As I said, I was there when he got the nickname 'Killer'. Three or four boys, then in their third year, I think, had a fit of the giggles during Duty (house evening prayers) in Thornton B. He caned them very hard. I was a junior monitor and heard the subsequent talk among these boys and their contemporaries. I can say with certainty that this was the first time I heard the nickname applied.

Well done John.

If and when you know the time of service for those that might wish to attend, perhaps you could post ?

Regretfully, for me, 'Time marches on' and age procludes !!
