A (second) "Derek Long" Letter
From: Derek Long (19??-??)
N.B. Derek sent us a similar item last month - That was about Mr. W. S. Griffiths - Here's hoping that there is more to come :-)
This is a photocopy of an article from Esmeduna dated July 1955, sent in by an Old Boy (named Derek Long)
Thank you Derek for this second piece of memorabilia. We seem to remember that Mr Mansell had the nickname "Mobe". Once again, there seems to be a complete mystery as to the origin of this name. Can any member elucidate this matter for us?
Of course, some masters are remembered for other things than classroom activities - Mobe will always be remembered for his " Scout Troop", like Chalkie will always evoke memories of "Chalkie's Army" :-)
