The Club has learnt of the death of Peter John GRIFFITHS (Shallow ’70 -75). His brother, David, writes:
“Peter thoroughly enjoyed his later years at school to which he took a somewhat eccentric approach, eschewing more academic pursuits in favour of flying, shooting, the cliffs & the beach. It is a testament to his affection for the place that his old school jacket still hangs prominently in his cottage and that one of his final ‘long distance’ trips, in the company of an old school friend, was to visit Allhallows and relive some very happy memories.”
Peter’s funeral will be held on 1st August, 12:00hrs at Waltham St Lawrence Parish Church, Berkshire.
The Club’s sympathy and condolences got to the family.
The Club has recently learnt of the death in January 2014 of Richard Rees- Webbe (M ’59 – 64) at his home in Western Australia. The Club’s sympathy and condolences go to Richard’s family and to his brother, Jeremy (M ’55-58)
