Geoffrey Morley died in South Africa, where he was on holiday, on , after a short illness. After leaving Heath, he worked at the Union Bank of Manchester until the war. He was in the Dunkirk evacuation and later fought in the North African campaign and the Far East.

After the war, Geoffrey took an Economics degree at Christ Church, Oxford. He worked in the City for Lazards and Shell, and later founded his own financial advising business. He was well known in the City for his shrewd brain. Since 1960 he had lived in Chigwell, Essex. He was a keen sportsman, playing rugby, fives, tennis and golf. Indeed, his wife Betty writes that he was a sportsman to the end, playing golf just a few weeks before his death. She also recalls that Geoffrey was always called ‘the late Mr Morley’ even when at school, as he always arrived at the last minute!

He is survived by his wife, daughter and brother Trevor, to whom we send our condolences.
