Vince van der Bijl (1965F) wrote in with the attachments below: "
Tony and Clive at different times sent this letter to me - it meant much to them as it showed the character of the school and its people.
This to me is special - the story of Bishops during WW11
Vincent Wells recognized Tony and Clive van Ryneveld for their character and abilities so early.
I thought it would interest many ODs.
This to me is what school is all about - the soul and school ever-thinking of others
- a letter from the teacher to the boys
- and the teacher receiving a letter from the HM Birt in the desert
and Dad gets a mention
Just a special piece of memorabilia
