Dickie Dodds

Interesting to see it was T N Pearce (MaA 17-22, Governor), captain of Essex, who recruited Dodds for that club.

Attack of the Killer Kenworthys

also another David whom was at CH at least part of the time I was there. I only knew him by sight as he was in different forms and houses. I vaguely remember him being in Coleridge A. I also think he became known as Tewson - Kenworthy. Memory could be playing tricks though. This was David Hope Telf...
