Mr Elgar was out teacher, young and fresh – really quite cool as I remember. A skinny knitted tie and suede desert boots. He kept us engaged and interested in learning. No surprises, his students learnt the meaning of achievement. The class has been very successful, amongst them the youngest (at the time!) 747 pilot and my friend Peter Waddell, an extremely successful artist living in Washington DC.
