'Fitz Porter was a born engineer, but what pleased him even more than engineering was to tackle anything in School or out of it with an unconquerable perseverance. This was the characteristic that marked him out for the position of prefect and showed every promise of success in the future. News of his fatal accident brought a genuine regret to all who knew anything of him and had formed high hopes of his career; but they will ever remember how inspired they have been by his generous friendship, his cheery optimism, and his fixed resolve to go straight and hard.' (Malvernian, Jul 1917).
