I'm sure I speak for many old boys when I say how sorry I was to hear about Richard's death.
We was a naturally brilliant teacher, who installed a love of literature in his pupils.
He was one of nature's characters; a real extrovert, who was funny and not afraid to be controversial.I have fond memories of Barry Thorpe's hill walking holidays , where Richard was always fascinating and entertaining company.
He always treated us as equals, yet commanded enormous respect.
I, too, was lucky enough to have a chat with him at the 2001 reunion.
He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
