I remember him well and met him a few years ago - he was a great teacher. I have many memories re 'environmental studies' etc.
A real Mr Chips!

Mr Dawe was a very approachable teacher and his encouragement in the years to 'O' level enabled me to 'punch above my weight' in English until my true lack of knowledge and expertise of literature was exposed at 'A' level.
He ran an ornithological club on Hobbies Afternoons when I was a junior and I remember a few interesting and educational trips to observe the various water fowl at Warnham Ponds.
My other enduring memory of him is watching him take apart the Prep bowling attack with a sawn down bat. Despite this apparent handicap sixes galore emerged from the trees bordering the Prep School cricket pitch and endangered any passing traffic in The Avenue!
RIP and condolences to his family.
