'His many School friends will remember him as a boy of an exceptionally happy and cheerful disposition, apparently without a care. Only those who knew him intimately realized that there was another and serious side to his character. It was there all the time, and those who served with him in the Army saw that side, and valued it. He died of wounds, as a prisoner of war, in a German field hospital.' (Malvernian, Nov 1918).
