Dear old “Peanut”. He taught me the rudiments of Spanish with great patience. I have contributed the photo of him emerging from the sea at Calafell in 1968.

Peanut was a very keen dinghy sailor and had his own Mirror dinghy which he built from a kit. He kept it at Sutton Coldfield on one of the lakes near the park. He was enthusiastic enough to take pupils out there in his little Simca car to teach us to sail.
