GrandT. There was another teacher there Mr Bradley. He was bald wore glasses and had a mustache, He had a brother who looked identical to him, maybe a twin. He was also a teacher at another school and sometimes came to visit him in class, it was so hard to tell which was which.
Indifference is the essence of inhumanity

Its lovely to read that memories of my brother Frank are still alive.  He was best man at our wedding and he made a good job of it.
