David Lewin [Heath 1968–1971]

Peter was a special school friend of mine from 1943 when we both entered Heath senior school. I believe he was also in the junior school and that we became friends from 1940 when I started there, under Mr Moxon. (75 years ago, so forgive my hazy memory.) Peter’s father was a patent agent and a friend of my grandfather, John Stoddart. I spent many happy hours at Peter’s house on Manor Drive (Grasmere Place?) during the war and remember very well the grief of Peter’s family, and my own shock and sadness, when two of Peter’s brothers were killed when on service in the RAF.

Peter was a gentle person in our schooldays, and always a pleasure to be with.

We lost touch when I left Halifax in 1951 and it wasn’t until about two years ago that we got in touch with each other again, through the Heath Old Boys Association website. I am sorry to hear of his death. His family are in my thoughts.
