Historical Records

Born on 16th December, 1922. He was severely wounded at Nijmegen in Holland during the 1939-45 War, through stepping on a newly sown mine, by which he lost a foot, and was wounded severely in the other leg and less severely elsewhere. The Germans were then close, just across the border. Before that he had landed in France on D. Day plus 6 and was in the Caen fighting where, speaking French, he had been in contact with the resistance movement. At present he is active. On demobilisation he entered Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, taking his Tripos in Mechanical Science.
