a member of the OEA since leaving school, where I had the privilege of
knowing Cyril Broom, Charles Hill, 'Pump' Capt. Hipkins, Taffy Neath DFC

distinguished former pupils are not members of their club. For

My name is Geoff Sewards and I was at Emanuel from 1945-55. Thanks

teaching mathematics at what became Coventry University. I am now retired
