF funds. He is unable to remember who instigated the flight but he thinks it was John Maulden (G 45-50) then OC of the RAF Section. On 9th June this year, forty years after his first fly past, Gerry repeated his feat.

Colin Tremlett (R 47-55) retired a few years ago after spending most of his working career as a consultant anaesthetist in Tauranga in the North Island of New Zealand. Now the grandfather of eight he has spent much of the last few years involved with his daughters and grandchildren and helping one daughter and her husband establish a window and door manufacturing business. At the end of May Colin set off on a five month expedition to see Australia and presumably call on his daughter Kirsten who lives there.

We believe that Colin is probably the only person to have been Head of School for two full academic years ( six terms) from September 1953 to July 1955.( Ed.)

Peter Jay (K 49-56) after a career with the Metropolitan Police retired with the rank of Detective Chief Inspector. He had great experience in complex cases and notably arrested Dennis Nilsen, until recently the UK’s biggest serial killer, taking him to the Central Criminal Court (Old Bailey) for the murder of 15 young men over a five year period. Then for several years he worked for the solicitors to the General Medical and Dental Councils investigating cases of fraud, gross incompetence, negligence indecency and dishonesty. Peter is now Managing Director of Medico Legal Investigations Ltd a company he helped to found.

Robin Smallwood (S82-86) reports: I recently moved down to a village in Hampshire called Longparish with my wife Nicky. The timing was good as we had two months to settle ourselves before the arrival of Oliver, our first child, who was born on 5th February weighing in at 9lbs. Last year we spent 3 months travelling around Australasia visiting extended family before ‘settling down’. Having returned to the UK I have become self-employed offering a wide range of IT services to small/medium-sized businesses as well as private individuals.
