What is your most cherished memory from your time at Fettes?

Trying and failing to teach a housemaster about colour.

Carol service led by A Chevenix-Trench, a fine man.

Were you a conscientious student?
Yes, when engaged in something I enjoyed.

Outside the classroom, how did you spend your free time at Fettes?
I spent a lot of time drawing and painting. Otherwise swimming and golf made very agreeable past-times. I do regret not making more use of the excellent extra-curricular activities on offer.
