NotesLetter from his father to King’ s College, 13.02.1951. He stated that while his son was in Singapore pending dispersal the visionaries there founded a College and his son was appointed a Lecturer which reflected credit on the teaching at Kings College. For his pupils he had high ranking Officers down to privates. He proved to be most effective and was highly commended by everybody for his happy style and courtesy which he extended to all.
