'He was a Yorkshireman by birth, who might have appeared at first to strangers as shy and unforthcoming, but behind this apparent diffidence there was a real strength of character and a keen almost anxious enthusiasm: to his intimates he gave a simple, loyal and disinterested friendship. As a leading member of the School Football team for two years, particularly of the 1930 team with its brilliantly successful record, he was given a prominence which never in the least affected his natural modesty. He left School at seventeen and started at once on a successful business career in the North. Always a good son and a good brother, he had married recently and it was his ambition that his young son should follow him to his old School. F.S.P.' (Malvernian, March 1942)
