Thanks Philip Ross May,

You were an inspirational teacher and made geography come alive for a third former. Actually you were an historian and you also began in me an interest in history that has stayed with me all my life. Meeting with an old school friend recently reminded me once again of your influence which in turn inspired me when I became a teacher. You were also an excellent runner who always encouraged us -even the plodders in the group. Such a shame you didn’t live longer to inspire even more students.
