Ian was a good friend of mine being at school at the same time as me, he was a very good sportsman, and as I told him I don't think I ever beat him at anything, including boxing, which we took part in reluctantly, and were told not to behave like a couple of fairies by Norman Borrett. Then in 2020 we visited him in Majorca and enjoyed a very nice lunch at the golf club near to his house. Much earlier we had all enjoyed a very good evening at the centenary dinner at the school.

Very sad news. Ian was one of the foremost sportsman of the early 1950’s and Captain of Cricket in 1953. An outstanding hockey player after leaving school. Ian was an accomplished businessman in a variety of fields and a staunch supporter of the OF’s.
