I last communicated with ‘Basil’ in the 1990swhen I ordered a copy of his book on the history of the college.
He rememered meeting my mother and myself on the first day that I joined the college in Port Jackson division in September 1963. What a memory!
He later taught me history and I always looked forward to those lessons which he delivered with great enthusiasm.
I always found it very pleasant to be in his company.
A really wonderful person.
