What event or personality left a lasting impression on you?
Daniel Massey - Biology master - a large gentleman (a Cambridge rugby Blue) who was a great encouragement in many ways.

Were you a conscientious student?
Not really - until 'A' levels when I suddenly realised that I needed some good 'A' level results to get into a medical school. Daniel Massey was a marvellous motivator/teacher.

Mostly sports. I played a wide range of sports with varying degrees of success.
