Ref: Jack Godwin RIP

Philip Odell (1961-68) writes : Sorry to learn of Jack Godwin. Seemed a pretty decent bloke. I was never in any of his classes, but he did take a group of us in the school bus to visit East Greenwich Gas Works as part of the citizenship course. As the article below infers, his driving was pretty hairy, at one point the knob of the gear lever came off in his hand and he just laughed. (Wandering around a gas works in a temperature of around 80F remains one of the most boring and uncomfortable experiences of my life.)

Eds Note- here is a rare shot of that coach...........
